Ozen high school was once the most popular school to attend for many reasons. Here lately everything has seem to be falling apart. The band is small, drill team girls look lazy in the stands, football team can't win a game to save their lives, and academic wise well... on that note I blame both the teachers and the parents, your child will only give what you push them to give. Neither party helps this high school reach it's goals as being a true Magnet high school. As a minority school ozen is slowly turning the wrong way. But then there's the kids who want to learn and succeed and are actually doing it. As a graduate of the 2009 class I can say that my classmates are pretty successful with degrees of some sort. High school should be a fun learning environment for all students as well as faculty. Blame all parties for the lack of seriousness not the staff.
I feel that the school is more serious about the clothes that the students wear than what the students are actually learning in class. The staff needs A LOT of improvement. The school is also somewhat dangerous because of the students that they cannot control. I only allowed my daughter to go to that school for 2 weeks and i removed her ASAP. The male students are unbelievably rude, and disrespectful to the female students, and that is one of the main things i seen when i visited the class one day. As did i see that the teachers did not pay close attention to their students, allowing them to do many inappropriate things.
I find it sad that parents have to go out there in order to be sure the teachers are even teaching anything. The teachers really are not top of the line I think they are the left overs or rejects from the other schools.
I am a recent graduate of Ozen High school and I believe that the school has great potential but the staff needs a little work. If they spent more time teaching then harrassing students on simple things that doesn't matter the school would be great. But instead the stress more about the color clothes you wear or the shoes on their feet. Most of the classes teachers spent more time on the students clothes than lesson. How are the students to learn if the teachers don't teach.
I am an ozen student and i feel that ozen is a very good school. it may have it's problems but i learned way more here than i did at central.We may have some faculity members that do inapropriate things but what school dosen't the only difference is we're all ways on the news.Anyway our principal is doing his best to reform the school so far his attemps are paying off our 10th grade TAKS scores have come up.We are the only school with a debate team in this district with the exception of pisd(Port Arthur Independent School District)and we are highly ranked num.1 if im not mistaken,I say all that to say this eventhough we have our problems we still maintain a great learning enviroment.
Ozen has a lot to offer if anyone wants to take advantage of the opportunities that are given. The only problem I see is there is a need for more help in TAKS tutorials. Starting with the students entering the 9th grade.
