South Webster Junior/Senior High School
234 Best Public High Schools in Ohio
- Bloom-Vernon Local School District, OH
Senior: I love that South Webster is such a close knit school. You feel life you are apart of a huge family, not just a school. They are helpful in any given situation and the staff truly looks out for you. They offer many college level courses which helps out with college, tremendously. I would only suggest that they open a class for students to prepare for the ACT and a financial literacy class so that kids fully understand things that are essential for the real world.

Portsmouth Junior/Senior High School
- Portsmouth City School District, OH
High School Senior: I live in Southern Ohio. It's not the most progressive place, and frankly, as far many people are concerned the world beyond the river valley might as well not exist. In Scioto county, most kids are expected to take up a trade like carpentry or follow in one of their parents' footsteps. In Portsmouth, however, we have Shawnee State University and SOMC. Through our beautiful hospital and university, we have been inspired at Portsmouth High School to pursue more than what the rest of the schools in the county do.
At other schools, they want to get you a diploma and do not expect you to be that great of a reader or to go on to college. In my graduating class, an overwhelming majority is going to college, many with the ambition to become doctors (the hospital has been very influential). Inspired by my French teacher, I want to work for the UN one day as an interpreter. None of us would have such lofty ambitions if not for our teachers telling us every step of the way that there was a world beyond Scioto county, with much more than one little university and a shiny new hospital.
