    Extracurriculars: For being such a small school, we actually have many opportunities to become involved and because of the reduced class sizes more people are able to be involved within these groups. Although, most students don't usually take advantage of such great resources, they are available and welcoming to everybody.

    Overall Experience: I absolutely loved Oscoda Area High School. The environment, the people, the opportunities: all wonderful aspects of this school. Growing up going to a small school meant getting to know everyone and getting opportunities not all students have in bigger schools.

    Teachers: All of our teachers get to know each and every one of the students on a personal level. They provide help for anyone and everyone that seeks it. At OHS the staff goes above and beyond to help students get where they need to be
