Oak Creek High School has been selected several years in a row as one of America’s Best High Schools based on participation and excellence in our Advanced Placement Program. Working together with parents, students and our community neighbors, the high school provides a safe learning environment where many academic, athletic, and extra-curricular offerings provide varied opportunities for our students to be successful in their future.
Our large and diverse student body allows for choices from a variety of options to pursue in the high school. Students seeking rigorous course offerings can participate in one of our 16 Advanced Placement courses. They may also choose to study one or more of three world languages taught in our digital foreign language laboratory – Spanish, German or Chinese. Our Technology & Engineering Department offers a series of pre-engineering courses called Project Lead the Way. Students who complete components of the Project Lead the Way program are able to take a certification test, which, if they pass the test, will provide the students with college credit through MSOE. Students also have the opportunity to explore the health field in the Health Occupations Youth Apprenticeship and Certified Nursing Assistant Programs. Opportunities are many and varied for students who wish to avail themselves of hands-on learning experiences in our cooperative skills programs, youth apprenticeship programs, and school-to-careers training. Our digitally enhanced television arts studio allows students to experience hands-on technology as they work to broadcast on our own Channel 96/14.
Oak Creek High School provides a wide array of extra curricular activities and leadership opportunities. Over 10% of our student body participates in our music program. Groups such as FBLA, HOSA, Mock Trial and Forensics compete and excel throughout the state. The National Honor Society, Student Council, SADD, Class Officers, Renaissance, newspaper, yearbook, Multi-Cultural Club and others provide service to the school and the community. As a member of the Southeast Conference, we compete in nineteen different sports.
