For me, I have been in Oconee my entire life! My grandparents went attended this school system, and so did my dad. Oconee has always been good to my family. The school environment has remained inclusive by increasing opportunities for students to be successful whether that be through pursuit of their passions, or success through their studies. Oconee is a mixture of all different types of students...people who are unique yet come together everyday in unity under because of a common factor, they are all proud Oconee County Warriors. When students graduate, it is very popular to hear “Once a (school mascot), always a (school mascot)”, but for Oconee County High School students nothing rings more true. Personally, I know Oconee County High School will always be a home for me because it contributed to the person I am today and I will forever be grateful!

I really have loved my experience at Oconee County High School! Most of the teachers are passionate about their subject and genuinely want to see their students learn and succeed. There are numerous club, academic, and fine arts opportunities available for all students. My only complaint would be with the amount of funding towards the fine arts. I am personally very involved in the art program, and, while I love and adore the teacher, the class, and clubs associated with it, it is a very small program. We could be doing more projects with more supplies and resources.
I loved my experience at OCHS. The academics are well-rounded, and there are many AP courses available to effectively prepare students for college. The clubs, organizations, and sports on campus are diverse and fun. As a former member of the marching band, I loved the experience of playing music on Friday night games and concert performances alike, and I'm thankful for the many opportunities I have had due to my involvement. I felt safe on campus, and I believe the administration and resources were always readily available.
