Oakhurst Elementary School1

I agree the teachers are never there. My son got good grades in school but we just barely got his star test results and he has to go to summer school. How can my son learn when his teacher is never there? He neve has homework too. Were so upset.
I have 2 kids at oakhurst; grades Pre-K and Kindergarten. One attends a bilingual program and the other ESL. The Teachers are great and the Principals are nice. The sign indicating that its a recognized school undermines many other things that hundreds of parents dont get to see. In response to the 3 parents that have posted a 'review', go to the meetings, visit the school, talk to the teachers, eat lunch with your kid, dont just drop him off at the front. Its a big school with many students cause many parent move near the school just so they can sent their kid(s) there. 'My kid goes to Oakhurst' is like a fad these days. They do have reces cause thats one of my kids 'favorite class' and they do give out awards for good grades, we have two: 'Best Improved' and 'Most Noble'. I like this school alot.
My children have been attending Oakhurst for three years and not once have they had a reward for good grades on thier report card. The only thing that I heard they give rewards for is perfect attendence. I asked once about a A or B hono roll and they informed me that they didn't have any honor roll there.
