    "My experience at this school has been okay and I would even go as far as saying great but the education just isn't where it needs to be for a high school. My extracurricular activities have made the experience much better though. I am in the marching band and SGA. Both of these organizations mean the world to me and they have molded me into the person I am today. I would choose this school again because I believe Oak Grove is a wonderful community and I want to help make this school be the best it can be."

    "The teachers at my school do what they need to to squeak by and are not held accountable for their lack of teaching. There are a select few that do try to teach and do right by the students."

    "Most of the teachers could care less. There is one teacher "Donna" that works only on "tigrrette" preparation during all her classes and teaches nothing. There is a Spanish teacher that gives tons of homework, not on Spanish but on drawing pictures. Most of the teachers could care less about preparing kids college. It seems like they just want to get through the day. The counselor is a wreck and could care less about helping the kids. The principal is a joke."

    "The school offers very little to prep for College. Almost like they expect everyone to go into blue collar jobs."

    "The teacher really do not care. They give an extremely low amount of a workload. It is extremely easy to pass most classes and the ones that are not are because the teacher actually tries. There are literally only a handful of teachers that try and most of the time even the good teachers give up half way through the year because all of the students are failing and that looks bad on them."
