20 Parent Reviews for The Oak Hill School

Oak Hill School USED to be the best school in Nashville. It has become nothing but a "business" run by a dictatorship. The head of school if awful! She is a bully! She bullies the teachers and this year alone 20 faculty/staff have quit. That was UNHEARD of back in the good old days. She is so mean. I ...  Read more

The Oak Hill School has steadily improved its academic excellence in the past few years since the current head of school has taken over. We have been at the school for over 10 years and have experienced the leadership changes first hand. We are so pleased that the teachers are now collaborating on ...  Read more

OHS is losing 13 faculty members this year. The trajectory of the school has significantly changed since the hiring of the current head of school in 2009. Christian principles and culture are primarily noted only in specific classrooms. Leadership's management style is questionable for a healthy school. ...  Read more

Great teachers. Terrible Head of School. Teachers complain about her leadership and being over worked with work outside the classroom. The long standing Christian base has rapidly departing since this Head took over. Many families that have been there for over 20 years have and are leaving. I have ...  Read more

Don't know who the sour grapes people are but my experience of the Oak Hill School has been awesome. The teachers are so sweet and caring. The new head master, who is a wonderfully articulate woman, has brought accountability (and accreditation) to the school, which was long overdue. It indeed is a Christian ...  Read more

I disagree with the recent marginal reviews of Oak Hill School. This school has always been strong in this community, and those traditions have been enhanced and brought up to date with this current administration. Keeping abreast of Best Practices in K-12 education takes a lot of work and initiative, ...  Read more

Correct Information Please: There have not been 4 or 5 Heads of School in the last few years or 15 years. There have been 3 which is completely normal since our current Head has just been at Oak Hill for the last 2 years. Sissy Wade was Head of School from 1994-2001, Claire Wilkins 2002-2008, and ...  Read more

I would have to agree with the precious 3 posters about the current state of Oak Hill School. The powers that be who select these heads of school just cannot seem to get it right. The new head wants to control every aspect of the school and does not value the school's traditions enough to keep them. ...  Read more

This school is a top flight institution with excellent facilities and a rich tradition. I have been very pleased with our experience thus far and this school is clearly among the top 3 schools of its type in Nashville. I do wish that the curriculum was more demanding, but the school walks a fine line ...  Read more
