About the LENS School
Learning and Exploring through Nature and Science
In August 2019, Kearney School District introduced LENS (Learning and Exploring through Nature and Science) as our first Museum School, located in the north wing of Kearney Junior High School.
Modeled after other place-based schools, including the Omaha Zoo Academy and Springfield's WOLF School, KSD's LENS School is a lottery-based choice school with representation from all four elementary buildings. LENS was expanded this year and has 133 third- through fifth-graders.
Tell me and I forget;
Teach me and I will remember;
Involve me and I will learn.
