At first I didn't know if I should enroll my child in a private school or public. I am so glad we chose OHE. The teacher's are exceptional, caring, and offer great tips and extra work. The class ratios have been lower than required. Parent involvement is through the roof. There are so many free clubs, extra activities and events because parents volunteer their time and talent. I am proud to be an OHE parent and couldn't be more pleased with the education my child is receiving.

Our daughter just finished her first year at Oak Hill in the dual language program. We found her teachers to be perceptive, nurturing, and focused on their curriculum. The parent support from the community is excellent, as is turnout as school events like global culture night and the fundraising carnival. We are pleased with our experiences to date.

My kids love this school. The teachers are great and the parent involvement is one of the largest in the area. We love that kindergarten has it's own building.

My daughter is going into 1st grade after having a seamless and great kindergarten year in the dual language program. A lot of thought went into deciding whether to send her to Oak Hill, and I am confident we made the right decision. The school population is diverse and the parent involvement and support is OUTSTANDING. We are lucky to have so many parents volunteering their time for the kids, teachers and community. It is wonderful to always feel welcome in the school. We love it, and my 4 -year old is so excited to be a student there next year since she has been to so many of the community events the school has sponsored!

We were thinking of sending our child to a private school, but really, why, when this excellent school is right here under our noses! I cannot think of a better place for our child. The school is safe, with amazing teachers, creative teaching (at least in the lower grades, before testing begins). My child came from a Montessori environment and continues to be challenged and curious at Oak Hill Elementary. Specifically, she is learning and using new vocabulary words every week, she gets to watch chicks incubate and hatch, she is excited about math, she plays in the park-like playground, and is loved by her teachers. What more could you ask for? I am almost scared to see what happens in the older grades when testing starts and ruins the creative process of teaching, but for now, it's great!

Very very impressed! My child's daycare was top notch, and she walked into Oak Hill kindergarten reading. On day 3 she was already tested and the teacher stated the goal is to have my child one grade level above her starting point. WoW! she is already there and we are pushing ahead. Go ahead take the private school tours, we were planning to go private, but ask yourself are you impressed with the building or the teaching team? Life lessons of ethics, self-discipline, and tolerance are taught daily at OHE in an enviroment that is fun and exciting. You do not need to write a tuition check to get a great education in Oak Hill! PS: bus service is a wonderful, on time, so you are at work on time.

My sons love this school. My oldest just started 5th grade and has been at OHE since Kinder. The faculty and administration care about the students. They strive to teach each child at his/her level. At OHE, it is about the student! The parent involvement is phenomenal and the OHE PTA was ranked in the top 6 PTAs in AISD last year. That is amazing. They do amazing things to help all of our students and faculty. Not only are there many opportunities for children during the school hours, the after school programs are great: Lego Robotics, Choir, Volleyball, Gardening Club, Mad Science, Sports and much, much more! Love this school!

Wow...after reading reviews from 2004, I want to know when are they going to start handling their communication issues because all those issues that are in the negative reviews are the same issues I have been dealing with also! Some of the teachers I have come across are good but, like others have said, if your child is "normal" or a "cookie cutter" version of a child this school seriously can't do much for them. Most parents look for excellence - not mediocrity. The school, teachers, staff, etc. needs to step up and "soar to excellence", themselves.

Wonderful school in Southwest Austin - challenging, close knit, diverse and fun. New principal did a fantastic job her first year and we look forward to another EXEMPLARY year at Oak Hill Elementary under her leadership. Student population is now 775. The teachers go above and beyond - holding writing camps that the kids love on Saturday mornings which inspire them. While the school is not new (built 1974) the campus is large, secure and has much to offer. Kindergarten has its own building, garden areas for science curriculum, large playground with shaded track, soccer field, volleyball and basket ball areas. A FANTASTIC library and librarian that does so much more than simple story time and book check out. She arranges amazing book fairs, weekly lessons, summer camp. After school programs continue to amaze: LEGO robotics, choir, garden club, basketball and more. Also Math Pentathlon and Scratch computer club. The parent volunteers and PTA are fabulous. AMD has become an invaluable partner as well as other supporting area businesses. Looking forward to our children assigned to amazing teachers that challenge as well as nurture a love for learning!

Oak Hill is not just a wonderful school academically but it is a great place to be a kid. The school's administration works hard to make it a welcoming and nurturing place where kids come first. Teachers are top-knotch and the PTA does an amazing job bringing the whole community together. My daughter loves school as a result!

Both of my sons attended Oak Hill and received a quality education. The best part about the school is how they really try to match the teachers to the childrens' needs. Fabulous teachers and very supportive faculty and staff.

Last year was our first year at OHE. My son went to private preschool and private kinder at another school. I was very nervous about such a large school and large class. He did fantastic better than ever. The teacher they matched him with really understood him. She "turned the light on" for him. He is reading at a much higher grade level and his writing has come so far thanks to his teacher at OHE. It seems they really care about the kids.

I have 3 kids at Oak Hill and my oldest son is in 5th grade and gets great grades, but every Friday is in 'detention' for things like not showing work on homework, or forgetting to put his name on a paper. My son feels he cannot do anything right and feels like he can't please his teacher no matter how hard he tries. I NEVER get any notes or anything in regards to how well my son is doing...even on his report card the teacher can't take the time to praise him, but surely has the time to point out all the 'bad' things my kid does. My son loved school up until he went to Oak Hill. We came from an exemplary school in Round Rock and I am very disapointed in Oak Hill. This school is probably great for the 'cookie cutter kid'.

About the tests


In 2012-2013, the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) was used to test students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8; in writing in grades 4 and 7; in science in grades 5 and 8; in social studies in grade 8; and end-of-course assessments for English I, II, and II, Algebra I and II, biology and US History. STAAR is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Texas. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

The different student groups are identified by the Texas Education Agency; if there are a small number of students in a particular group, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


Texas uses Accountability Ratings to indicate the overall performance of each school and district. The ratings are based on TAKS test results, dropout rates for grades 7 and 8 and school completion rates for grades 9 through 12. Schools and districts rated under standard accountability procedures are designated as Exemplary, Recognized, Academically Acceptable or Academically Unacceptable. Schools and districts rated under alternative education accountability (AEA) procedures are designated as either AEA: Academically Acceptable or AEA: Academically Unacceptable.
