Oak Grove High School Reviews

Moving to San Jose several years ago, I was anxious to attend high school. Knowing it was not like how it was displayed in movies, I questioned how I would personally fit into such environment. The funny thing is, I remember my first day of high school, as a freshmen, like it was just yesterday. To my astonishment, I found myself adjusting quite comfortably into this new community. Three years later, I am writing this experience of mine as a junior! Through my years at Oak Grove, I realize that I needed that extra "push" and motivation for me to participate in all the school offers. My high school had various clubs and programs of student involvement, allowing them to engage with real-life situations they can further apply to their future life. I find that Oak Grove has amazing opportunities for diverse students to strive in their academics and build their identity, through their passions and understandings. Once an eagle, always an eagle. Go eagles, Class of 2021!

My experience at Oak Grove High School was great! I was involved with the marching band and color guard, and made many friends. I liked the school because it was a comfortable environment. My teachers were always helpful, and I rarely felt any danger. When there's drama or fights, the staff does a really good job of stopping it and makes sure it doesn't happen again. I just wished that we had more freedom because they are very strict with leaving school. For example, senior ditch day is supposed to be fun and memorable for the seniors. However, we can lose the opportunity of other fun senior activities at the end of the year if we decide to ditch, and our absence won't be excused. Overall, I learned a lot at this school and had a good experience.
OGHS is a great school to participate in! Each school has its perks and downsides, but OGHS reminds ourselves that community is the most important thing there.
