From a parent, it appears that the students are academic, athletic, kind, and spirited. They are always working together to help each other succeed. They are the most spirited in the valley. On pep rally days or spirit days, 3700 students dress up and show their school spirit, which is amazing to see. A new student that wants to attend GOHS needs to be ready to join in the spirit of the Pack, be ready to be challenged, and be ready to have the best 4 years of their lives.

A typical Great Oak student makes many friends who then in turn help each other. Our students wholeheartedly practice Rudyard's saying (which is written in many of our rooms), "The strength of the Pack is the Wolf, and the strength of the Wolf is the Pack." The hardest classes offered are very popular with the students because each student is willing to strive for excellence, though it may be difficult. Many Students even have the blessing of having the most rigorous classes and still compete in sports! If you want teachers who focus on learning rather than mere grades and friends who guide you onward rather than downward, you will be a perfect fit everywhere at our diverse school.

A typical day for a wolf begins with a good breakfast, as we are conscious of its affect on academic performance. Upon arriving at school there is some time before class to talk with friends or check out a library book. After two periods of 54 minute classes we have Break, consequently before third period there is a 30 minute Intervention period used for assemblies throughout the year as well as the opportunity for students to catch up on missed or late work with teachers. After third and fourth period there is lunch, where many students engage in clubs across campus, relax with friends or study in the library. Next is fifth and sixth period. After the final bell rings many students rush off to sports, band or the theatre, ready to enjoy themselves in the activity of their choice after a challenging academic day. An ideal student to attend Great Oak is one who is serous about academics and wishes to be extremely involved on and off campus.

People who are high spirited should attend Great Oak because we take our spirit days and sports events very seriously. There is no "typical student" at Great Oak since everyone is an individual.

You everyday Great Oak student is very ambitious and welcoming. They are spirited and hard working within their classes and take pride in going to their school. They are involved in at least one activity and have a strong relationship with at least one teacher or staff member. The skills they need for a successful life are in their hands when they leave.
