Great Oak High School Reviews

Based on my experience and being a student who graduated from Great Oak in 2015 I have to say my experience was enjoyable.

Along with the community and the students there, the school tries its best to instill school spirit. Whether it be through events, rally’s, or dances. Excitement and spirit always comes along with this school.

As for the teachers, they try their best to provide to students needs. Communication with them isn’t much of a problem and its fun when you get to know your teacher more! If anything, the teacher cares for their class.

As for the students, it is BIG and there is diversity. There are plenty of opportunities to meet new people and make friends.

Overall, I think Great Oak is a good school to enroll in if parents are debating which one to put their children in the future.

Great Oak High School is a very large school that offers many opportunities to its students. I value my time that I spent there. I believe that I learned a lot from the courses I took and the faculty that prepared me well for college. The school has a lot of spirit and students, it can even be overwhelming at times. If I could change anything, I might have taken better advantage of the AP courses offered. Any student would be privileged and proud to be a part of the wolf pack!
I just LOVE the spirit at Great Oak High School! It's an outstanding school with an abundance of clubs, activities, and sports that add to the quality of the school. On spirit days, everyone dresses up. If you're not dressing up on a spirit day, people look at you funny, thinking, "What's up with that kid". One time our football team we're playing a game at their competitor's stadium and our side had twice the amount of people they had. Also every one is very smart there. Many are involved in the IB program and are in AP classes. There's a level of respect everyone has in our school that no school really has. There's almost never fights, and we always have a DJ during football games, and all of us are jumping around more than the cheerleaders are. My school is, in my opinion, the best school in the country
