I am a student at OCHS and I can say that this is a very good school. There are some setbacks with both teachers and students and how they approach each other and conflicts. There are some adults here that I truly trust with my problems, I know that they will try to help me make good decisions even if I don't see it at the time. I recommend coming to this school because even if you've done bad things, they give you a second chance here, especially if you work with them to improve yourself.
