What does everyone think of the "New" Super High School? 3400 students divided into one building for 9 & 10, 11 & 12 in the other. Is this the "wave of the future" for budget solutions? Please comment!!!! Older Oshkosh people have never accepted North High and always wanted one high school. They do this alot in ILL.

Why not? If its one school its one school.

Do what West Bend East and West Bend West do, they share the same school, gymnasium, and practice fields...do the same thing.

SPASH has over 2,500 kids in 10-12. Imagine if they would put the freshman in the school, they would have over 3,000 kids. That is too many kids in one school. I think if Oshkosh would go to one high school make it 10-12 only. So, it would be fewer kids to deal with in the high school.


Read the article, they are talking two buildings, one 9-10 and the other 11-12. Doing that you could have Frosh and JV housed at one building and Varsity housed at the other.

I have to think there is no way the WIAA would let that school play as a whole. They would split it up, or have to, IMO.

It's not up to the WIAA. If the school district decides to have just one high school, then it's just one high school.

I know of one school district in Minnesota who splits their high school this way (9-10 in one building and 11-12 in another). They aren't dominant in sports by any means. Financially, I don't know how it saves money. You still have the same number of students in the same number of buildings. I think it limits opportunities for kids to participate. There will be a lot of good to average athletes that won't get the chance to participate on the Varsity level. That's a big negative to me.

Athletics are important and creating just one athletic program probably won't work.

Too few opportunities for kids to compete.
3,400 kids and only 30 or so (boys & girls) would play varsity basketball?

West Bend has one building ... one gym, one swim pool but two schools (East and West).

Maybe they could have a draft as freshmen [:-]

wcb_sas and SeedtThrower are absolutely right! The one thing you have to keep in mind is that you can only play with 11 players at a time on a football field and you can only play with 5 on a basketball court so the notion of Oshkosh being a "Super Power" in sports may be a little over stated.

The problem will be the available spots for participants on the teams of all of the various sports. Would be student athletes could lose interest very quickly if they know that they don't have much of a chance to play a sport that they enjoy playing. In the end you have a lot of kids with nothing to do which would be very sad. You almost have to devise a way to incorporate more participation so that more kids have a chance to not only play sports, but to participate in all of the other activities that are available. Dealing with that many kids in one school is crazy in my book.
