I loved the school spirit of oak mountain! Durning the duration of my time at Oak mountain although I was a new student they made me feel at home. The pep rally’s were so warming and welcoming and some of the other people there were extremely nice and helped me transition into how they do things as far as academics and organizations. Oak Mountain has an abundance of clubs and organizations to join and everyone is so amazing from the staff to the students !

Oak Mountain is a great school! There are so many different opportunities to get involved. We are one of the top schools involving education, we have great academics. Oak Mountain also has a lunch period called soar 60, which is where Tuesday- Friday you get a whole hour for lunch to get help from a teacher, hang out with friends, etc.
I recently moved to Oak Mountain High School this year in March. I had the best transition here. The staff is absolutely amazing, words can’t even describe it. The teachers go out of their way to help you succeed. Something i’m not really used to. Even for new kids, they have a program where the take a day out and they call it “Impact Day” they basically take new students who’ve been there for a short period of time, and also older students who have always went to oak mountain and combine them in the schools gym and have activities to meet and greet people. I met some amazing students from it, who have been really close friends to me. It was one of the best days. Oak Mountain is one of the best schools around who wants to see you succeed in every way you can. So glad we made we move to come here. Hopefully you will do the same with your children! #goom
