Oakwood City School District Reviews
Oakwood is a great place for those who want to challenge themselves academically. The school has lots of AP options, as well as College Credit Plus and Career Tech partnerships. The school building itself is a little small for the number of students and, being an older building, does have some issues with climate control(it's literally freezing or a sauna). One issue, however, is the English classes, which barely prepare students for standardized testing.The administration is also very respectful of its students, and accommodating when needed. Of course, there have been some problems transitioning to online learning(due to the COVID-19 crisis), but most teachers have been understanding of the shift. In terms of teachers, I would definitely say that they are above average-- with a few exceptions. The food is also very good(with restaurant chains bringing in food as well as some simple alternatives) and generally provides options for vegetarians. However, diversity is extremely poor.
We’ve been in this school district for three years so far, all of which have been extraordinary! My children love the school and community. I wish this site’s ranking criteria was a better representation of the total package. For example, my daughter (elementary) learned how to code her own games in coding club. I attended, as a guest, an elementary kindness ball, where everyone waltzed and showed appreciation for kind actions. Some days the Superintendent greets children as they approach the school, even in snow. There is a daily promotion of developing core values, shown in so many situations. I am consistently reminded that this district is simply superb.
The Oakwood School System boasts an outstanding record of inspired students, challenging curriculum, and passionate teachers. Children are encouraged to be their best each and every day, and hard work is the norm. High averages are common, and collaboration rather than competition is seen amongst the students. Overall it is an excellent School District for parents, students, and teachers.
