Community

Located in southwest Butler and northeast Sedgwick counties, Remington School District offers the comforts of quiet, safe, family-centered community life. The four small towns provide banking, grocery stores, service stations, and restaurants, as well as a variety of small businesses. Excellent medical facilities are located just minutes away in Newton, El Dorado, and Wichita. Quality care for citizens needing assistance is available from Wheat State Manor or through the Sunflower Apartment Complex, both in Whitewater.

While the district is largely rural and provides the friendly atmosphere of a small community, the advantages of a large city are not far away. The three schools are directly off of highway K196, halfway between Newton (population 19,500) and El Dorado (population 12,500). The district's proximity to Wichita provides access to entertainment provided by professional sports teams, the nationally recognized Sedgwick County Zoo, and Wichita Symphony.

The El Dorado Lake and the Harvey County East Lake provide camping, boating, skiing, swimming and fishing opportunities. Hunting opportunities abound for species including pheasant, quail, prairie chicken, dove, deer, migratory birds, and turkey.

Cultural, educational and civic opportunities are available through Butler County Community College in El Dorado, Bethel College in Newton and Wichita State University.
