Oglethorpe County High School Reviews
Oglethorpe county high school has been an enjoyable experience for me. Most of the teachers are enjoyable and our principle and staff attempts to make our school year enjoyable. The major downsides is that we don't have a lot of money so most of our desks, computers, textbooks, and other items are old and damaged. Students also don't have a lot of school spirit or respect for school property. If we had more money and if our school could offer us more class options and students had more respect and if we had newer school items it would have been a better experience.
I had an overall wonderful high school experience. I got a very good education, I had teachers that pushed me to do things i did not believe I could do, like take honors classes and college classes. Taking those classes were great idea because I got two college credits out of the way. The principal takes her job very seriously and passionately. She always does her best to make it a fun experience for all the students while also helping the students get along and try new things. I personally could not have asked for a better high school education and overall experience.
For honors and AP students, the academics are, for the most part, really good. The teachers take their limited resources and instead rely on their imagination and creativity to propel their students into higher learning. I could easily select a few teachers that could compete with the best teachers in better equipped schools. However, our school lacks good sports facilities and programs. We simply do not have the funds for these expenditures. Therefore, most of the excess money we acquire goes to sports, leaving clubs gasping for their own financial needs. My school has potential; it just doesn't have the means of attaining it yet.
