All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

This is a good school, teachers are very helpful as well. A lot of communication with parents and students. Get involved in lot of creative and interesting activities that will help the kids in their lifetime in the real-world. Never had these golden opportunities when I attended grade school. Great school for a child to remember during childhood.

WOW! An estimated API of 861 (official scores are out in Oct.)! They had an 88 point increase from last year. That is amazing! This is the "little school that could" because nothing seems to stop them from pressing on in spite of challenges. The parent who complained of bad test scores has nothing to complain about now...

Don't be fooled by one crazy families review. Everyone knows at least one or two people who are never happy. I have had three kids go through Oakmont who have had over half the teachers for their instruction. I have also had a chance to volunteer and spend time in several classrooms and overall, I have been very impressed. The instruction, support and assistance my kids have received has exceeded my expectations. No school is perfect, but Oakmont's teachers, staff and administration is doing a pretty darn good job.

Not a good learning environment. Lack of responsiveness. Bullying. Poor communication. Annual turnover of principals. Bad test scores. The worst school in a good school district is still the worst school.

Zero stars for me. The school is not good at all. As you can see parents haven't submitted any recent reviews. They have changed Principals in two years. There is bullying going on even with parents! There is very little parent involvement. Most of the parents who show up to meetings are the same small group. The teachers look overwhelmed with having to teach two grades in their class. Its no wonder they really can not focus on any child. They are always rushed. Okay... I guess there is one good thing. The staff is always helpful, they do know your child by name etc. etc. but, how does that benefit my child?

Oakmont is a wonderful diverse elementary school. The staff and pricipal are attentive to the needs of the students, as well as the needs of the parents. My children and I love this school. Both of my children graduated from Oakmont and they both had wonderful experiences at Oakmont. The teachers work hard to ensure that the children excel academically!

Oakmont is a good school serving a diverse population. There's an impressive sense of community among teachers, staff, and families, and the principal is committed to helping all the students learn. There's a wide range of academic abilities among the kids there, and I've been really impressed at how the teachers (at least in the lower grades) have found ways to keep all the children interested and learning. My daughter loves this school.

I have been very impressed with Oakmont. The principal and staff are dedicated and really connect with students. They challenge students and work with them to improve all areas. They have an outstanding music, art and PE program. They are planning to open as a magnet school in the fall. They have an outstanding outdoor education program for upper grade students that they will be expanding to all grade levels next year. Go Oakmont. This is a great little school

Generally the school is good, I do have some concerns about some of the staff there. The child care program is good but they do not help the children with their homework. My son goes on many field trips and he seems to like it.

We moved to the area to be in a better school district for my children we where so happy to be attending a Claremont school. We where very disappointed as we got more use to the way the school runs and found the office staff and the principal unresponsive to parents / children's needs and undiplomatic to the issues surrounding other parents. The only time they where friendly to us is when we where raising money for the school by selling candy. Now I am desperate to get my kids out of the school, but the Claremont Unified District won't allow me to transfer. I think we would be better off in a Pomona school.

My child is enrolled at Oakmont and I've been generally very happy with his/our experiences there. There have been a few incidences that required speaking to the principal and I think he handled the issues diplomatically, fairly and was very attentive to my concerns.
