The declining amount of state aid in the 1980's led to the consolidation of educational funds between the villages of Big Springs and Brule, Nebraska.The communities decided to combine their sports and activities programs to make up for this lack of financial aid.Over the years more programs were combined, leading to the complete consolidation of the schools in 1995.K-12 classes are presently held on the Big Springs campus, the Brule campus now being utilized by businesses within the community.Big Springs is located approximately 20 miles west of Ogallala, Nebraska, and the school is located on 610 Plum Street.
