Campus High School was established in 1960 with the name, Rural High School District 191. At the time, it served several communities including Oatville, South Riverside, and Enterprise. The name "Campus" was chosen by the students who were to attend the new high school. The following year, the Wichita district annexed part of the high school, reducing the student population by nearly half and causing large public sentiment. The annexed buildings would remain empty from 1961 until Freeman Elementary School was relocated to the site in 1966. Campus has had four additions to the original facility in the past 40 years.
The school underwent renovation to turn it into a single building. The renovation includes a new, larger cafeteria, a new library, and new offices, as well as renovations on all of the other buildings except "J", now renamed "F" building, the science building. The renovation was completed before the 2008-09 school year. The courtyard, media center, and theatre were all completed in December 2008.
The Colts compete in the Ark Valley Chisholm Trail League and are classified as a 6A school, the largest classification in Kansas according to the Kansas State High School Activities Association. Throughout its history, Campus has won 7 state championship. In recent years, Derby High School has become their main rival.
