We chose open enrollment for our family because of all the opportunities Oskaloosa Community Schools provides – both in and outside of the classroom.

Oskaloosa Schools provides an exceptional experience for all students & staff to excel & become the best versions of themselves through the power of learning. Oskaloosa thrives on hard work & dedication to improvement, & that approach is emulated every day.

We feel that our children are seen and treated for who they are as a whole person, not just a "number" at Oskaloosa Schools. Making the transition from a smaller school was seemingly flawless. Open enrolling to Osky was one of the best decisions we have made as parents.
