Ogallala High school is good, but there are too many students that are transferring in. This makes it harder for teachers to keep up. When I was a freshman my largest class was 18 people and now my largest class is 27 people. There is also a problem with students not listening because the teachers don't enforce the rules enough. We recently had to ban water bottles unless they were clear because there was a problem with students bringing 'bad things' to school.

I had a great time at Ogallala High School. The students and staff were very kind to me. The sports were my favorite part. There are pretty great sports teams here and the coaches are excellent. There is a great variety of classes that are offered. Many sciences, technology, arts, and writing classes.
Even though I had a pretty great experience at Ogallala High School, there are definitely a few things I would work on. I think that disciplinary action isn't always taken seriously here and that both teachers and students get away with more than they should.
