Oxford Elementary School2

If your child has no special accommodations, this is a good school. However, I have a high functioning autistic child who went here for 3rd and 4th grade and had things in his IEP the school didn't do. They kept saying "there's no resources for that." My son's general education teacher was amazing, and speech path was amazing, but he couldn't get the team he needed to succeed. If your child is behind in school, or needs special education teacher or resource room, I would NOT recommend going to this school. I've switched schools for 5th grade, but if I had it to do over would've gone to Lakeville which is the ASD-Autism Spectrum designated school and they have Spanish. OES has chinese which was unrealistic for my son to participate in being that he was so far behind in English. Clear Lake is another elementary school in the Oxford district, that has chinese, but is the CI-Cognitive Impaired school. The parking lot is a challenge if you drive your child.
The financial decision to stop using paper planners has been detrimental not only to open communication between the classroom and home but also to student accountability. When my child was using a planner he took much more responsibility in making sure that his homework was done and signed off on.
