Open Quote Great school,state of the art facility, caring teachers, caring and professional administrators and incredible opportunities for students if they choose to take advantage of them. They participate in an excellent athletic league and have over 35 after school clubs. OAHS has increased graduation rates, increased college acceptance rates, increased AP courses and decreased disciplinary concerns. The students and staff are really exceptional. This school has really changed for the better over the last 7 years. Close Quote

Open Quote Has gotten a bad rap from old but still outstanding posts.
Great new buildings and facilities. Great faculty - many with highest education degrees. Has great special education and special interest programs.
It is going through a renaissance now that more upscale homes are being sold in the area. Lots of money invested into improving rating. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
