Owen J. Roberts High School Reviews

Owen J. Roberts sits upon a wonderful location and is renowned for successful athletics teams throughout its competitive conference (the PAC). The facilities are excellent and something new is added every year or couple months to spice things up. The parents and alumni are greatly connected to the school and communicate frequently online to share experiences and thoughts about any subject. The school also has high test scores and a commendable graduation rate when compared locally and nationally with other schools.

While the school boasts numerous sports accomplishments and shines a spotlight on athletics, the music and art departments tend to be overshadowed most of the time. Diversity could also be greatly improved in the school as there is a 90% white student demographic. Teachers were highly involved and very thoughtful of their students, especially in the STEM and English departments. There are many clubs that fill most interests, but larger ones are often more prevalent.

My experience at Owen J. Roberts High School was filled with many learning experiences. From meeting great teachers to meeting wonderful friends, OJR has boughten me many experiences that I am grateful to have experienced. There were times where I felt like I got the resources I needed academically and I did feel college-ready, because of how devoted my teachers were for making me and other students feel prepared for what the future of our lives was gonna be. They instilled college values and helped me decide my major by the incredible amount of electives they offer, and thanks to them I am going to the school of my dreams and the major of my choice, Psychology. I am grateful for the amount of opportunity and experiences OJR has awarded me, and I only hope and wish the best for the district.
In eighth grade, I had moved here from Mason, Ohio. This school district challenged me thoroughly in academics and allowed me to become a member of multiple different groups. This school district is one of the very few that allowed me to become apart of the marching band and cross country team!
