Oakland Schools Reviews

I was able to go to high school and obtain the knowledge that i needed to be prepared for college courses. The school offered advanced placement courses and dual enrollment as well. It felt like any other high school would if im being honest, you go to class, go to your after school sport or club then go home. I thought that was good though because it made sure that you were focused and not carried away with something else at the school.

I would love to see more diversity among Oakland Schools. Otherwise, it was a great experience. The school teachers come from good universities providing great teaching to students who wants to excel in class. They were very kind and offered me 1 on 1 tutoring early morning before class started.
Oakland schools has mentally prepared me not only for a college education but also the real world. I am very confident and have amazing social skills thanks to Oakland Schools.
