Sibley-Ocheyedan High School is a 7-12 building with approximately 350 students and 40 staff members. Sibley-Ocheyedan is a progressive rural school district that strives to draw the best from each and every student. We are a 1:1 initiative school, where students are loaned a chrome-book for the academic year. In addition to their core classes, we want to enhance learning with 21st century learning skills (financial literacy, investing, college and job applications, as well as options to secure financial security entering adulthood.) We believe that every student is capable of learning at a high level, however, we are responsible for challenging them to go beyond their comfort zone.
At Sibley-Ocheyedan High School we are committed to academic excellence provided in a safe and secure environment. We strongly believe school should be a safe place where students can grow academically, socially and emotionally within our walls. Our district is blessed to have an outstanding staff dedicated to helping young men and women excel to their highest level of achievement.
