My child has been a student with the Oak Grove district since kindergarten and currently attends at the high school level. We could not be more pleased with the education they have received. The high quality of academic programs and small student/teacher ratios have definitely benefited them in their educational career. Our fine arts programs are outstanding. We have an award winning marching band under the same directors for the past ten plus years. We have a wide variety of athletic programs to choose from for the fall and spring seasons. In addition, this is our second year for boys and girls soccer. We have many other extracurricular programs for students not interested in athletics or fine arts, too numerous to mention. (They are all listed on our website.) Our campus is in the heart of the community with all buildings, K-12, in very close proximity to the others. This allows our high school students, who belong to the A+ program, to be able to walk to the lower grade level buildings for A+ tutoring/mentoring. All buildings are up-to-date and easily accessible. The level of parent involvement is unbelievable. In addition, on the flip-side, the administrators and faculty welcome parent input in all facets of their student's education. I would highly recommend the Oak Grove School District to anyone living or moving to the eastern Jackson County area. The Oak Grove community works hand in hand with any needs of our district as well. It's a great little place to live.

Gender Identity Becomes Controversial Issue in Boston Public Schools
We report on a new policy in Massachusetts that impacts one of the largest school districts in the country, as well as the rest of the state. The gender identity policy strives to ensure all students are treated equally, but it is not without plenty of concern by opponents.
Urban Public Schools Come to the Rescue of Black Boys
Public schools across the nation are implementing programs that help keep young black men in school and off the streets. Boosting graduation rates, reducing gang involvement and violence, and providing positive male role models are just a few of the common elements of these programs. Yet, the achievement gap between black boys and other peer groups remains extremely wide.
