Oaklyn is holding on by a loose thread and unfortunately the children are being cheated out of a quality education compared to their counties peers. Whether it's because the school houses Pre-k to 9 I have no clue but not enough people are paying attention to the severe lack of educational standards. 1st - 3rd grade are doing lower level work and are not prepared to join their 4th- 6th grade peers to their board of educations own testing & admissions at the level other schools are learning. 7th - 9th believe they are being prepared to move on to Collingswood high school when in actuality it is the Woodlynne & Collingswood students that are bringing in the higher test scores and are more prepared. There is simply no longer a place for this school, maybe consolidating with Collingswood will make their own superintendent care more about a school in his own district. Education should be a priority, things like Omaysc, Oef, Pta and others are mere distractions to bigger problems. I don't know why a reviewer went on about ice cream socials & family fun nights, it has no place in a school if your child is behind. Why not put the money somewhere beneficial like the childrens education.

Administartion is down right bad an have no clue what they are doing,. The principal sits on her thrown telling her parents that they have no rights when it comes to their children,. the school is so far behind in technology in what other schools around the ares are teaching,.. Having the grammar school along with the jr high is strange at times. one talent show i saw a jr high girl hanging on a jr high guy sitting right next to a 1st grader, the jr high kids have the same teachers for all three years they are there so there is no diversary,.i find the extra things that the OMAYSC advents are rather boring and poorly run,.once you graduate from here you get to attend Collingswood high school which is just as bad educationally,.(Collingswood like Oaklyn) if you are adverage or need special need help forget it,. you get left by the waste side,. The administartion likes fitting everyone into the same educational box,. I found no reason in joining the PTA,. there is nothing that you get from it,. same people have been running it from year to year and don't like outsiders helping unless it is something that as a whole does not want to do,.

Oaklyn Public School has excellent teachers who really care about their students. The PTA and OMAYSC as well as OEF (Oaklyn Education Foundation) collaborate to provide Oaklyn students extra opportunities for technology, dances, gym nights, ice cream socials, talent show, assemblies, and family fun nights. The curriculum is now the same as Collingswood School District. Parents can be very involved and stay on top of their children's progress on a daily basis through Genesis computer system which posts personal attendance and grades. There is also a very good music and art program. Extra-curricular sports are offered through Collingswood School Fistrict for grades 6-9. It is the only preK-9th grade school in the state.

I wasn't going to write anything until i saw the reviews quick were not what I have had with this school at all.When it comes to students with disabilities this is the last place you want to go. A parent has to fight for the extra services that my child needs and the school wll not give. I have two special needs children attending this school and I hate it so much. the school will not let me take them out to go to a speciality school that would fit their education better. instead i have to have my kids suffer with the education they are getting now until i can find them a way out. Teachers are nice and they really try but the school hold a lot of them back.
