Ouachita School District Reviews
The teachers are more like your mother. They are very approachable and make sure you get everything done.
Ouachita has a couple of amazing teachers and several incredibly smart students buried underneath the neglect of opportunity. "Uninterested in academic growth" should be their motto. Students graduate having never heard of basic things such as the PSAT, the Common App, etc. Counselors do not push students to be better and most teachers expect only the bare minimum from students. Preferential treatment is given to faculty and staff who are originally from the area, which is honestly so weird and not at all beneficial to the community. In short, this place needs work and I wish students had more opportunities to grow.
Ouachita hills academy prepared me for college. There is a beautiful environmemnt in my school! It is out in the country. The school does alot of community service in which all students participate. We visit nursing homes, clean yards, paint houses...etc. We are also involved in a Bell Choir. Trips are taken at least once a week to churches, nursing homes, malls, public places and we play for the people as a way to minister to them. We also have a work program where each student works at least 4 hours a day to help pay for tuition costs. We do all of this and still keep up with our academics. As you can see it very well prepared students for college life.
I like Ouachita because everyone grows together as a family. Everyone at Ouachita is treated with respect and the manners are always required. The only thing I would change about Ouachita would be that we need to take more pride in our campus by adding more things to it and fixing things up. But we are constantly working on doing so. In the last year the school has undergone many changes including remodeling and new administration. New administration is currently trying to get test scores up by working one on one with students. Ouachita is always trying to improve. Other than that I consider Ouachita a great place to attend school.
I like how everyone is willing to help you and that teachers are mostly there if you need them but I wish some classes other than the AP one would push students to try harder as it won’t be as easy to pass classes when we get to college.
This school has very good diversity. Teachers help students and Ouchita over all has great academics. One of my parents went to this school and now me!
I loved all the teachers and administration at Ouachita High School, although i believe they need a huge upgrade. The focus has been on building new buildings for classes and they tend to forget the athletic part of the school. A new basketball gym has been much needed for years now. Not just for the kids wise but we also need to provide more seating or even AC to our fans. This school is among one of the only that still has an old, no ac gymnasium.
I loved how small the school is, it makes it easier to bond with people. But the education levels are not the best. I would love to see that change in the future.
At Ouachita School District everyone is very close and everybody knows everybody. I loved this about Ouachita because I am very shy sometimes and this brought me out of my shell. However the academics at Ouachita are honestly not the best, in most of my classes I really do not learn anything at all. I feel that some of my teachers are not qualified to teach the subject that they teach. I wish my counselor gave me and my senior class more help with getting scholarships and applying to colleges.
