Oak Creek High School Reviews

My experience has been favorable. The school has a well rounded curriculum. Oak Creek senior high also has a good variety of after school activities to choose from. If a student is not into sports, they can join a club, band, or get involved with helping other students. The one thing I dislike is the policy on fighting. Any student involved in fighting gets in trouble so if someone picks a fight with another student, that student has to take a beating or get in trouble also! I have seen many people get beat up because they are not allowed to defend themselves, and teachers response time is to long.
Review Oak Creek High School
Oak Creek High School gave me a variety amounts of opportunity to make memories that will last a life time. It has been an adventurous and stressful ride these past 4 years as a student here, but I wouldn't have traded a moment for the world. I have made so many relationships that have impacted me and the person I have become. I truly am grateful for all the people who have pushed me for success. Teachers, friends, staff, and of course my parents have made my whole high school experience unforgettable. I have been so fortunate to go to a school that offers me so many possiblities of a bright future. Oak Creek has taught me the importance of responsibility, integrity, charisma, and most of all acceptance. I plan to take these characteristics to college and my future life along with my future career. Oak Creek is expectional. It's my home. I'm enternally thankful I have had the chance to experience what it feels like to be an Oak Creek Knight.
The extracurricular activities are abundant, competitive, and diverse. Our marching band was in Disney World for 2016 spring break and at Mardi Gras in 2015. Oak Creek offers all the sports that other schools offer. They also have many clubs for different classes such as languages, and debates. I think our school competes with the best!
