Onalaska High School Reviews
Onalaska High School is a blue ribbon school and provides a great environment for learning and innovation. I very much enjoy the variety of classes and out of school resources for class help that is available. I would like to see certain things change in the sense of social change. By that I mean that there should be a program for suicidal students, there should be a crackdown on drugs, a change in how mentally challenged students are taught, the repealment of common core standards, and a gun that should be kept in the principals office in case of a school shooter.
The school has a wide variety of extracurrriculat opprotunities. From dancing and singing to football or track. Our school supports and runs a show choir, LGBTQ club, art club, spanish club, FBLA, NHS, football, basketball, volley ball, track, cross country, softball, and any other club/sport imaginable. Each and every club requirers different amount of commitment. Track requires everyday commitment, whereas clubs that are done for fun (art club) don't require as much time so less stress is given to the artist. The most popular clubs are show choir and band which take about half of the student body.
I liked meeting all kinds of new people through different activities offered throughout the school. It's easy to just stick with your regular group of friends, but Onalaska creates a very inviting atmosphere that is encouraging to making new friendships.
