Owatonna Public School District Reviews

The Owatonna Public School District is impressive. Their teachers are caring and always wants to help you grow in character and intellectually. Their High School courses are phenomenal, going from Calculus I to Calculus II and Human Genetics and Human Biology. Their courses push students to increase their knowledge and help them for the future. Something that could be improved is the High School in general: it is a bit outdated and could use some modernization and updates. Overall, this school district is very impressive.

I had an interesting school experience. There’s a lot that the principals and administrators should change on the way they handle certain things. The teachers are nice for the most part and others, shouldn’t be teachers.
I had a great school experience in Owatonna! There wasn't much diversity which would have been cool to grow up with, but Owatonna as a town isn't very diverse. I loved most of my teachers and there are a lot of activities to get involved in!
