The teachers are awesome! They are always willing to help you and make time for you. They always do what is best for the students and set them up for the future! Lots of teachers try to connect with students on a personal level and they are all very kind and accepting. It is a nice and friendly environment, especially if a student is struggling with personal things, the teachers are always willing to sit and listen. Everyone is very friendly and there is so much to get involved it, it really makes high school so much fun and so many great memories can be made here!

As a senior at Oswego East High School, I can certainly say nothing negative about this school. Throughout my four years here, I've been introduced to amazing and caring teachers that are ready to lay out their students' path to success. The school also has great diversity that has allowed me to meet new friends from different cultures and religions. Of course I can't talk about Oswego East without mentioning their sports, clubs, and activities! As a member of the girls' basketball team, I can positively say that the coaching is amazing, and the teammates are always welcoming and encouraging. The sports at Oswego East define who the students are, from their football teams to their basketball teams. In addition, Oswego East is home to various clubs and activities that we as students are able to help create. Overall, Oswego East High School has provided me a great experience and I can't wait for my younger siblings to attend this school.
As alumni of Oswego East High School, I am very happy to share my honest opinion of the school.

I think that the school had an outstanding Athletics Department. Another great factor of the school would have to be the teachers. I had very great support from all my teachers. I think that the school did a great job of providing its students with college readiness. I think that the staff was very supportive of seniors struggling to apply for schools, write letters of recommendation, and apply for FAFSA. Overall, the school performed an excellent job of helping both parents and students understand the complicated process of FAFSA.
If I had to find something to critique about the school, it would be its food. I think that the school could really benefit from having a broader variety of different foods.
Overall, the high school had an outstanding Athletics Department, great teachers, and resources, and they did an excellent job of helping students providing for college.
