    Overall Experience: So far my experience at Oakcrest High School has been great! We may not have the best looking school but we do in fact have the best people. Everyone is so welcoming and caring for one another. You're not afraid to ask for help when needed. But my favorite part is band! Oakcrest by far has the best band program I could ask for. Jazz band, marching band, concert band, honor band, etc.. You have so many options to find your strengths and weaknesses. I do them all! The band program is wonderful, but the students and teachers I share it with are even better. Joining band is like joining one big musical family. You feel welcomed and loved. We go out of our way to help one another. Directors will help you even in their own time, just to help you better yourself. We work together and we accomplish great things as a whole. This is why I love Oakcrest High School. I'm proud to be a falcon.

    Extracurriculars: Oakcrest High School has the best set of extracurriculars in my opinion. But i must say, the best part is, the amazing people and teachers they are full with and led by. Oakcrest has outstanding school spirit no matter whats going on. we may not have much funding, but we do a phenomenal job with what we have. Oakcrest deserves more attention and funding, it seems as though they don't want to give us any because we are the oldest school in our district. The commitment to all spots and activities is outstanding. And because we have such committed, dedicated students, we have amazing records, like our Boys Track Team that has been undefeated and the C.A.L champions for five years straight.
