Nothing to write home about here. Hendershot is a nice guy, but nice guys do not produce great schools. The lack of funding in general is a big concern. Seems like he spends more effort and money in to the annual play instead of putting that energy in to better education. Books, classrooms, chalk boards, dewi decimal system... old old old. This is a bigger problem with Oxford itself. The old folks dont want to allow commercialization of Oxford which could put some funds in to the school so they let things get worse and worse each year. - Signed concerned parent that speaks for many in Oxford.

My daughter has attended this school for the last two+ years. I am so happy with this school. Mr. Hendershot and his town meetings are wonderful. The teachers my daughter has had have been warm and caring and I feel good everyday sending her to school. She has grown so much in her independance and I feel OCS has been a big part of that.

My daugher was at Center for 2 years. Heath Hendershot was exceptional in my opinion.

My Child graduated from Center school last spring and has now gone on to Great Oak Middle school. In her 3 years at Center school my biggest issues were health related, due to the mold in the campus buildings and the unsanitary conditions in the cafeteria. While all was not perfect it; it was not all bad. The parent's dedication for volunteering at Center school makes a huge difference. You must be involved in your student's education and monitor what they are doing during school hours to make a difference. I adored Quaker Farms School ... Tolerated Center School; and look forward to the next 3 years at Great Oak.
