This school is great. There was great communication between teachers and the principal to the parents. They are constantly trying to improve the grounds and equipment to keep it interresting for the students.
I met some of the most caring staff and teachers in many years of being involved in elementary schools at Oasis!
Both of my children have had great experiences at oasis. Mrs. Balthis (3rd grade) is the best teacher we have ever come across. She is so understanding and helpful with every student no matter what their needs are. My children absolutely love school and have scored extremely high academically. The work is challenging yet not overwelming for the students.
Nice, caring teachers and staff. We have been very pleased with our experience here.
Our move to the Oasis neighborhood was the best one we could have ever made for our children. The teachers are very understanding and helpful. The office staff is very informative on any questions or concerns a parent needs help with. We moved into the area in Sept. '03 just after the school year got started, the teachers wasted no time in getting my children up to speed on the happenings in the classroom. They also provided the support our children needed when moving into a new school, by the end of the year both of our children had grown in the academic as well as their social skills. Thanks Mrs. Campbell (5th) and Mrs. Thalacker (6th)!!!
I liked the way this school is set up. Good parent/teacher involvment.
We are locating to Peoria from San Diego and the reason we chose Peoria was because of the rave reviews we hear about Oasis School
Overall, the staff at Oasis has been wonderful for our children. I do not feel that the curent principal provides adequate leadership for the staff and community. The former assistant principal was definitely the 'go to' person if you had a concern!
Oasis has dedicated, caring teachers who take the time and effort to teach and foster student's growth and development. We have been so pleased with Oasis and could not ask for a better school for our children to attend.
My child attended Oasis Elementary for 1st grade with MS. Young. MS. Young proved to be an excellent instructor for my child. My child's learning and social skills improved drastically, where they had been lax before. MS. Young brought out the best in my daughter. She was crying the last day of school, when she realized that she would not have the same instructor. My daughter is anxiously waiting the start of 2nd grade with Mrs. White, so she can 'keep learning amazing new things', as my daughter put it. The only negative thing I would have to say is that they would offer an after school extra-curricular programs for children that are younger in Art, music, science and reading.
My son attends the Community Preschool Program at Oasis and I could not be happier with this program. Mrs. Perez and Mrs. Hailey are absolutely wonderful teachers and my son loves them both. All of the activites are age appropriate. They read great stories, do wonderful art projects and they go on neat field trips, and they have a good dose of ouside play time each day. The teachers are both very open and communicative with all of the parents and they are the same with the students. As a parent I am made to feel very welcome at all times in the classroom and Mrs. Perez regurlarly informs me about how my son's day progressed. I was happy to learn that the principal is very supportive of the preschool program. I commend her for this because it is a great program. I'm sad to say, however, that others in the school are not so supportive of the program. For example the preschool children are not allowed to use the library. And the art teacher has refused to come into the preschool classroom. While these two sitations point to the fact that not everyone on campus is supportive of the preschool, it is a great program nonetheless, and I highly recommend it.
The most outstanding problem is that they let children as young as 5 years old walk around the open style school campus unattended by an adult is certain situations every day!!!The principal has been found in most situations to be uncooperative. She will tell you what you want to hear, then do what she wants and then says that you must have misunderstood her.
