My experience at Osage High School was okay. The food at lunch isn't the greatest, but I had some great teachers. The principal on the other hand isn't great. He is sexist, favoring the males. I felt somewhat ready for college thanks to OHS, but I'm not ready for the diversity that I'll see in college since Osage is one the whitest cities ever. Some of the classes were great while others felt like a study hall since we never did anything. I felt very safe while at Osage, but the administration does not handle certain situations very well. Sports are a big deal at Osage so parents are involved heavily. Overall, it was fun at OHS, but I'm happy to be graduating.

I loved attending Osage High School! Looking back I would have done things a little differently, like being more involved in the activities that were offered. I also wish I would have known about more higher education opportunities to complete during high school to put me further ahead for college. I also would have hung out with more people, so that I could have had a much wider base of friends. However, I would still pick to attend Osage High School if I had the choice, because you get a really personal experience that you can make into whatever you want.
The administration does not care about what is best for the students and generally does nothing. The guidance counselor is incompetent, and the principal doesn't really know the very few students that go to the school. The office staff is amazingly helpful and friendly, and they deserve more recognition! Bullying policies are supposedly very strict, but people still get bullied occasionally. The dress code is pretty standard.
