Currently, I am a sophmore attending Osborn. Having spent two years at Osborn, I would have to say that the level of security and is not up to part. That is an issue that really needs some attention. Yes, when you walk down the hall you might see a fight and yes, there are more teachers needed. However, if a student makes his/hers education a high priority, the opportunity is there. There are teachers at Osborn that are willing and understanding. With help from those teachers along with my parents, I have made it possible to maintain a 3.8 over-all gpa. Osborn is an experience that the student makes it out to be. If you want it to be a place to see fights, you'll see it. But most importantly, if you want it to be a place to learn and grow, Osborn is that.

Teachers are not working hard enoughto help out the students every need. Not all of the teachers but most of them, when I visit the school, I see some slackers. The schools extracurricular activites are very good because it gives the students a choice and sometimes helps keep the kids out of trouble. Parents are not always involved in the schools activities, which I believe may have an effect on some students behavior. I believe parents should get involved more with the schools activites along with the students. I know that I'm not always involved because of my job and I know that may be most of the parents situation but if you can manage, I encourage all parents and students to try hard and become more involved with the school and its activities and events. I think Mr. Dixon is doing a great job with the students and the school.

this has been my first year attending osborn. my experience have not been good. people get into fight every time you turn around. parents are not trying to help the situation whatsoever. osborn high school is one of the worst in detroit. the only class that the teacher is really good is the spanish classes and gym. if you want your child to have the best education possible this is not the right school.

At the moment, I am attending Osborn. I've learned not as much as I would like to be taught and I believe that Osborn students are not challenged enough there. Students continue to walk the halls without passess given out and you see not yet one improvement on the hall sweeps. I personally believe that the reason why there is not much parent involvement is because of the uncleanliness, and attitudes of many teachers. Securities there are barely doing there jobs.

I've had two children that graduated from Osborn High School, 2003 and 2004. From my own experience with assisting my daughters with their homework, I believe that the education levels are substandard. I believe that parents should be involved with their children s education, but there was no way that my daughters would have been prepared for college with the kind of teachings that they were receiving. I also attended a school rally one day and heard one of the teachers speaking on the accomplishment of the children. In his speech, he stated that if they were just able to pass there test, this would be ok. I was appalled, what about teaching a child to set his or her goals higher then just ok . Can a child really compete by just being ok? I was constantly fighting the sub-standard mind set that was being placed in my children s heads'.

Academic wise the school is ok but I attended Osborn last year and my experience was not good. I say that because there was always conflict every time I turned around. I am not a trouble maker. My mom went up there and she did'nt like it because she observated that there is no control over the students, and they are wild and disrespectful to any parent that wallks in. There is at least 2 to 5 fights a week. I think that there should be tight security, school uniforms, and strict rules on class attendance. In conclusion, I believe that the students are not focused enough on their work. Also, there are issues with the teachers that need to be worked on. If the students complain about a teacher, action should promply be taken upon the situation. I have seen with my own eyes that it is not handled properly.

I think the school is decent, but it could be improved by more tutoring for our children. In the last couple of years the state have added two more math classes as a requirement for graduation, but many of the schools,Osborn included, did not add enough tutors to aid our children to succeed in these added classes. There is room for a great deal of improvement for the success of our kids at Osborn. We have good teachers, but there are those that need to improve. Also, informing the children more of the requirements, and aiding them more in reaching these requirement goals would help. As I said it's a decent school, but it needs to be more receptive to the needs of our children.
