Desert Oasis High School Reviews

Some things I liked about Desert Oasis High School is the diversity and the dedication our Student Council has. The Student Council program is an extremely dedicated group of students that truly love their school, and even the most uninvolved student couldn't help but smile as they gaze around the school, filled with colorful posters, banners, and streamers that announce information on school dances, club activities, and events. As well as that, the diversity among the student body is one to be marveled at. On a similar note, there really is very few instances of bullying, aggression, and poking fun at students. Though, on the other hand, fights are common, teachers have little control of their classes and make minimal effort to do so, and we severely lack resources in funding science equipment, performing arts, and updated textbooks.

At Desert Oasis, as a student, I have received the support and academic resources to be able to achieve my goals beyond high school. My teachers have always offered me the tools to do my best in their classes, and they've always pushed for greatness and anything and everything close to perfection. My counselors have done their best to supply me with information I needed to figure out how to apply for financial aid and when to start applying. They've also been there for me for my college questions. At my school our performing arts program is top notch, and I've been granted the opportunity to participate in it for all four years of high school. Through the choral program I've learned so many things, not just about how to sing or basic music theory. I've learned what true friendship is, I've learned how to be strong, and most importantly I've learned what leadership is.
I liked some of the people I have met at this school; there are a handful of great teachers too, especially in the English department. Also, the school was very lenient about their rules. However, this had many backlash; there were so many cases of fighting/bullying going on at this school. Also, I feel as though there was not enough education about opportunities for students attending for their future. There was also a handful of teachers/staff that were incompetent and rude to their students.
