There are three high schools in this district. West Oak, is the school to attend if a student just wants to get by and graduate. Seneca , is the high school to attend if a student plans on trying to go to college on a athletic scholarship. However, Walhalla High School , is the school to attend if a student plans on going to college with a solid academic resume. The student are highly competitive academically. Students in Oconee County can attend any one of the high schools as long as they provide their own transportation.
I would like for the schools to raise their standards in academics more so than sports. The schools should be able to offer more honor and advanced placement classes for the students who want to do more. I chose to attend Walhalla High School. I am College ready. Thank You

I feel like the Oconee County School District has great schools for children of all ages to learn in. The faculty and staff are excellent with the children and teens. The teachers are welcoming and they want to educate young minds. It is a safe place for children to develop their minds. They are very clean and organized. The high schools work really hard to get the teens ready for the hard challenges of college. They also have rules set for everyone to obey to help keep the students and teachers safe though out the day. As a senior in high school I can honestly say I have loved my elementary, middle, and high school. I would not want to be in any other school district.
"Above average" my ass. This place is political, nosey, racist, and homophobic. You investigate and judge things that are absolutely none of your damn business while simultaneously ignoring the real problems within the schools(bullying, suicides, and treatment of class differences). There's not enough space in this box for me to give the district my opinion and piece of my mind. Do better. You're embarrassing
