13 Parent Reviews for Ottawa Hills High School

Ottawa Hills is a school full of students who face immense challenges. Most come from families who do not emphasize the importance of education and thus are not involved. The front office staff is offensive, difficult, and frustrating to interact with. Administration is concerned only with meeting minimal ...  Read more

Ottawa Hills is not for the faint of heart. I have subbd there and was shocked by the behaviors of the students. Each class had only 4-8 dedicated students while the rest of class kicked chairs down, called me names, ripped up their assignments and threw the remnants on the ground. I called security, ...  Read more

As a retired Grand Rapids Public Schools high school teacher (28 years of service) it saddens me to rate Ottawa Hills High School with 1 star. Certainly there were dedicated students, parents, administrators and teachers. But their numbers are depressingly low. I continue to hope for the very best for ...  Read more

I am a parent of a student at OHHS. I feel that the school has potential to be one of the best in Grand Rapids. There are some issues that need to be handled. Kids should not be allowed to roam the halls as much as they do, security needs to be tighter, attitudes of staff need to adjusted, and more control ...  Read more

I am currently a student attending OHHS and i believe that Ottawa truly has the potential to be at the top as well as any other school does. For the adults who claim that there is no hope for our school, this shows how much support we have. I am a student who has earned my 4.0 gpa and i dont believe ...  Read more

I feel that there should be a higher level of respect for all involved within Ottawa Hills. The principal, who acts childish at times, needs to buckle down more. They need to have security at all doors within the school so that middle school children, who skip school, don't roam the halls, as if they ...  Read more

the parents of the students don't get involved and thus the education ends as soon as they leave the school doors. if there is ever going to be any education going on in that school there must be education also at home. so in my opinion this is a terrible school for your students to go to.

Being a graduate of OHHS I am glad to see that it is improving. The was a stretch in the early 2000's that I didnt know if they would be able to get out of. It starts with the administration, who now seems to be in control. It will continue to rise but the parents of the students need to take an active ...  Read more

I believe that Ottawa Hills has the potential to be the top public school in the Grand Rapids Public Schools district. The issue is that parents are NOT involved. How can tachers be productive and really educate their students when parents don't bother to find out what's going on in their son's or daughter's ...  Read more

I think that Ottawa Hills is a very great place to be for learning. The teachers give the students the opprtunity to learn instead of not breaking it down to them. They also make sure that the students are learning and not failing. Like other schools OHHS does need some work. We need alot of parent support ...  Read more
