OTHS has a lot to offer the young people of our communities, with many fine teachers, a caring administration and hard working staff. Our students who have taken advantage of the quality learning opportunities have gone on to excel at both public and private post-secondary institutions.. The addition of the new wing will further improve what OTHS has to offer our learning community. I'm proud of what we offer here at OTHS and encourage parents and students to take advantage of what we have to offer to their son or daughter.

OTHS is a good school that has some good programs (Band, JROTC, Sports, etc). I feel lucky to be attending OTHS for the next 3 years of my life, This school has surprisingly average teachers, The schools administration is one to not be messed with. This school has a incredible special education program to. I would greatly recommend anyone to this school.

This school is alright. The administration is pretty good, and the teachers really care for the most part. I am a consistent honor student, and I am taking all honor courses except for english. The english department here is ridiculously hard, but all of the other classes are either about where they should be or a little easy. If the hardness of the classes was leveled out a little bit, than this school would be a bit better. Also, a lack of funding for everything hurts us a bit too so if they could increase that the school would be much better.

Wow the parents and students rating OTHS have no clue how bad this high school is. Each principal is worse than the last one. Over the years I have seen this school really deteriorate. This was once a very good high school. Most of the teachers they have hired recently are not very good. I'm not sure what the issue is, it certainly isn't money. I just think the people who are going into teaching are not very good. Plus the students are not very well behaved, so the teachers just end up being babysitters.

It is a school with a lot of potential, and hopefully the new principal can provide the leadership to elevate the quality. In the meantime, one of our children attends the high school and has had a good experience overall, though the consistency of the teaching quality isn't where it should be. Still, we feel that our kids will do fine at OTHS and perhaps be part of making it even better.

Its not as bad as some people would think. I myself am a student and I feel that the teachers are easy to relate to and that the school sets a learning envirorment for its teachers and students. I find that the school has decent and reasonable expectations of its students and a great enviroment for kids. The school has close knit and welcoming students and a variity of opperatunities not found in other high schools.

It appears that the budget cuts have had a negative impact on the test scores for this school since they have been implemented. This is disturbing since without a decent education most students couldn't even pass an asfab exam to be eligible to join any of our military services! how could they score high enough on an sat test to qualify for college, if they can't even pass that test? I hope the town will change their mind in the future about 'hurting' the future of their children when they are putting together their next town budget!!!

My daughter is a freshman at this school. Thumbs up to the teachers, the principal, the guidance councilor, the coaches, the athletic director, etc., who genuinly care about her as an individual. This is a new experience for us. I am so excited to see her self esteem and confidence improve each day. I am seeing her accomplish things I always knew she was capable of, but she just needed someone (besides Mom) to believe in her. She is getting this much needed encouragment here at Old Town High School. She was threatened one day by a classmate, but the school immediately took care of the situation, and they did a good job because there has been absolutely no negative residual effects. I like the rules regarding athletics which are strict, but fair. I know there will be budget cuts, but the key factors will still be there. Thank you.
