I think this is a great school. I do think parents at this school often blame the faculty/administration for things that should be handled at home. The teachers really seem to care and help my child as much as possible. Some students however need to realize they have a responsibility as well. Especially if they are 16 and don't realize they are in the wrong class.

I have a child at this HS and I am very pleased with the program both academics and athletics. My child is in the honors track and we have had excellent teachers.

I have went to this school since I was in the 3rd grade. I love it. Everyone is very nice. Yes we do take pride in our football. But most every school does. Our Principal is great. And since Mr.Terry has come long alot of things have gotten in to order.

I have two sons at this school. One is very self motivated and therefore he soars through classes effortlessly. My other son has always had trouble paying attention (not ADD, he just doesn't care about school) and it seems that the principal, counselors, and teachers all could care less. I suppose it's because he's not a football player, or on any teams for that matter. It seems to be impossible to receive any help from anyone at the school and everytime I call for the principal, assistant principal or a counselor they are never in their office and almost never return calls. Horrible school to send children to if you are expecting anything from the teachers or administration.

I am an employee at another school in St. Clair County but my child attends SCCHS by choice, his and mine. There are great students at this school and most of the faculty would be an asset anywhere. They really care and sad to say that is rare sometimes. I would recommend to anyone to send their child here.

As a former student, I would have to say that Odenville has to be one of the best school i've ever attended, I have recently enrolled in another school but there is none like this one and always remember that I still attend that school by spirit.

I am a former student of SCCHS. I was a cheerleader, softball player and volleyball player all through high school. I can tell you one thing: I do agree that this school emphasizes the football program and they do not show enough support to the band. I did make great grades and the teachers are caring, so long as the student is. I would prefer my son didn't attend this school. Although, I have to say, since Coach Lee is no longer the head coach, I would consider sending my son there.

I have a child at this high school, another coming soon and I work there. Let it be known, I have not seen a more caring principle since elem. school. As far as football being very important, yes it's true, but academic clubs are active too. Every school has issues but the problems at this school a far less than most in Birmingham.

I have yet to be impressed with this school. My step-son has been home schooled by his mother since 3rd grade. He is Very behind in math. They placed him in 9th grade (he just turned 16) and is failing math with only a 38. I have asked several times about tutoring for him and have Still gotten no response. The Principal says 'That isn't my job' speak to the councilor. I have spoken to both of them and still nothing. He spent the first 2 weeks attending 2 wrong classes. No one noticed. He got a notice of absence. I told him to go to the office and check with them. Only then did they realize he was in the wrong Math class. I had to personally go in and ask why he never had home work nor did he have text books. He was attending Drama instead of History.

As parents with 2 sons still in high school,we are soon moving into the Odenville area.After reading the 2 reviews from parents that now appear here,I am reluctant to send my sons to Odenville.Both boys are very heavy into baseball,basketball,and football. We as parents demand good grades from the both of them.So I guess they will remain in the private school they now attend after we move to Odenville. Thank you...Art Palmer Trussville,Al.

As a parent of St. Clair County Schools I would have to say that they are lacking in alot but, they are striving to make better improvements in academics. The football thing is a little over board they dont even cheer for their own band they just luv the Jocks. But, as far as teachers and caring go they are an A+ School.

Very little emphasis is placed on academics at this school. This is a Football school, plain and simple!
