Incomparable in terms of academics, enrichment, teacher quality and class sizes. The negative? If you or your child wishes to fit in socially its best to be rich, white, brilliant, athletic and socially gifted. Oakwood is a Mecca for over achievers. Normal folks may be happier elsewhere.

Wow, Harman is above and beyond any other public school. The classes are small and all parents are involved. They have spanish, arts, music starting in 1st grade. My son has loved all his teachers. Highly recommend!

Harman is an outstanding school because everyone involved brings out the best in each other. The district is extremely well-managed; the administration and teachers are dedicated, empowered and responsive, the parents provide endless support at the school and raise ambitious, well-behaved kids. The students have an excellent attitude toward learning and are welcoming to new people. If your child's education comes first, you will be thrilled with Harman!

Harman is top notch. Both my girls went here as well as my entire family.

Harman Elementary has been an incredible early education experience for my children. There is a low student to teacher ratio, and kids are allowed to progress at their own pace. Not to mention, there are a multitude of opportunities available, both in class and as extracurricular programs that allow a child to expand his intelligence and experiences. It is located in an entirely walking community and people are always looking out for each other. I wouldn't want my kids anywhere else.

The Oakwood city schools are fantastic. The parent-teacher involvement is huge and parents have a strong voice in the educational choices offered to their children. Though sometimes divisive (the debate over traditional vs. integrated math took two years to resolve and led to the resignation of a very fine school board superintendent), the community prides itself on its schools and its involvement. Last year we voted to spend an additional 20 Million to upgrade each school (more classrooms, ADA compliant) and the results are truly amazing - integrating architecture from 1908 to the present. Spanish language instruction from 1 - 12, computers in each classroom, full slate of extracurricular activities, etc. 100% graduation rate and 99% attend college.
