I am an Oakcrest alumna and I loved going to Oakcrest! I am now an attorney, married and still close to my Oakcrest friends. I am sorry there are some people who did not have a good experience (as can be expected at any school or institution), but from my personal experience and the experience of my friends, we loved Oakcrest and still do!
My daughter has thrived at Oakcrest. The teachers are dedicated and nurturing. The small size allows them to give each child individual attention. She can excel and play any sport because the opportunities are there. The school is also attempting to become more diverse; the lack of diversity in views in some facets of the school can sometimes detract from an optimal learning environment. It would also benefit the school if it did not act as a secondary sister school but rather an independent school on its own.
I went to Oakcrest and the environment was not the best for me. I graduated about 6-7 years ago so maybe it has changed. Although the education I received was good, there was absolutely no diversity. There was no diversity in thought or in culture. In the future I want my kids to be exposed to different cultures and different ways of thinking and this school just didn't not have that. Obviously from my writing you might be able to tell that I was one of not many minorities that attended the school and I felt ostracized and uncomfortable. I did not fit in and found it hard to blend in and make friends with the others. If this is something that is important to you, I would advise you not to send your children to this school.
I am an Oakcrest alum and now parent of an Oakcrest student, and I am thrilled to have my daughter there! She has struggled with shyness and other issues since she was little, and I feel like she is a new person since starting Oakcrest. Not that all her issues have disappeared - they haven't- but it seems like a weight has been lifted off her shoulders. She is comfortable, relaxed, and happy to be part of her class and the school. The teachers and administration really do care about the students and are great at making sure each individual gets what she needs to grow and excel. I know Oakcrest prepared me wonderfully for college and beyond, and I can see they are still doing the same for every girl that walks through their doors. I couldn't ask for a better school for my daughter!
Oakcrest has been a great school for my daughter. She gets all the help and attention she needs. The class sizes are small, allowing her the opportunity to be heard. Staff and teachers are absolutely wonderful - and truly are there to support your children. Some private Catholic schools in the area are more about the parents and aren't that interested in educating children. This is not the case at Oakcrest - our daughters are their top priority!
I love this school. I will be attendeing this school next year and from what i have seen and heard it is just phenommenal. No one imposes cristianity on you and you can be who you are and the all girls environment is just astounding. I think that this school is just fabulous.
The small class sizes at Oakcrest make is impossible to remain unnoticed. The personal attention allows each girl to grow into a young woman. The teachers at Oakcrest genuinely care about the girls, making the academic environment comfortable. The religious education and spiritual guidance is what sets Oakcrest apart from other Catholic schools in the area. Oakcrest delves deep into Church History, Catholic beliefs, and philosophy, ensuring each girl is grounded in her beliefs before she goes to college. The relationships between the girls are extremely tight, since the grades are so small. Each grade is supportave of each other. Sports at Oakcrest are not up to par with similar schools in the area, however. But this does give average athletes the oppurtunity to play on a varsity sport. Sports and other after school activites strengthen the bonds between grades.
Oakcrest is a wonderful school, every teacher goes to the extreme not just to teach but to advise and guide the students to excell. My daughter loves it. The academic quality is super. My daughter got early acceptance to every college she applied. School college counselor is always on top of every little detail to guide every individual student. Classes are small and they prepare each individual as a whole.
I used to go to Oakcrest, and I hated it. The majority of the teachers were discouraging, rude, and unhelpful to anything I was having trouble with.
