Dear Ogden High School Community,
Welcome to another exciting school year at OHS. It has been fun to see our returning students and also to get to know our new students. I can’t wait to see what amazing things we can accomplish together this year.
One of the greatest characteristics of the Ogden community is the genuine care and compassion shared between faculty, staff and students. It is a privilege to be a part of a community that cares so much about our students, staff and teachers.
Due to the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic we ask that you stay home when you are not feeling well and continue to wash your hands often. We will keep the school clean and will continue to sanitize to mitigate the spread of germs. Masks are not mandatory but instead a personal choice for each student, staff and teacher.
I look forward to another successful school year! It is going to be an amazing year of teaching and learning!
Shauna Haney, Principal OHS

Estimada comunidad de la escuela Ogden High,
Bienvenidos a otro año escolar emocionante en OHS. Ha sido divertido ver a nuestros estudiantes que regresan y también conocer a nuestros nuevos estudiantes. No puedo esperar a ver qué cosas increíbles podemos lograr juntos este año.
Una de las características más importantes de la comunidad de Ogden es el cuidado y la compasión genuinos que comparten los profesores, el personal y los estudiantes. Es un privilegio ser parte de una comunidad que se preocupa tanto por nuestros estudiantes, personal y maestros.
Debido al impacto continuo de la pandemia de COVID-19, le pedimos que se quede en casa cuando no se sienta bien y que continúe lavándose las manos con frecuencia. Mantendremos la escuela limpia y continuaremos desinfectando para mitigar la propagación de gérmenes. Las máscaras no son obligatorias, sino una elección personal para cada estudiante, personal y maestro.
¡Espero tener otro año escolar exitoso! ¡Será un año increíble de enseñanza y aprendizaje!
Shauna Haney, Directora OHS
Ogden High School, Home of the Tigers, celebrates a rich 100-year tradition of high achievement in academics, activities and the community. Students, staff and teachers are supported by an involved and caring community that seeks excellence to honor this legacy.
Ogden High School is the home of the International Baccalaureate program in Ogden, which is a magnet for students throughout the area who seek a rigorous high school academic experience. The school also provides extensive opportunities for all students to be involved in extra-curricular activities including theater, arts, clubs and guilds and athletics.In 1935, the construction of Ogden High School began under the umbrella of the Works Progress Administration (WPA) at an unheard of price of $1.2 million. The school was designed by Hodson and MeClenahan who utilized the new design “art deco” specifically “classical moderne,” a Greco-Roman style with Deco elements popular in government and civic buildings at the time, such as the Ogden Municipal building.
The school was completed on September 17, 1936 and opened the following year in August of 1937. An estimated 3,000 people attended the dedication ceremony in the new auditorium on October 29, 1937 where the speaker referred to the building as, “ the structure that caught the rhythm of the Rockies because of its mountainous setting that reflected a ruggedness in an intricate design of beauty.”
In the summer of 2007, OHS began an extensive remodel costing nine million dollars. The project was completed in three phases, taking six years, and moved the gym to a separate building, created a science wing and renovated/updated the school’s infrastructure. The auditorium was also renovated as a separate project and serves as one of the premier examples of Art Deco in the United States.
OHS today is a daily reminder of the creative vision and dedication of the educational leaders in 1937.
Ogden High School will provide a safe, supportive learning environment where students regardless of their background will graduate. Through earning their diploma, students will have opportunities to fulfill their potential and to develop the skills and knowledge to become responsible and successful adults after high school.
