Oak Creek High School was seeking a revamped image that both connected the past and retained a classic look and feel. Starting in 2019, a small team of teachers and administrators worked to uncover what it meant to be an Oak Creek Knight. After interviewing community stakeholders and students, a few ideas emerged.
The city itself is populated and busy in nature but still retains a small town feel. If you meet someone from Oak Creek, more than likely they will treat you like a dear friend or neighbor. Along with a neighborly feel, OC students and staff constantly work to develop and improve each aspect of their lives. From the school fight song, the term “Striving Ever,” is a constant reminder that self-improvement, overcoming obstacles, and being one’s best self is at the forefront of the school community.
Lastly, knights in a historical sense were enlisted to protect the kingdom. The fearless defense of what is important to us is a selfless act meant to keep our community strong. The shield personifies this concept and is at the foundation of new designs meant to bring the school community together.
