17 Parent Reviews for Oakhurst Elementary School

My child was doing 30-minute presentations in first grade. I was skeptical until I saw it in action (twice)!

The teachers are fantastic, the curriculum is amazing. This school has managed to keep Spanish, Art, Music and PE as a part of the school day - despite amazing budget cuts.

My daughter went to school here and we loved it! The teachers are the best and the principle is extremely supportive. remember they used to take walking field trips to the Oakhurst Community Garden and the nearby creek. Can't find a better school!
