Peabody-Burns Junior/Senior High School is a public secondary school in Peabody, Kansas, United States. It is the sole high school operated by Peabody–Burns USD 398 school district, and serves students of grades 7 to 12. The school serves the communities of Peabody, Burns, Wonsevu, and nearby rural areas of Marion / Chase / Harvey / Butler Counties.
The first school in Peabody was organized in 1871. The first school building, two stone rooms, was built in 1872 on the northeast corner of Maple and 2nd. The first high school classes were taught in 1879, and the first graduation class in 1881 consisted of 2 students.
In 1923, the first high school was built at 900 North Walnut Street for grades 9 to 12. Prior to the opening of this high school, all grades went to the same school building.
In 1946–1947, the School Reorganization Act consolidated many one-room rural schools into the Peabody school district.
In 1953, the Brown Building was built, across the street, to house a larger gymnasium, band / lunch room, and vocational agriculture rooms.
In 1965, the Burns and Summit school districts were unified with Peabody to form Unified School District 398. The Burns High School in Burns, Kansas was closed, as was the rural Summit school that was located between Peabody and Burns.
In 1997, the current high school was built (and attached) to the south side the existing Brown Building at 810 North Sycamore Street. Soon afterward, the former 1923 high school across the street was demolished and converted into a football practice field. The Burns Grade School, which included a junior high, was closed in Burns, Kansas.
Currently all students in the USD 398 district attend schools in Peabody.
The high school marching band is well known in competitions, and especially popular in regional parades. The high school is a member of T.E.E.N., a shared video teaching network, started in 1993, between five area high schools.
In the 2010–2011 school year, Peabody-Burns Junior High School had an enrollment of 63 students, and Peabody-Burns High School had an enrollment of 105 students.
The sports offered are Basketball, Bowling, Cross Country, Cheerleading, Football, Golf, Softball, Track, Volleyball, Wrestling. The mascot is a Warrior. All high school athletic and non-athletic competition is overseen by the Kansas State High School Activities Association. For 2010/2011 seasons, the football team competes as Class 8 Man - Division I in the Wheat State league.
