Oxford City Schools Reviews

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.

I like how nice my teachers are and the environment at Oxford is very good. Many of my teachers had really tried to help me succeed, and I could tell that they really cared about my wellbeing. Everything is clean and the buildings are beautiful. The city council also tries to get involved with the school system and try to see things from the student's perspective. The school board is able to utilize the feedback that they get from students in order to better the school system. There is a lot of technology that students can access in order to improve their learning experience.
Oxford City Schools offers PreK-12+ education opportunities utilizing a one-to-one Macbook computer initiative (Connect). Students are challenged to succeed academically but also to build soft skills (technology and written/oral communication) needed to enhance their ability to advance into a college and/or a career setting after high school. Oxford High School also partners with local colleges for several dual-enrollment opportunities not generally afforded to schools in this area of Alabama. While state champion athletic events often take the forefront of extra-curricular activities, Oxford boasts award winning band, choral, drama, and art fine-arts programs as well as an in-house broadcasting studio. Students are also deeply rooted in community service activities alongside local businesses and organizations in order to give back to the community for their continued support of the Oxford City School System.
