Most of the people here at Oswego East are loyal and compassionate towards others. Everyone seems to get their work done on time while at the same time having fun.

If I could go back in time, I would attend Oswego high school 2009-2012. They were the best years of my life. Some of my favorite memories chime from the late night football games and hanging out with the teachers and friends. Just having the whole stadium packed and usually have amazing turn outs, not to mention Oswego usually won all the home football games. The club's that the school offered was amazing too. Constantly making new friends and creating new memories. What makes Oswego high school so unique is how largely the community is so involved with the school, whether it be school events, to tragedies, the school would always find a way to help give back to the giving community.
