I loved this school and my children now go to it my thoughts return still cheating the red and white Go Tigers!
I graduated from OG in 2000. I did not play sports, band, or anything else. Just did well in academics and was a shy person. However, i did fit in and loved this school. Even, begged my parents to never move until i graduted :-). I think the teachers were very involved especially if a student needed help. I liked the community as well. Didnt have many worries there.
If you were not born here, you will not fit in to well, unless your child is extremely good at sports!
