I believe Oxhead Road school is an excellent school and I am very happy that my two children attend. The principal, Mrs. Seeh, is on top of all student matters and she is very fair. The teachers are involved, positive and have good parent communication. Furthermore, the school social worker was empathic and knowledgeable. They are a great team!

It is true that Mr. Scirica and Mr. Guttman were excellent principals, but Ms. Seeh is a wonderful addition. All of the staff in this school are warm and friendly. They make the children feel safe and special. With regard to the teachers that my children have had, I cannot say enough how wonderful they have been and continue to be, even after my kids have moved on. There is one teacher in particular that I feel is the greatest teacher on the planet, she knows who she is, because I tell her all of the time. Keep up the good work, Oxhead!

It a shame about this school! There was a great principal here. Since the change the school has gone down hill. Absolutely nothing goes on here. There is a lack of parent-teacher communication and the school looks depressing. There are to many pullouts with the special programs such as ELL and it does not benefit the other students or the classroom. The school is being run intothe ground. There needs to be change immediately!

Very unhappy with this school. My son is in first grade and doing less then he did in kindergarten. He gets very little homework, does very little math or writing. Very poor communication between teacher and parents. Would absolutely not recommend this school and will be moving my children to another district!

This school has taken such great strides since Mr. Guttman has become principal. The teachers are all amazing and doing the best they can to reach each and every student.
