The environment of a smaller school is very refreshing. The staff there have more one-on-one communication with the students. The staff care deeply about the students and their success and it shows in how they teach and interact with the each individual. Personally, my experience in this school has been exceptional. The teachers go out of their way to help students and make sure that we succeed in what ever we are trying to pursue. Over all, Odessa High School has been a great place where students are molded into respectable adults that care about their community.

I greatly enjoyed my time at Odessa! The professors were always friendly and helpful, I was challenged academically to gain knowledge, and had wonderful coaches to help me become a strong responsible woman.
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.
