To anyone discouraged by the misleading 1 or 2 star ratings don't be! This school offers some of the best education and curriculum. We are always ranked as one of the top schools in the country and I can see why. The teachers not only make learning easy but fun too! And don't get fooled by the "rich kid" status. It's so untrue. Just like any other school we are mostly composed of average middle class families but for some reason it's the very few overly wealthy people that stick out! This community is basically one big family. We are so tight knit and everyone has each other's backs. An instance where a senior at our school died showed just that. The community came together and cried and comforted and helped those who had been most effected. The Ottawa Hills High School Junior High and Elementary School are some of the most amazing schools in the country and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone considering!

In response to previous commentary you cannot judge a school just by taking an ACT there. The adults proctoring the tests are not Ottawa Hills teacher; I would know because I went there. don't And at least half of the people taking the ACT at Ottawa Hills do not go to that school. Ottawa Hills may seem exclusive from the outside but the community is very friendly. Like anywhere else there are going to be mean people but the education is superior to any other school in the area. I spent most of my years in a different school so I understand the differences between schools. Overall if you are considering sending your child there I would highly recommend it. This is truly a college-preperatory school so don't attend if you're not willing to push yourself or are not a decent student.
This a horrible school I am a student at Rogers high school and I went to Ottawa hills high school to take my ACT. when I went I felt like the entire time I was being discriminated because of my economic status. While there I was harassed by multiple adults saying that I should have taken the test some where else. This school might have great test scores and a even better graduation rate however the people there are very judgmental close minded and classist. Ottawa hills high school looks good on paper but in reality the school is filled with people who have no respect and can not see past greed and wealth.
Actually Ottawa Hills was ranked # 27 in State of Ohio public schools m 2011-12 Not in the Top 3 nor has it been in the last 5-6 yrs
The review posted 1/15/2011 is grossly misleading. I graduated from OHHS as did both my children. In between I lived on the east coast for 19 years and as a result have some perspective on the school. First to call the academic program as merely "decent" is to ignore numerous indicators of the school's academic excellence. It is regularly ranked by the State of Ohio as one of the three best public school in the state. It has repeatedly been named a Blue Ribbon School of Excellence by the US DoE. Close to 100% of its graduates go on to college every year and several members of its graduating class (usually around 90 students) go on to Ivy League or comparably highly selective institutions. It has a goodly number of stellar teachers. Yes the tiny Village of Ottawa Hills has a disproportionate number of upper-middle class folks and very little if any poverty. Yes as in many schools some parents attempt to throw their weight around--and sometimes unfortunately they succeed. In this respect it is a lot like other public schools situated in similar socioecomonic communities. To suggest though that the school "cannot possibly create good members of society" is absurd.
The academic programs here may be decent but the people are horrible. A wealthy community that has no consequences for children breeds a school filled with bullies. The administration is easily cowed by rich or influential parents so any child with a parent who knows a lawyer will get away with everything. The social environment here cannot possibly create good members of society since none of the students have experienced the "real world" of consequences.
Ottawa Hills is an excellent school with very friendly welcoming people.
