Obion County Central High School is an excellent school. I have really enjoyed my 4 years here. I've made memories and friends that will last a lifetime! I am an A-B student, 4 year varsity football player and 2 year co-ed cheerleader. Sports has played an important role in my high school years. They helped me make friends, understand the true meaning of teamwork, and the importance of a leadership role. The teachers and coaches at OCCHS are exceptional! They push you to strive to be your best with encouraging words and they are always there to help or just listen. I will carry what I've learned these 4 years with me forever and I know I have a bright and promising future because of everyone at Obion County Central!

Obion County Central High School does not push your student very far! Some teachers tell the children the bare minimum to pass. It is an average school with average children and teachers. There is nothing special or unique about this school and its atmosphere.
I would like to change the lack of school spirit and lower the bullying rate. Also, some of the staff do a poor job at teaching/ administrating, etc. I do like the fact that freshmen have their own hallways and that there are so many club affiliations inside of OCCHS.
