My experience at Ow has been okay, the one thing I will complain about is the counselors! Yes they have a lot of students to attend to but they definitely do not live up to the role of counselor! They will have your classes so messed up during your senior year and have you taking classes you should've been in at grade 10 or 11. The schools needs a better system with getting kids their required classes on schedule and not wasting their time. Aside from counselors, the administrative staff, very biased! They pick and choose when to be authoritative depending on the student, not all, but majority. Some positive things about OW is programs and dual college courses.

My overall experience with Orangeburg Wilkinson High School is a 9/10. I really love being a student at Orangeburg Wilkinson High because the environment is just always welcoming and I really feel at home. They community’s involvement is impeccable. The teachers and administrators always lead with an assertive, yet guiding light. I have a handful of teachers and administrators that support me to the fullest. I really believe they bring out the best in me and they push me to do good always and just be the best person I can be. I love Thursdays because that’s chicken day and Orangeburg Wilkinson High School has the best chicken. Honestly I really enjoyed going to this school like all the other schools we have some altercations from time to time but they are always handled the right way. I feel safe going to this school and i’m glad I get to go to Orangeburg Wilkinson High School.
Overall, the school experience was good. I received a good education and successful social life there. The diversity is also great. The school cares about what's most important while allow students to enjoy their high school experience.
