Othello School District Reviews

Othello High School is in a small town with an extremely close community. Because of this, everyone knows each other and making close friends is almost certain. However, since our school is small, there is a limited amount of activities for students as well as classes. Im not allowed to explore my interest in pre medicine And psychology because of the limited classes. Also, we are limited with sports coaches and teachers however, since our community is small it is easy to build a relationship with them. The diversity is very limited with mostly a hispanic and white community which I wish would expand. All in all, our school is like a home and the students are a family, Though we are somewhat limited, we make the most of our experience.

The Othello School District has been a provided a good education for my peers and I. Their dedication to serving the community is evident in their development of programs that cater to all kinds of students (i.e. fast track math, AVID, ELL programs). However, the district lacks enough teachers and buildings that can adequately serve the student body. All in all, Othello has provided me a great opportunity for education
As a high school student at Othello High School, I enjoyed it for the most part. Our school is a medium sized high school, in a fairly small town. Because of this, everybody knows everybody and that severely impacted our environment. My teachers were my friends parents, and my mom probably cut all of their parents's hair. The only thing I would improve at OHS is the organization within the students. This is hard because it is hard to let irresponsible teenagers take charge in the school, but students like to express their creativity.
