    Overall Experience: While I was at Oak Creek High School I really enjoyed all the faculty. I got close with many teachers and they made most of my classes extremely enjoyable. I did not like all of the students that were able to walk the halls when they should have been in class. The administrative staff seemed incredibly corrupt as well.

    Overall Experience: I have always felt at home at this school due to all of the activities that it offers. The teachers provided are both hard working and eager to see their students strive while being very comforting. They want best for their students.

    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.
