Osseo Area Schools serves all or portions of the northwest Minneapolis suburbs of Brooklyn Center, Brooklyn Park, Maple Grove, Osseo, Plymouth, Corcoran, Dayton and Hassan. The district has 19 elementary schools (grades Kindergarten-6), four junior highs (grades 7-9), three senior highs (grades 10-12), an area learning center (grades 9-12), early childhood sites, a special education transition center for young adults, and a site for community education programming. As a comprehensive preK-12 school district, Osseo prepares students for college, post-secondary vocational training, and the job market.
Elementary schools focus on reading and math achievement. Students also receive instruction in writing, research, science, social studies, physical education, and the arts. Literacy in technology, media, and information retrieval is taught within subject areas. Many schools offer a variety of programs such as “Be Four” preschool, all-day kindergarten, multi-age classrooms, and team teaching. Title I programs provide academic support to improve reading and math skills through individualized plans for improvement.
Junior high schools offer middle-level programming designed to let students sample elective courses and advance according to aptitude.
Senior high schools offer more than 250 basic, advanced, online, and elective courses--including calculus, advanced math and science courses. Each senior high school offers three years of French, German, and Spanish.
Secondary students who would benefit from an alternative learning environment can attend the District's area learning center (Osseo Area Learning Center) for a non-traditional, individualized learning experience that provides a range of support services.
Every school provides a wide variety of talented and gifted program services--from enrichment services at the elementary level to secondary-level advanced classes in English, math, science, and social studies.
District 279's highly-ranked special education program provides services from birth to high school graduation or age 22. Whenever possible, services are provided in regular classroom settings with children of the same age.
Renovation and construction across the district that began in Spring 2001 has been completed. The multi-year projects improved facilities and added classroom space.
