As students of Oakdale High, we strive to make our community a safer and more inclusive place. As people, we fight for the world to see us as their own. We are your friends, family, lovers, neighbors, peers, and teachers. We are you.
This web page is designed to provide easy access to a plethora of resources in one place. As fellow Mustangs, we encourage you to take a look at some of the content.
Gender and sexuality alliance club
GSA has proudly been a campus club at Oakdale High since 2005. Our goal on campus is to create a safe school environment that encompasses all people. Whether you're out, in the closet, or somewhere in between, we hope you can find a sense of connection and protection in our meetings.

Mental health & other lgbtq+ support
Please refer to the Community Resources card for more help.
Mental health, as vastly complicated as it already is, can be especially difficult to manage when you're part of the community. If you feel that you need support, please reach out in some way. This message is for you, and you're not the exception. You are never too much; you are always enough.
To some people viewing this, the resources provided on this page will seem mundane and pointless, because this has what everyone has been telling you to do all of the time, and you've tried it, and it doesn't help. This is understandable. At the very least, keep in mind:
1) You have not tried everything.
2) You will never ever be alone in what you are feeling.
