What I liked about Ottawa High School was back when I was going to school it seem close like family. We was concern about each other no matter what color you was. The teachers seemed like they was more concerned about how you learned. It wasn't just a job. Now the students grades are poor and you hear so many negative thing about the school. I feel that in order to get better review now they needs more parent participation, better teacher with a caring heart and students that want to learn.

Ottawa hills has a community with a family type of feeling. the school I very strong with helping students succeed and carry on with their education after high school. With it being a mostly black school, ottawa hills provide many HBCU college trips. Ottawa hills also provides many after school activities that students can get involved in .
I liked how diverse the school was. Although I strongly feel the school is not the greatest. I feel that because if you weren't a senior or didn't play sports they school and it's faculty members didn't find you important. That too me was my overall outlook on the school. Granted the school was a nice size and had decent teachers that knew how to teach but that didn't contribute to the fact that some classes didn't have teachers. I find it a slap in the face when a teacher leaves for a "better" job and abandons a class of about thirty kids to be babysat for the majority of a school year learning absolutely nothing.
