We transferred to this school based on community feed back & the "history" of the school. We were very disappointed with the segregation found in the school. If you not from the area your treated like an "outsider" and it is through out the school, students & teachers alike. As parent's who are willing & able to be involved no committees were welcoming to us. My child was not challenged at all & breezed through the year. No homework given. It felt like a wasted year academically. We are currently looking at private schools with strong family & community involvement and a better curriculum.

Me myself has a daughter that goes there & her teacher made her go 2 days without getting to eat lunch also she was put on the wrong bus also her bus was pretty late one evening & the school couldn't even call us to let us know what was going on plus other issues we have had & same for bunker hill they just act as they don't have any concerns as far as my oldest daughters education so we're not happy with either school!

Oxford has something planned for you to get involved in almost every week! Then you in turn learn who the teachers are and find yourself in a real since of community, or feel friendly with everyone you see!

I moved my daughter to Oxford because the teachers and staff were more caring and had more concern for the children than her other school. She has really improved in her reading and overall skills since I have moved her. I drive her to and from school, out of district, but it is worth it. She is so happy to be there and we are too.

I have been teaching at Oxford for the last six years. I am so pleased to be a part of such an amazing school. Mr. Honeycutt is an amazing leader that challenges his teachers to reach their personal best. He is engaged with both his staff and the children. Through his guidance Oxford is changing daily. Oxford is bless to have four of the most amazing speciality teachers in this area. Children are engaged in drama, art, music, and PE. Oxford is also fortunate to be the home of a cluster class that serves children that are academically at risk, Mr. Hefner our assistant principal also has a view of the future supporting Oxford in events such the Clairemont Run. I can't imagion teaching for any two administrators that I would respect more. Respectfully, The EC Cluster Teacher :)

I am extremely happy with the school, faculty and extensive activities of Oxford. They not only provide a warm and inviting atmosphere for students and parents, but also have a top-notch curriculum, and great teachers. It's also a very beautiful & clean school. They not only provide stimulating learning and fun, but help the needy, hold fundraisers for heart disease and diabetes to name a couple and assisted the family of a sick student with some funds. They are just awesome!!
