I have two kids that attend this school and it has been nothing short of excellent. The staff members are very involved and do great with the kids. The facility is clean and only a few years old. Bottom line this is an excellent school and one of the best in the county.
I have two children that attend this school. A 5th grader and a 2nd grader. My children love the school and I love seven oaks. We have a strong community bond and a strong PTA. Parents are very involved and the staff keeps the children engaged. A lot has changed since the new administration but all in all their have been good positive changes. Seven oaks is the first STEAM school in Maryland and the new principal has been recognized for the changes he has made. The kids are eager to learn. My experience at seven oaks has been nothing but positives.
Seven Oaks is a safe, clean and forward thinking educational institution! Great faculty, staff and parents!
seven oaks elementary is a wonderful school.my 8 and 10 year old attend it.the faculty is respectable and the teachers are a great help and teach new ways to solve problems every day.
Seven Oaks Elementary is truly a great school. This is my child 3rd year there and we are truly happy. I can say EVERYONE that work there are great and truly care about each child.
I have no comment at this time as my grandchildren just started at this school 2 weeks ago.
This school is incredible! The principal has a clear vision of what a true arts-integrated STEAM school is. His leadership and the dedication of the highly-qualified staff are bringing the school into the 21st century. Any child would be benefitted by attending Seven Oaks. They truly care about the needs of ALL children. It would be great to see the parent support piece of the program grow even stronger. This school is going places!
I give the school a 4 out of 5 mainly because of the new principle. As in he is the only reason I would hesititate on giving the last star. The last principle was wonderful and you would see her after school walking along the main road, and actually conversing with the students and parents. She was always personable and friendly. If there was an issue, she knew how to handle it at the lowest level. I was proud to say that I was never called into her office for any of my kids in the first 5 years with this school. In the last 4 months of school this year, I was in the new principle's office at least 3 times. Now this is partially my son's fault and partially because the teacher (who had just returned from baby leave and didn't seem to care to get to know her students after missing the first half of the year), but while in the office, I found his tougher than you attitude and gruff manner off-putting and unprofessional. Aside from the one teacher (who should probably just stay at home if that is what she wants) and the new principle, I would recommend this school to anyone moving to this area just keep your nose clean and avoid the principle like the plague.
I really like the school, however I am not very impressed with the new principal that was placed at the school this year.This school was rated a 9 out of 10.
Hello Seven Oaks Parents, Can someone please provide an update on how the school is? I am considering moving to the area. Thank you
My son has been going for the last 2 years. He is now in 1st grade (soon to be 2nd) and LOVES IT!!! The teachers stay in constant communication. (Huge S/O to Mrs. Church & Mrs. Ganey!) There is plenty of parent participation, The staff is friendly and secuirty to get into the shool is AWESOME!!! THEY Scan ID's!!! The curriculum is the best I've seen and when our family moves (husband in the military) this school will surely be missed!!
My daughter attends kindergarten here and it has been a wonderful experience. I have had the opportunity to work with her class on several occasions and each time the teacher was very warm and welcoming. We are moving before the school year is up and my daughter is sad because she loves her school. I highly recommend Seven Oaks Elementary and hope that our experience with our new school is just as good.
My daughter attended pre-k this year. the school is amazing!! Her teacher was great and really seemed interested in her and all of the other students. She let me know when my child succeeded and when she needed a little extra guidance. The security is very well maintained and I felt very safe leaving my child. They have separate play areas for big and little children. Lots of family involvement activities.
Easily one of the top rated schools in Anne Arundel County and possibly Maryland. My 6 year old attends kindergarten here and raves about the teachers. Children start getting additional attention right from KG, not something you'd expect at all schools. In addition, the school facilities are relatively new and the principal is motivated to reach out to parents at parent teacher conferences. Children are encouraged to learn through various programs and there is, thankfully, a schoolunifrom policy. Overall, I'd give it 5 stars.
The school leadership (administration) is holding back this school. They do not understand the community and student population
The school is wonderful! My child has attended Seven Oaks for 3 years and we absolutely love it! They have the best most caring and professional staff and in general the students and parents seem to really care about education.
The staff is awesome! It is one of the best schools we've ever been a part of. The teachers love what they do and it shows. They have a very competent and caring staff. I use them as a standard to measure other schools and this may not be fair to the other schools. All children seem to enjoy going to school there. Mine definitely does.
