Charles D. Owen High School Reviews

This is a tight knit school and community. Principal very informative with weekly updates and at all events, she is very actively involved with students. I would change coaching to be someone with knowledge AND coaching ability to be coaches, not just a teacher or staff member. I would also like to see athletes advertised to colleges by the coaches.
Review Charles D. Owen High School
My experience was pleasant. I had teachers that I really connected with during my freshman year and throughout high school, they've been a big influence on me. The staff there is really helpful, but during my senior year, I would ask counselors to send my transcripts to university and they would be late and it cause me problems.
Things I like at my school would have to be how helpful the teachers are, and how loving and caring they are. Something I would like to see change would have to be the bullying. There are a lot of people making fun of he mentally challenged, and that's not right.
