Oxford Academy Reviews

Students at Oxford Academy are surrounded by a protective bubble that separates them and protects them from many of the typical dangers that are associated with high school such as drugs and bullying. Students at Oxford are truly part of a family as each grade is composed of 200 carefully selected students that are together for six years. The true reflection of a community and familial aspect of Oxford Academy is reflected by my grade especially: when a student passed away in our grade, our class united and supported one another through hard times. Despite such a great community, Oxford is a competitive environment that sometimes causes students to question their worth and harbor insecurities as our student body is composed of exceptional students. We literally have students who have met the president or been to Antarctica! However, despite such drawbacks, this competitive environment pushes every student to push their boundaries and truly reach their full potential.

I have been a student at Oxford Academy for six years, and I believe it is a great school. The teachers truly care about their students' success, and they are always open to help students who are struggling. The classes are difficult, but they are very effective in preparing students for college, and most teachers ensure that their workload is not too much to manage. The sports, clubs, and other organizations on campus offer a variety of options for students to engage in extracurricular activities. The diverse and tight-knit community create a unique and comfortable environment for staff, students, and parents. There have been issues with communication between Administration and the students, as many students feel that sometimes they are not being heard, but other than that I have no major complaints.
Oxford Academy is a small community of students, creating a close-knit relationship among them. This community is highly competitive, creating a name for yourself mainly based off of your academics, extracurriculars, very little of your personality. This competitive environment allows for students to grow academically. Yet this may as well cause unnecessary stress towards students. The teachers themselves are average. However, I myself have had some exceptional teachers within the departments, offering highly rigorous and well-taught courses. The administration seems to have a few problems with handling issues like cheating, however, it is to be expected with the amount of it that goes on at Oxford. There have been many instances where the way administration deals with cheating lack fairness at all. One example is a student I know, in which they were offered a lesser punishment in exchange for ratting out other students. Is that really ethical in the school system?
