I wouldn't say that I enjoy going to school here, but I do love the people I have met throughout my years here. Though there is drama and crowded hallways, I wouldn't choose another school to attend because of the family aspect of our school. We might not care about each other's activities but we do support each other and while I wish some activities got more recognition, I do appreciate the support. Overall, Though hurricane Harvey, and loss withing in the community, we have all learned how to come together as a family and support one another regardless of the situation, interests, or sexual orientation.

The thing I like about Odem High School is because everyone is so sweet and kind. The teachers are amazing they will always try to make you laugh no matter what. Odem is a pretty small town, but one thing that I love about Odem is that there is a lot of spirit and support. Everyone supports everyone no matter if you're in band, football, basketball, track, baseball, or any other activity there is a lot of support. My fellow classmates are fun, we all try to help each other with classes, practice, making friends, were all here for each other. We stand up as one and become closer with each other by getting to know each other more. Like I said Odem is small but Odem can be very big, because we know and learn new things about each other every day. When it comes to support at games or contests we always support each other because we are proud to be an owl.
What I like about Odem is being able to play different sports like baseball, tennis and cross country. I also like the teachers because they help you understand your subjects and will work with you to improve on anything you may struggle in. The school also has lots of different extracurricular activities for all students.
