Once upon a time, an amazing school with great teachers, academics and family environment. Unfortunately, the previous administration ruined the school and the new administration is not capable of lifting the school up and turning it around. I'm so glad I decided to leave the school, it's sad that the parents that have stayed are blinded by the lies they are told by the administration and management company. We all know the school is a "D" yet on the website it states a "C". There are no parent meetings anymore, parents are not welcomed into the building and the governing board minutes are not posted, so what is being kept for those parents willing to stick it out?

Our principal, Mrs. Beceiro is doing an amazing administrative job! The time and effort alone put in towards our school on a daily basis is remarkable. She along with the teachers and staff are all professional, knowledgeable and highly qualified in their line of work. The teachers are receiving instructional guidance in their classrooms so that the students may be successful. Our curriculum coach also works hard in guidance towards helping the students succeed. Many improvements to the school we've seen so far with new books, computer lab set up, sports team, fun and learning activities for the students, and so much more to come. Oxford Academy has come a long way, but as they say... good things come to those who wait! I say, we will continue to shine! Thank you Oxford for all the years and memories you've given my family! We are now better than ever!!!

We would like to take this time to thank you, Principal Beceiro, for all that you have done and are doing for Oxford Academy of Miami. You are very professional, educated and personable Principal, which is a blessing Oxford Academy of Miami needed. Our daughter has been attending Oxford Academy of Miami for the last five years. We are in complete agreement that with your guidance and dedication Oxford Academy of Miami will be very successful. The teachers are very friendly, supporting and teaching our students the necessary curriculum for the students to be very successful and achieve high grades in all the subjects. The teachers provide helpful information to the parents to assist the students with their assignments. We have seen the Curriculum Specialist in our school making sure that the teachers and students are on the right track with their academic goals. This, to us, is very assuring of the success of the students and Oxford Academy of Miami. We look to a bright and successful future for Oxford Academy of Miami, our school of choice. Jose and Omaida Arbide

As a parent of an elementary student at Oxford Academy, I am extremely pleased with the transformation that the school has seen since the beginning of this academic year. From an instructional standpoint, students are being held accountable for what they learn daily. Support Personnel are there on a regular basis holding teachers accountable for what is being taught. Systematic changes have created a conducive learning environment that promotes differentiated instruction school wide. While it is evident that enrollment has dropped as a result of the recent changes, these changes have been for the better. Gossipy parents who act as if they were still in grade school themselves, no longer take up space in our school. Every parent is vested in their child's education. Those of us that have weathered the storm, will reap the benefits in the long run. I am elated to have made my own decision to keep my child at Oxford and not succumb to the pressures of disgruntled individuals who are out for revenge on past administration. My child is happier and enjoys going to school everyday this year, a comment i couldn't make in the past. Thumbs WAY up from my family and I with Oxford Academy.

I am embarrassed to say I was a part of oxford once. The best thing for this school, is for it to close. Parents you are blind sided of what's going on there at oxford. Look at the financials... Regardless of how they got like that and by who... It's not going to change the $$! The amount of kids in this school are the amount of kids you would see in an ese (special ed school) . Wake up and smell the coffee! What once was oxford is over, it's time for people to appreciate the good memories that were made in the past and now move on, to bigger and better things for your kids!

The school has potential to improve with the new direction, however we were disappointed and removed our children. Many good teachers left the school and looks like the admin had to make a quick pick . The new teachers leave much to be desired, they scream at the students and have little patience, other teachers are so clueless they don't realize an educator shouldn't be playing pop songs while students are testing and working on math. Leave your Ipod in the car, this seems like an obvious rule. The new administration promised a solid sports program this year, but its yet to be seen. There is a new PE curriculum of course, but no real changes, the problem is not what is taught, but who teaches it and how they do it. If someone needs an easy, lazy job, then teaching is not for them. There are other professions out there, if you don't like teaching just don't! Hopefully the new admin will listen and make some changes fast before they lose the remaining student body.

Oxford in my opinion had good intentions when it first opened. It had some amazing and supportive teachers. However, the principal with the administration did not have the correct back bone nor financial reserve to run the school nor make the school succeed. I withdrew both of my children from there in 2010 and went to an A school. They were sad to leave their friends but were amazed at the new technology, smart boards, abundance of classrooms, art, music computers, even the cafeteria. Transition for them was smooth. You can't deny that oxford fell short especially when compared to a regular public school and what it can offer to a child's education. The new administration will have to do a lot of cleanining up.

