This school does great things for our kids. It provides a great learning environment. The teachers all work hard to provide a caring and successful school experience.

Oceanlake is a great school! The teachers are all caring hardworking people. With the limited resources due to being in a low income, rual area, Oceanlake accomplishes a lot for our kids. During the 2014-2015 academic year, PE and music has been brought back thanks to the principal writing and being awarded a grant. We all know school funding is too low, but the staff goes above and beyond to compensate. Oceanlake simply needs additional, caring support from the community. For example, more parental involvement is needed for OPG (Oceanlake Parent Group), SMART (Start Making A Reader Today), the Backpack Program, and Let There Be Arts.

My child is verbally bullied and has been for years. I have been trying to get the school to address this issue for a long time. This year my child has a wonderful teacher who , in fact is trying to educate and address the bullying issue. BUT the principal in fact says she doesn't like to use the word bullying and summarily dismisses me when I report what goes on continually with my child. My child hates school , becomes physically ill , and sees a therapist just to try and tolerate school.

this is a good school if you don't care who picks your child up at the end of the day this is from personal experience they sent my child home with somebody who was not on the pick up list so I guess these teachers don't care much the kid goes home with at the end of the day as long as they get to go home besides all that when I tried to bring up the issue of my kidsbeing picked up by an unauthorized pick up her answer was well at the end of the day car drives up and says I'm here to pick her and they let her go the principal who told me they just send the kids home with whoever pulls up and says they're here to pick them up her name is Miss Wilcox she pretty much did not care that my kid was picked up by an unauthorized pick up crazy in my mind

No music, PE, art, 30+ students in shared grade classrooms, ok, budget cuts. Have the parents been asked to volunteer and lend a hand? No. Did the 5th/6th graders get spelling, social studies, science? Hardly. She finally came home in March happily saying she finally received spelling work, and that the SUB handed it out. The teachers are not putting the work they should be into their curriculum, nor do they have the time to. District requires students to read for 2-3 hours a day alone during class time, and 2 math sessions a day, in order to pass the OAKS tests. They retest several times in order to pass all students, and once passed, are placed in more academically challenging classes. My daughter was moved in APRIL. 2 months before schools out, very behind the rest of the students in their coursework. A kick me sign was placed on her back, and the teacher's response was to ask the bully not to waste her post-its. Too much time is being spent on passing the state tests. Too little time is being spent correcting behavior, an unruly class should be quickly reprimanded, especially in a class of that size. We will not send our kids here next year.

Recently I attended a meeting as an advocate for a child and I was completely disgusted at the staff's total disregard for the child's needs and the concerns of the parent. It was implied to the parent that all the child's problems were in her head. A letter from the child's doctor was submitted and disregarded as not important. The child's therapist was in attendance and she was also disregarded. Never before have I seen such gross abuse of power.

For the 2009/2010 school yr my son was in 5th grade. I was told by his teacher at the end of the school yr that he was put thru to 6th grd because the final decision wasn't up to him. They put my son into 6th grd because they had to, even though his test scores were low.

My daughter is in a 1st/2nd split class, and I couldn't be happier with her teacher and the various activities offered in class. They have music time, art, and already 2 field trips! For a small coastal community, I am not disappointed.

Oceanlake has a wonderful staff of teachers and a great principal. The unfortunate situation in Lincoln City is funding. The classrooms are overcrowded and we never know if the children will have music or physical education courses. The disappointment I have is with the lack of support from a retirement/vacation community, not from the school or staff.

There was 40 kids in my daughters 3rd grade class this year. I would not recommend this school. The teachers are great, but due to large class sizes and budget cuts from the district the kids are suffering. No PE, music, art classes or any sports are offered as well.

There are nearly 40-45 kids per class at Oceanlake.Due to state budget cuts.There is not enough room in the lunch room for all the children to eat so they are constantly kept together with their own classroom. There is a skateboard park right across from the school that is unsupervised.Kids as young as 9 can go there to smoke and learn about gang habits!
