    "Oakdale is a great school that consistently meets its goals for academic progress. The teachers go above and beyond for the students. The student body is very diverse and that is the main reason we have chosen to stay in this area. Oakdale has challenges that more affluent schools do not have but our 4 kids have always felt safe and have always scored above the average of even the less diverse schools."

    "I am a dissatisfied parent. My son is new to the school and hasn't had the opportunity to see what the school has to offer. My 1st grader has been at the school for 2 months and he has been jumped on by 4 students in his class, and the only punishment they got was 2 days recess taken away. Then the very next week my son was accused of "putting his hand on several students, and put on detention. Several weeks after the incident where the 4 boys admitted to beating up my son, one of the same boys punched my son in the mouth and knocked his tooth out during recess. I was told my son would be punished as well as the young man, and yet I had to find out when I picked my son up from school at 3:30. I never received a phone call from a teacher, assistant principal, or principal that my son had been in an incident where he was injured. An there excuse was that he didn;t tell anyone. How could two kids get into a physical altercation where one childs tooth is completely knocked out of his mouth and not 1 adult see what happened. My son was the one who got hurt yet the assistant principal sent my son to the office indicating he was in trouble and I never received a call."

    "I have two sons that attend Oakdale School and they both love it! My oldest has been in Oakdale for 3 years now and my youngest son just started Kindergarden and it helps make my life easier as a mother to know that both my boys are happy and well taught in Oakdale School."
