The teachers are very nice and friendly, the school is clean, cafeteria food doesn’t suck, but what I love most is the variety of courses and classes you can take, it’s amazing. There is a wide range of classes that fit to your desire, AP Art, computer science, engineering, photography, BC calculus, child development, you name it. I think you should definitely attend okemos if you want!

Excellent schools with commitment to college preparation. Exceptional arts programs including music, drama, art, and performance. Outstanding science, math, and foreign language offerings.
Amazing school. I feel so lucky to have gone to such a wonderful school who prepared me for education beyond high school. I miss my teachers dearly and wish my professors put in the same amount of passion and determination like my teachers did here. It is safe and very diverse so there is lots of opportunity to learn and grow from other cultures. The school is truly here for you and will help you succeed.
