OFA is a fantastic school for academics and sports. However, I'd like to see more diversity in the arts. I'd also like to see more communication as far as parent/ student opinions for the school. A majority of the teachers at my school are fantastic! Quite a few of them are down to earth and try their best to connect with their students, and I admire that very much.

Loved it! Teachers were exceptional, athletics program was very strong. Owego is preparing me for college very well.
Going to school here has been a grand experience. The people there are very relaxed and getting along with people easy. The staff are able to assist you in just about everything. Teachers and fellow students are present and able to help in any way they can. Academics are well and one can excel in the process of earning an advanced high school diploma. Although challenging, the courses are perfect ways to earn college credit at little or no cost and allow one to receive high school credit at the same time. The school can provide plenty of ways to help a struggling student or someone who just wants some extra study times. Before, during, and after school, teachers are usually willing to help a student out if need be or to even just go over assignments. Overall, a pretty good experience and a fun time.
