OC is a rural high school in the south (this can be negative) but provides some great things for students. This is a very safe and orderly school and the staff is nurturing to and concerned about young people. Stuents can excel if they take advantage of AP classes and other opportunities. Teacher quality is improving and administrative staff are caring and involved.

As a student for four years at ochs, i respect every one in the adminisrtation, mostly Mr.Hillard one of the ag teachers, Mr.Hillard taught me more than you will ever know, although some do not have a apriciation for agriculture, i do, because someone has to be a farmer. And Mr. hillard deserves so much including respect.

School does not promote teachers' respect towards students. Teachers are very unwilling to cooperate with students. Also, teachers are very unwilling to put grades in the system in a timely manner, therefore allowing students who are average or above average to have deficient progress reports.

I don't know about this school compared to other High Schools, but compared to the middle school in Ohio County it is excellent!

I presently have 2 children attending this school. One a senior(average student), the other a sophomore(has an IEP, receiving Special Ed. services). Dealing with teachers for the oldest has been a breeze. It is another story with the youngest, not all experiences have been bad but enough for me to caution other parents to keep an eye on your child if they receive Special Ed. services. Some Special Ed. teachers are great while others, well they are just getting a paycheck. The Director of Special Ed. has been great to work with, but she has been ill of late and on a LOA. I have to constantly check progress on the IEP, they seem to not want to go by the letter of the IEP, so watch that. They have a poor Parent Involvement Policy, needs changes. I can't eat lunch with my kids. Quality of academics is very good.

First of all, comparing this high school to my old one, this one is far way better. The technical and elective classes are amazing. The teachers are slightly not as good at my school, but the clases make up for that. The Assistant Principal is better than my old school assistant principal. But no one likes the assistant Principal due to the fact he controls the discipline in the school. I dont know much about parent involvement, since my mom doesnt really car what I do, as long as I pass. The student body itself is one of the friendliest I've ever came in contact with. The rules are way better than my old school. I believe if a school doesnt have much rules or uniforms, there wouldnt be any school shootings. But overall, I love this school, I wish I went to OCHS for my freshman year.

About the tests


Beginning in the 2011-12 school year, and continuing in 2012-2013, Kentucky used the Kentucky Performance Rating for Educational Progress (K-PREP) tests to assess students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and mathematics, 4 and 7 in science, 5 and 8 in social studies, 5, 6, 8, 10, and 11 in writing, and 4, 6, and 10 in language mechanics. The K-PREP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Kentucky.

About the tests


Until 2010-2011, Kentucky used the Kentucky Core Content Tests (KCCT) to assess students in grades 3 through 8 and 10 through 12 in reading, social studies, science, writing, and math. The Elementary School results displayed on GreatSchools profiles are for grades 3 through 5 combined for each subject. Middle School results are for grades 6 though 8 combined, and High School results are for grades 10 though 12 combined. The KCCT is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Kentucky. Beginning in 2011-2012, Kentucky switched to the K-PREP and EOC exams.

About the tests


Beginning in the 2011-12 school year, and continuing in 2012-2013, Kentucky administered the End-of-Course (EOC) assessments. EOCs are tests given to public high school students when they complete a course to assess their knowledge of important course concepts. They are similar to a final exam, except that they are created and scored by an outside testing company, ensuring that the tests are both rigorous and aligned with state and national college readiness standards.
