Desert Oasis High School Reviews

Going to Desert Oasis High School was a very divisive experience. The social atmosphere was very “clicky” and non-inclusive of those that didn’t fit into a specific category. Most of my experience, I dreaded to go to school and simply went for the educational benefit rather than to socialize. Many of the teachers were prejudice to minority students and those that were not highly exceeding. Favoritism among all of my teachers was clearly evident, even within faculty members. However, despite the social aspects of the schools, many improvements to the overall organization and security of the school increased over the course of my four year experience. I had three different principles during my time, which decreased consistency for many students such as myself. Rules were constantly changing, and new implementations came every year. Of course, this must occur for progress and improvements to be made. Nonetheless, I am still grateful for the four years that I was there.

Attending Desert Oasis High School was a great experience for me. I learned a lot from other students and teachers while I was there. I had many ups and downs but everything worked out in the end. During my time there, I met some of the most amazing people and I still talk to many of them to this day. I will never forget going to school there.
It's a good school since you can graduate earlier than usual you do need to be sixteen at least but overall a great school. I enjoyed it since it was a small campus , and you got out earlier than usual.
