The best part of attending Okaw Valley was, hands-down, the interaction with the staff. The teachers and administration never failed to make you feel like you were cared for, or that help was available whenever you should need it.

I moved to Okaw Valley High School going into my Junior year of high school. Okaw Valley High School has helped me receive some of the best experiences encouraging fun, future plans, career opportunities, and a community oriented family. Mr. Matthew Shoaff, the principal here at Okaw Valley, is the best principal around in this area. He not only advises us and encourages ALL of his students to get their work done, but he actually helps students achieve their tasks as well. Mr. Shoaff truly cares for his staff member, students, and his community here in Bethany, IL.
The staff at my school work with what they are given and with what they have patience for. Our school is not funded as much as other schools so we are not completely updated in technology and our students do not have the best of respect for the teachers and that makes them irritable sometimes and other times they are approachable and easy to talk to. I love the teachers here but they do have their faults and some allow students to control the classroom instead of themselves which is bad in some occasions. Punishment is not gave out as much as it should be as well so the school itself is pretty lax.
