Oak Knoll is an excellent school! All of my grand-children (5) attend the school. I have been very pleased and impressed with the overall environment, rapport of the staff, the academic standards. The school is always clean, orderly. The children, that I have observed, pay attention & acknowledge the school rules. I volunteer, as often as possible, and so do many other parents and grand-parents. Their rate of volunteers is exceptional and impressive! All of this is based on the outstanding leadership of the Principal, which filters throughout the school!

I went to this school many moons ago, and my son began 3rd grade here last year. My experience has been very positive. The staff is friendly and have gone the extra mile. The teachers are responsive and always willing to talk. My son became very involved and were looking forward to the upcoming school year.

Oakknoll is a very good school. There are many enrichment opportunities for students, and it is a clean safe environment for children to learn. Parents are invited to participate and do.

This is NOT the school I would have chosen for my son. The staff is NOT friendly, the principal smiles but would not greet or speak to parents unless spoken to first. High turn over for teachers.Newly hired assistance principal as no people skills and clearly can not and will not communicate with parents. It seems this is the school where all first year teachers are shipped. This is not the school you would want to send your child to, unless you are willing to devote seven hours a day monitoring your child academic development in school.

The minute that you walk into the school you know that you are in the wrong place. Although my experience has been different during the afternoon, the morning staff is rude and unfriendly. It is sad to say, but the comment that was made last year- regarding the administration and the verbal abuse of the children- still rings true today. I have personally witnessed children that were bullied to learn. Some of the teachers are just horrible and should not be allowed to step into the classroom. If you have the option to send your child to another school DO SO!

Had a reputation of being a wonderful school years ago; however, now it lacks structure, quality teacher training, and cohesiveness. High teacher turnover and on many occasions, I have witnessed teachers inappropriately scolding students. It appears to be a few dedicated teachers remaining.

This has been a wonderful school for our 5 year old in kindergarten. It employs a very diverse faculty and staff that makes educating the children their number one priority.

My daughter had a very positive expirience at this school. In her 1st grade class there were only 14 kids!! they did a pretty good job of keeping parents informed. On PTA days there was always a volunteer parent handing out flyers about the next PTA event.
