Ottawa Senior High School offers a variety of classes to prepare their students for college and the workforce. One of the best features is that Ottawa High has paired with Neosho County Community College, allowing students to take college classes on the high school campus and receive full college credit for theses class. This allows students to get a head start on their education at a fraction of the price. I would recommended Ottawa Senior High School as an institution to prepare students for their future in succeeding in their field of study.

Being a Cyclone has been amazing. I have been in Ottawa, Kansas, all of my life and being a senior at Ottawa I have realized just how great it is here. All of the teachers help you out, whether it's something you don't understand in or outside of class or you just need an extension on your dead line. We are offered so many amazing opportunities here: they give us the ACT for free our junior year, we have the chance to take college courses through the high school, get into our future careers early and get the experience we need in those fields anywhere from child care to graphic design like what I am looking at. Here, we are more than a school; yes we all have our own little areas, but we are an entire nation at this school. We all stick up for each other and it has been one of the best experiences of my life.
Great place to have an education, staff are willing to help and work with students. I enjoyed all 4 years. I was able to enhance my academics with dual credits towards college credits. A variety of sPorts were available to all and l was able to participate and have a balance with my academics. The clubs offered increased my knowledge and provide a great outlet to meet and mingle with the entire student body.
