School Reviews

  • Recommended September 27, 2010 - Little Oak Middle School may have a lot to do in a short period of time because there are so many children in the school. But, the staff is still willing to work with each child that is willing to make the change needed. No there isn't time to waste on parents wanting to do it THEIR way and NOT setting consequences and sticking to them. I am pleased with the outcome of my childs problem at Little Oak. Thank you staff for giving that extra MINUTE To JUST CARE. Mrs. B - Posted by Parent
  • Recommended September 26, 2007 - Little Oak Middle is the best school that I have seen. The staff is very understanding and has helped my child be the best he can be. The taechers are absolutley amazing and the principal is always available. I would recommend this school to ANYONE. - Posted by Parent
  • Recommended September 26, 2006 - This is the most unorganized school that I have EVER experienced. God forbid your child have problems with another child, the staff has no means of helping you or your child out with the problem. They turn it around somehow to be your child's problem. Then they want to warn your child with it going on their permanent record. This one issue has been goin on since the beginning of the school year. I have talked to the teacher, two vice prinicipals, and (my child) has been to the couselor twice. I can't for the life of me figure out why this issue has not been resolved, before it got to a boiling point. Isn't that part of what the staff is there for? This is down right ridiculous!!!!!! They get a 15 minute lunch because of the crazy way they do lunch. I am an adult, and can't eat lunch that quick. I would not send my dog to this school!!! I am pulling my child out of there as soon as possible. - Posted by Parent

Are the Three Rs Robbing our Children?
Are the Three Rs Robbing our Children?
For far too long the American public school system has failed to address “out-of-school” factors like poverty and their impact on what happens in the classroom. As the nation continues to become increasingly diverse, many schools are adopting comprehensive approaches to education that account for the unique needs of students so that each child is prepared for their future and not just for a year-end test.
States Fight to Teach “Ignorant” Science to Students
Wyoming recently became the first state to reject the Next Generation Science Standards because of concern regarding lessons that teach human-caused climate change. Several other states have also taken measures to reject the standards, which has some education officials concerned about the quality of instruction students in those states will receive.
School-to-Prison Pipeline Persists Despite Local, State and National Efforts
Inadequate funding and resources for schools, harsh zero-tolerance discipline policies, police presence in public schools, and de facto segregation continue to create school environments in which poor and minority students have little chance of succeeding. The result is a continuation of the school-to-prison pipeline that has been commonplace in the American education system for decades, despite federal, state and local efforts to curb the problem.
