Oakland Military Institute - College Preparatory Academy Reviews

The military structure ensures that all of it's students and facilities are in constant tip-top condition, molding a well-disciplined young man/ woman. The leadership elements enforce righteous behavior and prepares students for any form of rigor. Leadership courses are available for students to participate in, as well as the ability to climb in rank and position. When a student slacks, the school schedules a meeting with all the student's teachers & military staff to create a success plan for the student. The school is placed in an urban demographic, attracting diverse minorities, which help teach and normalize adolescents of diversity. The school increases it's graduation and college acceptance percentages every year, when I graduated, the rolled-over accumulated percentage was 96%. Overall, a wonderful school, especially for its demographic placement. I attended the school from sixth to twelfth grade, and I took advantage of all the opportunities I listed above.

The military structure at this school definitely makes it unique, however it has fallen from grace from how it was before. Over the years the administration has swapped around with each set of staff implementing their own changes to the school. At one point the school went a mass firing and its coherent structure turned into a jumbled undisciplined mess. Even so, success is still there for those who wish to succeed academically or for those who wish to enhance their leadership ability. A majority of the teachers share a sense of caring however the superintendent seems to confuse a child refusing to learn as the teachers not doing their job. The superintendent believes in giving every student a chance but seems to cater more to the lazy and undisciplined. With the right people behind this school, this institution could shine brighter than any other public school in Oakland.
My name is Jake Swensen, and I am a senior in high school planning to graduate in June of 2018. I have been attending Oakland Military Institute since my 6th-grade year. I have been at OMI witnessing the changes of academic structure, more school support systems, and even new buildings with more resources to help the students learning at OMI. OMI provides spectacular school and extracurricular opportunities to better further our career paths like the Golf program in collaboration with the Sequoia and Claremont Country Clubs. Golf is one of the many extracurriculars activities that OMI provides for the students that include: Many summer club/job opportunities information like the University of Michigan internships, and scholarship opportunities. Staff work to push the student body further in their readiness for college and career paths. I appreciate the staff and school support in preparing me for life which I can say I am ready to handle anything this life throws at me.
