Octorara was a small enough school that when you walked through the halls, you knew almost every face. They pushed to excel you in your studies and have you prepared for your future starting in 8th grade! The teachers are passionate about what they do and they show how much they care for their students a ton. I would love to see the students change more. I would love to see more school spirit and participation at sporting events. I still love this school, it is where I’ve gone my whole life!

Octorara, overall, is an excellent school. Middle school, and grades below, are structured well for young students to get a good start in preparation for high school. However, this structure also tends to suppress the individuality that children are known for; this is the main reason for four stars and not five. The high school though, provides a plethora of opportunities for college credit and dual enrollment. The teachers in the high school, while some can bring down students and even harm their academic careers, these teachers a few and can be easily avoided. The teachers that love their jobs and help their students far outweigh the bad ones. These teachers have helped me and my classmates do our best to prepare for college far beyond what they were required to do. Octorara is an excellent school that prepares students for their intended futures well beyond most other schools. My time there has given me an amazing start.
i was bullied and the teachers did not do anything to help me! I am so depressed and i am so mad! Why would they let ME suffer! 😠😠😠😠😠
