Othello High School Reviews
I like this school, and I like the people in it. I have a lot of good friends and I've had some really great teachers and some not good ones. Usually I get along with them pretty well. Honestly though most of the classes I've taken have been really easy, or at least easy to get a good grade, even when you haven't earned it. There aren't a whole lot of elective options so sometimes you're really limited and stuck with certain classes. It's also kind of difficult to make up credits if you're behind, didn't have the same credit opportunities in middle school, or are taking Seminary, but it is doable. The school board and administration are really awesome and nice people. You can totally tell they're really trying to do their absolute best for the students and community, so that's always reassuring. Hopefully things will get better in the future, and hopefully better opportunities of all kinds will arise for the student body to enjoy and take part of.
In my opinion, Othello High School has some great teachers, which has made my path to college much more enjoyable. I call those teachers great because without their help and motivation I would have never gotten on the honor roll or even have tried to take honors classes. Unfortunately every school also has its not-so-great teachers, but there isn't much to do about that anyway. Besides, a school shouldn't be evaluated based on its teachers, as that is mostly out of the principal's control. I'm giving my high school a 4 out of 5 because it's great as a school at the base level, and that's fine. The teachers teach, the teams play sports, what more could you ask for? However I feel like since I was a freshman at this school I haven't really felt engaged or connected to the school (maybe I just don't have a ton of school spirit), I think that OHS's focus is a little too sport-heavy, and I also just want more clubs were I could find people with the same interests that I have.
Had a great four years there but the school is not the best academically. Had a fairly low graduation rate compared to most high schools and very low test scores and standardized test pass rate. The teachers are very involved with their students and create a great experience, but a lot of student were personally not putting enough effort into their schooling. I was fortunate enough to be involved in the music department that has been revamped over the last few years. The marching band took many first place wins at different parades around the state when I was with them and the symphonic band and percussion ensembles were getting the highest ratings at festivals.
