Omaha Public Schools is undertaking a major green initiative that is designed to make OPS one of the most energy and resource efficient school districts in the country. In doing so, the District is prepared to save hundreds of thousands of dollars and significantly lighten its impact on the environment.
In the Omaha Public Schools, excellence is our standard. Our goal is to provide all students with the high-quality instruction needed to prepare for life in tomorrow's high-tech world.
We are proud of our students, our staff, our special programs and our national ranking. Omaha Public Schools belongs to the North Central Association and is one of the country's few major urban school districts to maintain state AA accreditation.
Our test scores exceed the national average for large school districts. Our graduates receive more than $25 million in scholarship offers annually while over 61 percent go to college or other post-secondary schools.
Our programs are just as diverse as the students we serve. Our magnet schools offer special instruction in math, performing arts, languages, communications, economics, technology, university partnerships, science, engineering and international studies. These programs have become so popular with parents and students that selection is now a coveted honor.
Students have opportunities for advanced studies in virtually every subject area including all the core curriculum, music, art and physical education.
A well-rounded athletic and physical education program has produced professional athletes and Olympic gold medalists, while instilling in all students the importance of "fitness for life."
