Owosso High School has been great! I've become close with numerous teachers and with those bonds made my high school experience 10x better. The only thing that can be bad is the students, but every school has that problem and it is really unavoidable.

Owosso High School is well known for its band and academic opportunities. This school offers many Advanced Placement (AP) courses for its students and has an honors program for most of the classes offered. This school has one of the best bands in Michigan and is well know for the Trojan Marching Band (TMB) and its concert season band, which has maintained straight ones (the best score) for about fifty years.
Owosso High School could improve its athletic options and create buildings that many sports could use for practice when the weather is not cooperating, for example tennis. This school has average sport teams, like baseball, football, track, and more. The food at Owosso High is average, but food programs at Owosso are great. All students at Owosso have free breakfast and lunch and students in need receive food bags during holidays and about every week.
My time at Owosso High School has been a time of a lifetime. The staff members are fair 100% of the time and are always cool to joke around with. Everything is ran well, the sports programs are rising back to the top, the band is the best in the state hands down. Owosso is once again on the rise!
