Ogemaw Heights High School Reviews
Ogemaw Heights High School is an average school in a very rural low income area. People are very friendly and the school offers a wide variety of Career and Technical Education opportunities. Career and Technial Education opportunities include metal shop, CAD, woodshop, building trades, Nursing and medical education, and Ag leadership and entrepreneurship. The school offers a wide variety of online classes, dual enrollment, and early/middle college for students. Ogemaw Heights has an average sports program with the option to join different sports for male and females. There are many different clubs like NHS, HOSA, Chess Club, FFA, YAK, etc. I would recommend anyone to attend Ogemaw Heights High School for their high school career.
I very much enjoyed my time at Ogemaw Heights, getting to have the amazing musical and athletic opportunities that I had hoped for. However, I would love to see the environment that is created by both staff and student, change. Over the years and due to terrible loss and tragedy, we have become closer, but we still are stuck in the highschool stereotypes of being "cool" and "uncool". We need to learn to treat everyone with kindness, even on the toughest days, and try to be mutually acquaintanced with as many people as possible. You don't have to be their best friend, you don't even have to talk to them everyday. Just a simple hi and a question of how they are goes a lot farther than many people in my generation realize.
Ogemaw Heights was a good school in terms of teaching basic curriculum, however was not very good for college readiness in terms of teaching students the proper way to write a research paper, thesis, or outline. The school prides itself on sports having many great athletes go to college on athletic scholarships or grants. Along with that Parents are very involved in sports and academics trying to make encourage and help coaches and athletes. The schools diversity is very low based on its rural location.
