With the exception of one teacher we did not care for we have been happy with all others. Mr. Hook is wildly popular with the students. Our two sons are happy with Oasis. The faculty and other parents seem motivated and pleased with this school. The buildings and school grounds are clean and well maintained. Both of our sons are getting good grades. I had my Wife and two sons watch the documentary Waiting for Superman. We are very fortunate indeed. Gary

****Update. Oasis Elementary, Middle & High school had teachers win lighthouse awards in each school respectively. A Kindergarten teacher, 8th grade math and High school History teacher all won the award this year. What a true pleasure it is to be a parent whos child attends here.

The teaching goes beyond and they inform you constantly of your child's progress. In addition, the principal is great!

The most recent 3rd grade FCAT scores show that Oasis is a wonderful school. The great thing is they DON'T focus on the FCAT, but do focus on Core Knowledge! With a comprehensive curriculum, high test scores, and bonuses like certified Media Specialist and Music Teacher make Oasis above the rest! Keep it up!

My daughter attended OES for kindergarten and we could not have asked for a better experience. She came from an excellent pre-k program and was well-prepared for kindergarten. Her teacher, Mrs. Wolfe, picked up on this right away and found interesting and unique ways to challenge our daughter. She left school reading above grade level, and scored a 92% on her SAT-10. I owe this to her wonderful teacher who is Nationally Board Certified. Oasis is a rare gem in an education system which often fails to find a way to individualize lessons. they take a holistic approach to teaching which proves to be a great success. Though I can gloat about my daughter's teacher all day long, this is a review of the entire school. The administrative staff is excellent and I love the team approach of teaching. The activities encompass all classes.

We are so gald we found this school! We were concerned about moving our boys from a small private school in the UK to the very large schools here. We should not have feared as Oasis is brilliant, offering the equivalent of a private school, without the cost and we can be more involved in our boys education, through the volunteer system.

This is the best school i have ever had my child in. The teachers are great and the education the children learn is awesome. Mr. Hook is the best principal in the lee county district. He is involved with the parents and children. What makes this school the best is families are brought together and are involved with their childrens education! lisa sanchez

I think this school is the greatest in Cape Coral. I have taught at Oasis since it opened. The staff and the students are the best! Everyone works together to make a great school community. The teachers at Oasis strive to get the best learning possible out of each child. The parents are very committed to their child's learning especially with all the volunteer hours they do. This is the best school in the Cape!

About the tests


In 2013-2014 Florida used the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT 2.0) to test students in grades 3 through 10 in reading, 3 through 8 in math, in grades 5 and 8 in science, and in grades 4, 8, and 10 in writing. The FCAT 2.0 is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Florida. The FCAT 2.0 has 5 achievement levels, with level 1 being the lowest and level 5 the highest. Florida considers scores of level 3 and higher to be on or above grade level. The goal is for all students to score at or above level 3.

About the tests


Florida uses School Grades to measure the overall performance of a school each year on the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT). Each school is assigned a letter grade (A-F) based on three criteria: the overall performance on the FCAT, the percentage of eligible students who took the test, and whether or not students made progress in reading and math. The School Grades are calculated by adding points earned from each of the performance criteria listed above.
