I am an alum from Ogden International. I attended this school from kindergarten through senior year. The principal and teachers are amazing. They really care about all students education and are sure to provide the best education to each student. There are varies sports teams that students can try out to join and wonderful clubs to choose from. This is a diverse school where families get to learn about many different cultures, backgrounds and languages. Ogden is an anti-bullying school and does not condone any kind of hateful or harmful behavior. I would recommend this great school to all potential new comers.

My name is Oz Yangas and I am now a senior. The first notable thing about my school is the name. We are an international school, meaning we have closely linked sister schools all over the world. Along with this sentiment, we also host a great amount of diversity at our school with kids coming from many different backgrounds. This is a major highlight of our school to which we take great pride in. That this school is open to everyone and anyone from where ever they come from and believe. Next, the classes have always had a certain amount of intrigue to them with how not only we learn from our teachers but how we also learn from each other as students. This creates and open playing field and a very inviting atmosphere that allows students to be invested into their curriculum. However, we suffer from disorganization when it comes to getting information across from teachers to students. Which is the only problem the school really has.
Ogden is the representation of a city school. It tries its very hardest to provide that "high school experience" with the lack of resources it has. If you're looking for a city school, this ones for you. However, one must have that leadership mentality or take the initiative and motivation to get things done. Because, with the lack of resources, things are left undone. Ogden provides a program called the "IB Program", which is (in all honesty) a vigorous and excruciating program that does in fact prepare the student for college and gain credit on certain classes. It provides an opportunity for the student to get a glimpse of the college life while also maintaining a high school life. Ogden is a good school with a handful of teachers and staff that care, however, the student must also have a mind of their own and follow their own structure rather than the recommended educational structure, which is what makes Ogden amazing.
