I agree with the review that the people who belong to the Parent Teacher organization are rude. They do not welcome others that want to help. The school is underfunded because the community does not value quality education. It is a poor rural community with a large percentage of the students living below the poverty level. The administration and teachers do the best they can with very little. There are lots of behavioral issues and parents who are unable to manage their personal lives; their children are left to fend for themselves. There are only a handful of children that I would let my daughter play with. We are moving are daughter after this year.

My child goes to oak flat. I love the school the teachers and principal are very helpful and supportive. The school does many things to involve the families and keep the children involved. The bully system the school has in place is great and helps the children a lot. My child is proud of her school and we are staying in the district for these reasons

I am a teacher at Oak Flat, and I absolutely love my job. The principal is supportive of her teachers and students, and leads us all with firm, yet fair discipline. There are several things for students to do, including joining the play, the Quiz Bowl team, being in the Bulldog buddies program, and before school programs. The entire school has an environment of respect and high expectations, and our students and teachers regularly rise to the multitude of challenges that they are presented with. Our high test scores prove our dedication to student achievement, and our school is consistently achieving at that level. There is no other school in the district or the surrounding area that I would want to teach at, or that I would want my children going to.

My children attend oakflat and the teachers are very nice, but the leadership in the school is very very poor. You have a principal who will yell at a teacher in front of parents and does not feel that blue collar workers are important. Also she tells parents she likes not to put their child in a private school, that if they stay there she will cater to them and their child. This is not acceptable under any circumstances. And i feel they need a principal who cares about the students, parents. They should also have more things for the students to do.
