    When we moved to the area 3 years ago we selected a house based on school ratings and Oviedo schools have not disappointed us. We have a child in elementary and high school and both schools have excellent teachers school curriculum and activities.

    We moved to Oviedo two years ago with two children. We had researched the schools and talked to parents and the Oviedo schools were highly recommended. Our main concern was with our child entering 10th grade in high school how would they adjust fit in. Besides the high academic standards we found that the many clubs and activities were a blessing. Our student joined the swim team and made friends quickly and even earned a high school letter. Our student also made a diverse group of friends students from Kenya Sweden England Australia and many other places. Looking forward to next year.

    We moved to Oviedo specifically to enroll our child in Oviedo schools and in particular Oviedo High School. We are glad we did very happy with all that this school has to offer. The curriculum is competitive and challenging. So many interesting electives and activities for the students to enjoy. Our student getting ready to be a senior is excited about choosing a college. Many AP courses offered in class and online as well. We are very happy with the safe atmosphere and the high level of communication with the teachers and staff. The teachers and students has a lot of pride and spirit.

    My daughter has had a wonderful experience at Oviedo High. The school offers a wide variety of support for any interest or skill that a student has. Academics and scholarship are emphasized but OHS has a first rate choir music art dance and ROTC program as well. Every effort is made to promote civc and community-mindedness at an early age. It's a friendly upbeat school with a strong leader in Principal Lundquist and professional dynamic teachers the vast majority of whom demonstrate exceptional concern for their students. Your child will receive a private school education in a public school. I will say that I think there is too much testing there. My daughter has another classroom test every week it seems in addition to the already over the top benchmark and state testing. Other than that I'm extremely happy with OHS.

    I had a terrible experience at this school. There is no diversity or any sort of kindness or welcoming spirit to people who are different or not from Oviedo. I spent my entire first year there as a transfer sitting alone at lunch. You don't fit in unless you're white and attractive. Period.

    Oviedo High School has been a great school for 2 of my daughters class of 2012 & 2014. They do the very best they can despite cutbacks. Their new Bio Science & Technology Program has been wonderful and challenging for my Science major daughter and their new Science labs are better than ones at colleges! Art teachers have been so encouraging to my Artistic daughter. Homeschoolers are welcome to take some classes and the rest online (SC/FLVA)They take every students safety very seriously and local police involvement has been positive and Ms. Pressley keeps a careful eye on the school parking lots (Love her!) As for office staff if parents have a good attitude and patience the staff will do anything to help you. Register your kids for Honors and AP courses to get the most of the class! Oviedo has teachers with PHD's from Rollins and other great colleges. They want our kids to succeed and go on to college. My only wish is that they had more money to hire more guidance counselors and teachers. Keep that in mind the next time you vote!

    My daughter is a Freshman this year and we absolutely love OHS so far. Most of my daughter's friends from middle school were zoned for Winter Springs and at first we were highly upset that we were zoned for OHS but now you couldn't pay us to leave!! All of her teachers except for one have been amazing. Only complaint I have is the office staff is pretty unfriendly and principal does not follow through with parental concerns.

    I have been extremely happy with OHS. Our school zone previously included Winter Springs High School. Our oldest graduated from Winter Springs. With the rezoning we were very upset for no other reason than unfamiliarity. After now have 1 child graduate from Oviedo & a second in his sophmore year I am so happy the change had been made. Oviedo HS is much warmer more of a small town school feel wonderful teachers and a terrific student population. Would have no other High School!

    I have 3 kids who graduated from Oviedo High. I was a very involved parent and loved every minute of it. The teachers and administration could not have been any better. I always felt appreciated and welcome. My children are freshmen and sophmores in college and are doing well thanks to Oviedo High. They were most definitely prepared. The AP program was the best. My kids were involved in Chorus which is by far the best program around I have checked it out. They were also involved in cheerleading football and wrestling. They have great memories! Thank you Oviedo.

    Overll great school. Due to community involvement and parental volunteering and teachers taking pride in the school. The administration is the weak link. So long as you are in lock-step you have 100% access. If you ask questions or propose a different method they border on paranoia.

    We are the parents of a current freshman. The quality of academics is exceptional. Extra-curricular activities are abundant and diverse. The parent involvement is incredible. There is standing room only at every event parents can attend. My daughter's teachers have all taken the time to address her individual concerns making this one of her most challenging and rewarding years. She is involved in numerous extracurricular activities and she has made an incredible amount of friends. Every time I have visited the school everyone from the administration to the teachers to the students have been polite and respectful. We visited private schools in the area but Oviedo High School offered more especially for a gifted student than any of the area private schools. OHS is currently undergoing several million dollars in renovations. My daughter is thoroughly enjoying high school - which makes our lives so much easier. Go Lions!

    Parent involvement is astounding it's standing room only when the school invites the parents. The teachers are very very good interested educated and motivated. My son graduated and my daughter is there now. Having gone to decent schools in Long Island New York in the ate 60's early 70's Oviedo High is better than those schools which I would consider better than shools today. Oviedo High is a top notch qualit education and a very good atmosmphere I don't think you can get much beetr anywhere in the country.

    My son's high school years at OHS have been the best he has gained confidence from so many teachers! Every instructor I have ever contacted has been very quick to respond to my inquiries. The 'PIN Access' system is great (thank you for participating)! The instructors are easily approachable by email or phone. My son has been part of the OHS LIONS football team for several years - the team/school spirit has been fantastic & an inspiration! As my son son leaves for college next year I know his years at OHS will always remain a fond part of his life. I feel he is ready for the next stage of his life. OHS & the OHS LIONS-we will keep you in our hears! Sincerely Sheila Mace

    My 3 children have attended OHS from 94 to-date. My daughter is currently a junior. The academic level is good however I do have complaints about the administration (not the teachers). Administration is often difficult to reach and I've found some of them to be curt with me. My kids have all said the office staff is often rude. Additionally 2 of my kids have had the same guidance counselor because the counselor is assigned by alphabetical listing of your name. That should be rotated as we have not been very happy with our counselor. She rushes & is not thorough with explanations. The administration should be more conscious of how they speak not only to the kids but to the parents. Col Nardo & NJROTC is great!

    There is an awful lot of wasted time on things like movies etc. Some teachers (more than a few) are into their own egos rather than helping students succeed. Asst principals always back them up.
