Derby Schools

There are 9 elementary schools, a sixth grade center, two middle school and one high school in the USD 260 school district.

Derby High School

Look no more, Derby High School is it! Derby High School has supported a strong tradition in education for over 100 years. DHS students have the opportunity to learn of and become a part of her rich history, which starts the moment they step through the door. This environment is then cultivated on the strength of an amazing student body, staff, and surrounding community. DHS students can immerse themselves in rigorous academic schedules, participate in championship level athletic programs, and be a part of one or more of over fifty extra-curricular activities and/or organizations. All the while, students benefit from “real world” experiences that enrich their high school career.

Derby High School stands above other area schools due to unique course offerings and co-curricular opportunities. Derby High School offers an accredited pre-engineering program, title Project Lead The Way (PLTW), cultivating real world math and science skills. Languages are expanded with English Language Learner services and an American Sign Language class, which may lead to an interpreter certification. Courses providing interaction with therapy dogs, student mentoring, broadcasting, and accelerated use of technology give exposure to experiences beyond the typical classroom. Additionally, DHS is one of few schools in the nation offering courses in airbrush.

A student will not only feel the support of the school but the community as well. Strong relationships exist among businesses in the Derby community, McConnell Air Force Base, and the school district. These positive working relationships allow unique learning opportunities. One example is a Finance/Accounting Career pathway, stemming from a partnership between Derby High School and Versus Bank. Students learn about banking, finance, and accounting while working in a fully-functional Verus Bank Branch, operating right out of the DHS commons.

Derby– History

In the early spring of 1869, the Alexander Garrett family brought their covered wagon to a stop on the bank of Spring Creek after a long journey from Ohio. They took out a claim and later built a sod house, and that’s where the city known today as Derby began. The city was formed by Hart Minnich and John Hufbauer when they filed a plat on July 11, 1871. Hufbauer was originally from an area near El Paso, Illinois and decided the new city should bear the name El Paso.

By 1880, the railroad had pushed farther south, and the mail for El Paso, Kan. and El Paso, Texas was constantly mixed up. To ease this problem, the railroad depot was named Derby, after one of the railroad officials, C.F. Derby. Gradually, residents began to call the town Derby. When the town of about 300 was formally incorporated on June 1, 1903 as a city of the third class with a mayor-council form of government by the Board of Sedgwick County Commissioners, it was still named El Paso. It was not until 1956 that the name was officially changed from El Paso to Derby.

The first city building in Derby was constructed in the 1880s. When a new building was built in 1966 on Baltimore Ave., the original structure was moved to the Old Cowtown Museum in Wichita for historic preservation. In 1990, a new city hall and library building opened on east Madison Avenue at Mulberry Street. In 2001, a new city hall opened north of the library, and the old city hall was converted into a senior center.
