Oakton High School Reviews

I’m currently a sophomore at Oakton High School. A few teachers I've had over the past two years have really stood out and helped me to become a better student and person. The school is currently undergoing a 5 year renovation that should be done in 2022-2023, so we are getting new parts of the building every so often. We just got a new cafeteria that is very nice and they are currently working on the math/science halls. Our sports teams are very good and our football team, which hasn’t had the best luck these past few years, is finally working on getting back to how they used to be. If you’re bored at the school then that’s your fault. There are SO MANY sports teams and clubs you can join!! I love going to Oakton High School but sometimes there is just so much stress, but you’ll find that in any FCPS school. If you’re moving to this area I highly recommend finding a house in the Oakton High School area. You won’t regret it.

I enjoy the diversity and the friendly administrative staff at Oakton, but it also has an unbreakable culture for overloading on APs, therefore, there is always high demands set on entering students by the atmosphere at the school. Everything else at the school is quite mundane and nothing out of the ordinary; bad school food, good and bad teachers, ever-changing restroom and retake policies etc. Overall, Oakton's academics seem to have an immense focus on business education, thus there are many options available for business classes. But the school culture taken into a complete perspective is creative and very realistic; thoroughly prepares students for college and work.
I will forever be grateful for the care and passion of Oakton High School teachers and administrators. I had to learn how to defend my ideas which made me produce work that I took pride in. I was occasionally frustrated with the students who refused to embrace the growth mindset philosophy and simply wanted to get a grade with as little effort as possible, my engagement and willingness to partake in those opportunities fostered dedication and passions for things I otherwise would have never discovered. My hard work was recognized and my laziness was called out. The expectations of the caring staff pushed me to be my best, in more ways than simply academic.
