Oakland High School Reviews
I like the closeness of the teachers with the students. I just wish more funds would go to the music, agriculture, and art programs.
Although peer pressure is easy to avoid, it is everywhere. Tolerance depends from group to group. The real deciding factor at my school depends on the haves and the have-nots. Those who come from wealthier families or families that are involved in the community usually behave better in and out of school than the one's whose families don't participate. The less privaledged students are usually those with attitude, attendance, grade, and drug problems, though sometimes this is not the case. The biggest overall acceptance issue we have at our school is acceptance with all sexual orientations. Most of the students come from religious families (we live in a religious community where the church is involved in almost everything.) Although I doubt a person would be physically or intensly verbally bullied for being homosexual, occasion jabs and shunning might occur. On the bright side, there are always those at this school who are willing to accept someone, despite their background, ethnicity, or sexual orientation.
Teachers that educate in the core classes like math, english, life science, and social studies are superb. I have had these teachers for six years at most and I am going to miss them dearly when I leave. However, there are some teachers, usually those who teach electives, who are good to mediocre. My concern is that there are not enough class options, so therefore not enough teachers to spread out the possibility of diverse classes. High school teachers often teach junior high classes as well, and sometimes even elementary classes. The art teacher and life science teacher are the best examples I can think of. Switching schedules and developing a schedule is difficult because of overlapping classes. A teacher's cirriculum is usually very well put together.
