    "Oakton is the first public school my daughter (a professor at Northwestern) has used for her five year old daughter here in Evanston, and we have been thrilled with it. Her teacher, Mr New, was not only a talented educator, but funny as well - the kind of teacher who draws kids in and relaxes them, but then takes the time to note individual approaches to learning. Really wonderful. The classroom itself was large, bright and merry, and the kids had interested, open attitudes whenever we visited. We wanted a diverse population for our adopted Ethiopian daughter and not only got that, but were very impressed by how educated and verbal the parents themselves were in discussing general elementary school issues. They have Spanish emersion classes but we didn't apply for them - I think it's sort of a lottery at the kindergarten level. Our one concern was that there was lots of waving in the halls and cheery greetings on the fly on the part of the principal, but not much other exposure."

    "Unconditionally.. Oakton's Elementary (Staff') Will...For their students...Is an.."Early/Continous Life Educational Experience",,.consisting of an.."One On One"..."Child/Parent"..guidance/support... to their "Students" Well Being/Educational Needs...As I"ve noticed/witnessed..."Oakton Elementary"...Is an "No Nonsence/Zero Tolerance"...from it's Staff...inregards to "Any Child Left Behnd"...regarding their "Abilities" to "Succeeding"! Again...wish to include..."ALL" of Oakton's Goals for the "Success" of their "Students"...surely Falls under their "Goal" in "Making an Difference" in the "Life" of their "Students"...But Again...It takes an "Village" to "Raise/Teach an Child".. This is where...Oakton Elementary School..Falls Under..Teaching their Students...Reaching Out to it's "Parents"...for "The Greater Educational Being/Achievements of their Childrens/Students!!!!!"

    "At first we were a bit nervous about sending our son here, because of the school's low test scores. We were so wrong! Our son has flourished here, and we are very happy with having him attend our local school."

    "Fabulous school. My three children have excelled there. Great teachers who get to know and show concern for each student. The creativity and inspiration of the teachers has been remarkable. The principal is approachable and willing to work with parents. I have found the curriculum to be very challenging. Children learn how to work independently and also how to work in groups. We enjoy the wonderfully diverse student population and the different ethnicities are shared and appreciated in a very relaxed environment."
