Some most defining moment in my HS education go back to OHA. I am now 63 years old, yet remember my time there as powerful, enlightening and life changing. I will always be grateful to OHA's faculty and leadership staff for the opportunity to grow and become that person once hiding inside me. I hope anyone considers OHA for their children understands the depth of dedication from all OHA staff to help develop your children into refined capable leaders of our society.

As a parent, I have been very impressed with the dedication with the staff and how hard they work to ensure student success. We are from an upper middle class family and found that our son fit in very well with the other students. He has a lot of nice friends and generally enjoys his time there. They are very strict when it come to behavior and drugs. This is also a plus for us knowing that he is (relatively safe) from temptations. They do have an over-the-top basketball program which provides a lot of excitement at the school. However, our son does not play basketball and we have found that the basketball does not get in the way of their focus on the achievement of their students.
