I am considering enrollment of grandkids into this neighborhood school and interested in the values and teachings.
Not good.I know a parent that had to take a student out of school.You may get made fun of because of your race
My child has attended OPTS since Kindergarten. She is now in the 4th grade. I feel it is one of the best elementary schools in the Cols City School system. Her teachers have been great. I have always felt welcome there.
I have a 1st grader in this school who is really doing great in all of her subjects. All of the teachers are wonderful and really care about there students. I would recomend this school to anyone is looking for a good school.
Academically, OPTS is great. It's nice to have my children challenged. They're learning a lot. Their test scores have improved. Personally my children have not fit in. Some fellow students aren t open-minded about differences. This has caused a few problems. Some teachers are great at addressing problems. However, you can tell some simply don't care or don't want to offend anyone. There are also a couple of teachers that lack with communication to parents. Other teachers are awesome with it. As a parent, I m pleased. I think most of the staff is great. Although we ve had some problems, things are improving. I knew there was going to be more work assigned but I might have chosen differently if I knew how much.
The numbers don't lie! OPTS is awesome. Out of 94 elementary schools in the district- OPTS scored in the top 10 in all categories. Hard work from the students and staff pays off!
a very good school if you want your child to be challenged. it help my kids improve in many subjects that i thought that i would normally get a tutor
Oakland Park is an outstanding school. I am currently raising my sisters children while she is overseas fighting for our nation. The children absolutely love their teachers and they look forward to school. I do find that the school is challenging to them and they love taking on the challenge.
My oldest child attends this school and I have already put in my application for my youngest. This school provide you with a welcome feeling right from the beginning. I particularly like the structure and the uniform policy. I know the prinicipal cares for each of these children and even knows them by name. The teachers work hard to help the students succeed and have a genuine love for this job. For me elementary wise, it's Oakland Park or burst.
Both of my children attended Oakland Park Traditional School. We were fortunate that my youngest was admitted in kindergarden. We have been very pleased with their education. The staff seems to truly have a heart for the kids. OPTS is a very traditional environment with structure and rules in place. The kids know what is expected of them and are encouraged in a very positive setting to live up to those expectations. I would highly recommened OPTS to any parent wants their child to have a conservative education in a traditional classroom.
