Oakland Charter High School Reviews

I like the teachers and the staffs. Teachers and school staffs are willing to support and help the students as much as possible. They often stay after school to help the students, who need their help on their studies or other problems. They are willing to talk to the students if they are facing any challenge, and they try to encourage them to cheer up, when they are depressed or stressed. There is teachers that buy resources from their own money to make the lessons and classes meaningful and understandable to their students. Although the school is not very wealthy, the school tries their best to support the students in their activities and provides as many resources as it can to make the events successfully. The only thing that I would like to change is the diversity of the school. Most of the students are Chinese and Latinos, but there are very small amount of Vietnamese, Korean, Arabic, and other ethnicities.

The teachers at Oakland Charter High School are strongly dedicated to ensure full mastery under their associated subjects. Teachers genuinely care about their students. Teachers give their undivided attention to ensure success for students. I personally have felt this about the teachers here. Obviously, everything is perfect in the sense that teachers will sometimes fail to convey subject material to students but they won't give up on us. In my experience with the school environment , has always been safe. The school does its best in helping students to engage , build relationships, and preparing us beyond college.
Oakland Charter High School is in my opinion, an average school. The school does have it's advantages and disadvantages. Many advantages range from having diverse student, many ranges of class to select, and a wide campus. Students at the school are positive and hardworking, but I feel as though we lack school spirit or unity. If I could change this school, then I would wish there would be school trips which could inspire students to learn about new careers and as well a better support system for our students. Lockers would also be nice for students to put their books or other supplies.
