Upset with the new principal. Things at O'Connell do not seem to be improving at all with these changes.

What a great school! The new administration is working hard to turn the school around and offer the best education on the island. I see the changes and wish them the best in their endeavors!

About this school

O'Connell is the oldest Catholic high school in Texas. Chartered in 1847 by the Ursuline Nuns, we proudly serve families in Galveston, Brazoria, and southern Harris Counties. As a Catholic school we seek to share with you the richness and strengths of a Catholic education. Our students are bonded by a common faith life, stronger than ethnicity, nationality, or culture.
