"This school is a very great school to be in. Very diverse and they offer many programs to their kids such has nursing, biotech, and etc. This is a high-school you want your kids to be in. This school focuses alot on the kid's academic skills. This school gives a lot of opportunity to let the students experience in their future college goals by giving them programs for them to attend. The students in Oakland Tech, they all graduate and in the fall they're all freshman college students !"
"Excellent programs, stable administration, respectful environment, active sports teams. My son is a junior and is in the Paideia program and Engineering Academy. Mr. Merrill just received the Jefferson Award. Other academies include Green, BioTech, Health, Computer and Performing Arts. Students can also choose their own path. Scheduling problems are resolved quickly, there are no fights on campus, teachers are willing to help, love their jobs. Students go on to top colleges, if they are willing to work."
"Great environment, suportive teachers, academically challenging classes, even for our "gifted" child. We are happy in this school, and looking forward to Engineering, Paidea & soccer team next year."
"PROUD ALUMNI, I learned a lot of things about LIFE at this school I would not have learned at a private school. I played Football and also participated in track & field so I was not involved in many clubs except for asthma peer counseling. I have seen this school evolve quickly but there is still room for improvement."
"As a student at Oakland Tech, I would say it is a great school. It is not perfect, but one can have a great experience if they choose to. There are many AP classes including Biology, Spanish, Mandarin, Physics, Chemistry, US History, English and many others. There are also many academies that one can enter starting from their sophomore year including the Health Academy, Engineering Academy, Biotech Academy, and others. We have a wonderful Performing Arts program that is internationally known. The teachers are there to assist you-but you need to want the help first. It's not all on them. The sports department is also great, and there is community involvement! Tech is a really good school."
