    The sports have been struggling for a while now but the coaches are amazing. The teachers and staff members are wonderful. There is the occasional teacher who lacks teaching skills but over they are great. The staff really encourages students to take challenging courses and help throughout every step of the process. The school pays for any student who would like to take classes at the local Tech College. They also offer AP concurrent enrollment and early college. The is a wide diversity in the student body with a high sense of school spirit.

    I wen't to ogden high last year and I loved the academic programs the automotive is exellent and the theater arts & art the art teacher is great. What is also really good you feel like you can just open your mind and be free to learn great things there the sports are struggling but the coaches are really couraging students to go out for them all of the dance clubs are awesome the tigerettes are fantastic they are really good. But the parent involvement is struggling it is hard to know where to go to get involved but other than that the teachers are good principals coaches overall that is a wonderful school it has alot of potential and school spirit.

    The freshman curiculum is weak. The Fine Arts programs are fabulous. The educational options for upperclassmen are optimistic including the option of early college classes. The football program is struggling but other sports do well.

    School is willing to help students enroll in challenging classes if they are willing to work. Parental involvement helps. My daughter moved from private school and loves the diversity of students and classes offered and has sought out higher academically challenging classes A great choice!

    My son went to Ogden High for the sports. He loves it but frankly they are lacking in accademics. He isn't being challenged and frequently has problems with his teacher's method. I would advise a private school over OHS if you have the money or a new charter school with more experienced teachers.

    I have found that Ogden has been a good school and I feel that there is alot of school pride. I also feel that the teachers are doing a good job with the students.

    This School curriculum is standard but its getting better this year the best thing about this school is the tradition and the kids really respond to that there does need to be a few better teachers but for the most part its awesome!
