Oliver Ames High School Reviews
My experience at OA has shown me that teachers are very passionate about teaching and care very deeply about their work. Many students are excited to see more diversity. Most students care a lot about their academics and sports and music. Recently, the music department was depleted and I think that administration should give music the same amount of importance as they do sports. Our music teachers are very dedicated. Most sports coaches care very deeply about their teams. All teachers are available after school for extra help. Some classes are pretty difficult but I've learned a lot in every class that I have taken. Guidance provides an adequate amount of resources but I recommend getting outside help for more in depth help with college counseling and or familial or personal issues. There are different clubs that cater all sorts of students. We are a pretty cliquey school with many students but administration provides many fun events to bring classes together.
Compared to other schools,Oliver Ames had academics, food, staff, and sports were all typical of that of any other high school. However, what sets Oliver Ames apart is the culture there.Competition between students was not only the norm but encouraged. For example, a student's value was determined by their grades.On report card day, students were pressured by their peers to reveal their grades, and there was nothing the staff did to stop this.The school did nothing to build their students up in any way other than praising for good grades.Now do not get me wrong, high scoring grades should be acknowledged and appreciated.However, the school created an environment where your GPA determined your worth as a person.I believe schools need to be better than this.Students should be encouraged to pursue hobbies in the arts,encouraged that they can find value besides their score on a chemistry test.There needs to be changed, and all I can hope is the next generation does future students better.
It is a very close knit school and has a sort of culture that makes you enjoy coming to school ! The amount of clubs and opportunities that are readily available to the students is shocking, there are so many clubs to chose from and they are all lead by caring teachers or individuals. There is never a dull day at Oliver Ames High school!
