I was a student in the other school that was on that property in the mid 50's and it was called St Thomas on the hill Orphanage. One of the students in my grade her brother received the Noble Prize for Medicine In 1995. . Oliver A Pettit

The other post from a parent on June 23 was right on. The teachers are slightly to blame, but they are put in a bad position. You think they WANT to teach at that school? It was probably either that or unemployment. The students have no hope. I am a person of average intelligence. I'm no genius by far. When I went to this school I was awarded a plaque for the highest GPA in the school. This is not a joke. I still have the wooden plaque with the red plate. This is by no means an accomplishment on my part. I hardly cracked a book. The students are a lost cause, and in my honest opinion don't have the intelligence needed to vote in an election that determines the direction of a nation.

This is a great school to send your students if they are unique and have spiecal talentss like footbal , basketball , baseball, and track. Also, we have a great dance and drama department.

I think Ossie ware is one of the worst schools in Birmingham. THE teachers have a lack of teaching ability and the behavior of the students is deplorable. If there isn't something done about it our students are going to be lost.
