Oak Grove High School is entirely centered around the athletics dept. If you are not involved in sports, you are considered little to nothing on the food chain. I have since taken my children out of oak grove and relocated them to West Ouachita. I assure you that if your child is enrolled in Oak Grove High School, he/she will not be considered as important to society if he/she is not enrolled in a sports program.
