With three children attending Oak Mesa it has been a wonderful experiene. The teaching staff is superb and dedicated to the children beyond expectations. The parents work well with the teachers and students and give them opportunities not provided by the school for extracurricular activites. The only complaint can be in the form of the new principal who is more conscious of of individual parents and wants. She has a tendency to overlook the overall good of the students and school while catering to these few. All of the children are getting a super education in spite of this and cudos belong to the entire teaching staff.
My husband and I researched the schools extensively since we have 3 kids in grades k-7th and 2 of my children are at Oak Mesa currently. I cannot say enough about how wonderful this place is. The teachers are incredible and even the parents are so kind and helpful to one another. My kids love this school and regret having to leave after 5th grade. My only complaint is that I wish it was up to 8th grade! I am extremely impressed with the quality of education, the dedication of the teachers and the safety precautions they have in place. I feel my children are blessed to be at such a place and we won't relocate from here for this one reason alone.
Oak Mesa is wonderful and the teachers seem very committed and interested in the chilren. All three of my children attended this school, with my youngest still there in 1st grade. I am very impressed with the quality and integrity but believe more could be done in the way of extracurricular opportunities.
Oak Mesa has given my children wonderful and meaningful learning experiences during their elementary school years. My kids love going to school everyday and I attribute that to the great teachers they have had at Oak Mesa. The teachers are fantastic and go way beyond what's expected for their students! The staff is hard working, dedicated and truly concerned about their students individual, social and academic needs. However,the new principal does not seem to be very supportive of her teaching staff and tends to bow to the demands of certain parents instead of supporting what is best for the general student population. The principal needs to consider all students and make school decisions based within the public school framework to which she was hired. The teachers are wonderful and the students are getting a great education, however the administration could use some adjusting.
