Oakmont High School is a school full of amazing programs that allow a variety of areas to focus on and truly grow in subjects that each student loves. I was gravitated towards Oakmont High school because of the AP and IB courses they offer, and truthfully I was not disappointed. I have loved the teachers at this school and how I was lucky enough to have teachers who truly loved what they were teaching, and staff who clearly cared for the students. Oakmont High School has done a fantastic job in adapting to the COVID-19 pandemic in taking into consideration the conditions of each student alike. However, on the campus itself while class sessions were in person, I would have loved to see more clubs and efforts to support the LGBTQ+ community and other oppressed groups brought to light to make all students feel safe and united in such a great school.
Oakmont High School is a fairly good school who take pride in their students academics and overall sports. They provide students with a variety of sports and clubs to offer, and have great academic programs such as their health academy that's prepares students for work as healthcare professionals along with access to the AP and IB programs and classes. The demographics of the school is fairly diverse with many students from different cultural backgrounds along with economic. Being a older school comes with rich traditions and school culture. Despite being an older school it is nicely kept and updated in many of the classrooms. It is a great choice of a school and have many students from different districts and the school has been known to invite high achieving students from other schools to attend there. With such a large group of students, there are always adapting and adding new classrooms and teachers and when applicable, taking them away.
Oakmont has changed me for the better as I continued though my high school years growing my knowledge. This is the outcome of a freindly community of peers and great teachers. Never in my history at Oakmont ran into a teacher who wasn't willing to help if you reached out to them. The clubs at oakmont are very diverse with selection ranging from e-sports, to drama, and even biking club. Everyone I have encountered within school has had an positive impact on me though forming relationships I have grown in many ways social these last 4 years.
This school sucks. Hated every minute of going here. They don't care about the students and nothing about this school felt like a real high school experience.
It was a decent school. I can't really say much about it considering that I started attending the school in the middle of my senior year. The academics were okay but I didn't like how the schedule is structured. it's not suited for AP classes for sure because one might have an AP class in the first semester and not have it the second semester so one would need to prepare on one zone for the AP exam at the end of the year while taking the classes for the second semester. Also the fact that I had to pay to print was a little weird. the lunch food was pretty good. The lunch food was pretty good and my teachers were decent. I really enjoyed the sports there as I myself plate soccer.
It was an alright experience with filled with lots of good moments. Although living in CA there was a lot of problems especially with the air quality.
I really like Oakmont High School because they are very attentive and fun place to be. There are events which makes the school a lot more fun that a school is. There are teachers that just lighten up the classroom using their own experience to create a healthy learning experience. The office also listens to people concerns and helps them in any way that they may require their help. Also the counselors are very nice and empathetic, they really take the time to understand and get you.
Great school if you are in IB classes or part of the Health Academy. These classes have the best teachers. All other classes are taught by teachers who have given up caring about the success of their students. There are problems with kids vaping in the classroom and in school bathrooms. The boys bathroom actually closes between classes due to this. Athletics are dismal. The football and soccer teams were moved to a lower bracket because they were losing so many games.
The IB and Ap programs were very helpful in preparing me for college due to the amount of homework and time management. The teachers were all very dedicated to the success of each of their students as long as they tried to learn the subject. The cross country team was such a fond memory of mine. All the coaches cared about their members and would go out of their way to get their students assistance when injured or if they were dedicated to improving. The school events like dances were subpar in my opinion because they were geared towards scandalous music and didn't show diversity in the music genres. Despite this, they did try to keep an image of community and acceptance of all ethnic origins and sexual preferences. They had a large diversity of clubs from multicultural club, to Robotics club, to LGBTQ+ club. The school is heavily dedicated to communication with students and family members but sometimes students feelings aren't considered (like graduation setting).
My experience at Oakmont has been excellent especially during my injury this past year. As a Junior, I was playing in a Varsity Waterpolo tournament when I was hit in the head. I ended up having a concussion and Post-Concussion Syndrome. This had been my fifth concussion and it was extremely serious. I ended up being out of school for 16 days. This experience was extremely difficult for me since I am academically driven. I am in the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program and I quickly fell behind. However, when I was cleared to return back to school, my counselor Mrs. Prasad and IB Coordinator/IB Biology Teacher Mrs. Geluk, made a plan for me on how to catch up. They both encouraged me through the whole process. From this experience, I learned so much about myself, such as, my ability to overcome adversity and achieve success. Oakmont offers an incredible IB program where students have a drive to learn and grow, and staff want to educate students and guide us in our education.
A lot of the teachers are very involved and helpful to their students. I felt very free to express myself.
I went to Oakmont my freshman year. It was a good school. Good thing are traditions, events, some sports, dances, IB and Health Academy, and other programs. The dance program is great. There are negatives that directly affected me and many other students. Kids from across town (me) had to drive 30 minutes to school because we were zoned for it. Being an underclassmen and keeping friends across town is difficult, and led to some problems socially. School spirit is sub par, food is eh, and to fit the students there are countless portables spread throughout campus, making mobility difficult. Parking is a nightmare. Their sports are fine. There's too much emphasis on the IB program, therefore the AP program isn't as strong as it used to be which limits students like me who'd prefer to take AP over IB.
Most of the teachers are fine and average. There's some notably amazing ones and some that are subpar. The students are usually fine, a lot of them disrespectful which you can't avoid when it comes to high school. Some students shamelessly come to school with the Confederate flag, which isn't odd, just personally makes me feel uncomfortable as a minority. There are 'popular' kids who get away with things both socially and in terms of disciplinary action which aren't really preventable and usually normal. In other words, you can see the privilege. Although, they offer great academic programs. This high school has good things and bad things that even out. Those things are also prominent in many normal high schools.
Pretty average all around school. Oakmont has a reputation to be the high school that is worse than all the other schools in the district, but it's really not that bad. Just compared to other schools like granite bay and woodcreek, it gets a bad rep.
The school is a pretty average in the since that not really happens their. The teacher are nice and do their job pretty decent. The school could be worst.
I personally believe that my school had great opportunities, for example, we have a Health Careers Academy that freshman students can apply and interview for, I am one of these students and I have been in the Academy for almost a year now and it's a great experience, I've gotten to have a huge head start to my interest in the health fields along with amazing opportunities. We also have an awesome engineering program and many great clubs. I would say that the safety, and involvement from parents can be worked on, but overall, it is a great school and I'm very happy I get to attend it.
Its a decent school overall. Food doesn't taste the best so I don't eat much of it. Everything is fine. Sports programs could be better. The school needs to be upgraded. I hope it gets better when I leave. The principal is good. He really cares for the students. Administration is decent. The school has decently taught me college preparation.
