My experience has been favorable. The school has a well rounded curriculum. Oak Creek senior high also has a good variety of after school activities to choose from. If a student is not into sports, they can join a club, band, or get involved with helping other students. The one thing I dislike is the policy on fighting. Any student involved in fighting gets in trouble so if someone picks a fight with another student, that student has to take a beating or get in trouble also! I have seen many people get beat up because they are not allowed to defend themselves, and teachers response time is to long.

The extracurricular activities are abundant, competitive, and diverse. Our marching band was in Disney World for 2016 spring break and at Mardi Gras in 2015. Oak Creek offers all the sports that other schools offer. They also have many clubs for different classes such as languages, and debates. I think our school competes with the best!

The first three years of my high school experience I would do over again. They were awesome! My senior year now, would be a different story. The faculty is just so strict on the students now. Most students don't want to go to school already and how they changed just makes it worse. It seems like the school only cares about how they look to other schools and the state. It feels like they don't really care about the students.
