I am so thankful and blessed that I attend Oak Grove High School. I have been going to Oak Grove since Kindergarten, and i am extremely grateful. The community is amazing, and the staff at the high school is so caring. The school really lets the children get involved in many activities and clubs. The teachers are amazing. They push us to do our very best, but they are willing to help if we cannot understand the material. Oak Grove is an amazing school, and I cannot wait to see what the future holds for them. I am proud to be an Oak Grove Tiger!

Oak Grove High School provides me with many opportunities to further my college career which is something I really like about my school. Oak Grove use to lack school spirit before we got a new principal in the last recent years who is trying her best to raise our school spirit once again. I feel loved by all my teachers and know that each one of them care for me. I love how small my school is because I feel as if i know each and every person and have created special life-time bonds. Just simple things I think that would make Oak Grove a better place is just updating the building and adding a few more modern things to our school. This would bring in more students, and make students more excited to come to school each day. Overall, I am very proud to be an Oak Grove Tiger and will forever cheer the red and white.
I have went to Oak Grove High School since kindergarten. It’s been my home. I’ve made so many friends the past 13 years, along with amazing memories. Oak Grove is where I’ve learned everything about life. How to read, write, play music, play sports, fall in love, getting my heart broken, having friends who will always have my back, how to stand up to bullies, care for my peers, and knowing not to look back but to look forward because that’s where my future is. Yeah, I may have had some boring classes or the school food wasn’t the best but none of that matters, what matters is that I was able to learn and grow with the people I’ve been with since day one.
