My experiences at O'Connell have been unique and special, and I wouldn't have wanted high school to go any other way.

DJO has had a profound impact on who I am and how I've developed through high school. Teachers at every level pushed me and asked me to strive for excellence, and I have also matured and grown in my faith.
