Golden Oak Community School 3

This school has changed in a huge way over the years. Golden Oak is forgetting about the needs of the whole child. They are more worried about high test scores then letting these kids be kids in a happy, positive, loving and nurturing environment. We have been at this school for 6 years now and the negative change in the overall atmosphere is very noticeable. From the parents, to the teachers, to the children and how they are disciplined (ineffectively) - I am beyond unimpressed with the direction this school is headed in. Golden Oak loves their technology and will spend spend spend, however, provides the entire school with a handful of balls to play with during the few minutes they get during the day to actually play. It is very sad. The kids need more than iPads, Smartboards and Chrome Books to thrive and learn. A healthy balance is definitely needed here. I hope to see some positive changes soon

Some teachers are effective, some teachers have work to do on providing an ample environment for learning.

This school teaches children to be goal oriented. The A.R. program is a great program that helps these children thrive in their reading skills.

I do not feel this school focuses on much other than drilling the children with facts (to ace those multiple choice tests). This way of teaching does not promote critical thinking skills, empathy, caring for others or compassion.

This school is a great place for children to achieve academic success while experiencing a small nurturing community environment. My children were completely prepared for junior high and have continued to exceed expectations on the new State Tests.

They don't want to do any extra curriculum activities! They are just collecting a paycheck!

I'm a parent of a 3rd grader at Golden Oak. I don't like how 3rd grade teachers separate students everyday into different classrooms based on his/her reading and math test scores (low, middle or high) and then teach them different curriculum. 8 and 9 year olds need more time with their primary teacher in order to build a strong bond and communication. I don't think my son's primary teacher heard my child read until halfway through the school year! Crazy!

I have been a parent at Golden Oak for the past 5 years and am very unimpressed this year. The Principal and teachers showed a complete disrespect for parent concerns and instead became dictators. I think teachers are just burned out with all of the Technology and Common Core training and testing that they have lost focus on teaching children the love of learning.
