USD 383 has a rich history built upon the efforts of many individuals who firmly believed in the importance of public education to this community. We are proud of the tremendous breadth and depth of success attained by past and current students, and embrace expectations for continued success that are engrained in staff, parents, students, and the community-at-large.
With 6500 students, USD 383 is large enough to provide a broad array of challenging educational and extracurricular programs, yet small enough to sustain strong relationships between students and caring adults. The sentiment that we are “just the right size” extends beyond the school district, as Manhattan-Ogden is a diverse, dynamic and close-knit community that takes pride in providing a safe and supportive environment for living and learning.
We are fortunate to have tremendous support from Manhattan-Ogden’s higher education, military, business and faith communities, all of which share our belief that setting high standards for all students creates a greater opportunity for future success. Working together, we take seriously our goal of ensuring students are well equipped for lifelong success at increasingly higher levels of academic growth, social-emotional development, and postsecondary preparation.
USD 383 wants people to be informed as we move forward with construction projects, social-emotional learning, grade level reconfiguration, instructional technology, and other priorities. This website will serve as a great conduit for information, so I encourage you to explore our new layout and to revisit often for updates on school events, student and staff recognitions, and more.
Thanks again for visiting our website.
