School Reviews

  • Recommended November 22, 2010 - OHHS just completed a massive remodel and expansion of the school building and it looks great! My son is have a GREAT time at this school and has far more learning opportunities here than at any other high school in the area. The program options include a long list of Advanced Placement Classes to CTE classes in which my son is earning college credit is the school (15 credits this year alone for FREE). Strong sports, music, and award-winning clubs and activities round out this school. If you have the chance to have your child in OHHS, go for it! You'll be glad you did - I sure am! - Posted by Parent
