Top notch education! We are thrilled with the course offerings, quality electives, and challenging curriculum!

Having had children in public, private and catholic schools, we chose Oakwood based on its high test scores. We have been sorely disappointed in all aspects of the Oakwood School District. Overall, it is vastly over-rated. Academically, my child is not challenged. What amounts to a great deal of homework does not equal quality learning or instruction. My 7th grade child is in honors math and the content is the same as what she learned in 5th grade private school. Teachers, as well as administration, do not return emails. Staff should understand a quality student is much more than a higher standarized test result. Most shocking is the rampant use of alcohol and drugs. Oakwood School Distrcit has the HIGHEST percentages of alcohol and drug use of all the surrounding districts - it was announced to parents during general orientation. Socially, the air of entitlement that flows and is supported thought-out this small, pretentious community makes The Oakwood School System unwelcoming. Cliques and bullying are not only prevelent, they are supported by the parents and ignored by the administration. I will not be recommending The Oakwood School District.

Great teachers, great programs, and the school takes resources seriously directing them towards the kids. The school has been exceptional interacting with a strong tradition of parent teacher involvement which leads to a strong bond and involvement on many levels between the students teachers and the kids.

Consistently one of the best ranked schools - not just in Ohio, but in the nation. AP courses, the opportunity to attend local colleges and universities as a junior or senior, but missing, unfortunately the IB.
