Xenia High School did not prepare me for college. The teachers either did not know how to teach in a way conducive to the students, or did not care to enhance our learning. Besides the shining stars, like Mr. Richey, Mr. Marrinan, Mr. Gray, Mrs. Smith (may she rest in peace), and Mrs. Miller, the staff at XHS was woefully uninformed. XHS only offered 5 AP classes, which was not helpful when it came time for me to fit 2 majors and a minor into 4 years in college. Mr. Manley was the best, most caring teacher at XHS, and after he left, the theater program went down the drain thanks to an incompetent new instructor.
I have attended four high schools before I graduated from the Greene County Career Center this year, Xenia High School is by far the worst I have ever attended. The staff in the office treated my family poorly as I registered for my classes at their school, acting exasperated just to have to do their job. They treat students who aren't their favorites like second-class citizens.
Xenia High is a great school to send your child to. The teachers take the time to teach the students what they need to know for the future they don't just send work home and expect the student to understand it come test time. For a math teacher at Xenia High you want your child to go through either Mrs. Barta or Mrs. Kussaye they are the best there is and for English teachers either Miss Duff or Mrs. Kuhlke. Mr.Ogan is a great German teacher if you want your child to learn German. Mr. Snyder is the best social studies teacher you find. He makes it fun.
Xenia High School offers a lot of additional activities. The teachers are interested in the students goals and are more than willing to help. However, as a former student (with in the past 5 years) I will say that as a Senior not only myself but additional students would have liked a little more guidance with college from the guidance counselor. I would recommend learning as much as you can on your own about different colleges. Make an educated decision and do not rely on someone else.
