Oasis was a fantastic school that we were affiliated with for years. Unfortunately, it closed down in 2010 and is no longer available.

Posted January 30, 2009

Oasis is a top-notch school, with a multi-age setting so that kids learn at their own level. It has a small student to teacher ratio so every teacher really gets to know your child. I particularly like that my child is not getting a new teacher every year but one that he is already comfortable around and who understands him. The teachers all have masters degrees and do an excellent job of providing an integrated, hands-on curriculum. Oasis provides an outstanding learning experience for the kids, and I recommend it for any parent who is looking for school that teachers their child to think and not just to memorize.

This school is the best value for the buck to be found anywhere in Washington State or beyond. As a working parent I take comfort in knowing that not only is my child getting an amazing top notch education that is turning her into an future leader in our community, but is teaching her to love learning and to have empathy for others. The class sizes are tiny and the hands-on experiences are not to be matched. Speaking of value per dollar, Oasis provides a wonderful daycare service as well, so for just a little more each month then what I was paying just for before and after school daycare costs when my daughter went to public school, now I get both; the best quality education and daycare.

Oasis is a warm and inviting school. The structure of the instruction and the skill of the teachers allows my children to get individual attention. They meet the children at whatever level they come to school with. What a great place!

My daughter attended this school for 7 years. and it is the best thing that ever happened to her. Not only did she get a terrific education academically, where she was challenged appropriately in all subjects, but she developed self confidence, strong presentation skills, an awareness of her own learning styles, strength of character, empathy, and tolerance. These have stood her well in high school. I couldn't have asked for a better elementary and middle school environment for her.

This is a great school for students who are brighter than the average or, at the other end of the spectrum, learn in nontraditional ways that are tough to accomodate in publice school. There is a caring, respectful environment for the kids and a fondness among the parents that is unmatched at any other Richland public or private school. If you are looking for numerical measures of your child's learning through standardized tests or the WASL, you will have to do that elsewhere. You can absorb 7 days having your child tested or you can allow them to learn more about themselves and the world around them during those 7 days. My son absolutely loves the intimate environment and the individual attention that the teacher is willing and able to give him.

Oasis' small school setting allows its teachers to nurture the gifts of every child. The strong parent-teacher connection creates a warm, supportive environment that is the necessary precursor to academic excellence.

Oasis provides an outstanding educational experience. The class sizes are small enabling the teachers to tailor the education to meet each child's learning style. It utilizes an integrated curriculum in a multi-age classroom setting. It is truly an exceptional school.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
