    "To the parents who are from out of district - GO SOMEWHERE ELSE if you're not happy here - PLEASE!!! My kids would have been LAUSD and we chose happily to come to OPUSD where the teachers are amazing and the students are intellectually way above other school districts. We're now in district and love our school and our kids are learning, excelling and doing better than 99% of other schools around the country. Our teachers are over burdened with too many students, I agree, HOWEVER, our students are still way above most other schools in the country. The PFA (the same 20 volunteers out of a school of 625) sees that teachers get classroom aides, MUSIC, P.E., computer classes and more! Try going to LAUSD or other school districts and see what you get for your measly $10 donation. The only reason I gave a four is because if you have a special needs child this is NOT the district for you. If your child does not fit into the "box" go somewhere else as fast as you can. They try to help, but special needs does not ultimately help district scores, and that is all the Superintendent cares about."

    "Red Oak is a wonderful school! The teachers care about the children! My children are excelling there! I couldn't be happier! If you are unhappy with the school, you have a choice to leave. I think you are afraid of what you will find somewhere else."

    "If you don't like Red Oak, then leave. :-) I went there back in the early 90's and now I own 2 homes and making well over $250,000 a year. So...now my kids will go there."

    "This school is completely overrated! All of the hype this school district does is ridiculous. After actually being inside the school and seeing what really goes on, we are completely disappointed with the lack of quality teaching and will look elsewhere. There is NO differentiation whatsoever and the teachers have every child do the exact same thing. Our child came into first grade with very high math skills and he is forced to sit and do dittos after he finishes his work. When you ask the primary grade teachers for more challenging material for your child, they come up with excuses as to why they cannot provide it. The amount of dittos that are used are unbelievable. Our child's current teacher uses intimidation tactics to "manage" her class and she clearly likes to assert her power over the parents if they do not do what she wants. The principal is useless and seems as though he is managed by the teachers. With all of the money and parent participation this school receives, it's very disappointing to see how poorly they perform. The reason their test scores are so high is because children come in with high skills beforehand, not from the teachers doing anything special."

    "Totally agree with the previous reviewers. OPUSD had gone way too far with the district of choice program. Classes are way over-sized. Elementary schools have 30 kids per class, middle is 35 to 40 per class and high is 40 to 50. What kinds of quality education we can talk about in this situation. The only winner in here is oversized and high inefficient OPUSD administration that enjoys a steady flow of $ from the out-of-distrci students, while Oak Park residents and especially OP kids are the one who suffer the consequences including declining quality of education, increased traffic, loss of community values and as a result loss of property value. On top of that OP residents continue to pay the parcel tax to keep the OPUSD party going. Just check how many negative reviews were posted this year about all OPUSD schools and how the test scores had dropped. But don't worry the OPUSD administration will continue to send us cheerful emails telling that things had never been better, and if there is anyone to blame for the poor performance of OPUSD schools that would be the California government and Oak Park resident who (stupid them) don't want to pay more taxes."
