I believe Okemos High School has prepared me well for college. Its academics far outweigh the academics of nearby Lansing School District. I am grateful that my mom had the foresight to enroll me in the Okemos School District rather than in the District where I lived. Most of my teachers have been awesome. I have always felt safe. Everyone for the most part is treated with respect. Parent involvement has never been an issue. We most always have more than enough chaperones for all events necessary. The facilities are mostly up to date and in good working order.
