OFHS represents a school district of about 8000 people with apx. 75 students per graduating class. It meets every expectation that could be expected. There are of course some negatives of a school with such a small population (and tax base). Limited extracurricular activities, special programs, a sense of everyone knows each other, and some lax teachers. But perhaps some people will overlook the positives that you would never experience in a big school. Your kid will never get cut from the teams and activites they do have. Parents are very involved, for the most part your children will be exposed to 'good kids with good families'. It is a safe environment where teachers do notice if someone is 'being left behind'. The only item that truly is ashame, is that there are a few teachers that do absolutely nothing and this needs to be addressed.

My 4 children have all attended OFHS. My youngest has just graduated, so now I feel the freedom to say what I think. With the exception of a few very fine and caring teachers, the rest of the school is very much filled with nepotism at every level. Discrimination is rampant, and favoritism is the order of the day. I would not recommend school if you are concerned about how other chidlren will treat your own children. Of course, if you are of the right combinaiton of ethnic heritage and religion, no problem. Otherwise, be prepared to take a back seat at all events. Arts and music? basically nonexistent, but they spare no cost in sports with new uniforms every year and whatever else they need. Right now they have an excellent HS principal who takes his job very serisously, but if he goes look for return to nepotistic ways.

I lost my education to this school. The teachers constantly nit picked squabbles with the trouble makers and instead of teaching. Your better off homeschooling your children

This 'school' is a joke. they care more about politics then they do my son's education and the education of his classmates. avoid this 'school' at all costs.

My daughter was also not prepared for college--especially in English and Math. I feel the curriculum is too lax and not enough is expected of the students.

This is not a good school to send your children to. As a former student I was not prepared for college in any way. Between teacher strikes and laziness my education falls far behind my classmates. The biggest thing I learned at Old Forge was social skills and thats not helping me get a degree.
