Oneonta Senior High School Reviews

I, personally, had a fantastic experience at high school and I owe it, almost entirely, to the teachers. In every academic field, I had a fantastic teacher, and I still regularly use knowledge I gained from Oneonta Senior High School in everyday life. Unfortunately, the high school was inadequately funded, and it could be seen in the depletion of the arts and music, over time. I'm thankful to have been exposed to adequate education in spite of Oneonta being so small and underfunded. I respect the teachers' passions for teaching and if it wasn't for those brilliant teachers, I would not have developed such a passion for learning. I would love to see improvements in the quality of the facilities and, perhaps, the food.

I for the most part despised my time spent at this school. The teachers are a toss-up, few are great while some are just horrendous( in intelligence, attitude, planing. and general skill of teaching). The building is not aesthetically pleasing, just painted bricks, it attempts to redeem itself by the courtyard encircled by the building, but it's just as dreary as the rest. Often throughout my experiences opportunities were taken away from me and regardless of any mention this received no acknowledgement putting me at a general disadvantage, especially now as i attempt to enter college.
I've had a really great experience at the school, and I would definitely do it again. There are some overbearing parents, but mostly the parents are supportive of students (their own and others). One of my favorite things about the school is how much parents are involved in extracurricular activities. Every year my SADD (Students Against Destructive Decisions) chapter holds a 5K run in which parents and other community members participate in a health fair and then later run the race. We often have over 1,000 participants, and most of them are parents of students at the school. It is a really positive and well controlled environment for both students and parents alike.
