Oak Park Independent School is a very good school. The teachers and staff members are all very helpful and kind. It is a friendly, accepting environment and there is no tension or malice between the students. The needs of the students are all accommodated, including their schedules and classes. The work is truly independent for students to teach themselves, but sometimes this can be an issue. Most of the books are not teaching textbooks, and they are outdated, making it more difficult for one to grasp and truly understand the information on their own. There is also a lack of variety in teaching methods, most subjects being taught by only reading a textbook. Oak Park Independent School is a very good school, but the true flaw is the difficulty and lack of depth in some of the self-education, including in more challenging topics, like chemistry.

Absolutely recommend for kids who can’t attend school for different reasons. Office staff is amazing and helpful. Teachers are great and they really get to know you! Work is manageable. Still get to participate in activities up at the actual high school such as prom and senior night.
My experience at Oak Park Independent School was amazing. I am so thankful that I had the opportunity to go to this school. I learned more than I ever thought I could, and was still able to do all the things I love to do like triathlons and acting.
