Opelika HS is a great school. The faculty and staff do a remarkable job every day with students. They are very effective and caring about the students and programs there. It is one of the 'better' schools i the state and region.
The school itself has many leaks and broken walls. Many of the teachers are very 'set in their ways' so non conventional students and parents have some issues. T lot of the teachers are very good at teaching and do everything in their power to help students. The school does have a great football program, as well as band, choir groups, and theater. All in all the school is a good school but it does have problems
Opelika High School is a great school, but there are some down sides. It has great theater, band, and football program, and great classes; however, the need for repair is great and 'proration' isn't exactly helping in that area.
I was raised in Opelika City Schools along with my 6 siblings. My four children were educated in Opelika City Schools. I also teach in OCS. There is no better place for those who value a good education. Opelika always goes far beyond what is required to give our kids a first class education. I am proud to say we strongly believe in Opelika City Schools.
I have lived in Opelika for six years now. Before coming to Opelika my children attended a school system that was not supported by the city government nor was it supported by the people of the city. 'Opelikians' stand firmly behind its schools. Financially, the city makes a large annual apporpriation. The city also supports the schools' by providing assistance from it many departments - ladder trucks from the fire department to help with the annual egg drop competition by the OHS physics classes, the police and fire investigators assist with the Forensic Science classes, the police teach DARE to all elementary students, etc. The school offers a variety of electives including visual and performing arts, career technical courses, and 3 foreign languages up through level 5. Academically, OHS offers Advanced Placement (AP) courses in each of the core areas. Honors level courses are also offered. Dual enrollment is available.
Opelika High School has a great variety of activities to allow students of all talents and abilities to participate. There are opportunities for high achievers to excel, and opportunities for those who need help to receive it. I am very pleased with the education my children are receiving at Opelika High School.
Opelika is the greatest school that i have ever attended. i have gone to beaurgard and a private school and I would definatley choose Opelika over any of them. We have so many things to choose from that any person from any different background can be apart of! Its a wonderful school to be a part of!
I attend opelika high school and i think its a great school.it has a lot of fun activites for the students to do. for example im in band. band is awesome. it gives you a chance to go places instead of sitting at home doing nothing.and this year we are going to washington dc.and opelika high is a great schoolto attend.
Opelika High School is not a great school at all. There are some good extracurricular activities, but the only ones that get any real notification is the football team and bad. Our track team has won the state championship numerous times in the past years and they have not done anything to support it. Basically, all of the school's money goes to the football team. There are some good classes at OHS, but some of the teachers can be quite petulant. There are some great things at OHS, but the best things barely get noticed at all.
I attend Opelika High School and I am in the Band. I find this school a great school for extracurriculars, and the courses are challenging. The school is a great school for anyone and everyone.
I am a current student of Opelika High. I am in the Symphonic, Marching, and Jazz bands, all 3 are excellent programs. I also play for the Impressions and Ovations showchoirs which are wonderful as well. We have access to one of the best theaters in the region and I plan on using my tech experience there to provide me the knowledge for a job after high school. There's something for everyone here. -Lance Dennis
Good school for talented kids, great music program, highly regarded bands. However, the special ed program in this school and district-wide leaves much to be desired -- don't expect inclusion or strict compliance to IDEA, aides or other support that affects the budget. Children with moderate cognitive problems are essentially warehoused in a segregated and isolated room from age 10 to 21. In most ways, this really is a good school and a good district, but the unwillingness to improve their services for children with disabilities is upsetting.
I am a cuurent student at Opelika High School and my school is a very wonderful school. It offers many great oppurtunity's. There is something for everyone at Opelika.I am a dancer in the Spirit of the south band and I can't think of any other school I would want to attend. The band program is excellent.
Such a great school. Teachers are wonderful and very helpful. Many sports and clubs for the kids to get involved in. There is an equal opportunity for all that attend OHS.
I just graduated from Opelika High in 2003. I just stared college, and I am delighted to see that my Opelika High education is paying off. I feel like I really received a great education at Opelika. Opelika offered challenging classes so that I could excell.
My daughter loves the school. They offer great opportunites for talented children. She has a 4.5 GPA and that says alot!
