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.

O'Gorman High School has a warm, close-knit atmosphere. All of the students are inviting and welcome others with open arms. The staff is hands-on and they work to give the students the best education they can provide, putting in countless hours of work both inside and outside the class. The school also encourages faith practices on a daily basis which allows the student to grow both physically and spiritually within the school.
The teachers and academics were all super great! Most of the students here go on to higher education and it's common here to receive prestigious awards. I like that it's a Christian environment without being too strict or crazy.
