    The teachers and students seem to be divided into two categories. There are those who care and those who don't. Those who care teach AP courses and take AP courses. Those who don't are in the remaining courses. If your child is in the average courses I think they are in a much more difficult learning environment to be in due to the thugs who create distraction and the uninterested teachers who are not in control of those classes. Hence your child's academic performance emotional wellbeing and self-esteem are all better off by being in advanced classes. I give the school overall an average score for not taking initiative to have more staff who care and for not dealing more effectively with the students who cause hell for everyone. I know each student is a placeholder for cash. However when they are allowed to cause hell for others they are robbing the other students of their right to an education. Make the alternative school bigger and like a prison. Then load it up with a few teachers and security. Get the $$$ and spare the rest of our kids.

    I transferred to Oldham in 9th grade and I have to say this school is the best I've been to. Most teachers are great at what they do they care and they help you set high goals for yourself. There's not a lot of drama unless you make it for yourself. They have a wide range of extra curricular activities. This school is plain and simply amazing.

    I believe that oldham county schools are highly over rated. Students dont do any work while in school and do all the work outside school. This school has no respect for extra curricular activites. Go south.

    I would give the school 2 Stars. I believe the students are not challenged unless you are in a AP class. My daughter brings home little or no homework - she needs very little study time to pull an A. The guidance staff are stretched beyond there daily capacity having little time with the students to work out schedules appropriate for them I agree with the student some of the staff are there only for the paycheck.

    This school is ok in the media's eyes but once you get there it's a different story. Lot's of drama and fights more than usual. But i guess it's just who you hang out with that influences your years there. Oh and most of the teachers are nice and good at teaching but there are a select few that only teach for the paycheck. This is coming from the view of a Freshman. I hope i helped )

    OCHS is by far one of the best schools in the area. I have only taught at OCHS for 1 year but I have come to feel at home and accepted by the students parents and administration. The school has a wonderfully involved student body and most of the students are extremely bright helpful and respectful. Besides being tops in academics and extracurriculars the school has recently been under renovation to facilities and the Smart Classroom (multi-media) systems have been installed in every classroom. OCHS is achieving above and beyond.

    This school was good 15 years ago when I went. I came back to bring let my kids come to the same great school I did. I am dissapointed. It is no where near the same caliber school it was then. Every class teaches the same thing. No matter what. They teach you what is going to be on the standarized tests at the end of the year. And thats it. And because they want to score so well on them (which they are falling every year) they do not take the time to fully explain many of the subjects. It is not the same great school it was. And they there focus is not where it should be. In relation to curricilum or discipline.

    OCHS is by far the greatest school within the county. I have 3 children. The oldest & middle child attended another school in the county. I felt their presence was just another stat. My youngest attends OCHS & I truly believe the teachers and staff are there to make a difference. Their contribution to helping our children achieve with academics sports & liberal arts goes above and beyond. Without hestiation I highly recommend OCHS.
