I believe this school is the best school in the entire Owensboro area. The principal, Mrs. Burnette, is a great lady and cares about every student. The teachers care and challenge each student to be the best person they can be. The academics are challenging, due to the wide array of AP and Honors courses a student can take. Most of the students are nice to each other and care for each other. The athletic and art programs are superior to area schools. I recomend this school to anyone.
OHA is unique and has a caring culture. They take time to get to know each of the students. The cultural diversity is an asset to all students. Students from a variety of backgrounds work side-by-side and learn to appreciate ways in which they are the same and ways in which they are different. The school has the most comprehensive fine arts instruction in the state, which provides opportunities in dance, drama, music, and the visual arts. From preschool through 12th grade, students participate in a wide variety of programs that complement and enrich students educational experience.
The teachers as well as the princpal didn't seem to care. I was going through hard times and none of the teachers or counslors came to me to see if everything was ok until I missed school for 4 months.
I have two children who have graduated from OHS in the last 3 years. The experience for both was outstanding. They were challenged in the classroom with a varied offering of AP courses and given the chance to spread their wings in sports, theater and other organization. The administration cares about all students and shows this in their actions daily.
Owensboro High School was an exceptional school. It was challenging and rewarding, and allowed me to soar in college and succeed in my career and life. The teachers were exceptional and caring, the coursework challenging and the atmosphere small-town terrific.
