I have been a student in the Owensboro Indepentent School systems for essentially my entire time being in school. My main focus of this is Owensboro High School. OHS (Owensboro High School)has provided me with many great opportunities. For example, OHS provided me with the opportunity to start the Early College Acadamy my junior year. The ECA is a program in which the students who qualify are allowed to take their classes full time at a local community college. So, I am getting a lot of college experience as a junior in high school! I am very thankful for all of the opportunities that Owensboro has provided to me, and I look forward for the positive ones to come.

What I liked about Owensboro High School was the family like atmosphere, everyone was friends with everyone and we all stood up for each other. Another thing was definitely the diversity, compared to the other school in the district OHS was the most diverse school, and had more opportunities to learn and prosper. You never really know or understand how close you were with everyone until you graduate, and people from your class call or text to check up on you to see how you're doing. The best thing is to remember all the good times we've all had together, and of course the bad which is not so fun. OHS students have all been through a lot throughout the years and we've always persevered because were a huge family that may not always gets along, but will be the first ones to defend. Always in my heart, Owensboro High School "once a devil, always a devil."
I love this school , the teachers, Staff, Students and everyone that’s surrounded me in Owensboro Public Schools throughout K-12 grade. It’s an all around amazing school and I wouldn’t have wanted to be at any of school.
