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!

Oconee County schools allow for students to participate in courses that will prepare them for college, but keep them from facing incredible pressure from teachers. The teachers are thoughtful and will do everything they can to help students. I personally took a class where I was failing and the teacher worked with me until I had an A. They support their students and encourage them to do well without putting the weight of the world on their shoulders.
I went to school in Oconee County k-12. It is a great place to get educated. It totally prepared me for my college experience. I loved all of my teachers. In high school, the accelerated, honors, AP and dual enrollment programs are great. I took honors, accelerated and AP courses during all four years and the teachers were all fantastic. I'll forever be grateful for my academic experiences are OCHS.
