Oxford City Schools Reviews

The teachers and faculty are very kind. However, since there are so many students it can become a little overwhelming for the guidance counselors. This especially true closer to graduation and the end of the year. As far as academics, the school is top notch. Teachers really try to help their students learn. It is a great place for STEM and career oriented classes. Athletics are also a huge part of the school in favor of the arts such as band, theatre, art, choir, etc.

Oxford City Schools is a great district academically. Students are well-prepared for college. However, it seems like the district finds every way to lessen students comfortability. Safety is always a priority, but only at the expense of the students. It feels more like a detention center than a school at times, because of all the unnecessary "precautions." Students have to pay to have their phones in their possession while on school grounds, they cannot wear jackets in school, and if the males do not have a belt on, they are sent to detention.
I am an Oxford graduate from the class of 2018. I’ve enjoyed my time being a part of this school system. I’ve met some of the best teachers who have became mentors for me for the future. Oxford city schools also provides various possibilities for college readiness with their career technical classes and numerous AP and DE course selections. Their clubs and sports are also very successful and they give recognition to those involved. Every school has its “ups and downs” but Oxford stays up most of the time. If I could give them pointers on anything, it would be for more parent involvement (maybe an open house for parents to see who the students teachers are and how all classes work throughout a school day) also giving more informative announcements.
