Typical small town school. The children with parents that work at the school have a lot more pull than other students.

Wonderful, wonderful school. As with most schools, there are issues that are faced within education that parents that are on the outside looking in have all the answers for, i.e., tight budgets, NCLB, tests, federal mandates, 15-20 students in a classroom with different learning needs, and teachers that work above and beyond to make it work. What more can you ask for?

This school does not promote educational excellence. If your child has special needs and wants to be babysat - then Osage is your school. If your child is exceptionally bright, and wants to be bored to tears - then go to Osage. If you like teachers who don't pay attention to your complaints and live in the world of last year's accomplishments then go to USD 420. Some good teachers live a frustrated life trying to deal with an administration that does not want to change. Even when a group of parents tries to voice concerns, their voices are shouted down by those in charge who can't take constructive criticism. My family no longer attends Osage City, although we continue to hope it improves for the better.

I have 2 children that go to this school. We had some trouble in the begin of the year with my daughter she is in kindergarden. The teachers and staff work with me to find out what the problem was and worked it out.

I have had six children graduate from this school. Their experience was fantastic. Many former students have moved back to Osage City just so that their own children could attend school there. The band is award-winning. Students have the ability to take dual-credit classes in high school to receive college credit. Excellent teachers and strong leadership are the key. I highly recommend this school.

This district is mediocre at best with some hard working teachers in a system that works against them. Weak administration. The school board is not parent-friendly. Have felt too many times that children's best interests was not in mind.

After a bad experiance last year in Burlingame. Mrs. Wischropp's first grade in Osage City was the sunniest addition to our daughter's educational life. Not only did she keep my daughter challenged, but also kept the classroom in harmony. I would give six stars if I could.

Not impressed. This district lacks leadership from its administration. Textbooks are old, teachers are not enthused about their job. Nice building but it is what goes on inside that counts.
