I have to agree with the other post in here as far as Oakwood being good for lower grades. As a parent with a 1st and 3rd grader at Oakwood I have seen the change my 3rd grader has undergone this past year. The 3rd grader loved school and now he tells me all the time that he doesn't like school. The teachers at the upper grades don't seem as intuned to the children as the lower grades. My 1st grader has Ms. Vessey and she is an awesome teacher, so intuned with the children and truly cares about them. I wish they would do something about the upper grades before more children end up like my 3rd grader. I'm currently trying to move out of school district before another year starts. They need to find teachers for upper grades that are as sincere as the lower grades.

This School is probably at the lower end of quility schools in the Seattle metro area. They have very good lower grade level teachers k-2 but above that I have seen a lack of discipline possibly a result of over crowding. I have had several complaints from my son of kids getting into fights and using foul language on the buses and in the play ground while teachers did little to prevent it. I have also had bad luck with my sons 3rd grade teacher he went from a happy go lucky good student to unhappy with school and getting in trouble all after switching to this teacher.

The last person to leave a comment, I'm sorry about your experience. I've found mine to be opposite. I love Mr. Mitchell's leadership, encouragement, and wellness as a person. I really like Ms. Haymaker though. She was my teacher when I attended this school. She was really dedicated. I believe each and every one of these marvelous teachers are trying to change their classroom to reform to the 'no child left behind act.' I just have to say that I really like Oakwood's diversity and hope they can grow much more in the near future.

I have two boys that attend this school and the younger grades are wonderful to attend but the older grades are bad. The teachers get more distant and less involved with their students and whatever the reasons are it is still unacceptable.

My two boys are currently attending this school. They are in Kindergarden and 1st grade. They love school and I love this one too! Mr. Mitchell is such an involved principal! Ms. Vessey is a great 1st grade teacher who is always involved and truly cares. Ms. Long as well is a truly sweet and caring Kindergarden teacher. She is so informing of my child's progress! I love Oakwood and plan on keeping them here until they go on to Lochburn Middle School in 2008!
