This school has a very well learning habitat but your kids are picked on classes are very big and people with wealthy parents want to act better than everyone else. I would defiantly not refer this school to anyone.


Posted April 9, 2009

This school deserves all the awards it recieves. The academics are very well, enough to where it is not uncommon for student transfers from other schools to have to be placed back a grade once enrolling at Oneonta.

I love this school! One parent to another I have been to many schools in this area and would drive my kids each day an hour to get them to this school. These teachers work not only for their students but also for the parents. One of my children has had diff. with reading and I had tried everything that I could to help her,when at the first of this last year I talked to the teacher and not only did the principal and other teachers got involed and now my child loves to read not many schools do that.
