    Teachers: At Oak Creek High School the teachers can be the best part of my day and they can be quite a disappointment in my day, it truly depends on the teacher. Only a couple of teachers I have had through the years make me not want to go to their class, but for the most part i enjoy going to most of my classes because all of the teachers are very knowledgeable in their class. Also, after school almost all of the teachers are available every day to make sure their students are able to do well in their classes.

    Extracurriculars: At Oak Creek High School there are plenty of opportunities to get involved with activities after school and even during the summer. One of my favorites was playing in the band because you get to experience so much and learn important things like time management and respect. I hope in the future more people get to join band and things such as art, choir, or drama or a combination of all of those things because the people that get involved with them have a lot of fun.

    Extracurriculars: The Multicultural Club is one of the most successful clubs that Oak Creek has to offer. It is a club where all students of different ethnicities join together and accompany each other while volunteering. We have weekly meetings on volunteer opportunities and preparation days for our annual Diversity Day show. This club is not just a bunch of students doing volunteer work for service hours. We are something bigger, a family. Our goal is to unite the students of our school to look at one another as equals.

    Food: The choices are sometimes alright but there is a chef that comes in a makes food everyday for all four grades, but the timing is alright but favors the older kids.
