Public Schools

The value the citizens of Cowley County place on education is readily apparent in their schools. The two largest school districts are USD 465 in Winfield and USD 470 in Arkansas City. As examples of this emphasis; the Winfield district is well known for its program rich curriculum and the Arkansas City Schools are in the midst of a comprehensive program of facility upgrades.

All area schools offer broad curriculum choices to meet the needs of all their students. Arkansas City and Winfield are among five area schools working with Cowley College in the School to Work initiative.
