My daughter attends this school and I absolutely love it! She is is first grade but started attending in kindergarten and I couldn't ask for a better school. My son is 21y/o and he attended Oak Forest from 2nd to 5th grade and I was ever so satisfied with their level of teaching. I would recommend Oak Forest to any parent!

Don't send your child to this school, I posted a review back in 2010 and have since pulled my child out of Oak Forest Elem. The Sp Ed dept cheats on testing and since you can't attend those test there is no way to prove it. Oak Forest is stating that my child went from a 3rd grade level in reading in Dec 2010 to almost a 6th grade reading level. Now I may not be a rocket scientist but even I know this is not possible. All they care about is the TCAP scores and from looking at them I would say they failed miserably. If you have a choice put your child somewhere else this school is not about educating as much as cattle herding.

I have two children at Oak Forest Elementary. I have been extremely pleased with all of my children's teacher thus far. We came to Oak Forest from a private school and our experience at Oak Forest has been one that I don't think the private school could have competed with. My children are "advanced learners" and Oak Forest has done an excellent job of challenging them and allowing them to excel at their own pace without limiting their academic exposure to just their grade curriculum. Though I was reluctant at first after being pleased with their private school, I am more than confident that Oak Forest was the perfect choice for my children's education and will continue to be. Oak Forest is now in the process of becoming an International Baccalaureate school which is bringing even more advanced learning opportunities including Chinese.

I am a parent with a child that attends Oak Forest. I amalso in the PTO . I have found that the faculty and administrators are very caring , especially towards my child who is recovering from autism.

I am in no position to judge the entire school. However, my individual experience has been a good one. I am from out of town, and I was expecting the worst after hearing about the Memphis school system. I must say that my child is learning a lot and she loves her teachers. The thing I like the most is the constant communication with me. In the past, I have had to go to the school to ask. In this case, I have not had to. Overall, I am pleasantly surprised.

I purposely purchased a home in the area of Oak Forest in order to send my child to school there. In general, the teachers are all good/excellent. Parental Participation is vital in ensuring your child's success.

This is not a quality school. The principal and Teachers is not creative. They destroy the self esteem of the child. They do not work with parents or the student. Poor Adminstration.
