School review John Overton Comp High School (4820 Franklin Road)
John Overton Comp High School (4820 Franklin Road) Comment
My son loved his high school years at Overton so much so he didn't want it to end. He was more than ready for college by the time he graduated. There seems to be quite a lot of negative reviews mostly from students. The way I see it, as with any high school, you choose your friends wisely, you do your work, pay attention in class, follow instructions and complete homework and show respect towards your teachers and fellow students and you will get the most out of your high school years and be prepared for college by the time you graduate. I visited the school many times including sporting events and the students always seemed to have positive attitudes and the teachers and other faculty were pleasant and eager to help. I am however glad to see the school finally getting a much needed renovation and expansion because it was overcrowded and overdue for renovations. When completed it's suppose to have a top notch library, cafeteria and classrooms. Every inch of the school is getting renovated. Other than the overdue renovations I have had nothing but good experiences with this school and my son agrees.
