They have some good teachers here. But the principal, Robert Morales, is too passive and let's the kids disciplinary issues get out of control. My 3rd grader comes home complaining that her class doesn't complete their lessons because the other students are behaving so poorly. The teacher sends them out to Mr. Morales who does nothing and sends them back to class where try continue to act out. Moving my child out of there now.
My son just started the dual immersion program this year. I was nervous because he is an English Only student. I had several parents as well as his pre school teacher try to discourage me from putting him in the program. They said it confuses the child to learn the two languages so early. What set me at ease is that the principal's daughter is in the dual immersion program. It is comforting to know that she trusts the program enough to put her own child in. My son has been doing great. He loves learning Spanish and the extra challenge was exactly what he needed. The staff is wonderful at Bonnie Oehl. My son is only in kindergarten but it seems like most of the staff members know him by name (in a good way).
They have great Dual Immersion classes. From kindergarten to 5th grade. They not only learn english perfectly but they also learn spanish with ease.
I've had 4 children attend Oehl over 9 years. There are some great teachers. Too bad there hands are tied by 'standards.' If you have taught your children anything at home,you probably don't want to send them to public school. Too much time is spent trying to catch up on the first five years of life. If you think that schools are your children's primary teachers, by all means, send them. Schools are more interested in attendance, or rather their precious funding, than they are in scholastic achievement; they are more interested in punishmests than positive direction. I do know! For two years straight I helped out in multiple classes an average of 10 to 15 hours per week. (More parents should do that if they want positive reform.)
The teachers and staff at Bonnie Oehl are wonderful! They are supportive, caring, and very helpful. They really go out of their way to make sure the kids there succeed. I was always kept up to date on my child's progress and problems. The only problem I had with the school is the need for a (much) larger multi-purpose, or auditorium room. There are simply too many children and parents in attendance for award ceremonies.
