"Being part of the Mock Trial team at OP has been very rewarding. It goes to show what we were able to accomplish with hard work and dedication. Throughout the season, the team put in a ton of work for many months with 2-3 hour practices 5-6 days a week. This hard work allowed us to win the county championship once again and come close to winning the regional championship as well. Seeing our hard work pay off at these trials was a very gratifying experience which also allowed the team to grow closer since we were together so often."
"My favorite part of being at OP is the school community. I have made friendships and developed relationships that will last a lifetime. I also enjoy the love and the passion teachers have for ensuring a challenging academic environment. I feel OP is preparing us to be leaders of the next generation. Lastly, I enjoy being able to participate in various clubs and sports activities."
"What makes OP a great place to work? It is one thing to love what you do, but to be able to do your work in a community that cares and is supportive of all its members, that inspires you to do great things each and every day, that to me, is being blessed in what you do."
