Oak Hill Middle School Reviews

I felt that my 3 years at Oak Hill Middle School facilitated my transition from a child into a young woman ready and eager to take on new responsibilities. The workload was easier than expected going into sixth grade, but increased gradually until eighth grade, making my step into high school easier. Most of the teachers encouraged questions and learning, while others did not seem quite as knowledgeable and enthusiastic about their jobs. Every year there was a mixed bag of good and bad educators, but on the whole I learned valuable things every year. Getting the right teachers who were ready for their lessons and able to control their classes was key to having a good experience during the school year. The social aspect of the school was "cliquey" if you will, and it was difficult to switch between various social groups. Because the town of Newton mostly consists of upper middle class families, most of the kids are well-off, making you feel slightly more aware of yourself if your family does not have the means to afford certain brands of clothing, or have nice, fresh school supplies every year. The building itself is set up a little abnormally, with world languages completely set off in a modular away from the rest of the school building. This layout makes getting to certain classes in time difficult and tedious. The library was on the smaller side and had a limited collection of books. The building is old and a bit run down. Overall, it was a good experience, but definitely not the best.
