Oconomowoc High School

Oconomowoc High School has a proud tradition of excellence in academics, arts and athletics.  OHS is one of only 11 International Baccalaureate (IB) schools in Wisconsin which demands high performance by students in a pre-university course of study that is recognized around the world.  IB students are well prepared for university work; most earn considerable college-level credits while in high school, accelerating their post-secondary education.  The first group of OHS students who had been in the IB Program for four years graduated in 2009; they exited high school with an average of 30 college credits.  OHS also offers a full compliment of AP classes and transcripted courses.

In addition, OHS boasts an award-winning Field House with seating for 2,000 spectators of basketball, volleyball and many other indoor sports within 35,000 sq. ft. of gym space.  The state-of-the-art wood and synthetic flooring system is resilient for use by intense, multiple sports.  The Field House also features five gym dividers, 14 glass backboards and a 160-meter, four-lane, 42” lane track. 

The Oconomowoc Tennis Center, a collaborative project of the Oconomowoc Area School District, the Oconomowoc Parks and Recreation Department and the Oconomowoc Community Tennis Association, provides state-of-the-art lighted courts for school and community use and competition at the high school campus.

The Oconomowoc Arts Center (OAC) services the school district and region by creating and promoting district, community and professional cultural events with the mission to entertain and educate.  The OAC Main Stage Theater seats 755 people with luxurious comfort and consummate acoustics.

Nature Hill and Silver Lake Intermediate Schools

The Nature Hill and Silver Lake intermediate schools opened in 2008 and are designed specifically for students in grades 5 to 8.  The schools are identical in structure and layout with differences in cosmetic design.  The schools are 124,000 sq. ft. with room to accommodate approximately 800 students.  The accessible buildings feature four science labs, a premier library/media center and pre-engineering technology lab, a competitive-level gym with lockers, multiple art rooms and graphics lab, a performing stage, and three music rooms to house band, choir and orchestra.  Both locations have exceptional technology options to support instructional programming.  Every classroom has a networked teaching computer, LCD projector, audio/visual system and presentation technology.

Greenland, Ixonia, Meadow View, Park Lawn and Summit Elementary Schools

Five elementary schools serve students from attendance areas across the 13 municipalities that make up the Oconomowoc District, creating a neighborhood feel for students and families in grades 4K through 4.  Each site offers half-day 4-year-old Kindergarten (with a wrap-around care option provided by Mary Linsmeier Schools), full-day 5-year-old Kindergarten and stimulating classrooms for grades 1 through 4.  Each school is supported by District curriculum in all subject areas as well as art, music and physical education taught by specialists and full special education and enriched instructional services.  Early childhood and pupil services support the environment necessary for learning in the early years.  Multiple sites also host community before and after school extended child care.
