Avoid sending your students here! This school promotes bullying by both the faculty a d the students. This school does not care if your child graduates, all they care about is you senior to bring in money for the school by forcing them to come back for a 13the year. This school has a quota for return super seniors!
OCHS gives students so many opportunities to excel, whether it is in the arts, humanities, engineering, and/or science. Their music program is truly spectacular. My children love their teachers. I like it that one of my children is able to be in CAIS - a charter school within OCHS, where the emphasis is on engineering and design, and still able to participate in music and sports. Another of my children was very successful in the business classes offered (DECA). My senior has taken many AP (such as Physics, Biology, Statistics, Geography) classes his high school years (is taking calculus this year) and has probably 2 years of college credits already. OCHS offers an abundance of clubs, and activities for students. One of my children plays football, lacrosse, track, and is part of the robotics team. Another is fully engaged in school participating in tech theater, JROTC, and Strength Team. My daughter cannot wait to go to high school to be a part of the equestrian team.
This is a wonderfuls school. It is very large, but the principal is experienced with a large student body and it shows. They have a variety of classes to choose from and plans for all levels of student capabilities. Many extracurricular activities are offered and encouraged. Safe environment and wonderful layout.
