Oak Park Unified School District Reviews

21 reviews
All Categories
A few of the faculty are lazy and inconsiderate. They have little disregard for students feelings. Such teachers overlook the students' wellbeing for their own. Some teachers will refuse to discuss discrepancies on tests because they are unwilling to be proven wrong. Other times, teachers will refuse to help students reach their full potential. Students who are advanced are not encouraged to reach higher. In fact, such high achieving students are required to suppress their abilities for the ease of the teacher's career. Even counselors have been known to hinder the students learning environment rather than aid them. Certain faculty members respond to requests for help with spiteful criticism. Many such critics have upset students and parents.

I loved the experience and the challenges that came with Oak Park High School. I took several AP courses and worked very hard through my high school years,but I feel I am ready for College and for life. Processing my years at Oak Park and the dedication I put into my studies have been worth all the stress,hard work,and dedication as I am not only ready to move on to college, but I am motivated to succeed! Applying to colleges was scary as I didn't know if I would get in to the tough schools that I applied for, and it turned out that I got into 10 out of the 12. Oak Park High School helped me not only to succeed but also to become a leader with my peers.
OPUSD is essentially a dead-man walking school district. It relies on the "District of Choice" program to stay open. Without DoC, the school system is probably not financially viable.

Teachers are OK, nothing special. Administration is horrible. This place hires most of its administrators into positions they have never had experience with. Consequently, from the Superintendent to the MS and HS Principals, you have inexperienced and generally incompetent administration.

My experience is that a lot of the OPUSD employees are there because they are trying to avoid more challenging student populations or other lines of work. Most are not dedicated educators of any sort.

Think "emperor's new clothes" when you think of OPUSD.
