I like the teachers and princial at Oakland. However, this year the teachers seem to get carried away with the point system and forget that these are JUST kids. As an adult, I forget things all the time. My daughter forgot her fork. She then ate her lunch with her hands because they would take away her points. Also, the after school program was great at first but then the teacher had no tolerance for questions. It became a child care center instead of homework help center. Im glad this year is almost over.
I feel that Oakland Elem is one of the best schools in Charleston County. The principal is a great one. Some of the teachers are there for a check, but others are there for the students. Overall Oakland would be my pick for elementary schools in Charleston.
