    Administration & Policies: The principal and vice principals are always hanging in the rotunda (the area that connects the academic wings) and really try to make themselves available to talk whenever you need. They make a habit of following up with you on previous inquiries, and seem genuinely interested in the goings-on of their student body. The office staff is friendly and helpful, and the guidance counselors are generally available (getting time with them can be difficult at the start of each semester when they are very busy working on kids schedules). There are strict anti-bullying policies, but the dress code is rather relaxed.

    Extracurriculars: There are lots of extracurricular opportunities including music groups (pep band, marching band, acapella group). Some other extracurriculars include a charter of Kiwanis Key Club for community service, a Mock Trial team, and an Academic Challenge squad. There is a Youth Initial Team that tries to engage the student body in productive activities (they host picnics, ice-breakers, etc). There is a christian religious group (CREW) that is closely tied to the the Oxford Bible Fellowship, a local church. There are many sports teams offered including Track, Swimming, Cross Country, Tennis, Wrestling, Volleyball, Ice Hockey, Lacrosse, Field Hockey, Football, and a few others. Administration is supporting of the organizations, but some do not gain to funding they need to flourish.

    Health & Safety: Safe school with no gangs or organized violence. There is a fight every month or so, but they are broken up very quickly. The school has locked doors and the only way into the building requires walking through the front office (the door of which must be manually unlocked by an administrator). There is a police officer on staff at all times, but he very rarely has to enforce anything.

    Sports & Fitness: A brand new fitness facility with new equipment allows athletes to work out safely with very advanced machines. The football team has been on a losing streak but is climbing its way back to competitiveness, gaining a better record every season. Strength training classes every period allow students to work out during the school day, and the strength training coaches are great at accommodating multiple sports. The swim, golf, cross country, and volleyball teams consistently win their league meets. The men's swim team placed 6th in the state of Ohio (division II). Most students are involved in a sport and there is a large amount of athletes that are great students.

    Student Culture & Diversity: Not much ethnic/racial diversity. Peer pressure and bullying is not very prevalent. There are not strongly formed cliques, but there is a somewhat-strong divide between "preppy" professors kids and the other students. Students are involved in a wide variety of clubs, sports teams and music groups, and there is generally a good amount of things to do after class on any given day (ultimate frisbee games on the football field, an open gym for exercising, study sessions, etc).
