OSKALOOSA, IA — Enrollment in the Oskaloosa Community School District has increased by 46 students this school year, according to the Iowa Department of Education.
The latest numbers indicate a reversal of the decreases in enrollment the district has experienced in recent years. Certified enrollment at Osky Schools totals 2,255 this year, an increase of 46 students from the previous year.
Even with an increase in enrollment, the district continues to feature small class sizes, with an average of 18 students per class in elementary and 16 students per class in secondary.
“It is great to see our numbers heading toward pre-COVID-19 levels as more families enroll their students in our schools,” said Mike Fisher, Osky Schools Superintendent. “This growth is a very good thing for our district. Should this enrollment growth trend continue, we will continue to keep small classes a priority in order to provide the best possible academic experience for each and every student.”
Osky Schools delivers a diverse and expanding curriculum to its students. The district features one of the largest selection of courses for students in the area.
