Oconee County Schools Reviews

I moved to Oconee County when I was 8 years old. I went thru elementary, middle school, and 9th grade high school. I moved away for 2 years and lived in two different areas due to my father's job. I attended three different high schools. My family and I returned back to Oconee County for my senior year. I feel I have experience comparing Oconee County Schools to the other counties I lived.
I'm happy to be back in Oconee County and graduate with friends I grew up with. Oconee County schools has a feel at home feeling. Small town feeling but enough opportunities to adventure out when graduating. There isn't much I would want to change because I am excited to know I will be graduating from OCHS!

Great teachers, good kids and many people willing to help. Also a nice course selection which further expands the horizons of their students interests and opportunities. The school is not very racially diverse, it consists mainly of whites. This school offers unique opportunites to everyone, whilst preparing us for secondary education. AP courses, Honors courses, and on level courses are offered at the Oconee county high schools. Athletics and and clubs have a major influence on the students at this school.
Although I may, like any self-respecting teenager, moan and groan about school to my peers, I can say without a doubt that Oconee County High School has molded me into the person I am today. OCHS has managed to cultivate both a friendly yet challenging atmosphere that nurtures the growing mind of the young mind. In my personal experience, the teachers have been knowledgeable and helpful, and always willing to sit down with you and guide you without spoon-feeding the answers. The campus itself is beautiful and the student body is always friendly. In the almost four years I have attended OCHS, I cannot remember a single student conflict that wasn't quickly solved by both my fellow students and the administers. In conclusion, I can say without a doubt, that OCHS has a phenomenal impact on any student that attends this school and I will remember my time spent there as I take the opportunity that OCHS has given me and attend a college of my choice.
