I am a graduate of OHS and don't tell anyone that. It barely covers the basics. I guess when you take into consideration the amount of students who will actually continue into college, the school is doing fine. There is NO push for higher education because majority of graduates will never set foot in a college let alone have the determination to graduate from one. From personal experience alone, I can honestly say that OHS is terribly below par. I was in the "gifted" program and was shocked when I moved out of state for college. If you are okay with settling on doing nothing in life, then OHS is a great place to be.
I HAVE 2 CHILDREN CURRENTLY AT OHS,HAVE AN OLDER SON WHO GRADUATED FROM THERE. I LOVE THE SMALL TOWN,EVERYBODY KNOWS EVERYBODY,ATMOSPHERE.STAFF SEEM TO BE GOOD AT THIS TIME,WE ARE PROUD TO BE INDIANS !![BOTH MY BOYS PLAY FOOTBALL,WITHOUT ANY PRESSURE,ITS MY JOB TO SEE THAT NO ONE PRESSURE'S THEM,SO WE ALL ARE HAPPY !!]
I have one child attending Ohatchee High School and for the most part it seems to be an average school. I wouldn't advise parents to allow their children to participate in a 'sports' program though. From what I have seen, the children don't really get to 'enjoy' it but are highly pressured.
The Principal never seems to be available. Most of the teachers seem to be trying but the education level just is not what it should be. Ms. Scott seems to have a good hand on things though. She can really communicate and get her point and thoughts across to the kids.
