Not an enjoyable environment for students . Poor role modeling and mentoring. Lack of respect and kindness.

I'm perplexed by most of the ratings here. This is truly an average school with little funding. It has the same problems as other "average" schools. However, if you are a good student and thrive to learn in preparation for life after high school then you "the student" must do it, just like in any other school. Don' t blame schools for where your life ended up.

This school is a mess. I would not recommend any parent sending their kid to this school. The administration is horrible.

I am an alumni of Omak High School with the class of 2005. As of my graduation, there was little support for academia within the school. Aside from a few outstanding teachers, many cared more about their sports players' ability to try out for football than their bright students' need to be intellectually challenged. The problem also persists in the minds of the students themselves. The student body simply does not support students seeking a good education. Those who have a passion for learning will not find sustenance in Omak High School.

Omak High School does a major disservice to any student who aspires beyond a blue-collar, vocational career. The administration is a mess and will specifically put problems they should be dealing with on leadership students' shoulders. My daughter has begged to be transfered to a new school, as she aspires to take AP courses and have more competitive opportunities in general. She is a highly motivated student, top of her class, highly involved in extracurriculars, and cannot stand her high school. The classes she takes have focused more on preparing her for the remedial WASL test, and have not focused enough on actual college entrance exam preparation, such as the SAT and ACT. Since she is now almost graduated, it's too late to switch, but if we had the opportunity to do it all over again, she would not have wasted her high school years at Omak High School.

Omak High School has excellent academic programs and extracurricular activities. The School and students are well supported by the community and the staff provide excellent instruction for the students. The administration of the building put students first and have developed quality relationships with students. Omak High School is an excellent school.