OAM Once was an "A" school however as the time passed the school rating is a C-. We have decided not to continue supporting Oxford, specially after what happened towards the end of the year. There are other charter schools that are "A" schools. Thanks Oxford for all the years and memories.

I agree with the last review. My child is able to get the chance he would never get in a public school. The teachers, parents and students are amazing! My child said in the beginning of the year there was some bullying (like in all schools) but said as the year progressed it was a rare occasion. The administration that left needed to go, along with the guidance counselor. Already the enrollment is higher than it was before! This is a fantastic school and one of the rare charter schools to offer middle school education.

We are disappointed with the school and its management, the principal and the assistant resigned, teachers allegedly knew nothing and are not been paid. as parents we are very decepcioneados by lack of information, the organizational disorder. This situation is inexcusable, students are not receiving education from a month ago. are just playing. The educational level is zero. I hope the school board takes action. It is an abuse what they are doing with students and a bad reputation in the educational system of the county.

Of the various schools that I've worked at, the professional environment here feels like a family. it's a pleasure to work here, I don't feel on my own as a teacher, the parents/students are a blessing to work with. I enjoy every day and thank God and my principals for the opportunity to work here.

After many years of supporting the school, we have decided to move. Oxford cannot compete with the other charter schools. There is no doubt that OAM has great teachers; however, the school administration lacks of finances to purchase essential things, like books. We wish to see one day OAM to become a great school. On another note the PTSO president is a joke and everytime she gets, she talks bad about the principal with every parent willing listen. I believe that it is time for her to leave the chair and have a parent who believes in the school take over. Good luck OAM!

I being in Oxford for now 4 years. I like it, because by now everybody knows me and know my kids. The school is ok compare to most of the regular public school out there. The only compain I have its that the principal should make teachers payroll a priority and maybe that way we could keep the good teachers. I the fact that we have lost some many good one and they all leave for the same reason. Eventhough, the principal and all her friends dont have the honesty to admitt it. Hopefully things get better and we get to stay for more years to come. P/S. I believe putting Mrs. Urquiza to teach was a big mistake. She doesn't have the patient and it's always complaining about the kids.

We are now a K-8 school!!!! AWESOME!!!! That's one of the reasons I decided to put my child in Oxford. We are so happy!!! Couldn't ask for more, or perhaps just ask for a little bit more of parents involvement. The PTSO is doing an excellent job!!! Let's support them. Also, the people who have withdrawn their children are really not aware in what they're missing, THE GRASS IS NOT ALWAYS GREEN ON THE OTHER SIDE, you just need to see the grades on your child's report card that's what is important!!!! By the way the administration is doing an excellent job!!!

The size of the school is a plus, classes are small and your kid receives more attention this way. The environment is safe and friendly. There are lots of activities, and fundraisers that celebrate school spirit such as no dress code day. Howeve I consider having a 'nerd day' inappropriate. I cant understand why would a learning institution mock intelligence, or perpetuate a stereotype that ridicules being smart or socially awkward children. I think encouraging this type of event - especially at such young age they dont even know what a nerd is?!- might send the wrong message . There are other themes such as pajama day, or crazy hat day, dress like a historic figure etc. Lets stay away from negative stereoptyping.

I love this school. I am glad I made the decision to put my child at Oxford rather than the home public school. Many great things are happening and more to come. But the only complaint I have is that I wish for the teachers to dress for success. I believe the teachers should also be required to wear uniforms as they are our children's role models and authority figure while they are in school. The sneakers and flip flops should be kept for the weekends.

I am at loss about the criticism. This administrator and office manager have gotten a 6th grade added, and are now working very hard to get a 7th and 8th grade. This means our children will get to stay with their peers all the way through middle school. All this done without an assistant administrator and running a 200 child school. You want warm and fuzzy home school, you want a great education and safe environment then let them do their jobs and judge by your childs education.

I am very pleased with this school, the teachers and administration have been so helpful and understanding. You will not find the warm caring atmosphere at another school. The principal cares about each class and puts forth her maximum effort to run such a good school. The receptionist has always been very helpful with anything I have needed as well as all the teachers. It is a good feeling when you can drop off a middle school student and know they are safe, unlike many other schools. I am looking forward to my child finishing middle school here and hopefully even high school.

Teachers are amazing, doesn t matter if your kid is in Kindergarten or fifth grade all the teacher know your child. The classroom size is small, no more than 16 kids per class, teachers have the time to know your child s strengths and weaknesses and are able to work at the pace of each kid. Principal is doing a great job.

