I am very happy with this school. I have one child at Oswego High and he really likes it. I love that the teachers send emails just to say how great your child is doing. We have had no problems at this school.

All 4 of my kids went to OHS and they were all successful graduates from Loyola, Northwestern, Arizona State, and Syracuse. There are a variety of extracurricular activities and academic help is freely available. There are some fantastic, involved teachers here who truly care about the students. I never ...  Read more

This is a HORRIBLE school! The teachers are not helpful, and the overall staff is not friendly. I had two students attend this school, and one attend Oswego East. My kids who went here were not nearly as prepared as my OEHS grad. The school lacks discipline, and there is lots of bullying here. Terrible ...  Read more

All 4 of my kids went to OHS over the past 8 years and all are/were very successful in college (Northwestern, Purdue, USC, and Loyola), which speaks volumes for this high school.

We have been very disappointed in the school. Our daughter is not a 'star' in athletics, but is a generally nice kid - we have seen her self esteem drop. I've been to the school and way the girls are allowed to dress is appalling - Oswego is no longer a small town - that's for sure,

I am a student at OHS, and my older siblings also attended OHS. I am very shocked to read the dissappointing reviews about my school. I have always been on the high honor roll with a 4.0 GPA. The teachers at OHS are supportive and encouraging and they are there to help the students succeed. We also have ...  Read more

Nothing but high marks for Oswego High School! We have visited several high schools in the area over the past few years and OHS is staffed with dedicated teachers and friendly personnel. The school is very clean and ranks high in many aspects of technology. OHS has been recognized for their top notch ...  Read more

I think the Sports part of the school lacks in the real reason you play sports. It is to teach children how to play and be a team player. Not to be excluded from the games played.
