School Reviews

Many teachers in this school are very good and care a lot about the students. Others are absolutely terrible and don't teach. Extra-curriculum like student council, theater, and chorus are amazing. However, the school is always dirty, infested with ants or roaches, and there are fights every other day. The guidance department is never there for students who may need emotional help, which is many due the frequent gun violence threats or scares. Overall, you can find a much better school than Oxford. I love the people here, but honestly, my education would be much better if I went somewhere else.
