  • I currently am enrolled at Oak Park High School and I absolutely love it! Dr. Skretta is an amazing principal and I really like all the assistant principals also! I always feel that when i walk through the hallways of Oak Park that I am in a school of diverse, driven, intelligent, and most of all content and happy students. The student body of Oak Park is a very dedicated group of individuals. I believe we are very smart and responsible school. The way we present ourselves in society proves this. We receive above average, even proficient test scores and have an amazing attendance rate. I believe we have the most potential out of many of the school in missouri. I feel that we push for academic excellence in every way. We never settle for second best and we always strive for more. Oak Park High School is one of the top schools in america and I am proud to say that I am going to graduate from Oak Park High School! So I have just one final statement...GO NORTHMEN!!!
