Former schools[edit]

Oshkosh East High School was an alternative high school in Oshkosh. Established in 2004, it was located in a leased building on Washington Avenue that also housed the Journeys Charter School.[2] The school had about 80 enrolled students; together with its related New Start program, it served about 100 students. The school was the subject of some controversy because of its low graduation rate.[3] The school had about ten staff members. It was closed in June 2010 amid public concern over increased class sizes at North and West high schools and proposals to consolidate middle and elementary schools in the district due to financial troubles.[4]
