Oakcrest High School Reviews

Oakcrest high school has been a home to all different types of students. We have seen it change throughout our four year journey. From having no air, to watching most of our staff get fired, it has been a challenge for some of us. But one thing we have always had is each other. Oakcrest is like a family. Our town gives Oakcrest a ad reputation so many graduating eighth graders choose not to come here. Which is disappointing to see every year the class size getting smaller. Given this, the current teachers are always there for anyone in need. None of them will ever turn you away, they will always use all of their possible resources. The teachers are definitely one of the greater parts of Oakcrest high school. The lunch could be a bit better, but I am pretty sure that is the majority of high schools.

Oakcrest High School has various clubs and different activities anyone can participate in.My first year of Oakcrest has been good. The staff and some students were helpful. There are so many different types of people from different backgrounds. However, everyone comes together whenever there is a football game or pep rally. The school spirit is great and admirable.Then the counselors are attentive and try help their students. Overall the school has the pretty good environment. Eventhough its not the biggest school in the district it has a great education system and programs
Oakcrest has been my home for the past 3 years and I am thrilled to continue my senior year. The characteristic I love most about the school is the fact that there are no clique´s, no exclusion, and no one is left behind. The love between the students is a type of love that I haven´t seen anywhere else. This is all thanks to the staff for creating a positive environment, the numerous sports and activites offered to bring us together, and of course, the students who are the ones who create this big, happy, family.
