    Extracurriculars: Whatever you're looking for, we've got it. On the slight chance that we don't have it, it's easy for students to make it happen. We literally have over 100 clubs and if you check out our electives we've got a huge variety of visual arts, performing arts, science classes, sports, and some great languages as well. Not to mention the classes that are their own categories like wood shop, peer counseling, as well as ASB and Renaissance.

    Overall Experience: The school itself is absolutely incredible. The resources are endless, teachers are generally pretty good, the campus is huge and beautiful, and there are plenty of amazing organizations and events that students can be a part of. Pages on this survey talked about the student body and parent involvement so let me just say that it is completely dependent on which students and parents you are dealing with. Are there amazing students with kind parents who help support booster programs and clubs? Absolutely. Are there also students who are snobbish and parents who believe that there child is the school's number one priority and all grading and disciplinary policies should be changed to suit their needs? Yepp. Don't believe everything you see on the media about us either. Honestly, it's one of the nicest schools that my family has ever seen. My siblings and I went to much worse schools with a lot bigger problems, but because this school is in a better area, all of its problems are thrown on the news. Now, I'm not saying we don't experience some issues here (like every public school in America, ever), but those problems are definitely occasional events which don't reflect the day to day safety or environment of the school.

    Teachers: There are so many absolutely incredible teachers that work at Osos and I would definitely give it a 5 star rating if it weren't for the few other teachers who are the absolute worst. I took mostly AP classes and I can say that each year I probably had 3 pretty good and cool teachers, 1 awful teacher, and 2 amazing teachers. Overall, though, it's an amazing faculty. Speaking as someone who came from an underprivileged area before Osos, it's the best.
