I am a graduate of O'Connell. I was able to succeed in academics and socially because of the atmosphere and the lifelong friendships I formed and maintain still after almost 40 years. The teachers care and they encouraged us to pursue activities that we wanted to pursue. I was a male cheerleader my senior year at O'Connell and it led to me being a University of Texas Cheerleader for 4 years, one year as head cheerleader and we were 2nd in the nation at the National Championships. My friendships have been life long I truly adore each and every one of them. It is not just a school to learn books, but it teaches you how to grow to be a good person.
This school has a family atmosphere where the academics are the priority. Hard to find the kind of atmosphere where the teachers and administrators care about kids as much as they do.
Quality school. Up to 100% those students graduating go on to a college or university.
