My school is working on improving the atmosphere of positiveness for teachers and students. The academics are good and the achievement grand.

I think people are harder on Ogallala's schools than they should be. It's really starting to improve. They're starting to bring in some really good teachers, especially for higher level classes like calculus and chemistry. Athletics are really strong in all areas, and the Fine Arts are phenomenal. They've recently had a state champion One Acts production and a couple state champions in speech. Ogallala's also starting to finally update everything. They have recently built a new track, new Performing Arts Center, and are beginning the construction of a new school. Overall, I think Ogallala's a great school that needs a second chance. When I was younger, I didn't think I ever wanted to come back or let my children grow up here, but after the last couple of years I would definitely do it.

Ogallala has a strong athletic and academic tradition and their Fine Arts program is simply amazing! The 1:1 laptop program is under utilized, but the school continues to improve.

Ogallala High School has had a downward fall in the past, but the last 6 years they have been slowly getting back on their feet. The students now have a better opportunity to learn by having the laptops to better communicate with the teachers or to work on homework while they are out of school. The teachers now like to teach the kids in a fun way. The school has a brand new track, there are many extra activities that students can participate in and the advisors make spending your time with the club worth it. I read previous remarks about the students not being welcomed, and what I would like to know is if the student tried to make friends. If they tried to be in clubs, fine arts, sports, or if they just went to school sat in the corner of the classrooms, only spoke if the teacher called on them, and then went home afterwards. In high school no matter where you are each student is responsible for their own high school life. They can play a pity party and do nothing or they can join in activities and make friends for life. They have had new updates and the community is trying to get a new school built, but are having problems getting it passed.
