Best Public Schools in Onamia, MN


The city of Onamia, Minnesota is home to 6 schools, including 2 elementary schools, 2 high schools, and 2 alternative schools. The schools in this area serve a diverse student population, with a significant Native American representation ranging from 37.59% to 100% across the different schools. However, the data reveals stark disparities in academic performance, with Onamia High School performing relatively better than the other schools in the district.

The elementary and alternative schools in Onamia face significant challenges, with low test scores, high dropout rates, and poor statewide rankings. For example, Onamia Primary School has the lowest statewide ranking, consistently ranking in the bottom 20% of Minnesota elementary schools, while Nay-Ah-Shing School, an alternative school with a 100% Native American student population, has the highest free/reduced lunch rate and the lowest student-teacher ratio, suggesting the unique needs of this student group.

The presence of two alternative schools in the Onamia Public School District and the Nay-Ah-Shing School district indicates a recognition of the need for specialized educational programs. However, the poor performance of Kokesh Area Learning Center, with an 18.1% four-year graduation rate and a 9% dropout rate, suggests that more work is needed to ensure the effectiveness of these alternative options and address the challenges faced by economically disadvantaged students in the Onamia area.
