Great school! Teachers are nice and students are serious about school. I think that attending O'Gorman has helped me a lot academically. However, making friends can be a little challenging because students have grown up around each other. I found it challenging to make friends at O'Gorman although I should have tried harder to make friends with them.

I transferred to O'Gorman my sophomore year, from Brandon Valley High School, and I have never been so happy with a decision I made in High School. They connect with students, teachers, and coaches. I was on the cross country team and made unforgettable memories and relationships within the three years I was involved. The academics challenges me greatly and I finish units and classes satisfied with the effort put in and information I learned. Another big part of my love for O´Gorman is the Catholic Chapel available everyday and mass offered every week since my religion is a big part of my daily life.
I liked that O’Gorman is very challenging. I liked how their was a lot of clubs and activities even though it is a smaller school. I liked how O’Gorman prepares you for college. The teachers are very nice and know how to prepare students. I liked how going to sports events felt like a real community event. I think students if earned, deserve more freedom. Sometimes it feels way too constricted. I would like to see the dress code get less strict.
