I loved my high school experience. I got involved in many clubs and tried out for sports, didn’t get into all the things I tried out for but that’s okay because it taught me a lesson. I made friends that are family to me now. The teachers at cosumnes oaks really care about your well being and will go out of their way to make sure your on track. The counselor are the best! They make sure your mental health is okay, and talk to you when they see your grades are slacking. I live in Sacramento and have to drive 30 minutes but I wouldn’t change that for the world because I truly do believe this school is the best. I made environmental club which has 15 students actively involved. I have opportunity that many students don’t receive and I’m truly grateful to attend to cosumnes oaks high school.

What I appreciate most about COHS is the variety of activities and opportunities available to the students. While some schools focus only on sports or specific groups, all of CO's pathways and programs are given attention and considered important on campus.
Students and staff are friendly, and it is easy to make personal connections with teachers despite the large school population. School spirit is normal, but not forced in a cult-like way as in some schools.
The problems at CO are the problems that all public schools face. However, involved students are sure to thrive here! CO gives its students tons of opportunities, but it comes down to the students themselves to take advantage of them.
My experience with Cosumnes Oaks High School has been fairly positive seeing as how many programs are put in place for every students interest. Culture is also widely celebrated whether it be through club performances or announcements on our daily news, there is always recognition for the vast range of culture at Cosumnes Oaks. Some things I would like to see change are the late policies, rather than try to see the problem, the students are just being blamed for not waking up early enough, when in reality sometimes there are circumstances that may not always allow a student to be on time. However, Cosumnes Oaks prepares students for their futures properly and adjusts to fit all the interests of it's students.
