Glad to have my kid go to Oakbrook school for his KG. He loved going to school and learned a lot. I can clearly see the development in his Interaction, character and skills. I wouldn't hesitate to send the next 2 years to this school until his 2nd grade.

OakBrook provides excellent educational services to my daughter who has been going there for her second year now (1st grader) . I am extremely pleased you are able to speak with the principal and or teachers to discuss any academic/needs that a parent may have about their child or for the community and have it rectified immediately and not afraid to implement change no matter if... It's not broken! Remember we need to focus on our child's future which in todays society continues to change everyday!

my daughter is in Kindergarten this year and i couldn't have picked a better school. The principal is very involved. I absolutely love her teacher. Wonderful fit. I have met wonderful parents so far and am enjoying being a tiny part of the PTO. Keep up the good work.

This school has a great staff, and exceptional principal. I've seen children go up to staff members with hugs and anticipation of going to that school! Just a wonderful atmosphere there!!!!

We love Oakbrook School. Everyone there is amazing. They truly are there in all aspects for our children. Our child has excelled this year and I credit alot of this to her teacher. They have wonderful classes and activities for our children. The parents who donate their time truly love to be there for our children. Everyone there including the non teaching staff are there totally for our children. Thank you to everyone at Oakbrook School in Wood Dale Illinois.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

Oops! We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Public and charter school test scores for most states come from the state Department of Education. The most common reasons we might not have this data are either that not enough students took the test or that the school was recently opened, and its scores have not yet been reported.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
