The office admins are cruel they probably hate kids, and they don't listen to anything , they love to make mountains out of molehills. Literally touching someone or give someone a nickname, the school will label it as sexual harassment or bullying and you'll be suspended They still have a uniform policy, which is a thing of the 19th century. The teachers are nice, some are very nice while others need to remember we're in a middle school, this isn't a college campus, stop looking for so many specific things and nitpicking at our work The way they teach Algebra 1 here is broken, they do a "flipped classroom". They expect students to go home and watch videos, but by the time the year is into full swing, they copy out of the textbook, teachers know that an average teenager will get lazy and do the easy way. Inside the class, math is taught for only 20 minutes, then they expect you to fully know it. More than half the students in every alg 1 class are a d or lower The staff also loves to pull up the "Distraction" card on hats, beanies, pics on binders etc. it isn't a legit excuse, anything can be a distraction I can't wait to leave this school, 3 more months and I can enjoy school.
I honestly think that Oaks Middle could do so much better. Principles and teachcers hardly interact with students and students always get away with things like eating in class or chewing gum.
I am a seventh grader at Oaks middle school ,diana hana,12,and i think my school is fantastic i think im so lucky to be in this school.Although i do admit i have some trouble with the rules but other than that everything is great.The teachers,principal,the campous,after school activities,and much much much more are incredible and in my opinon so is the language arts teacher,Mr.s Anainan.
I'm a student at this school & I just wanna say this school rocks! They have the best lockers ever & great food. I love the burritos! The teachers are all fun & stuff. They have great after-school opertunities (I misspelled that). I hope Oaks can keep this level of awesome-ness.
I found this school to have been a great time. I found that the teachers not only taught me a whole lot In my two years but were also friendly people. This school had guided me through the transition to hight school very smoothly. The performing arts department Is amazing.
I'm in my second year at oaks, and Im really enjoying my stay here.Their are so many options here.You can have they greatest time here or it can be your worst it al depends on how you decide to act or react.
This school requires wearing uniforms. Oaks is a fairly decent school but you really have to stay on top of things or your child will get lost in the system,along with all the other kids that cant read,write or do math.
Wow I just graduated from this school and I had fun for my first 2 years. I had many classes with this school cooking,typing,sports,computers, and band all of these electives are great. They also have many fun school projects and stuff like assemblies talent shows I was in one and it was a thrill and dances these are excellent. I wouldnt have wanted to go to any other school just this one and if I could do this adventure all over again I would. Teachers are crazy (in a good way) they care about you and the princible is very very strict the also have field trips!

Well, pretty formal school...lack of leadership from prinicples and students. They pretty much don't care...
I'd like to say this school is very slow on higher learning, my daughter received a B in Algerbra, in this school as where she started with a D in our previous school, which was Snowline Unified School District. And because she likes it, really makes me think how easy it is, and that it is not challenging enough!
This school contains 7th and 8th graders. They are always working hard to improve and enhance their programs to allow students to be more successful. I have talked with many parents that say wonderful things about Oaks. It is my belief that an experience is what you make it and if you want the best school experience everyone needs to work together to make that happen: students, parents, and teachers. I stayed very involved in my child's education and if more parents would get involved many more changes could take place.
This school was the worst 3 years ever. I wished a long time that I left there but my mom said, ' try just for me.' I will never send my child there.
