I attend oakland high school and I am a freshman I get a great education there but the teachers are very impersonable and do not care about the students grade...its a good school but not the greatest teachers.
Oakland High School is one of the best schools in my book! I am a former student of Oakland. The staff and teachers made my high school experience a memorable one. They also prepared me for what was to come after high school. Most of them don't treat you like teenagers but like people. They understand the needs of teens. I would recommend Oakland to anyone who asked not only for their kindness but for the security of knowing there is always someone there willing to help.
Oakland was an excellent school to prepare students for the real world. The teachers are outstanding and want students to grow. There are many areas for students to be involved both academically and socially--both are great for student growth. The teachers take their jobs seriously and encourage students to do their best in preparation for college. The school is exceptional. I would be proud to send my children to Oakland!
I was a former student at Oakland and heres what I have to say about the school. Overall the school is o.k but yet while in school I had some of the greatest roll models I have ever had in my life so I would like to take a second and names some of the best teachers I think that are at oakland Mr.Benefeild he was always laid back and willing to talk to you about anything, Mr.Rohling that man truely cares about every kid that comes in his class and never left anyone behind unless they were just 100% unwilling, and last but not least Mr.Picklesimer he always told me about the real world and prepared me for it more than anyone.
This is an excellent high school with a dedicated group of teachers and administrators. Loads of high quality extra curicular activities and very good sports programs. High percentage of merit scholars, scholarship recipients, and even several baseball players drafted directly from high school team. Routinely sends students to the service academies. I don't understand the other parents comment about petty rules. All rules my sons encountered were definitely grounded in safety and good order. We were proud as parents with our association and experiences at Oakland High School.
Oakland is an awesome school! There are many programs for the students to join and get involved in and they also have many wonderful teachers and I feel very safe sending my child there every day! Keep up the great work Oakland High!
...just another Rutherford County school where 'authorities' are hung up on petty rules and cultural conformity. individualism and independent thinking discouraged ... molding minds for the corporate age.
