Concord Ox-Bow Elementary School 4

I work very closely with the school. We bought our house when our oldest was an infant knowing that this was the school district best for our family. Now that our oldest is enrolled at OxBow I know this is still the best decision. However, there has been some concerns I have as a parent. Some issues I have addressed about my child's education, things that were continuously promised to be corrected but were not done so after many failed attempts. But overall, staff is amazing and accommodates to all their students. Many teachers go way above and beyond for their students! They continue to work despite being able to retire because they love what they do. Which makes me feel good as a parent knowing my child's mind is in amazing hands. Very few teachers need to be more organized and understanding when it comes to students realizing that not all children are "wired" the same. OxBow also has additional staff to help spend extra time with students with special needs/extra help individually. Thus, creates a better learning environment for all varieties of student needs to succeed. Many sub teachers are permitted paraprofessionals that already work with the school on a daily basis and know the students well. Other sub teachers are permitted, they work closely with the school whether it be PTO or volunteering time during school hours. Aside my view on not having a problem corrected with my child's academics I would say, without a doubt, this is the best Elementary school within Concord!!

I'm a parent in the Oxbow school area. I would say that the staff at the school in very helpful. My daughter is 9 and my son is 5, my daughter has only had one teacher that I really didn't care for. My son had a slow start and is getting use to the full school day. Since he's had the chance I feel is doing better. The Teacher that he had really gave him the chance. If I had one thing to say which was not so positive it would be that they do seem to have alot of sub-teachers.

My two children have attended Oxbow this year and we have really enjoyed it. Teachers are great. The only downfall I would say is that my son had alot of substitutes throughout his year there.

OxBow encourages parent participation, and I have always been free to visit my children's classroom or have lunch with them. The teachers are very talented and caring, my children have only had one dud. Bullying is not allowed, and the school makes good efforts to promote a warm community. I would score administration a bit lower. I don't care for the constant parade of a different substitute teacher every day when the regular teacher is absent for extended periods. I have sat and listened to the children being constantly cajoled by the staff at lunch time to be quiet and sit still, after they've already been sitting still all morning long.

All three of my sons attended OxBow. They have an excellent, caring staff. I could never have found a better place for my sons to be educated. OxBow is the best of the best!

I'm very pleased with OxBow. The teachers and other staff are very good. Their communication skills far exceed any that I have ever seen in a public school. The teachers are always accessible for the students and parents and I couldn't be happier with the school overall. After moving to the area to remove my children from the South Bend school system, my experience with Ox Bow and CJH has confirmed that I made the right decision.
