Aside from the principal, secretary, and one or two teachers this school's staff is awful. One teacher does the same assignment over and over again, my student gets extremely bored with doing the same thing all the time. Teachers are allowed to show too many movies instead of using that time to help struggling students. They also play music that is inappropriate for elementary kids. The staff has no problem being disrespectful or arguing with me about what is best for my child. They dont push children to strive for excellence. In a field trip permission slip to a college it actually said a reason for the trip was because most of the kids would never step foot inside a college classroom again. When the buses are late some of the children have to wait until first recess to eat their breakfast.

I can't believe Oregon trail is only a 5 star school! Seriously it deserves better than that. The staff don't just care about the students they know their names and are always happy to see them. While my child is kind of advanced, they have all sorts of different groups and activities for all skill levels. They make sure all students learn or have the opportunity to learn what they will need to know in the coming years, but they don't stop there. If a child already knows how to do something they teach them the next step. Overall an amazing school that my child and I love.

I would like to take this opportunity to say that both of my children went to school at Oregon Trail from Kindergarten through 6th grade, the quality of teaching and oustanding leadship of the pricipal were wonderful and my children will flourish because of this.
