First I really love the O'Bryant! Its an exam school and considered one of the top schools in the country (gold star rated by US News). The teachers really want to see the students succeed. Teachers like Ms. Lakshmi and Mr. Hines challenge students academically and teach classes on a college level. However, there are things that I wish the OB had like better technology (Tv's/laptops/science & lab equipment/ student computer labs), interactive blackboards, better text books, building facilities need major upgrades, fresher lunches with more choices, SAT/ACT prep classes like Testive, more diverse course like African American studies.

I enjoyed attending the O’Bryant. It opened me up to a wide variety of different cultures and races and made It a comfortable learning environment for everyone. If there is anything I liked about this school is that It is safe, no bullying or mean activity of the sort. They also provide many clubs, culture group meets, sports opportunities that are enjoyable as well. Only things I would change is the stability of the guidance counselors, we did not really have specific guidance counselors It varied and changed throughout the years numerous times for some so it’s kind of hard to build strong relationships with them. Also money was a constantly an issue even though they can not do much to control that. But, other than that I feel as though my experience was pretty good.
This school has a great reputation because of it's competitive nature which opens up opportunities for extracurricular programs and individuals to thrive through third-party support.
The material that students learn are taught on a much higher level than their other public school counterparts, which provides challenge for students that seek it and readies them for college. There are some teachers here who are very involved in building relationships with students and the community and are willing to step out of teaching to be loyal friends, good educators and inspiring role models.
The buildings are kept in very poor condition and makes you wonder if it's going to fall apart. There is a lot of various filth lying across everywhere (rooms are dusty, various leaks in multiple areas that have sustained for years, various mystery stains on walls and ceilings and unsanitary bathrooms). Most of the 'mechanisms' of the school are also outdated and many things break/malfunction constantly.
