Oak Terrace is an excellent school with excellent teachers. It has been closely allied with the community ever since its beginnings. Best wishes to a new school year. As a former OTS teacher I know how hard everyone at Oak Terrace works to improve education for its students.

We originally chose this school and moved to this area because of the dual language program. Unfortunately, my son ended up having a learning disability and could not participate in the dual language program. However, the resources available for him have been fantastic and his special education teacher ...  Read more

I have had 3 children at this school and would NOT recommend this school AT ALL. The leadership is so poor that there is high teacher turnover and no consistency. This school is too big and too chaotic and the principal is unable to deal with this in any way, shape, or form. We are pulling our kids ...  Read more

Oak Terrace administration and teachers work collaboratively to ensure that each and every child feels safe at Oak Terrace and free to pursue the quality North Shore School District education that is proffered.

Oak Terrace is a fabulous school. Our home school is Lincoln, but my kids travel to OT get a wonderful education. The teachers are dedicated, the facility is modern and well-equipped, the population is diverse and the principal is simply the best. You can't beat Oak Terrace for a quality education.

Our son started second grade at Oak Terrace in August 2007. We moved from a Spanish immersion program in Indianapolis and sought out this school because of its strong language program and its cultural diversity. From our first day we have been impressed with friendliness and professionalism of all the ...  Read more

My son went to this son for a few years and I wish we didn't have to move from IL to TX. The people who work in this school know all of the children for the most part, even the children not in their classes. The teachers listen to you and are there to help you just as much as they are there to help your ...  Read more

One of my greatest complaints about the school is trying to pick up your child - at the same time as the parents of the other 500 children are picking up their child. The deplorable parking facilities are inexcusable for a building that is only 5 years old. Our child's teacher is amazing...but much ...  Read more

We love the teachers and the staff. They are supportive and listen to your families needs. They offer a comprehensive curriculum and allow the children to excel. The only downfall is that some things the school offers are expensive.
