Blue Oak is the best! The teachers and staff are amazing. The principal could not be beat...a great leader and example for all. The choices available at the school are all top-notch! The education at Blue Oak far surpasses the standard requirements. They learn SO much more, even about how to treat others. LOVE this school.

Blue Oak is a wonderful school! They really make each student feel special and important. They go out of their way to try to keep parents informed of their students progress as well as school activities. I recommend this school to everyone!

Blue Oak is a really great academic environment. The principal is a visionary and has really made a huge difference. The teachers are motivated and seem to love their jobs which motivates and enables the kids. Nothing but positives from me!!!

We love this school. We are actually residents of the Rescue school district and Rescue elementary school but have chosen to transfer to Blue Oak for it's amazing teachers, principal and staff. The parents are involved in all areas of their children's education and the PTA does an amazing job of raising funds, providing school resources, organizing events and planning assemblies. We are part of Blue Oak's Charter Montessori program which is even a great incentive for us to be there. We have one child in preschool, one in the kindergarten program and one in the 1st/2nd grade combo Montessori class. We are extremely happy with our experience at Blue Oak.

Blue Oak is a great school! We are so proud to be a Blue Oak family! We've been at Blue Oak for 4 years, and will soon have a 2nd child starting at Blue Oak. The teachers are fantastic. I haven't met one that I haven't liked yet! The parents are very involved. The principal is very visible, and so kind. She is very approachable. I haven't had any big problems that I needed her help on yet, but if I ever do I will be comfortable going to her. The vice principal also! I'm so sad about the budget cuts, but I know that Blue Oak will find a way to over come this challenge.

A good school but facing major funding cuts threatening arts and humanities. Pros: Very good teachers, especially kindergarten; decent neighborhood, pleasant campus. Cons: Misspelled words seen in the Montessori classroom and the sign in front of the school (unacceptable); extended day program needs improvement; the Principal not as visible as at other top-notch schools; parents need to get more involved. Solid 'C.'

What wonderful teachers, excellent principal, good communication, they listen to suggestions and make changes appropriately. Their Lunch with Teachers program to recognize core values is very rewarding. They keep up with technology, allow children to use technology safely, and keep the grounds clean and well maintained. My kids and I are very happy.

I have had three daughters attend this school and it has been a very successful. The Principal, Assistant Principal, and support staff have all been dedicated to academics and the personal well being of students in general. The success is also due to classroom environments that adapt to each child's level of studies whether it is standard, advanced, or challenged learning. Blue Oak has an extrememly productive reading program and students are taught public speaking at a very young age. My children are confident and respectful. I am very thankful. ~Heather Gendreau

My child has attended Blue Oak for the last 2 years. So far I have had the best experience with this school. The teachers are great at what they do and really seem to care about our kids. The academics are above par. I couldn't believe how advance this school is compared to others in the surrounding area. My son was beginning to read in Kindergarten. And learning about fractions in 1st grade. I was a little overwhelmed with the amount of learning they require of your child, for instance they must know 100 'no excuse words' by the end of 1st grade, but my child has done very well and they take it one day at a time. I participate in the class 2 times a month, could do more if I choose. It's a great opportunity to see how the classroom is run and participate in your child's learning.

Blue Oak provides an excellent learning environment with an academic curriculum that is top level and rivals private education forums. Their teaching staff is qualified and extremely caring and nurturing. The classrooms are spacious and are always bright and cheery providing an inviting and warm feeling. The school grounds are kept clean and manicured, the indoor multi-purpose facility, as well as the athletic fields and play structures are more than adequate to provide plenty of room to play and exercise. We have two children who have or are attending school here and have never experienced any problems with any teachers or staff. In fact, all of our experiences have been extraordinary, positive and pleasant. As an example, both our children have been hospitalized while attending school there and both their teachers made it a point to stop by the hospital to visit and see how they was doing.
