The administration at this school is terrible! The principal walks around at lunch and yells at the students and listens in on their conversations. He and the vice principal are uninterested in the well being of the students. My student was yelled at by the vice principal because school was missed school due to the flu that was caught from other students. Her concern was not for my students health but the money the school wasn't recieving because of the absence. She threatened my student with detention if school was missed again. Bullying is an everyday occurance. The gates are often left unlocked. On one occasion an unauthorized adult took a child. The police became involved. Several times adults were seen on the grounds that none of the staff recognized nor were they signed in to be there. There were 700 students per lunch time and often only 3 adults supervising them. Injuries were frequent. The principal is involved in lawuits on a monthly basis. We pulled out student out of this school because we needed a safe environment for our child to attend and administation that are concerned about our child, not just money!

Our two radically different children (5 years apart) have gone through Oak Valley Middle School. Both have emerged academically prepared for high school. The school is safe, clean and positive.

We relocated to the area prior to the start of the 06-07 school year and this is the 2nd full year my daughter has attended Oak Valley. We largly based the neighborhood we chose to live in on reviews of the district and schools. I have no regrets and feel so fortunate to have landed in this great place called '4S Ranch' with an amazingly supportive school staff. My daughter is well adjusted and the school was a huge part of that! We love this school!

This school is just fantastic. It is run by Sonya Wrisley, who is the most caring, understanding person I've met. All the teachers are hired based on their love of students and teaching. They are all very talented and kind. The facility is brand new, as of 2005. The Gym and MPR are both great. Each classroom is equipped with and LCD projector, a VCR, and a DVD player. There are 2 computer labs in every building, and the library. Everyone tries to make middle school as easy a transition as they possibly can, so if it's at all possible, go to Oak Valley Middle school!
