Teachers are great, but the admin is bad from the top down. They are more interested in numbers than students. They make decisions that keep teachers from doing what they were trained to do. Teachers are frustrated and are leaving in recird numbers. That should tell you something.
My daughter goes to Oxford Middle School. She's in the seventh grade. She likes just about all of the school except for the way they go about things. I would have to agree with her that they are making very bad choices. They've changed everything since the beginning of the school year, and everyone's getting sick of it. Oxford School System is fine, but the middle school is ridiculous!
There have been many changes at Oxford Middle School since this data was updated. The school is now 7th-8th only. There are about 730 students. Several teacher units have been added this year to reduce class sizes. I honestly feel that the faculty is the best around. They are academically minded, bur never forget the human aspect. After a couple of years of rapid growth, the system is making adjustments to make Oxford Middle the best place it can be. I have seen some wonderful things from the new Superintendent, and am looking forward to many more. Their special education program is wonderful! In short, it is the best middle/jr. high school in this area.
My daughter has been in the Oxford City School System since Kindergarten. I like the school system as a whole but do not like the favoritism that is played. The teachers are very political and fair treatment of all students is not recognized. Would also like to see notes sent home about the childs conduct from ALL teachers. Conduct in general would improve if the Parent could know how their child was acting at school and could be corrected at home. Extracurricular activities are fine. Would like to see more after school programs for those who need a place to stay after school is out. (not just for those through the sixth grade). Thank you.
I used to go to Oxford Middle for my 6th grade year half of 7th and 8th. I transferred to Alexandria High and all I can say is I just wish I was back at Oxford. I loved it. Now Im going into the ninth grade and at alexandria that is the grade which everybody starts partying...I miss Oxford sooo much!! It's a really fun and educational school. So for the parents that are planning on moving to Oxford, I would consider Oxofrd Middle a really great school...Good Luck!
