Fort Osage High School 4

We moved here over 9 years ago after research of the schools on the MO side. I compared to the Shawnee Mission School District in KS. Although, MO didn't meet the 'scores' of KS; F.O. district beat out the Independence and Blue Springs districts at the time. and I believe that F.O. continues to grow and excel in their efforts to teach our children!

I was very disappointed with F.O.'s high school. My kids have been students in this district since kindergarten, but once my oldest made it into high school, we finally decided we needed to move on! The teachers seem to get as wound up in the drama as the students. I won't miss this school at all - I'm glad I am finished with it!

Fort Osage is an especially good school considering the location. As a former student, I can tell you that you won't find better teachers or counselors anywhere. The teachers/counselors have a great volunteer program in which the students can come to them in times of need. The student body is a good size, although getting bigger every year. It's one of those schools where all the students are acquainted. Average teacher-student ratio...smaller classes would probably be helpful, but that would require more funding than the district has available. Great extracurriculars, including football, cheerleading, drama, choir (check out 'Touch of Class'), an award-winning band, and several other clubs and sports. Lots of great opportunities, especially with the Vocational-Technical school next door. There are some issues with favoritism, but all-in-all Fort is a very supportive environment for your kids. The recent construction/remodeling looks sharp, too!

Fort Osage High is a great place to learn from and has more than enough knowledge to offer to us. The teachers are always there to help us and good conselor's there to help us plan for the future. Overall it is a great school
