Welcome to Ottumwa High School!
Home of the Bulldogs

The Ottumwa High School staff and I look forward to working with you to make the 2018 - 2019 school year a successful and positive experience for you and ALL students we serve.  The Vision of the Ottumwa Community School District is to Engage, Educate, and Empower every student every day! 

The talented teachers and support staff of OHS are dedicated to meeting the needs of ALL students.  We embrace the individual uniqueness of ALL that attend OHS.  We are committed to inspiring every student to think, learn, achieve, and care in a safe and supportive school environment.  Please do not hesitate to let me or any staff member know if you ever have any concerns so we may help address and resolve them.

To expand your high school experience and best prepare for your post high school pursuits, we encourage you to take an active role in educational opportunities both within and outside the classroom. In addition to Ottumwa High School’s comprehensive and rigorous educational program there are numerous student activities available to you.  The Student Planner lists many of the clubs and activities we invite you to join.

The Ottumwa High School staff and I look to partner with you in your learning.  Attend school each day to better yourself and our school community.  


Go Bulldogs!
