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.

I have been enrolled in Owensboro Independent Schools my whole academic career. As being a senior now I look back and realized how much Owensboro Independent Schools have shaped me as a person. I cheered for my sophomore and junior year and our cheer team was a big family. We would cry when our football or basketball team lost and felt their hurt. Just by watching all our sports teams throughout middle school and high school you can see their growth as people and how serious the students and coaches take the game. The parent's support is also really great. You can see them at every game and hear them cheering our Red Devils. My favorite about Owensboro Independent Schools is the opportunities you're offered once you reach high school. I have taken full-time college classes at Brescia University my junior year and will be taking college classes at the community college here in town my senior year and graduating with my associate degree.
Owensboro High School a great school because it allows you to be yourself. It welcomes diversity and allows students to find their own path. Owensboro High School is a school of tradition, excellence and innovation. Students can create their own learning path and they find a way to bring out the talent in all students.
