Oster is a winning school, it offers almost everything a child needs to grow up with an open mind and established academics. The teachers are involved, in class and after class for children who need to extra attention, the parents are involved to help, donate, support in class rooms and during enrichment programs, the library has wide open doors, the principal is available and dedicated. As a parent, it is very reassuring. This is also a great school were kids come in all shapes and colors, share their culture and help each other. This is so hard to teach, but Oster does. Oster might not have the funds to provide as much as other schools, but us parents and other donors bring in Science lab, reading tools, a Chorus every week, Art every month, music and more.
My children have moved to this school for two years now and we just love this school. Teachers and staffs are very engaged and supportive! Now they are allowing to have more after school programs in the school which is wonderful as parents do not have to drive the kids around for their activities.
Love, love love Oster. Supportive and dedicated teachers. Teachers give ours kids a challenging amount of homework, but I know it's just preparing them for middle school and beyond. A beautiful combination of nurturing and firm discipline.
Our school was recently granted The distinguished school Award. I'm so proud to be a part of this school and community. I was on the parent panel to answer questions regarding our school and principal practices. I learned so much from the experience and it just makes me even happier to be part if this school and community!
My son is going into 3rd grade and has had the best kindergarten, first, and second grade teachers ever. He needed extra support because of a learning disability and the principal and resource teacher had him tested immediately and receiving the services he needed in order to succeed. The new principal will listen to your concerns. The entire staff is caring, friendly and supportive. We love Oster!
My kids attend Oster elementary. Overall the teachers are good. But I am disappointed about the administration and curriculum. No P.E. no art class, music class only once a month due to the budget cut. The current principal is very difficult to communicate with. It's sad to see many good families are leaving. I think our children deserve better education.
