I moved to Oakdale 7 years ago. I have 3 daughters and my two oldest were not so happy about the move, especially my oldest daughter. I took her out of school only 2 months into her freshman year and moved her to Oakdale. Needless to say she was not to happy. Within a couple of months my older daughters were thanking me for moveing them to Oakdale. It was the best decision I ever made. Oakdale has great academics. There teachers, principal and staff are there for you and are very careing. They listen and treat you like part of the family. If you have a child that plays sports then Oakdale is the place to be. Oakdale is very big on there sports, especially there football team. The whole town shows up on Friday nights, so you better get there early or you will have to sit on the visitors side and thats no joke. Oakdale as a community is fantastic. I have never seen a town come together like Oakdale does. There is alot of parent support that makes oakdale schools and this community great....I give Oakdale an A plus.

Oakdale High School provides an outstanding and challenging academic environment for students who wish to excel. I was most impressed by the fact that--even though OHS boasts outstanding football, baseball, and women's softball teams--the first presentation made at the annual Open House for parents was made to promote the school's outstanding Academic Decathlon Team (which has won its section eight years running and finished 2nd in California last year). One more thing: the community really gets behind its school. I was amazed to see that nearly 140 scholarships (most of which are sponsored by local businesses and families) were presented to the Class of 2008--this for a senior class numbering less than 600. Awesome!

Oakdale High is new to us this year. I have to say that Math and English teachers are among the best.

I agree with the june 2005 post ing that Oakdale High school is great in English & social studies, but math & science lacks. Students do not have a edge in these areas as they have to self teach these difficult concepts .

The quality of Oakdale High School is really dependant upon what you are looking for. The teachers range from inept to outstanding, (with the latter most often being comprised of those who teach advanced classes), and, while the science department is something of a joke, the school offers many top-notch extracurriculars. Amongst these are Academic Decathlon, Model U.N, National Art Honor Society, and a number of athletics. In my short experience at Oakdale High School, it seems to me that, as with most things in life, the more a student is willing to put into the programs offered, the more they are going to get out of their experience.

Great School! I had two children attending OHS and both of them enjoyed very much. We moved to another school district 6 months ago and my children hate it. We all wish they could go back to OHS. Great football team!

Oakdale High School is amazing. It offers students choices, not only for basic quality educational purposes but also for life. Moral values are taught and enoucraged, students are supported by administrators and parents alike.

I have had a great many years with experience from the high school. There are many fine teachers who care about the well being of their students. There are also many teachers who arrive at class unprepared. Sadly some of the work is silly. Also, it seems that the teachers keep control by ridicule. While this may be easier than counseling we know the value to society by such actions leads to more problems. We need teachers who are prepared, who care, and want to teach about life. Teachers need to prompt, to encourage, to challenge students. Perhaps then we will have a great school. More clubs, more school activities, more parents involvement. I do not mean to suggest that teachers are to blame. Certainly that rests with parents who either don't care or don't ask questions as well. Another thing, once you know a problem, for example 2 plus 2 = 4 then why do 100 more similar problems? We need to evaluate as we go. And with computers it is easy to make changes that match the students developement. 16 students from my home have attended OHS. Many good experiences. The office staff and couseling staff has been excellent to deal with. They are certainly caring professionals. I have witnessed wonderful people doing a great job. Every school should be so blessed.

I went to O.H.S. The most amazing school spirit that I have ever seen. The football team was by far superior than others. Learning in O.H.S. was a experience in which I will never forget.
