Oak Harbor High School Reviews

One of the things I really liked about OHHS was the cafeteria! It's a large area with a loft (usually for Seniors) and there are several types of food choices available: Asian, Sandwiches, Salads, Burgers, and even food made by students. This school provides lots of AP courses and has (mostly) capable teachers. As most high schools go, many of the clubs are popularity based and not very welcoming. This goes especially for the student council. The things I'd love for them to work on is getting actual history teachers rather than having PE/Sports coaches show videos/documentaries all class. In addition, there are many faculty members (eg. Hall/Lunch monitors) that are high on power and snap at students easily without letting them explain themselves. For example on my first day of school, I opened the door for a student then got yelled at for 5 minutes for helping a class skipper! They didn't listen to me when I said I didn't know.

I had a great experience at OHHS. The community is very diverse and connected. The staff are always kind, helpful, and supportive. The teachers really make an effort to help students succeed. OHHS provides tons of resources and opportunities to participate in sports and clubs. Spirit weeks are always fun too!
I love Oak Harbor HIgh School because the counselors and teachers are so supportive and are there for everyone. The opportunities are great. There are so many clubs and sports to join so, so there is a place for everyone. Our sports teams and choir are very good when it comes to competitions and I am very proud of the coaches and choir/band teachers for creating such amazing teams for competitions. The food in the school's cafeteria is ok, but the school's DECA store has really good food that everyone loves to eat. The counselors there helped me in my college search and have helped me get ready to apply for college with my transition from Skagit Valley College in Running Start to the next college I plan to attend. The school culture is wonderful. Everyone is very joyful in the hallways and the pep assemblies are extraordinary. We also have a parade and tailgate party before the Homecoming football game that is always top tier. The teachers and academics are great for every skill level
