My daughter just started going to this school this year and she is loving it. Everyone from the principal to the teachers are all amazing and very helpful ! Communications with parents is great ! Thank you oakstead :-)
We recently moved from Westchase which is an area with known great schools. My son also went to McKitrick Elementary this year (known to be a "public private school" and now, comparing the three schools I can tell my son is happier here than at the other two schools. (Yes, 3 schools in one year!... not great!) Luckily my son has adapted very well, and I believe the school staff had a lot to do with it. They are friendly and very welcoming. My son is a very smart, friendly, but very active kid and Oakstead Elementary gives him enough freedom to be himself and make new friends but at the same time they enforce discipline. I would say it's a good balance. Academically, to my surprise, it's more advanced in math than the 2 prior schools. Communication between parents and teachers is accurate and daily (via email). I have to say I underestimated this school and we couldn't be happier here...
Oakstead staff are just plain rude to parents. I was yelled at by a teacher doing parking attendant duties for parking in the wrong spot. Mind you there are no labels and it was an open parking spot, not reserved for anything. I thought it might just be one person having an off day, but ever since then I have encountered many other occasions where the different staff exhibit the same culture of rudeness with a condescending attitude. Just be polite to people! Parents don't all get your internal rules and principles because we don't attend there. So stop treating us like little kids. Just terrible attitudes at this school.
I have two children who attended/attend OES. Both of them started in K and one has just completed her elementary years. For those who mention the school being too full which is understandable, however, that is not OES's fault. The LOL area is growing and building faster than the schools are being built. I have been immensely pleased with the entire staff at OES and I feel they do a great job considering the quantity of students they each have in their classroom. Each teacher has taken the time to get to know my children; as each of them are very different; and the office staff have always called my children by their name and sometimes even a nickname depending on the staff member. So, thank you OES for all that you have done and still do for my children! In fact, my daughter and her friends still plan on attending the school events since most of them have siblings still in OES. They obviously love this school!
