This is a beautiful school but the way it is run is sad. I watched my daughter be bullied by students, coaches and staff. They sweep things under the rug instead of handling the issues The whole cheer program should be dismantled and recreated under administrators who care about the kids. The coaches really should be investigated. The administration should be watching closely as there have been complaints of coaches making fun of girls weight issues and body image issues. These coaches are a disgrace and really should be let go!

I've attended Mission Oak High School my entire 4 years, and I feel that I have received the correct education and preparation for college. Most of the students here are hard working and strive to further their education at a college or university. It is great that you can walk around campus and see the changes and maturity within students.
Overall, I've had an excellent experience! Lovey faculty, staff, and students.
My experience at Mission Oak High School has been great! I know that one day when I look back on high school, I will have plenty of amazing memories to look back on. Being a Hawk has allowed me to express myself through sports, clubs, classes, organizations and much more. This school also has the best teachers, many of my own I have been able to turn to for advice, guidance, and support through my four years of high school.
