Not to be blunt, but Oak Hills is kinda what I would call a "culinary school" it's a joke with me and my friends. All of the people I know whose sons/daughters went to there and have recently graduated or dropped out ended up working at Taco Bell or Skyline for a normal job and not going to college (this is the culinary school joke).

But that's not only why, my friend who has a son said to me that his son constantly complained about how there was a drug bust every month or so and a fight literally every week or 2. Obviously, unless his son is making this up I can't really say I disagree since a good amount of vandalism in Bridgetown is always done by Oak Hills kids.

As for Taylor, didn't really mean what I said since I honestly don't know much about Taylor. I do know much about Oak Hills though

But does Oak Hills from that students standpoint sound top of the line "Rated Excellent" school it is claimed to be?
Oak Hills High School is very large, and I suspect encompasses a broad range of academic abilities and values among its students. Perhaps the people you know are not among the, um, cream of the crop. I don't know anything about the school specifically, but I do have some experience with large public high schools. You're making it sound like Withrow, Woodward, or Aiken. I seriously doubt that it is.

looking at the school linked off of the wiki, at least one 2010 graduate went to Yale.

they have like 30 ap courses.

i'm thinking your friends were just deadbeats.

I'm sure you'll probably find drug busts and fights every once in a while at Mason, Lakota, Sycamore, Wyoming, and other top-rated schools too. Should we likewise call them trashy/crappy schools?

My friends are fine, their sons/daughters honestly I can agree, weren't the cream of the crop.

I'm sure that there are plenty of good kids (maybe) at Oak Hills, but it definitely doesn't deserved to be praised as amazing.

Nonetheless, I would pick Mason High School over Oak Hills High School ANYDAY.

Didn't know Oak Hills had just under 3,000 kids, HOLY CRAP.

Haha that reminds me... when a gradeschool friend of mine was a law student at NKU (around 2004) his coke dealer was a junior at Wyoming High school and when that didn't work out he knew a kid that was a sophomore at Indian Hill.
