for a public school this is a good school, my son is going on his second year and we haven't had any problems with the teachers or staff I do wish this school had more funding more teachers assistants and staff in the playground. I like this school and my son does too.

I love Oak st school because the teachers and principal are really great. They're really care about the children and very dedicated. Whenever I have a concern or question, Mr. Barter (principal) is there to listen.

Principal, teacher's, parents, and students give it their all to make this school great.. I am a proud parent of two children who attend this school. Thanks to all the staff of Oak Street who make this school what it is. A great school to send your children.

Some parents need to teach there kids how to behave in school so teachers can focus more on academics as well as have the school a bigger academics challenge for all grades.

I really don't feel this school has good academics for students. Teachers seem to focus more on teaching to the test. There is hardly any parent involvement, or after school activities.

My child went to oak for 3yrs. I love the principal Mr. Barter. He is very much into his students. He really believes that no child shouldn't be given a fair chance and a good education. The teachers are always willing to work with the parents in helping there children to achieve the best possible education. No concern is too small and they really listen to your concerns and will take action. Mr. Barter believes in trying to help all of his students. My child tended to be a busy body, so Mr. Barter in reconizing that, gave him duties to perform to keep him from getting into trouble. The school has a soccer team, basketball and many other after school activities to help keep the kids out of trouble.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
