Oskaloosa Comm School District


About Our District Education is prominently on display in Oskaloosa whether students are showcasing their award-winning orchestra or band programs, competing nationally in robotics, or visiting China’s Heibei Province through our international exchange program. The District enjoys strong community support. Students are served in state-of-the-art air conditioned facilities constructed and renovated in 2002 when the community approved a local option sales tax. The referendum allowed the District to merge five elementary school buildings into one efficient facility serving K-5 grade students. The Middle School, grades 6-8, and High School, grades 9-12, are located on a single campus in buildings that were renovated in 2002. The Middle and High Schools are connected by the George Daily Auditorium, a 695-seat facility for student and community use. Eight professional, off-Broadway productions, the Oskaloosa Symphony Orchestra, and a year-round children’s theater program are all supported from this venue which averages 558 events annually. The District offers an Alternative Learning Center for senior high students, an Indian Hills Career Academy, AP coursework through William Penn University, and free 4- year-old preschool to prepare our youngest students for school readiness, and our older students for college or the workplace. In 2017-18 the OCSD launched a home-school assistance program. About Our City Oskaloosa is a diverse, micropolitan community offering big-city amenities. We are a ‘headquarter’ community for locally-owned businesses who are advanced manufacturing industry leaders and provide solutions for global customers. A high-speed fiber optic system delivers world-class, gigabit communication solutions, capable of growing with the changes and demands of our schools, business and families. Our historic downtown is a hub for shopping, live music and dining and has been voted one of America’s Most Beautiful Downtowns by Travel & Leisure magazine. Wellness and learning are a priority, evidenced by our state-of-the-art hospital and schools. Walkers and bikers love our 15-mile trail and, with more than 200 acres of sports facilities, all you need is a bat or ball to get into the game!
