My son has ADHD with trauma and is in the 4th grade. Have spoken with the school guidance counselor and with his teachers and they have made his problems worse. I am currently trying to get him counseling and told the counselor about the RIF meeting and she said that the advice given was not good advice and I have been disappointed about the fact that the promises made have not been kept by the school. On the other hand for my youngest is in 4K and she is doing well. For kids with no problems they are great but they do not handle children that have special needs or problems very well.

I find the school to be pretty good. I wish they would have a foreign language department so the younger grades can learn a language. I had a problem with a teacher/counsler calling my child lazy in front of her peers because she did not want to give out books and walk around collecting them before school started. When she asked the coounsler if it was okay for her to quite she was told No because her 9 weeks was not up. I was not aware that she was chosen to do this job nor give permission for my child to partake in such activity. She is 8 and gets up very early to catch the bus whose an A and B student. She is kind,sweet and doesn't need to be called names by a counsler whose suppose to be a role model and not a bully.

I wrote a review in 2008 when my son was in the 1st grade, he's now in the 5th and I am still very much please with Oakgrove. Academically he's doing great and has come such a long way. All of his teachers has challenged him to lear. Every year it gets better and better and he has learned so much. His 5th grade teachers are great and Ms. Price is still smiling and greeting the parents and the students. We have a great Oakgrove family and I remained blessed to be apart of Oakgrove.

I went to Oak Grove and now my daughter attends. They are more like a family than a school.

My daughter attends Oak Grove elementary, and I could not be happier. I volunteer every week and get to interact with the administration. The principal is frequently visiting the classrooms and is always greeting the parents every morning in car line. I have many friends whose children attend different schools among Lexington One District so I can compare stories, and I could not be happier with the way things run at Oak Grove. I have heard complaints from other schools that their children are taking naps or being put in front of the TV to just watch movies during the day. I am confident that my daughter is getting a top notch education as well as feeling safe in her environment. As a small school with an awesome facility, Oak Grove truly is the best little secret in Lexington One.

OGE truly is the best school in the area. The administrative staff is very visible and knows each student's name. The teachers are caring and supportive and go the extra mile for the children. Safety and security are top notch and I know each day that my child is learning in a secure environment. Oak Grove is a small, close knit school that has a comunity feel. It is rated a 10 for a reason-because all who know Oak Grove Love Oak Grove. It is a top notch school thanks to all the faculty, staff, parents and students.

My daughter is in Kindergarten at Oak Grove. She loves everything about the school. I love everything about the school. She loves going to school everyday. The teachers teach to the level of each child and ensures every child is challenged regardless of their current level.

My son is in the 1st grade and this is his first year at OGE and I love this school. I volunteer quite often and this is one of the best things that I could have ever done. His teacher has great order and structure in the classroom. Her teaching style is wonderful. My son has and is learning so much, I see such a difference in him academically and I say thanks to his teacher for working with me to see that my son gets the best education. Everyone is just so involved, it's such a pleasure to be apart of the OGE family. Mrs. Price is such a friendly and involve principle, she's there every morning to greet the students and the parents and she's always pleasant. I'm so blessed to know that when I send my son to OGE that he's getting the best education.

OGE is the best ! I have two boys that have attended Oak Grove since K-5. One is now at the middle school, in 7th grade. The youngest is a 5th grader, still at OGE. Both have had the best experience at Oak Grove. I wanted to point out the fact that OGE seems to have the best cafeteria staff. I eat with my children often at school. The ladies call themsleves 'The Lunch Bunch'. A bunch of sweet ladies,they are. They always have a great salad and hot bar for the teachers, and any parents who want to come and eat. Thank you, Oak Grove, for all that you do for our children.

Our son started Oak Grove last year and we LOVE it. The staff is wonderful and so involved with the students. The principal, Mrs. Price does a great deal to encourage parental involvement and make learning fun (Literacy Night, Math and Science Night, etc.) The school provides a challenging learning environment, but it also has a small-town feel. It is the best kept secret in Lexington One!

Oak Grove Elementary is an excellent school with dedicated and knowledgable teachers. They prepare each student for a world of changing technology by continuously up grading and improving their own training in the field of computer technology. The faculty as well as the support staff are professional educators that take their jobs very seriously but never forget the child's emotional and social needs as well. My children have excelled in higher level education due to their solid elementary education at Oak Grove. I am primarily a parent of three students but also have taught at Oak Grove for many years. Our administrators continually challenge us to become better educators through their guidance, vision and incredible compassion for the human factor related to teaching. Oak Grove is a wonderful place to teach and learn. It's the jewel of the district being the smallest and best kept secret! Word has gotten out!

This is my daughter's first year at Oak Grove. My husband, who holds a PhD and I, have been extremely impressed with the quality of education at this school. Her kindergarten teacher is very creative in her educational approach. She is also very caring and has hastily responded to any questions or concerns I have posed. I have heard it said that Oak Grove is the 'best little secret in Lexington', and I hardily agree!

We moved to the Lexington area in 2005 and my son attended Oak Grove Elementary for his 5th grade year. Coming from an 'mega' elementary school (in another state) that was rated one of the ten best in the country, we were a little concerned about how our son would do at Oak Grove and the Lexington 1 school district in general. We found Oak Grove to be a wonderful school. He was academically challenged and provided every opportunity to be creative so he could continue his love of learning. I would recommend this school to any parent who is new to this area. Don't be fooled by it's small size or it's location off the beaten path. It provides a wonderful education by teachers and other staff who care so much for the children. I encourage any parent to check the test scores for this school and compare to other schools and districts. You will easily see that Oak Grove is truly one of the best. We, as parents, could not be more pleased with the education that our son received at Oak Grove Elementary.

I am not a parent of a child who goes to this school, but I did substitute teach in this school and found an overwhelmingly caring and supportive staff there. I have been in other schools in the district as well as other districts in the area, and none of them compare to the experience I had here.

Oak Grove is a community school. The atmosphere is excellent, like one big family. My children received an excellent eduation from caring, competent teachers. The office staff is friendly and efficient. I was never concerned about safety issues. The cafeteria staff and housekeeping staff care about children, too. A high quality school!
