The school system here offers low student to teacher ratios (20:1, average) which helps to ensure personalized attention for better pupil development and performance.  For collegiate students, Osakis offers access to excellent nearby schools such as Alexandria Technical College (10 miles away), MN State Community and Technical College-Fergus Falls ( 50 miles away), St. Cloud State University (55 miles away) and Concordia College – Moorhead ( 120 miles away).
