John O'Connell is in the Hart of the Mission district. The Staff is amazing and dedicated to the students. This school is a small community within itself and has family enviornment. Students have many supports and if taken advantage of they can go far. Out of class 150 in 2009, there 70 students apply to a 4 year university. JOCHS, is truely making some postive changes.

I am very impressed with the administration, teachers, and staff at John O'Connell High School. They are truly committed to ensuring that all students go to college. This school has a very strong AVID program. The teachers are committed and provide students with incredible support and motivation to take them from where they are at to reach their best potential. This is a small school that offers incredible opportunities and programs for students. There are a variety of interesting after-school programs and qualified staff that work closely with students. Their commitment to excellence, building their community, and supporting students in a challenging environment is commendable. The school Principal is receptive and active, he is a strong leader with a vision. There is a core of parents that are involved and are the security at the school has a good relationship with students, they are always looking out for the safety of students. Love this school!

This school is great. I too went to this school all for years. And it's up to you as a student to take everything they teach and LEARN. I know many of my classmates went on and actually got jobs in the field they were learning. In fact, they helped many of us get jobs even before we graduated. I highly recommend it. Especially for those students who really want to get a head start in gaining skills they'll need for a job. Real skills.

I went to this school for all four years of high school, and it is by far the worst school in the city. I did not learn one thing here, I was not prepared for college.
