I have 2 daughters that attended the Oak Grove High School. My oldest daughter graduated early and was punished for being intelligent and motivated. The principal and school board would not let her attend her senior prom or walk with her class at graduation. In which I think is ridiculous. Money is the motive. If the kids graduate early, the school loses money because they don t attend the rest of the year. Another problem with the school is bullying. My daughter was bullied by a girl and eventually a fist fight ensued. When I went to speak with the principal about it, he just wanted to sweep in under the rug. My daughter and her bully were suspended, but he bullying didn't stop when they returned. The principal didn't want to deal with it, so I had to take my daughter out of the school. I would not recommend the high school. It's a shame because the elementary and middle schools are great.

Im a student and I think our High school needs to do better with the bullying. This year it got way outta control. The worse is the junior class this year. Many parents have complained and hopefully something will get done soon.

Oak Grove is a good community and we moved here because we attend church here. The only concern I have with this school district is there seems to be a lack of parent involment not being the parents fault. I moved from a school district that encouraged parent involment and I feel as though if you arent a person of higher influence in the town they really dont want your help. We have been here for 3 years now and I still feel the same way. I also just want to say that when I come to pick up my children I feel as though they should know where they are. I had this problem when picking up my child and she was nowhere to be found. The principle was less than helpful. I was thinking that my daughter was missing. The elementary needs to care more about our kids.

Oak Grove needs to improve it's academic program. This school focuses way to much on sports. The middle school at Oak Grove needs to improve the consistancy with it's disciplinary issues.

Oak Grove is a good school. Like others it could be better. Academics and work effort could both improve. Parent involvement needs to improve in the academic and work area. Extracurricular areas have great parent support. The staff is improving over the years. Taxes are low and probably should go up to help build a new primary school and reduce the students per teacher. Also the teachers pay needs to go up to keep the good teachers. The community is generally blue collar and is a great small town even though it is close to Kansas City.
