Owen County Public Schools Reviews

I've attended the Owen County Schools my entire academic career and am now about to graduate. As I am looking back I realize how lucky I am to attend a rural high school where the teachers take an effort to know you personally and are always free and willing to go the extra mile to assure you understand the material. The Owen County High School has an extremely productive college readiness program, where if you qualify you can attend dual credit college classes at NKU, KSU or JCTC. The Owen County High School also has a great career readiness program where you can attend a vocational program to receive certifications, and through ILEAD can receive a associates degree by the end of your high school career.

What I like about Owen County Public schools is that Owen County is a small town, which means a small school system. I like the fact that everyone knows everyone, and everyone is very welcoming to you once you get into the school system. I believe that everyone is very nice and helpful. For example, when we lost one of our own students a few years ago to a car accident, everyone rallied around that family and everyone felt the hurt and pain of that loss, even if you didn't know the student personally. For our graduation ceremonies the entire town comes to the high school to watch the seniors graduate. What I would change about Owen County schools would be that we had more diversity. There isn't much diversity in our schools because of our placement in Kentucky, which isn't too good. I would like to see the school change to be more diverse.
The teachers and staff were amazing however compared to other schools the school wasn’t as up to date with certain programs. The school lost vocational programs during my time but also hired more staff to help build better programs for other vocational areas. Staff don’t always seem supported by administrators. The amount of bullying and violence in my opinion was low. Overall, a good school.
