Garden County Schools district curriculum is aligned to the Nebraska State Standards in the four main content areas:  Reading, Math, Science, and Social Studies.  Students at Garden County are assessed in these four areas, and the results are reported to the states for grades 4, 8, and 11.  To view the state standards, please click on the link above.

As of October 21, 2010, Garden County Schools' Statewide Writing Assessment Results for 2009-2010 were available to the public on the NDE web site:  The information shows the percentage of our students in grades 4, 8, and 11 who met or exceeded the state writing standards last year.  These results show that Garden County  students continue to perform above the state norm.  During last year's school term 88% of our district's 4th grade students, 95% of the participating 8th grade students, and 100% of Garden County High School's juniors met or exceeded the State of Nebraska's writing standards.  Proficient writers possess the critical thinking skills and academic foundation our students should have to perform successfully in all other content areas.  

The Nebraska Department of Education publishes a State of the Schools Report, often referred to as the State Report Card.  This site gives parents and patrons information about standard assessment on the state, district, and local level.  To access this information, navigate to the following site:  NDE State of the Schools Report.  Click on the red School District button at the top of the page.  Identify the school district (Garden County Schools), town (Oshkosh), or county (Garden County) and click on Search.  A Garden County Schools link will appear and let you view details about the district's profile and student performance.
