    The teachers at Oil City Middle school are great and take extra care when a student needs help

    I go to the Oil City Middle School and I love it. It is a great place to send your children for an enriching education! It has been said that 'Failure is Not an Option ' and they make sure this is true! The extra-curricular activities are great. The school provides many sports such as football basketball wrestling and others. It is a voluntary thing so there is no pressure on the students. Parent evolvement is outstanding and they do many hands on projects to help the school. Over all the Oil City Middle School is a great school! I would recommend it to anyone! Thank You Oil City for making my school years great!
