I cannot say enough about this school!! I've had 2 children in the Oakwood Schools and I brag to everyone about them! Oak Tree is a small school with a family feel. My children benefitted from the structured, well rounded program! What more can I ask for? Breakfast, lunch, afternoon snack, long hours, solid curriculum, and competitive rates...Awesome!!

This is a wonderful school with a great education system. My child has learned so much in the short time she has been here. The teachers are friendly and always have a smile on their face. I am so thankful that my daughter has a great place to be while I'm at work.

Oaktree is a nice small preschool with a family feel. The director is great and always willing to help. My child gets breakfast, lunch and an afternoon snack everyday. The teachers are very friendly and because they are so small, every teacher knows every child and family there.

I forgot to mention the coercive reading. The school believes that as long as the children are reading by the end of preschool they have accomplished their goal. However, the way in which they taught the children was forcefully. I do not agree with that method.

My 2 year old was bringing home art projects my 6 year old could not do. What happened to good old fashioned finger painting. I dont want my child to watch his teacher make an art project I want him to do it.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
