To finish off from my previous review since I am only allowed so much. I have noticed most of the teachers actually live in other towns so their children can go to better schools. This in itself, speaks very highly of the teachers and the district. In previous places we've lived teachers would bring their child to the district they worked in. While it's a personal choice, it does say a lot about how the teachers themselves feel about this district. The principal always comes off as rude when I see her. The PTO is nothing but a bunch of parents that personally know some of the teachers. They only communicate via a Facebook group from what I have heard. Not everyone is on Facebook as much as the people from this town are. I never receive any notifications about PTO meetings, only the various events they hold to raise money. As a parent that was always involved at my children's previous schools, this is concerning to me. Hearing from a couple of other parents that have inquired about being involved in the PTO they were told to turn to the Facebook group to see the notices. Had I read more reviews on this district, I would have looked at buying a house elsewhere.
Not impressed! The school places too much emphasis on test scores! Principle will not support parents when having an issue with teacher! Principle will side with teacher. Even when the evidence is against her. Kept my children in the school for one year, then transferred to a private school.
Mrs. Haberlin and her dedicated staff of professionals make Oak Hill Elementary an ideal place for a child to grow educationally. My children have received a tremendous amount of guidance from the teachers and staff. Expectations are high and it is reflected from test data and the events that take place at Oak Hill.
