Oak Creek High School Reviews
Oak Creek High School is great because of all the possibilities. I loved all the possible classes to take. There were probably over a hundred classes to take: business classes, acting classes, music classes, art classes, and language classes. The school is big and with that there is so much diversity here within the student body which I love to observe. One thing I would change about Oak Creek High School is its respect for the arts. We have no school auditorium but instead a Little Theater that seats less than 150 people. Fortunately, a referendum recently passed which allows the construction for a PAC at our school which I am excited for. Then the next thing I would change about my school is the lunch food because it is flavorless, no salt, no pepper, not even cooked thoroughly. The school completely revise the entire lunch program so it doesn't end up destroying my taste buds. Thank You! :)
Oak Creek High School is staffed with teachers and staff who take initiative in their student's education and overall wellbeing. There's a plethora of classes to peak all kind of interests and to invest in all kinds of futures. However with the outstanding qualities come the shortcomings. The district is not very invested in the arts or theater program, but remains focused on sports and other investments that continuously neglect the arts. The budget planner of this school seemed to cut corners in departments that they deemed unworthy, while somehow making sure other, more favorable areas on their own behalf thrived, which was noticeably disappointing to a large population of the students, including myself, who take interest in theater, drama, and the arts.
Through these past four years of high school I’ve gotten the opportunity to meet many new peers and experience the chance to join a variety of different clubs. My freshmen year was when I discovered a passion for theater and a new-found respect for all of the talented, aspiring artists that make up the student body. I now am one of the senior captains on the team as well as a leader throughout the school with other clubs I’ve also been able to be apart of such as the District Leadership Team, National Honor Society and HOSA: future health professionals. I can honestly say I couldn’t have done any of this without the opportunities that this school has had to offer along with the unconditional support from not only my peers but faculty as well.
