I have been in the school since the 7th grade while they were working things out for the new middle school. I'm a rising senior now. Oak Hill High School has been the most adaptable, accepting, and has the most caring staff I've ever seen. I've seen tragedy in that school. We've lost teachers, students, classes, etc. But we've gained so much as well. Other schools didn't have a choice but to emerge with ours and we had no choice but to welcome them to our Red Devil Family. Some classes are harder than others and some teachers are harder on some students, not because they hate them, but because they see the potential in them. With all public schools, there are of course some complications like people taking advantage of the bathrooms and then other people not taking their discipline actions seriously, but one thing our school does best is give everyone the opportunity of a second chance. We have a terrific fine arts program, as well as the F.I.T programs. Now that we have more teachers, we have a better variety of classes, which allows the students to take classes that actually interest them. I will be proud to be graduating from this school. I've never seen a school like Oak Hill.

This school has great academic opportunities. The teachers are all fantastic and want every student to succeed. The administration has done a great job at making sure the students are always protected from anything hazardous. The school is a bit crowded, but the grad rate is fantastic. We have a football, baseball, golf, track, softball, soccer, and cross country team. Every student here is offered the same opportunity as the next. Parents are also involved a lot in the activities. Most student's parents are graduates from this school so its very family oriented. I love this school and i would recommend it to anyone.
