Odessa R-VII School District Reviews

Overall I had a pretty good High School experience here, but I never went to another school so I have nothing to compare it to. The teachers are good about being in touch with all their students and are very willing to be involved in their students lives. Being in such a small town equals a ln equally small school which makes it easier to talk and build relationships with teachers and staff. Many students and myself have had teachers and other staff go above and beyond to comfort us when in a slump and make sure that we had all the support we could possibly have. They won't hold your hand through the whole course obviously, but if you are legitimately struggling with the work or a section of the course, they will do all they can to help you or find someone who can.

Odessa High School is the school for a small town. This school is well diverse and great facilities. The schools are nice and kept up. The teachers are not as involved as I believe they should be. A sports player would very much fit in here, and academics are challenged. There are many extra curricular activities available to the students. I would change the resources open to the students, as well as improved counselor assistance.
I liked the close family feel at Odessa High School. The teachers were friendly and helpful, the office staff was kind and always smiling, and the principal was always interacting with students. If there was ever a problem our counselors were always ready to lend a helping hand and listen. The counselors were also helpful with finding scholarships for college, and helped to apply to colleges. I had a good experience at Odessa, and glad to say that I am a bulldog.
