Oakland School District Reviews
What I liked about the Oakland School District was the size. We get a lot of one on one time with the teachers because there is not many students. The teachers also really care about your success and want to see you succeed in your goals. What I would like to see differently is the vibe and strictness. I feel very uptight and sometimes uncomfortable. Although I understand school needs to be taken seriously, we are here four out of the seven days a week. I think it is important for us to enjoy our time here and have fun. Kids can be successful with things not being so uptight.
I came to Oakland High School after two years at Oregon City High School, a school which is over twice the size of the city of Oakland itself. Oregon City was decent academically, but with 2500 students, it was hard to feel like a cohesive family. Oakland High School, meanwhile, has less than 200 students, making it feel much more like a family. This small size also made it much easier to come out of my shell; at Oregon City, it was too easy to fade into one of many antisocial cliques and never join any clubs, while the much smaller size of Oakland makes it much more difficult to resist joining the various clubs, some of which weren't even an option in Oregon City. The two main problems with the school are a lack of diversity, which isn't shocking for rural Oregon, and some mediocre food choices like the pizza and baked potatoes. Overall, however, a very pleasant school.
The staff are generally friendly and supportive if you are not going around trying to cause trouble.
