Did you notice that all the bad reviews for this school are from like--2 years ago? There's a reason for that. The school used to be not so great. I had two children that went to Osborne. One graduated last year and one who graduated three years ago. Admittedly, the school when my older son graduated, the school experience wasn't great. It wasn't bad really, just not extraordinary. There were communication issues between leadership at the school and the teachers. That subsequently affected the students. That being said, my youngest had a great experience from about sophomore year on. She loved her teachers and there seemed to be a shift in attitude within the school. Students, parents, and teachers are all on the same page. They love Osborne and so do we. Don't let a few crabby old reviews deter you from this great school.
As a current student at Osborne, I am not pleased about the things I hear about my school. People think that bad things will happen at this school when in reality the school is actually pretty quiet. The staff and the student body are the nicest people that I have met in my life. The staff treats everyone that walks through the front doors with respect. Sure, there may be students that are rowdy, but all schools have students like that. The students at Osborne are great people with big aspirations. I have to admit that before I started high school, I had my doubts about Osborne. But, as I look back at the past 3 years I've spent at this school, I realize that not only have I met good people and have made great lifelong friends, I have gained one of the best educations I have ever gotten.
Extremely poor communication or none at all from the principal,class administrators and some teacher. Reports of physical threats to other students go unaddressed. After the student & parents report it numerous time. The students gets assaulted by the culprit and without investigating expells the victim. Osborne high is a high school ran by the students. You will be told policies are in place and certain behavior won't be tolerated,well its a facade. Students that have been expelled or dropped out,freely roam and appear on campus at their leisure. This review comes by experience. I have numerous emails sent to this high school principal & administrators without a reply or a return phone call. Very unfortunate.
I have officially started my second year at Osborne... And yes, this school is not perfect, it has it's rough edges. However, where is a perfect high school? I bet no one can name a school without the occurrence of a teen pregnancy, a gang, fights, or anything that has deemed Osborne as a "bad" school. Can you? I didn't think so. The entire atmosphere of Osborne has been completely changed within in the past decade or so, but so many people are simply to stubborn to admit their ignorance to the fact that the students that were here then, are long gone. Osborne has been drastically improving scores in every area of testing, and students are really motivated to learn, because we want to prove the people who have stereotyped us into "nobody's" and "soon to be drug dealers" because of where we live, or our income. We want to prove these assumptions wrong, so it's something that we have and need to take an advantage of because these students with all the money in "better" schools like Allatoona, Campbell, McEachern, or Sprayberry have. The teachers actually care about their students, not about their grades only in that class, but in all our classes, and what's going on in our lives.
