I am senior at Opelika High School. I have had an amazing experience at Opelika. The teachers are extremely enthusiastic to teach and do the most to make sure every student is getting the best education possible. We have superior athletics, which I can tell you first person by being on the Cheerleading team at Opelika. Our school supports all clubs, sports, and extra curricular activities. We also have the best school spirit around. I could not imagine being apart of any other school system, they have made my high school experience unforgettable.
Review Opelika City Schools
The elementary schools are nice, but the middle school is not adequate. There are many delinquents and poor education. However, the high school is very impressive, both academically and visually.
Excellent school system. They care about the whole student and provide multiple opportunities for students to find their college or career path in high school.
