Outstanding school , sadly becoming over crowded children from other districts are some how enrolled.
My child attended K at this school and needless to say the low test scores are a direct refection of the leadership, if they ever want to excel they'll have to get new leadership. The principal said "we have new schools and now everyone wants to enroll their child", Really?!?!?!? Personally I'd rather have a old building with passing students, instead of a new one with failing ones but thats just me. There are ALWAYS fundraising materials coming home with the students and it appears the priority is fundraising and aesthetics rather than education. The teacher was ok, but there were several issues I had to address regarding common courtesy and the curriculum only became somewhat challenging for my child in the 3rd quarter. Overall, kids attending in this district will be FAR BEHIND their peers that are in true academic environments. I THANK GOD my child was accepted into a school that has a 9 out of 10 rating on here and is a TRUE academic powerhouse. For those that have to send their child here I feel sorry for you, my advice is to work with your child at home as much as you can because if you don't advocate for your child no one will. Good Luck!
Good school. Good teachers. All around really good experience for my child. She is now attending college, and looks back on the time in Oak Glen fondly.
I attended this school K-5 and my daughter is now a student there. Last year she had a teacher who was there when I was there and I just have to say, she really needs to just retire already. You can tell she's tired and had no patience whatsoever for the firwst graders she teaches. My daughter went to Lester Crawl the year prior and she had an amazing teacher who went above and beyond X 100 for every student so it was quite a letdown to get such a horrible, crabby, mean spirited woman the following year. I myself almost cried every time I had a conference with her because of how harsh she came across, I can only imagine how she must have made my daughter feel! On another note, there are many teachers who are very good and I overall feel good about sending my child there..Mrs. Heiberger is amazing and truly cares about the district...putting her as superintendent was the best decision they ever made!
