Ogden is a diverse, caring school that cares about kids and their academic and social growth while encouraging parental and community involvement. However, the building’s age and size have created some limitations on the school.
The last four decades have taken their toll on the building and created challenges:
Capacity: The school is overcapacity. As a result, some students must attend classes in portable classrooms outside the main building, students eat lunch in shifts and restrooms and storage are inadequate.
Facility design: Ogden’s past as an open-concept school still requires students and staff to pass through classrooms to get from one room to another. This can disrupt teaching and learning.
Aging structure: The school’s roof received major repairs in summer 2015. However, the repairs were not intended to be a permanent solution. Dry rot is an ongoing problem, and the roof leaks when it rains.
