it is a nice and safe school, staff and teachers are very responsible. Parents can count on this school
Oak is a great school with fun teachers, excellent education, several different athletics, the BEST music system, and better lunches (XD).
This school is the BEST!!!! All the teams are really great and the teachers too!!! Adventurers and Mavericks are the BEST of the BEST!!!!!!!!!! The music department is the best too!! Band III has won sweepstakes in many parades over other high schools and middle schools. Advanced orchestra is doing a Giving Bach program which teaches children from different schools music. They go to different schools like Raymond, Field, Junior Blind, and much more. Altogether, this school is recommended the BEST!!!!! XD
Hi, I attend Oak Avenue and I've got to say, THE SCHOOL IS AWESOME! There are teams like Seekers(it is the team I am in), adventurers, and Voyagers for 7th grade. 8th grade is Mavericks, Challengers and Explorers! Hope you would like to go to Oak! It's a great school! See you guys there!
The scholl is old and small, some teaches are very good, but some not. The reason to get grade 10 I believe the most of the students are chineses.
HELLO BACON LOVERS!!!!! I am currently an Oak student going to 8th grade. I am in the advanced orchestra and its awesome!!!!!! Temple city has a lot of students participating in clubs, music, drama, etc. If you have a child that wants to go to an awesome music school, GO TO TEMPLE CITY!!!!!!! ^-^
I am a former student of Oak Avenue. I had attended this school for 7th grade before transferring out to the Walnut district. Comparatively, I would prefer Oak over the school I attended for 8th grade. Although the Walnut district is becoming prodigious for high academics and a great API score, Oak Avenue offers a better atmosphere for the developing student. The teachers are passionate in teaching, they care for the student and truly want them to learn. There is also a very positive school spirit that surrounds the environment, the children are proud of their work and achievements. Oak Ave's music program is also great, the teachers care and are determined to helping shape the world of music into the student's mind to open new aspects in their life. In my opinion, a really great school!
I was a student at Oak Avenue in 1973 - I had the best teacher by the name of Mrs. Gagliano. We were so sad when she passed away. I still think of her all the time.
Former student, and I would say it is alright. I did not particularly like the experience there, but that was just me. Still a fair school though.The teachers are pretty great, and the students are pretty bright themselves as well. The rivalry between the seventh graders and eigth graders is becoming ridiculous though. Hi current students, just a heads up, stay out of the drama. Really, it will save a lot of tears. :) Also, be nice and listen to your teachers here, because the high school teachers are ruthless will chew your heads off if you do not do the same with them.
I Am A Student At Oak And I Love It. There Are So Many Activities, Clubs, And Electives To Choose From. The Students Are Great,The Staff Is Helpful, And The Campus Is Clean And Fit For Us....I Love Middle School!
Hi, I'm a student from Oak Ave. and currently in 7th grade and in Intermediate Orchestra. And from a transfer's point of view, this school is very good and has about over 100 string players in the entire orchestra. I suggest this school to anyone who is interested in being educated well and still enjoying school at the same time.
Hello, I'm a current student at Oak Avenue, and I agree with the peers below this review, it is a wonderful school and it is so rich in education. But, actually, this summer, Oak is going to change its floors to HARDWOOD! So, there shouldn't be more complaints, except for my friends and I missing out because we are going to the high school next September.
Oak Avenue is a wonderful intermediate school. There is an amazing music program. There is also a wide variety of electives for students to choose from. My only small complaint is the gym floor should be changed into wood.
I like all the teachers and staff, However, out gym needs work, I mean carpet? We need wood floors and air conditioning to prevent rugburns and overheating at the dances.
I am a student here currently. It has been several weeks since the first day of school. The teachers there, overall, really seem to enjoy what they're doing. I learn a lot and everyone is just so nice. There are many extra-curricular activities such as sport teams, and many other things like that. We have an excellent music program which I'm in. It really is an extraordinary school.
The teachers my son had this last school year were academically challenging, they held the students accountable for their work and actions, and truly enjoyed their jobs, hence making learning a good thing for the incoming 7th graders. The principal held unruly students accountable for their misbehaving, and the support staff were always available to help those of us who hadn't quite yet navigated the world of middle school. So far, the first year wasn't as bad as I was led to believe it would be.
I love this school. My child has teachers and a staff that truly care about her. I love the fact the school gets parents involved and holds us as parents responsible for our children. Temple City has the best staff.
