White Oak Elementary School5

This school has a phenomenal preschool & developmental preschool program that gets children ready for the next 5 grades in the school. My son was reading at the end of one year in preschool and has performed well ever since. They have a strong belief in teaching and embodying good social emotional behavior. One of their mottos is, "Treat people right [and] do the right thing."
White Oakes is a great school! The staff is very caring and helpful with each child. They were ranked in the top ten percent of IN schools this year. My children love the programs that they have, such as art class. The school also has alot of extra events for students and parents, such as reading night and movie nights each year.
My child has been involved in the advanced program and seems to be benefiting from it. He is also being encouraged to exceed his personal limitations. The only improvement that could be made is for the schools to stop teaching children to pass the tests that score the school worthiness, and start teaching children applicable skills.
In Avon all the elementary schools are outstanding! I have been absolutely thrilled with the education my first and third grader have received at White Oak. The principal and administration make it their duty to know and address all the students by name. I am sorry to have move and leave all these wonderful teachers and staff behind! Kathy D
