Oakfield School District Reviews
Being in the village of Oakfield with 1,075 people, you know everyone in your class whether you talked or not. You knew who was going to go on and do great things you also knew the best kid of each sport and even as small as Oakfield is there was a big diversity of backgrounds some kids grew up on the farm, others lived a slow life, some competed in pageants, others spent the weekends hunting or fishing. No matter what people say about Oakfield there's not a day I wish I switched schools Oakfield is a great learning environment with so many new and old organizations that are actually run by students and I mean that as a member and officer of the Oakfield FFA the students run the organizations and plan all activities. I am very thankful to grow up and go to Oakfield for my education.
I like Oakfield because it is a small school. It is easy to have the 1 on 1 connection between the student and teacher. Everyone knows everyone here and we all help each other out. I think this is a great place to get a high school education if you want to go somewhere small.
On a social experience, Oakfield is great. Since it's a small school, everyone is very close to each other which can be a good thing and bad thing. You won't get the experience you get from Oakfield anywhere else. The only problem I have with Oakfield is that there aren't many choices for clubs and higher academic courses. There's also not a lot of diversity due to Oakfield being a small, rural school.
It was a great high school to attend. I really liked the small class size, it gave you more one on one time with the teachers, where you may not have that opportunity at larger schools. The teachers were always there to lend a helping hand and were extremely dedicated to helping out any student.
It is a small community and everyone knows everyone so you get a lot of help when needed. They have many different course offerings and a wide variety of AP courses. The teachers really care about each student and the small class sizes are great!
Honestly, there are probably more rigorous schools out there, but a school district like Oakfield is rare. It is a small district, which limits some aspects, like sports and diversity, but what the district does have, they excel. The immense opportunities that the District provides are impressive. By the end of Sophmore year, students will have an opportunity to be in the Youth Apprentice Program (school to work) and by Senior year, most of the students will be taking AP classes or attending early college courses at local universities. The small class sizes make it easy for students to gain relationships with classmates, staff, and teachers, who only want to see their students succeed. As for safety, there is a local officer on site, with an office in the middle/high school, which makes bullying a rarity, as well as any illegal activity. The Oakfield School District is small, but their size is what makes them the greater gain.
For a small rural district they have done remarkable things for my children! I as well as many others school choice into the district meaning I have average 60 miles a day to get them there. The staff works tirelessly to be sure no child is left behind.
Oakfield is a great school for a small town kid. It has small size classes which makes the learning environment a lot nicer than a large size school because we have more 1 on 1 time with teachers. This school works well to accommodate your schedule to fit the classes you need for example I am involved in the Youth Apprenticeship Program and they worked very well to change the schedule to fit this work experience in. If there was something I wish to see changed it would be to stress clubs and activities more. These things go over looked when it comes down to clubs and sports, clubs will always come second. Our music program is looked down on to some extent even though those involved work just as hard as those in sports this is something I would like changed at Oakfield High School.
As a student at Oakfield High School, you are treated more than just a number in the system. There are roughly only about 130 students in our school. In this environment, students get more one on one opportunities with teachers, whereas to bigger schools you don't quite get that opportunity. Although, the one downfall to the school is that it is an older school, so there are some spots that need to be renovated. But other than that I would highly recommend sending children to this school and to get involved in Oakfield's community.
Oakfield has gone through a lot through the years. I feel like we always come out stronger. Almost every new teacher that comes through respects us and gets respect back. I love pretty much everything about the school. Especially the teachers. They are all so amazing and they all truly care about our education.
