A favorite memory of mine from OHS is from when I had prepared a speech but had chosen for the first time not to write it out completely on note cards, but instead to write only bullet points and try to make it more loosely structured. It was the first time I truly enjoyed public speaking. The feedback my teacher gave to me was heartfelt and I could tell that she had really payed attention and had noticed my strengths. She inspired me to continue developing my gifts with public speaking, and to this day I am thankful for her and many other teachers that payed attention to and cared about their students. One thing I would like to see change, however, is the fact that coaches are required to teach a class in one of the schools within the district. It was evident that, largely, they truly didn't care about that portion of their job and would have happily given it up. I think it is unwise to give teaching positions to adults that obviously do not care about teaching.
Review Ozark High School
Ozark High School was a very fun experience for me. I participated in several extracurricular activities that where available to me and other students. The teachers, for the most part, are very helpful and understanding. The overall staff is kind and treats students with respect.
I love it here. It's a very spirited and involved school. We have pep rally's every other Feiday for basketball and football. We have dances and school activities. Our lunch is a choice. We have some freedom, which is always good. Creativity is accepted here. We give out a Hillbilly Hero award each 9 weeks to the best students. We have a pretty diverse student body and there seem to be no problems.
