Im currently a sophmore at ohs and id say its all right theres alot of clubs and stuff you can do to be a part of the system. The teachers are nice and you can always find some sort of help but the school is way to controling with soon to have random drug testing eleagable for ANY kind of a club activity or a parking pass (so every on except uninvolved freshman) which seems stupid to me beacuse i belive they shouldent have the right to do that beause its school not our parents, even though were minors please respect were human we should be aloud some privacy. And now due to allergies they removed vending machines, band all peanut butter products from EVERY CLASS ROOM and all the cafaterias and in certen places you cant have seafood, peas, oranges or plumbs so soon we probly wont be able to have food at all. And if you try to get help or want to have a reasonable conversation with a some sort principal good luck beause you wont get far beause they seem to have trubble listing/ reasoning to a student unless a parent comes into action then they listen but before you come here please think is this the cultural establishment you or your kid would like be a part of?

I'm a senior at oconomowoc high about to graduate soon. This school has many things to offer, and has a new fieldhouse and arts center. Basketball games were fun to watch. I can relate to many teachers and many are easy to work with. However, the athletics program isn't the best but is getting better I feel. Any student would fit in well here.

I am a freshman at OHS. OHS has great extraciricular activities, sure. But when it comes to acedemics, don't come to this school! The teachers pick favorites and don't care that much about what you're learning. I struggle in some classes because my teachers barely help me and I dont get any work done. There are tons of kids here that do drugs, and there are many bullies, too. OHS is also too focused on sports. This is not the best school. I suggest not sending your kids here.

I'm a freshman at ohs. And ohs isn't that bad of a school, everything here is pretty good drama is an issue but that's an issue at every school. There are over 70 clubs in the school and almost everyone is in a club I'm not cause I decided to focus on my grades. The classes are pretty good it only depends on the ones you take. The teachers of course are their to teach you but you can grow very close to them and actually have real conversations with them. Oh the freshman here aren't so bad either.

I am a 10th grader at OHS and I believe the school is very good on many levels. To say it only is concerned about sports is completely unfair. Yes, I am in sports, but there are so many other things out there. For example, we just put in an outstanding theatre. Our theater program is fantastic and sells out all the time. Also, robotics wins their competitions, chess club I hear is very good, and plenty of student organizations such as DECA, NHS, and many more add to the school. There is so much to do at any high school, people just need to stop complaining and find something for them. And every school is going to have its groups of people. It's natural, not everyone likes the same thing. So all this about how clicks are so bad is rediculous. Thats at every school. And schools.need.to.be.strict.in.order.to.be.run.effectively.

I am currently a sophmore and I believe the highschool is a good school in all, but we have some strict teachers. Some teachers grade us like were in honors classes when we're really just in standard. Also some teachers pick their favorites in class and it changes their grading point of view. It tick me off because if your not a favorite then you would get worse grades than other teachers. There are many extra-curricular activities, just try one you think sounds cool. The athletics are so competitive now people are trying sports they have never played before and are surpassing the kids who have played and its not fair. I believe our school needs to change.

I am a freshman here at OHS and personally this school is almost trying too hard. They seem to be striving for perfection in every possiable way. Plus alot of students aren't nice to their classmates or the teachers. Also, they havegotten rid of some really cool classes and they are becoming more stict as the time passes. I have just come into this school, and I am already looking into other schools and wanting to transfer. If I were you, I wouldn't send your kids here.

I am a junior at this high school, and personally i really like it here. Sure there are clicks, but what school doesn't have clicks? As far as extracurricular activities, we hav an excellent drama club who is going to germany because of their great reputation. The school just put in a new large gym and a very extravagant new theater that seats 750 people! saying that ohs focuses on sports is an unfair judgement because there is also math club, chess club, drama club, color gaurd, and many other non-athletic activities. People who say that their r no extracurricular activities are just people who are too afraid to try one. The school is also planning on making a club where teachers and students compete against each other in athletic competitions. As said before, the teachers are very good. But the school is sometimes very strict.

I am i freshman and i am concerting on going to a different school because they teachers are nice and all but they school dosent come togather. They care to much about sports and if u arent in one then o-well, your nothing. Also the students, you only stay in your 'click' and im not really in one cuz im different. If you dont have the nice colthes then you are a nobody.This is seems good but in the end its horriable. i dont really suggest on sending your kids here.

I'm currently in the 10th Grade and to me Oconomowoc High School is a pretty good school overall,but they focus on sports way too much. There aren't many extra curicular activites and over the past years they have gotten rid of the most important classes that you can have. If they would focus more on the students needs then on sports it would be a better school.