Overall, I am happy with this school. The teachers/ administration really care about the ongoings of the school- and it shows. Between award ceremonies, field trips, and all of the extras that the school provides, the children receive a well rounded experience. FCAT scores may not be the highest, but the school doesn't seem to cater as much to the FCAT, unlike many other schools who postpone all activities until after the FCAT has been taken. For those parents whose children aren't able to receive more extracurricular activities, Oxford parents usually receive a discount for children at the JCC. About the principal- I really couldn't care about her being approachable or not- she seems to be a top notch administrator. I have addressed my concerns with her about the school before and she takes them all seriously and respectfully. She has a lot on her mind! She's trying to run our school, not run a bff competition. :) My desire for the school is this- I wish the children had access to foreign languages. 2x week in Spanish is simply not enough, esp. when children can learn so fast. I have noticed that many schools are running a EFL program (Extended Foreign Lang)- wish we had it, too.

Love the small school, love that the classes are all gifted, Teachers are very loving. Principle is a hard worker but not approachable or easy to talk to. Silvia the cafeteria lady is amazing, cares and encourages kids to finish their plate. Kids have Spanish class twice a week a definite plus in Miami! No sports the is the only defect of this school. I feel kids are missing out on being able to be involved in sports like other schools

My son s first year of school at Oxford has been a wonderful experience. This school year has been very gratifying for us; as newcomers into the school system we feel we could have not chosen a better school. The teachers are excellent; they go above and beyond with the kids. It is a family environment, where everyone knows your child by name and parental involvement is greatly encouraged. I love the fact that discipline is a very important matter. The principal is hard worker, very dedicated and easy to reach. As a parent, in Oxford Academy you can trust your children will be safe while they enjoy high quality education. My son is in kindergarten with Ms. T, he just loves her!!! She is an excellent teacher with great values; she is very caring and dedicated. My son is always excited about going to school, he is very happy at Oxford. I couldn't ask for a better school. I can t forget to mention Miss Silvia, (cafeteria) she is always attentive to the kids, making sure they eat right and caring for them in any possible way.

Oxford Academy of Miami is an excellent Charter school! My Kindergarten daughter loves her teacher Mrs Handal and my Fifth grade son thinks the best of Ms. Michel. I truly feel blessed for having my children attend such a wonderful school where, because of the small ratio of students, we all know each other, communication access is perfect, activities, staff, teachers, principal...everyone's special and really cares. As a parent, in Oxford Academy you can trust your children will be safe while they enjoy high quality education.

This is my daughters second year at Oxford. She came from a very small preschool/pre-k, and i was concerned about sending her to a huge overcrowded public school. I did hours of research and went on many school tours of public, private, and charter schools. I fell in love with Oxford immediately. It is a very small school with small class sizes. The teachers/principal are wonderful. Everyone knows your child by name, including the principal, secretary, founder, and all teachers. They go above and beyond. It is a family environment where parental involvement is greatly encouraged. My daughter has done very well there. It is a multi-ethnic school that not only focuses on academics but on each student as a whole , promoting self-esteem, confidence, manors, dicipline, and educational excellence. My daughter is very happy, and so am I. I highly recomend this school. (and I am very picky!)

This is a great school. My daughter has done very well there. They care greatly education. The teachers are very nice, and caring, going above and beyond the call of duty, my daughters teacher even has her own website for the kids with educational games to help with reading, community events, online books and much more. The Principal has alot of experience and tries hard to make the school the best it can be. She believes in it so much that she has her own daughter enrolled. That says something! I would not want my child any where else!

Oxford Academy administrators, teachers and founder believe in the great potential of our students. My child is a student at OAM and his whole disposition toward learning and being his best has changed because of the training he is now receiving at OAM. It is because of the heart felt and personal philosophy of the entire staff at OAM that his personal motto has now become, 'Mom, I've got to do my best and give my whole heart'. To us as parents there is nothing better than to see your child develop in his character this way. Keep up the excellent work. And and thank you for making a difference in all our lives.

My daughter was there last year in kindergarten. She started the school in January and before that we were making homeschooling. I ask them to help my daughter in the area in which she had more difficulty which in this case was reading but I got nothing. On the other hand my daughter teacher didn't seem to be very patient with kids and never really try to help my daughter. As a consequence my daughter was retained in kindergarten mostly because of her trouble reading. This year I enrolled my daughter in another chatter school and I am very happy there. My daughter is doing really well and little by little she is progressing with her reading. I wouldn t recommend Oxford Academy.
