Opelika High School is not a great school at all. There are some good extracurricular activities, but the only ones that get any real notification is the football team and bad.

I attend Opelika High School and I am in the Band. I find this school a great school for extracurriculars, and the courses are challenging. The school is a great school for anyone and everyone.
