My kids are very happy and receiving a great education. Their teachers are dedicated and hard working. The PTA is awesome as well and keep the parents and children involved. My kids love that they owe art and music.

Very parent involved, teachers are dedicated and try to put individualized attention to the students.

The children that misbehave are given more courtesy than those children who do not! My child was being bullied on a regular basis and after repeated visits to the school, there was no resolution. The principal and vice principal are afraid to call it bullying because they would be held responsible for the safety of my child. They continued to claim that it was simply "differences". Hardly! My child was petrified to go to school. I removed her and placed her in a private school. I wish I knew this school was this bad BEFORE we bought a home in this district!

The Oaks is no longer the great school it once was. Problematic children have more rights then those who get bullied. Staff sweeps problems under the rug and do not address issues with in the school. Staff is not welcoming to parents. Sad to see a great school in a great area decline in such manner. Our kids deserve better than what The Oaks offers.

Our son went to Oaks for 2 years before we transferred. We never realized what a great school it was until we had to accept a school with a much lesser focus on education. The gifted and talented program at Oaks was great. The students were challenged and encouraged, and were motivated to enjoy learning. I firmly believe that the success that our son has achieved in the 7 years since we left the Oaks, can be directly tied back to the foundation that he received at Oaks. I would recommend this school to any parent who desires the BEST for his/her child!

I felt the parent involvement was good and many of the teachers were experienced. The staff was friendly and took care to ensure the safety of the students.

Mrs.Mavrinac is an awesome teacher at the Oaks. Our experience at the Oaks has been fantastic! We will miss going to the Oaks next year as my daughter Nikki moves into middle school.

The Oaks is a fabulous school. The teachers and staff are extremely professional. They really go the extra mile to achieve success. I really do believe that it is a grave error to judge a school by a single test snapshot.

Kindergarden teacher Harrison is the best! 1st grade teacher Trana is very good! That's as far as we have been so far we are in 2nd grade now. Overall school is very good we love it! School is very siblings friendly!
