Oxford Preparatory Academy - South Orange County Reviews

2 reviews
My son attended OPA - SOC from 2nd grade to 5th grade. When he entered it was the school's second year in existence. I rated the school 3 stars or average, however, it is more accurate to say it is 5 stars in academics and 1 star for school culture. Like all schools, there are good and not so good teachers. If a teacher is not good at all, they lose their job - quickly. The school has been through a lot of drama, including the founder being investigated criminally and sued civilly for fraud and stealing money from the school. All the drama and politics takes away from the attention that should be given to the students. The school and more specifically my son's grade level have very serious issues with bullying. The teachers were not trained how to handle it, the administration didn't have time and frankly did not seem to care. It is sad, the school has much potential but is not run well.

I was very pro "OPA" and worked hard to get my son into this school. He attended OPA from 2nd to 5th. For the most part, the academics are very good. Although I'm not sure how they pull that off since every year they have teachers leave the first couple of weeks of school. We started in OPA - SOC's second year. I got to know many of the founding parents, I was very involved. To date, I know more families who have left than have stayed (and this is not due to their children aging out of the school). I can only speak for myself as to why we left. My son was being bullied, no physically but some severe emotional bullying, it was affecting him greatly. I had meetings, I brought in doctor's letters (psychiatrist). I quoted the charter, nothing was done. The school did not seem to care about my son. They are not bad people but with dealing with the founder ripping off the school, the constant teacher turn-over etc. There is no time to deal with problems.
