My children went to Oakshire Elementary and while the staff and work load are exceptional and the ability to detect learning disabilities is also exceptional, the way the teachers speak to the students and the way that they handle bullying leaves ALOT to be desired. I am changing my children back over to Southaven Elementary because my children enjoy going to Southaven and I as a mother listen to the needs of my children and their safety and how much they enjoy going to school matter alot to me. No offense to the Principle or staff but my children just felt like the odd men out when attending Oakshire. The discipline and attitudes at Southaven of the staff and children have been called paradise by my children. Half the time at Oakshire, I was infuriated with the lack of compassion and tenure.
This is a wonder school for parents to send their children for advancement in their education. The Principal, Dr. Thomas Rogers motivates the teachers, students, parents and others in the community. This school is a light in the community since Dr. Rogers became principal. I know first hand about what the vision is for this school. I congratulate Oakshire Elem. for being a school of growth.
