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.
It is a small school with a decent community. You will find the typical groups of students, the academics are alright, although they don't offer many AP classes.
