Supports LD students: Strongly disagree


- a
I have never seen any evidence of this, which is unfortunate. Would suggest that students with learning issues avoid this school. Middle school is very demanding with little support and an abundance of academic responsibilities.

Effective school leaders: Disagree


- a
Good teaches were pushed out and the head of school is mediocre at best with exceedingly poor communication skills.


Develops character: Neutral


- a
They certainly try in this area, although not sure of the success in this area.

Teacher effectiveness: Disagree


- a
Poor morale, high turnover which caused a decrease in the overall quality of the school.

Amount of homework: Neutral


- a
Too much homework for middle school students.




- a
This school experiences a great deal of teacher and staff turnover. The middle school has hired all new teachers the last few years, which has greatly reduced the quality of the education. The school projects a happy environment whereas the reality is quite different. Overall poor staff morale and high tuition rates, where parents are billed repeatedly for books, trips, etc. Stay away and find a school that actually practices what is preaches.

If you want to see how education "should" be, take a tour of Oak Meadow. You will find happy teachers, happy students and happy parents. After our first tour of Oak Meadow, I knew this was how I wanted my child educated. Just watching how engaged and self directed the students were told me they were doing something "different". It's not often you walk into a classroom of 14 students and not one looks up because they are so engaged in their lessons, but what impressed me the most was speaking to the kind, compassionate and intellectually curious students. Nothing sells a school like successful graduates and Oak Meadow students are not only prepared for the rigors of academia, but for the rigors of LIFE.

Develops character: Strongly agree


- a
This school is based on the Montessori principles that have been tested and proven effective around the world. Peace education, a love of humanity and respect of the natural world are at its core. Students develop honesty, integrity and fairness throughout their interactions with others and in their work.


Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a
I trust the teachers and they have good judgment in selecting lessons, and activities that are engaging for children at all class levels. The work they bring home, and the subjects we talk about in our family show the hard work of these skilled teachers.

Amount of homework: Agree


- a
There is a lot of homework in middle school. Students have to develop good time management skills. Homework appears to be interesting and not terribly tedious. In elementary school, they could have more homework but it does give time for families to do enrichment activities like music, or sports.
