Oscoda Area High School Reviews

Although like most schools ours has flaws, overall Oscoda High School is a great place to attend. Most teachers will do their best to helps student, especially if they are truly dedicated to their education. Also, we have many great sports program to be involved in, and also fun clubs!
For being such a small school, we actually have many opportunities to become involved and because of the reduced class sizes more people are able to be involved within these groups. Although, most students don't usually take advantage of such great resources, they are available and welcoming to everybody.
I absolutely loved Oscoda Area High School. The environment, the people, the opportunities: all wonderful aspects of this school. Growing up going to a small school meant getting to know everyone and getting opportunities not all students have in bigger schools.
