Oelwein High School Reviews
The Oelwein High School has allowed for many great opportunities for its students, adding new programs not only in sports, but academically as well. The majority of students will be able to find classes to fit their needs, not only high school credit, but also college credit classes offered through the NICC RAMS center, where students from surrounding districts also attend with Oelwein students, with several Oelwein teachers being the professors for the classes allowing for easy communication. Even though our sports teams are not the best, the fans and support for the events has continued to rise as the programs begin to become better. The school allows a lot of freedoms to its students, such as open campus to seniors, coffee shop, different clubs and activities, and study tables.
My experience with Oelwein High School has been great! The staff truly does care about the students and they believe the students have high potential. The teachers and staff expect a lot from us because they know we can achieve great things in our futures. Also the school spirit at Oelwein is awesome. We support all our athletics with school spirit and also just being there for them. There is honestly nothing I would really want to be changed at Oelwein High School because my experience has been the best. I am proud to say that I went to school at Oelwein.
Average school. Best aspect of the school is the safety students feel. Doors are locked in the morning and visitors must be buzzed in the building. Secretaries are able to view the face and speak to visitors before unlocking the door to the school.
