On Teachers: The teachers at Oswego are very friendly and knowledgeable. Of course there are going to be teachers that aren't the best, but they all do there job. I am particularly fascinated by the math department because they are some smart people!! However, some teacher need to do a better job on controlling their classrooms.

On Extracurriculars: There are plenty of opportunities to get involved at the school including sports, student council, Panther TV, etc. If you choose a club or a sport you enjoy, the level of commitment won't be bad at all. Of course, football and basketball are the most popular extra-curricular activities.

On Teachers: Overall I believe the teachers are great because some can be very helpful throughout the school year. Also, many are willing to stay after school or come before school to give extra help.
