We have eight great schools, over 900 incredible staff, and just over 5,000 outstanding students and numerous community education programs
for residents of all ages. We are so incredibly fortunate that our community supports our education system. Your ongoing support helps to keep Owatonna a vibrant community. Thanks to voter approval in 2015, we are now celebrating the opening of Owatonna Middle School and McKinley Elementary. Both buildings have undergone major renovations to improve the learning spaces for our 21st century learners. We are also in the process of improving Lincoln Elementary and Washington Elementary to improve the learning environments and add valuable learning space. Our newly named "Owatonna Education Center" is home to Early Childhood Special Education and our Area Learning Center.
Many thanks to our community partners and businesses who made the Our Community, Our Schools special section in the Owatonna People's Press possible through their advertising dollars; district funds were not used to pay for its publication.
