Okemos High School is a very preppy and rigorous school, which is a struggle to keep up with and maintain good grades. The school is full of brilliant children from multiple different ethnicities, who are very self motivated. While OHS can be a challenge, it is an excellent preparation for college, and many of the teachers are extremely qualified, wonderful and open minded people. Okemos high school has very nice facilities and does an amazing job of funding the arts, which one cannot say for a lot of schools.

There were some great teachers and some very controlling teachers. For the most part, the students were friendly. I never had the problem of the school not having classes for practical adult life. There are a lot of cliques in this school, so making friends can be a bit difficult. The math teachers and literature teachers tended to be subpar, with few exceptions. The history teachers were top-notch, though.
This school has basically every sport that you want to play and it's an amazing program to be apart of, it's like a family. They have a ton of different clubs where everyone can fit in! It's great!
