Onalaska High School is one of the best high schools in the area. The offer so many different things and they have something for every student no matter what. The staff there is also one of the best, you can always count of walking down the hall and having at least 3 teachers outside their door saying hi to students and asking how their day is.
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.
