Oak Creek High School Reviews

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.

The classes are okay, depends really on the teacher and the subject that's being taught. Lunch, like any other high school lunch, is pretty normal. The school created a freshmen campus for just the freshmen, so they are just separated from a true high school experience and from all the other grade levels. The freshmen campus is super nice with just nice seats and building. However, compared to the main campus (original building), it's legit dirt compared to freshmen campus. The flooring is completely dirty and usually the conditioner and heater never work during the seasons. There are also times the wifi doesn't work properly. We were suppose to have an auditorium (because at the moment we have a "little theater" which is exactly what it is) and I have a lot of drama friends so it is really bad for them in general. All the school really cares about sports and even though our marching band has won four state champions, our school focuses on football mainly.
I enjoyed my high school experience at Oak Creek High School. The teachers are very friendly and want you to succeed. If you are struggling in a class, you can simply ask for help and teachers will give it to you. Whether it is for 30 minutes after school or during the lunch hour, the teachers there will give students the time they need to review lessons from the day or to help review for a test. They will do what they can to ensure that all students are prepared for an upcoming exam and they will ensure that students are ready for AP exams as well as prepare them for college. The educational opportunities that this school provides are very great and strong within core concepts and are very beneficial to students.
