The director has her own agenda and stabbed all of the middle school parents in the back. She doesn't have the students' best interests in mind.
Not impressed with administration. Lack of leadership, and high staff turnover. Middle school staff is outstanding.
I am a student who goes to oasis. I have been going here for 3 years now. I have noticed a huge turnover in the staff within that time. Right now the administration is trying to shut down the middle school. They want to put in a S.T.E.M. Lab which stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math lab because of the bad test scores. But it is not the middle school students who have the bad test scores it's the 4th and 5th graders. The bad test scores have been happening now for 3 years now. But they didn't inform us until now. They also didn't inform us about shutting down the middle school until now. But my question is why did they not tell us until now, why didn't the principle do anything about the bad test scores, and why do we the middle school have to suffer for what the 4th and 5th graders did. The middle school teachers are outstanding. But some of the staff members frown upon the middle school. I feel like there is a lack of leader ship.
My daughter is so happy at this school. They have a wonderful Principal and staff that work together always putting first the learning and happiness of their students. They math and reading supporting groups, special education support, language and psychological therapist. They have drama, computers, Spanish, music-my daughter is actually learning to play an ukelele and to speak Spanish. So wonderful. They have drama, they have enrichment classes on Wednesdays, like folklorico and Irish dancing, they have Foods from the Americas, etc. Parents are required to volunteer a number of hours per year, so you always have parents helping in the classrooms and at school events. They have afternoon family meetings for grades several times every so often, parenting classes, they have box land at the end of the year, where kids plan their own businesses, ohh my is such a great school, my daughter is so happy to go to this school.
This school is great! If you are an active parent and care about your children's education without a hefty price tag monthly I suggest this school. They are doing an excellent job teaching the kids. Your child will be so content and eager to learn. It's not a traditional school or private it's a CHARTER. They have a great academic program that doesn't burn out your children. The week curriculum schedule is awesome (see for yourself on the school website). I love how they also in cooperate live smarts with everyday living. The kids that attend the school are all excellent citizens and demonstrate great leadership roles that are going to be important in the years to come. One last note, being we live in Salinas the school knows and sees the importance of teaching the kids Spanish. I highly recommend this school. Families are united!
I really hate to write this review on Oasis. When my daughter was in this school for 3-5 grade. I really loved this school and my daughter did too. In the end of 5 grade we moved away to the San Francisco Bay area and I put my daughter in public school. I was so surprised how behind my daughter was in her studies. She was so behind that I had to hire a tutor for her in order for just to catch up in the 5th gade level. I'm writing this to warn any parent putting there child into Oasis. The school has a lot of charm and its very personal which I liked, but on the down side the academics are not up to par by any means. My daughter had a hard time once she left Oasis, don't make the same mistake.
as a founding member of the school I know I am not impartial, but I think that the school's community is outstanding. The growth of the past two year's is having an effect of the intimate feel of the school, but as these new students and families are assimilated into our school it will be better than ever.
Kids learn in a variety of different ways an Oasis allows students to explore their creative artistic learning modalities which is rare in elementary schools these days. ROCK ON OASIS!!!!
I am a parent AND teacher at Oasis! It is the most amazing school I have ever encountered. It is a school with a very tight-knit community, a passion for enrivonmentalism, and a love of learning!
I think this is a wonderful school for my child, especially with the new school location.
In addition to teaching the fundementals, Oasis is also teaching the students how to be good citizens.
Oasis is a wonderful school. My son has attended since kindergarten. He is now in the 6th grade. Oasis has allowed him to be creative in his learning and apply the knowledge learned from his school environment to real world situations. They teach to the student as a whole individual and provide a nuturing and positive place to grow and learn.
Because of the wonderful feeling of belonging to a small community dedicated to the education and rearing of children. Not an institution created by a legal authority and delivering prescribed education to uncaring unmotivated 'Students'.
I love the quality and caring of the teachers for the students. The mission of the school is one I agreed with. They teach tolerance and cooperation to the schools.
It is a constructivist school with a mission of raising responsible citizens for a democracy.
I love Oasis School because of the atmosphere which allows the children to grown into responsible adults and helps them to see the broader realm of society, giving back to the community. The class sizes are smaller, the educational material is suitable for the child's enjoyment and the children feel as though they are part of a blessed community. The teachers are all highly trained and educated and come to school each day with a smile on their face. This school has become like a second home for the children, a place they don t want to leave at the end of the day and a place where they are eager to get to at the beginning of the school day. Very different from a public school system.
The teachers make learning enjoyable for the kids; kids get to do a lot of thinking; arts are a big part of the curriculum along with academics; excellent teachers
Small school. Great staff and convenient location. My sons STAR test scores have dramatically improved in the last year.
Oasis is a small school with a great heart. It searches and builds the potential in every child.
