    Okoboji Middle School administration staff teachers and students have been great for my child. We had serious problems with the other school in our area. We have a bit of a drive now I only wish we had made the change 2 years ago or more. Thanks to all in the district your greatly appreciated.

    This school is the best in Northwest Iowa! My son coming from a school district about 15 miles away was way behind. The teachers did everything to help him and is now excelling. The staff does not play 'favorites' or the 'name game' everyone is treated the same. There does not seem to be any clicks.
