Frederic Remington High School is a rural public high school located north of Brainerd, Kansas between Whitewater and Potwin at NW Meadowlark Rd and NW 90th St. It is one of three schools operated by Remington USD 206 public school district. This school is also commonly known as Remington High School as the shorter name, and Whitewater-Remington High School on KSHSAA sport lists.

History

In 1961, Whitewater, Potwin, Brainerd, Elbing, Furley, Countryside, and Golden Gate schools merged to form a joint rural high school. Heated opposition between Whitewater and Potwin occurred during the discussion for the location of the new high school. Rural voters pushed for a centralized location in neither town. A public vote was taken to determine if the school should be built halfway between Whitewater and Potwin, near Brainerd, which passed 745 "yes" to 155 "no".[10] A contest was held to find a unique name for the new high school, which was chosen to honor the famous American Old West artist Frederic Remington who lived about 4 miles north in the 1880s.[10] USD 206 covers an area of 253 square miles (660 km2) in Butler, Harvey, and Sedgwick counties.[10]

In 2006, the Remington Rock monument was built near the high school.
