It’s much better than its reputation. There are some very organized and dedicated teachers at this school.

Prior to my child being enrolled I had no knowledge of the low test scores (over all lowest in the district) or that the overall behavior of the children that go to the school.I never thought these things would raise concern for me personally as a parent. The school is overly populated with 6th, 7th, and 8th graders with extreme disciplinary issues displaying disrespectful and violent behavior not excluding: racial slurs, bullying, and no regard for adult authority. My child witness violent fights and was threaten after helping a friend. There has been frequent visits by the police who have had to physically remove students from the campus due to the students violent behavior towards another student. My child personally has experience some of the the things mentioned above, as well as be violated in the girls restroom. These things mentioned is only covering just a few of the unresolved issues. If you are a parent I strongly urge you to visit this school before sending your child to Oak Grove Middle School. I personally would not recommend this school to any one. There is no regard to my child's safety and a middle of the school transfer is a long frustrating process!

The administration, teachers and special education staff at Oak Grove Middle School in Concord have all done a wonderful job in supporting, educating and preparing my son for high school. Ditto for the after school CARES program.

Hello, I am a student at Oak Grove and may I just say that it is the best thing that ever happened to my sister and I. To the racial comment about the school being a nightmare to non-Spanish speakers; the students here all treated equally. Ever since we were little, my family and I have moved around a lot. This is the only school we've felt comfortable at. The staff here are at a personal level with the students. I really love it here. P.S shout out to Ms. Murphy Oates, we will always love you :)

A discriminatory nightmare to non-Spanish speaking kids! Gang induction and non-conforming (to Hispanic aligned groups) isolation. This problem is fueled by political and local social issues and a general unwillingness to enforce the use of English even though it IS a requirement to become a citizen.
