Read what parents are saying about Oakton Elementary School
The school is average, not great, at least academically. My child has been attending for a couple of years now. Some teachers are great. Some, basically, mail it in. If the test scores are higher, it is because of the parent involvement, not the school academics per say. My kid is quiet and well-behaved, so teachers tend to forget about us. The curriculum seems really lacking and homework assignment are basic and we never get any feedback on them back. I'm not sure how much that depends on the overall curriculum and how much it is up to a teacher to challenge the students with extra, interesting stuff. If we hadn't been working at home on math, reading, writing, etc., my child wouldn't learn much at school. Another area I find frustrating is the lack of communication from our teacher. We hardly ever find out what they are learning and how they are learning it. Even though, the county spending per kid is high, the results are not there.

I feel compelled to comment based on the previous comment. I have two children at Oakton Elementary and we are very satisfied. The class size is not a Oakton Elementary problem, but an overall county problem which has been taken seriously by the Administration office. For a public School, this school will knock your socks off. The teacher are caring and academics are great. The test scores speak for themselves. Its easy to compare this school to all the other schools in Fairfax County or VA as a whole and it is clear to see why this school is one of the BEST!!!!!

My kid attended KG, 1st and 2nd grade in this school. We heard a lot of good thing about this school and we were very excited to be part of this school. Unfortunately that was not the case.. Like other elementary school in this AREA.. this school is no exception in regards to Higher students to Teacher ratio.. An avg classroom will have 25-27 students/ teacher with no teacher help. if you or your kid is not in teacher favorite list.. then basically you are just sending your kids to a free day care.. Please do not expect he/she will going to bring any homework and since the teacher have so many kids.. no body really care.. Even though district forward each academic curriculum, you still have to be in good luck to get good teacher assigned to your kid. Quarterly grading is either a big formality or a big joke.. hard to pick which one best fit for this school. somewhere around march next year, suddenly the teacher will going to call you, along with School principal to let you know that your kids is below average and sorry we were unable to communicate this information in a timely manner. i think overall school highly overrated and school really need to do some reality check.

The best School in the area! Couldn't ask more from a public school!!! The teachers are caring and qualified. The students are smart and happy and the principal is visible. This is a gem of the Oakton Vienna area!!!

I am a sixth grader in this school. It is the best school you can have unlike the old school I would go to, this school has no bullies and the teachers in AAP are the best. I have only been in this school since fifth grade and I whish I had been here since third grade. I learned from my friends that the third and fourth grade teachers were very nice. If you say the front desk people are unfriendly and they communicate poorly, I don't belive so. I think this school deserves a 10 out of ten instead of a nine out of ten.
