Overall, most teachers at my school try to help out their students and are active in making sure students know the curriculum. However, instructional time is often forgone for standardized testing such as the PARCC test. It's frustrating for both teachers and students because students miss valuable class time for a test. Generally, teachers are knowledgeable in the topics they teach, if only because they've taught the lesson so often. It should be noted that some teachers do not take interest in their students. I've observed some students needing help from the same teachers, yet the teachers do not try to their fullest to help their students. Some teachers give off the feeling of being burned out. It's frustrating for students, who only have four years of high school, to be taught by someone who teaches in a disinterested style and refuses to give further help. Teachers grade consistency and very fairly. Most teachers want to help their students, and try to peak the student's interest. Oswego High School is generally a very nice school.
