    Overall Experience: I have made the greatest friends at this school. My first half of my freshman year was the worst because of bullying, the school tried telling me it was my fault that all of this bullying would occur and the girl who bullied me never received any form of punishment. However, my best friend got me help my second half of freshman year and his friends and him defended me and they made the school really worth it, they graduated my sophomore year though. I've been dating the guy who helped me since I was a sophomore and I am still best friends with all of them. Even if I had the chance to do it all over I think I would still attend the school just for them because they honestly are the best friends I could have ever asked for. I would also attend because the world language teachers are honestly the best. I have had bad experiences with other teachers but the world language teachers don't pick favorites they are at the school all the time and are always willing to help.

    Food: The food service was pretty typical of any high school. Most people brought their own lunches, but there weren't many complaints about cafeteria food.

    Administration & Policies: The staff at Oswego East was always very helpful in guidance situations. When a beloved teacher died my senior year, the staff was immediately supportive for any student who was really hurt and upset about the death.

    Teachers: I loved almost all of my teachers. I was in mostly honor classes so those teachers were always devoted to helping the honor kids really achieve.

    Sports & Fitness: Attending football and basketball games was a huge deal in my high school. Usually upperclassmen were the ones to go and support, but it was a very social environment where a lot of people from school would go and then meet up for dinner afterwards.
