I visited my child for lunch a few times and on today's visit I personally witnessed more than one teacher yelling at children in the cafeteria. One teacher was yelling at children who were standing in a line. These are kindergarteners. They are not robots. The teachers should be pleased that they are standing single file and not jumping all over the place. I felt concerned immediately. If a teacher feels comfortable screaming and also belittling kids with her comments WHILE a few parents were seated 2 feet away eating lunch with their kids..imagine what happens behind the closed doors of the classroom. I intend on eating lunch with my children a few times each week and record this behavior on my cell phone. Disgusting!! How can you groom a child to have good self esteem and proper self identity if they are being broken down by their teacher for 8 hours. The school is in poor condition and the staff's behavior matches. -Parent of 2 student who attend this school

We attended 2014. Starting the year off we had nothing but issues. MY CHILDREN'S TEACHERS WERE WONDERFUL. BUT The front office isn't very welcoming and the person they put in charge of the fundraising and other events is rude and disrespectful to parents. She went even as far as to tell me that they believe that parents are a distraction. The principle is not very good at parent interaction. VERY UNORGANIZED IN ALMOST EVERYTHING EXAMPLE AWARD DAYS AND FIELD DAYS. I would recommend people to try to do the school choice and do not go to this school.

My chidd has been a student here for two years she is in second grade. The educators are great the only reason I took away one star is due to the disiplinary problems that my chid has encounter from other childre, but that is not the schools fault rather that of the parents. Oakland is great they are truly concerned for the kids!

The teachers we have had at this school have gone above and beyond with our two boys. We have one child that is gifted and needs advanced materials and he is provided everything he needs and more. Our second son is dyslexic and the school has worked so hard to follow the laws and provide him what he needs. He is now excelling thankfully because the teachers at this school have gone above and beyond to try to help him and provide him with what he needs to succeed.

My son is in 4th Grade and this was his first year here. He ABSOLUTLY LOVES THIS SCHOOL! He has been challenged in every way and has brought up his grades and LOVES it. He never wants to miss a day of school because he is afraid of the learning he might miss. His teacher really shows that she cares about her class and there learning. Im glad we will be at this school next year!

My younger sister (she's entering High School at Luella this year) attended K - 5 at Oakland, my oldest daughter will be in the 5th grade and my son will be starting Kindergaten this year and we have all had nothing but good experiences at Oakland! The administration, office staff, teachers, support staff...everyone is so wonderful! I can tell by the postive, caring attitudes that are always presented that my children are in the best possible place!

My first child entered Oakland Elementary in 2008, I was very impressed with the open communication style of her kindergarten teacher. Every effort he made to keep parents informed with all the upcoming changes. I Love the School, I loved the Kindergarten Teacher and the staff is most helpful for parents of newly enrolled students.

I have been in the Oakland district for 5+ years. My kids have always had great teachers. I have seen the administration make every effort to improve scores and encourage the parents to become very involved. I have had no complaints.

This is my child's first year at Oakland Elementary and so far I have been impressed. We were recently rezoned from Luella elementary to Oakland and were concerned about the difference in test scores. So far Oakland has been great. The teachers are very enthusiastic and the principle encourages parental involvement. The school's population is small compared to Luella and I feel that is great for the teachers as well as the students.
