My husband and I live right down the street from Desert Oasis and enrolled our 5 year old nephew there when he and his sister came to live with us. His teacher seems very nice and enthusiastic but I started finding that in class to rush him she would write the answers on his paper with a high lighter and have him trace them. I told her I thought it was preventing him from really learning anything, as well it was all stuff he writes on his own at home. She stopped for a while and then I began finding his papers coming home like that again. Since the second week of school the receptionist started frowning whenever I would stop in the office to sign in before walking him to class. There were several times I would say good morning to her and she wouldn't even respond as well as another lady who is very cold and unfriendly in the same ways. It makes me feel very uncomfortable having to sign in everyday before taking him to class. I truly have no idea what I could have done to provoke such tension.
I have been very impressed with my child's 5th grade teacher. Very caring, very professional and her classroom is organized and consistently set up for success. My child is having a very good year thus far.
Very disappointed in the school district. My daughter has gone to this school since Kindergraten, has always got straight "E" and "A", we had the chance to put her in a charter school but she had to be tested before she could get in, when having her tested she now has to repeat the third grade in the charter school. Which was a shock to myself and my husband. This is NOT an A+ school district for education. The teachers and staff are awesome
I recently enrolled my child at this school and I am very impressed with their professionalism and conduct. I heard some negative stories, but as with any profession there is good and bad so I don't put to much weight on the gossip. I highly recommend this school, personable and dedicated to quality education.
