The academic rigor at Onalaska High School really encourages students to try their best in all subjects. Support from teachers and faculty is a big help in preparing students for college courses and achieving any academic goals a student might have. Our counselors are able to offer many opportunities for students to volunteer, job shadow, and even take college classes in order to give students a clear picture of what they want to do before they choose their major. Although some of our extra curricular programs are in need of a revamp, our show choir, basketball, football, and dance team programs are a great way to meet new people and still be within a competitive atmosphere.

We moved from another state just before my kids' junior and senior years. Onalaska staff and faculty made my children's transitions much easier and helped them feel welcome. We were especially impressed by the resources and teachers they have for students with special needs. Our son, who is on the autism spectrum, although very high functioning, grew more in one year at OHS than he did in 3 years at his previous high school.
Many classes offered. Not a small town type of school, but its relatively safe and offers many different classes and resources. Counslers are great (we have 3) plus we have a therapy dog!
