We love this school! I am the proud mom of two OPA-SV students. One student who has graduated and moved on to High School and one who is currently attending. We are so very happy with the academic program as well as the extra curricular activities that our school offers. My children have been enthralled in a school culture that values diversity, academic success and believes that every student is gifted. We are so blessed to be a part of the OPA family.
OPA allows for many opportunities for students. On a weekly basis, students receive foreign language (Spanish or Mandarin), Tae Kwon Do, PE, Music, Science Lab, and Library. There are (free) after school clubs for all types of interests including e-sports, gardening, running club, and music. There are so many in-school activities to enjoy and celebrate including Meet the Masters (art), spirit days, peer assistance leaders, philanthropy, etc. Each classroom is named by their chosen university, instead of their grade level, and the focus is college bound. In fact everything is named as it would be in a university with the chancellor (principal), dean (assistant principal), and professors (teachers). Students wear their formal uniforms, spirit wear, and university shirts on a specific weekly schedule. The school, teachers and admin. all go above and beyond to make school a real-life experience, and use multiple intelligences to support all students in their learning endeavors.
I am so thankful that our family has been a part of Oxford Preparatory Academy. The teachers, staff, and school leadership are welcoming, responsive, and truly care about the kids. There are leadership opportunities for the students and many ways for students to be more involved in school, such as in clubs and sports. There are always lots of fun things going on and the kids are often recognized for the great things they are doing. The school is inclusive and welcoming for all, and you can see that diversity is valued.
