    "Oak Grove is very student involving but there are some issues. The academic system does not teach the students what they need to know. Teachers don't care about the students education. Although the sports are very competitive and students are very creative and artistic. There are about 3 good meals at the school. The facilities are not doing well at the moment because people flooded every bathroom and now the bathrooms need to be supervised. Most of the boys make offensive & racist jokes. The band program is pretty good."

    "I love the people at Oak Grove and the staff. However, I wish Oak Grove was more advanced and taught more realistic things."

    "extracurriculars are great and a handful of teachers really care about their students but still too many teachers that don't care."

    "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."
