Oakdale Joint Unified School District Reviews

It was an amazing school for athletes like I was. Although our teachers are getting much better, our ag Department’s teachers are not good. We have one good ag teacher, but our school forced him to get rid of his class and now the class is a joke being taught by another teacher that doesn’t know what she is doing. Oakdale is a mainly ag related town and it’s sad to see classes get wasted by teachers that aren’t up to par. Our welding teacher doesn’t even know how to weld and just has kids watch movies rather than teach them himself.

Oakdale Joint Unified School District is overall a very great district. As a student, I have had many wonderful teachers who have prepared me for college. I feel very safe in this district and I have never wanted to leave for that reason. For a small district, their sports are quite incredible. Oakdale continues to not only excel through sports, but through academics as well. The only reason why I think Oakdale Joint Unified School District is not a five out of five star district is due to the poor facilities and food they provide. The sport facilities are always nice, but not the others. In my opinion, the administration is not always the friendliest and the school culture is not the greatest. No matter how many negatives I have pointed out, I enjoy being a part of this district.
There are clubs like science Olympiad and academic decathlon. Most of the money is given to football though. The foreign language department does not get enough funding. In fact, the textbooks have been used since the '90s and are falling apart. The academics are okay, but there isn't much of a variety in the choice of classes to take. There is also a bullying problem that is constantly ignored.
