    "I am a Sophmore at Ola High and I must say that it is an amazing school. The teachers are very nice and they will try their very best as long as a student shows effort. Ola offers a lot of electives that are very convenient. The students are all different in their own way so no matter what you're personality is like, there's a group of friends to hang out with. Ola is very organized and is almost bully free(occasional drama but every high school has that)."

    "I have 3 children in Ola High and they have met with racism. Those ridiculous hateful words are painful for my children. Ignorance is still present. My children are receiving a great education. I do feel that one of my daughters has been let down in the math department. She has a teacher more interested in coaching sports instead of educating children in what counts. Education very good, racism , discussing and insulting. Hold your heads high and move on because the teachers are also ignorant to the racism."

    "I graduated from Ola High in 2010. We were the first graduating class to go all the way through, since the doors opened when we were freshmen. I am now a college senior, and I can say with absolute confidence that Ola prepared me for the rigor of college. I have friends who attended other schools in other counties who did well in high-school but had a very rough transition into college coursework and work-load. Ola is an outstanding school with top-notch teachers and administrators. Mr. Iddings works hard for the students and parents, and always has. In response to the comments about racism and intolerance, I would like to see you try and find a school where there is not one ignorant person. Just like in the real world, you have to take what one person may say with a grain of salt. Ola is a great school, with a ton of cultural clubs and programs that people of all cultures are involved in, which is one of the reasons that I loved attending there. Part of being in high school means that you have to apply yourself and take responsibility for your actions. If you do that here, you will have an enjoyable four years and learn everything you need to know to be prepared when you leave."

    "Ola High is a terrific high school. I have been extremely pleased with the level of instruction and the variety of activities available for students. The AP and Honors classes are challenging, and I feel my kids have been well prepared for college. My only complaints are the parents and students who feel that rules do not apply to them, but you will get these anywhere. The band program is one of the best in the state, and the orchestra program is outstanding."
