Oxford City Schools Reviews

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.
Oxford City schools just by looking at the academic programs is not an overall terrible school. The staff genuinely cares about the student's education and offer a wide variety of paths to choose from. They offer several college level courses, AP courses, and dual enrollment courses. It is a fantastic way to get ahead in college.
But, the community as a whole at this school is divided and tense. Fights break out quite a lot and bullying is prevalent here. The way the students are treated lack respect as well.
