15 Parent Reviews for Oak Avenue Elementary School

We couldn't be happier or more impressed. We love the teachers, administration and the education. But we also love the community including the parents and kids. Many kids in our neighborhood bike to school together and watch out for each other. The noon play staff and volunteers help make the playground ...  Read more

Academics are rigorous and thanks to conciencious district budgeting and the LAEF, we still have our fine arts program, library, and PE k-6. The PTA is very motivated and proactive, driving many programs such as Project Cornerstone, classroom support, hot lunch, noon day, walk-a-thon, Junior Olympics, ...  Read more

This is my last year at Oak and I have been going for seven years. My teachers were fantastic as are the others there. There is plenty of time to play allowing us to take our minds off school work.

Oak school is a wonderful place for learning. I have never once been disappointed from anything that has happened here. Even with the recession hitting hard, this school is still up and running. I am at my last year at this school, and would recommend it to anyone

Well-balanced school with the right amount of emphasis on academics and play. I'm a believer that play contributes significantly to academic and social skills, especially in the elementary school ages. Video games as a form of 'play' excluded. Echoing other reviewers, parent involvement is very high. ...  Read more

Oak school is fantastic! Parents are highly involved, the teachers are incredible. I could not be happier.

Elementary Schools do not get any better than Oak. The level of parent involvement is high, very high. Also, the parent involvement is high in terms of offloading teachers of mundane work so that they can spend more quality time with the students, which makes a difference. Academics and the arts are ...  Read more
