I think that Oxford High School gave me an amazing education that will help me continue my education in college. The teachers put in 100% and are always helpful and understanding of the students. The preparatory for college will take me a long way in my upcoming college courses. Our administrators, parents, teachers, and counselors did a fantastic job of directing our student population and helping them prepare for college. Oxford's education system is one-on-one and need-based which is why I had the best learning experience at this district rather than any other.

OHS is always changing; for the most part, it's positive change. In my years in high school, we've gotten school-wide computers for each student, changed the lunch and class schedule more times than I can count, and lived through multiple different administrators. At OHS, teachers really care about their students, and there are many social, academic, athletic, and more clubs and activities available for students. Only issue for me- counselors and administrators aren't the best with focusing on the needs of individual students and their individual futures (advocating for different colleges or helping with career choices in the future).
Oxford High School looks amazing on paper. Academically, their scores are well-rounded and relatively high. This comes at a price though. They push their students to start taking High School credits at a young age. These students take so many classes, a lot of them not electives, that they can graduate a year or two early without having to re-arrange their schedule purposely. Oxford High School has such a high mental illness rate that is ignored by the administration. Oxford wants a high ranking, and that is what their decisions are based on. They are not based on students and their life.
