Owosso High school is a well functioning, farely large school with around 1,500 kids total. We have good teachers who take time with students to make sure we are getting the education that we need for success. I would change some rules through the school regarding dress codes because in my opinion, it is a little too strict for a public school. I am also concerned about up coming bond actions regarding the schools physical updates. They are wanting to put the Middle school (6th-8th grade) up with the High school. I do not see this going smoothly knowing the High school will share the same parking lot as the young kids, and campus.

Overall, Owosso High school is an excellent school that focuses highly on academics and sports. The food could be better and so could the building itself because the Californian 1960's design of the school is its biggest downside with the long and maze-like hallways combined with the lack of air circulation in the main wings to let the hot air trapped in the tall hallways escape and lower the temp of the school. Owosso offers many AP and Honors programs and allows for online education to fill in what it doesn't have and the teachers are fantastic and very involved.
A good school with a fairly wide range of classes to choose from. A good music program, plenty of opportunities for the sciences as well. Online classes are allowed, and teachers often go beyond what is expected to help you. Lacking in diversity, but still a good place to learn what you need for college.
