My teachers here have all been helpful and very nice, while my counselor has been fantastic. My teachers are educational and are truly working their job for the students, and love what they do. If you're experiencing a problem with any of them, simply talking to the teacher themselves about the trouble your having usually solves the issue quickly and efficiently, without it getting blown out of control. Overall, I do not have bullying issues or encounters with drugs at the school, and my peers are quite nice.

Throughout my four years at Royal Oak High School, I was happy about all the events, clubs, and sports offered here. The classes were hands on which helped my learning style and all the teachers provide a good learning environment. I’m happy to say that I’m graduating as a Royal Oak Raven!
I really loved going here! There were so many opportunities to learn! There were a lot of after school activities, and there are a lot of AP courses offered.
