The teachers at this school are great and really care for the students. The principal also provides great leadership and takes the time to get to know each of the students.

We moved here in 2002 and had a child in 2nd grade. When he began he was behind. The school and teachers went beyond our expectations to catch him up. Three years later and now we have 3 kids at the school. I cannot thank the teaching staff enough for all the work they have put into my children. I have 2 children with special learning needs and the school has stepped up to accomodate them. They recieve tutoring 4 mornings a week for 45 minutes. Having been in another state, we have the advantage of knowing what a true gem Oak Hill is. My children are all succeeding and love school. My now 5th grader is now lamenting leaving Oak Hill to move on to the middle school (across the street) but he will take with him fond memories of his time.

About the tests


In 2011-2012 Kansas used the Kansas State Assessments (KSA) to test students in grades 3 though 8, 11 and 12 in reading and math; in grades 4, 7, 11 and 12 in science; and in grades 6, 8 and 12 in history-government. The tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Kansas. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
