I believe Oran is a great school. I graduated a couple years ago from Oran and I am very happy with my experience there. I transferred in Junior High to Oran and I was immediatly accepted..I felt like I belonged. Oran is great academically..they really focus on you succeeding and getting good grades and learning. Oran also has a lot of after school activities to participate in, from the various sports to the many clubs and organizations. I would defiantly send my child to Oran.

Academically this is a great school. Socially this is one of the most snobbish schools in Southeast Missouri. I am a graduate of OHS and have to admit that it very clickish.

The Academics may be in order but the children attending the school seemed to be out of it. It's a good school for learning but not for a new person to adjust and become part of the school. If your kids grow up in Oran you'll do find but transfering to this small town isn't the best idea.

I am a former graduate and am currently in my first year of professional school. Without the skills obtained from OHS, there is no way I would be where I am today!


Posted April 22, 2004

I am getting ready to graduate from OHS, and I believe that this is one of the best schools in the state of Missouri. If you want your child to succeed in life, please send them to Oran. You will be rewarded, I promise! OHS has some of the best faculty and students that you could ever come across. If you don't believe me, then talk to the other 33 students in the graduating class of 2004.
