Dr. Moylan as principal was a wonderful experience. He did a fantastic job of making sure there was equality between sports, arts, and education. After experiencing his wonderful personality on the Communication Retreat, it helped me to better understand his stances at this school. He is resilient when it comes to his decisions and that has made a positive impact. Being in the band program, I appreciated how the teachers helped me to advance my skill level and learn so much in such a short time. I advanced from mid-level band to upper-level band with the help of my instructors. Private lessons helped me in learning my instrument better, therefore improving my performance. The teachers are always eager to assist in their students' education and make sure that they are given the help they need to succeed.

From a student's perspective, I loved my OHS experience. The school needed and still needs policy improvement, yes, but as one who was eager to learn and prep for college, Oconomowoc High School was the most supportive environment in the region. OHS boasts countless AP and IB courses for all students, service groups like National Honors Society and German Honors Society, focus on the tech fields through trades courses and the Project Lead the Way program, a thriving theater program earning the school countless Tommy Awards, and expert teachers and staff who are typically willing to help each person succeed to the best of their abilities, not just to the best of their standards.
My experience at Oconomowoc has been an absolute wonderful one. The past four years have opened me up to so many opportunities, academically, socially and athletically. The staff is supportive and encouraging, and the student body is constantly supporting one another. Overall, I can say I never would've wanted to get my high school education anywhere else!
