This school over the past two years has been transformed. The staff has improved, the discipline has improved and behavioral and educational standards have improved. Extracurricular clubs and programs have added to the school culture and experience, and students graduating from here have a broader international perspective as its about to begin its first year as an IB school. If the district can figure out how to tamper down the white flight, I have a feeling in a couple years test scores here would surpass state averages. However tests may continue to be artificially Lowered by year immigrants who are all funneled into this school by the district and given Tests in language they don’t understand, as well as parents who are scared by diversity and transfer their kids to either foothill middle or private school.
It’s much better than its reputation. There are some very organized and dedicated teachers at this school.
Prior to my child being enrolled I had no knowledge of the low test scores (over all lowest in the district) or that the overall behavior of the children that go to the school.I never thought these things would raise concern for me personally as a parent. The school is overly populated with 6th, 7th, and 8th graders with extreme disciplinary issues displaying disrespectful and violent behavior not excluding: racial slurs, bullying, and no regard for adult authority. My child witness violent fights and was threaten after helping a friend. There has been frequent visits by the police who have had to physically remove students from the campus due to the students violent behavior towards another student. My child personally has experience some of the the things mentioned above, as well as be violated in the girls restroom. These things mentioned is only covering just a few of the unresolved issues. If you are a parent I strongly urge you to visit this school before sending your child to Oak Grove Middle School. I personally would not recommend this school to any one. There is no regard to my child's safety and a middle of the school transfer is a long frustrating process!
The administration, teachers and special education staff at Oak Grove Middle School in Concord have all done a wonderful job in supporting, educating and preparing my son for high school. Ditto for the after school CARES program.
