    "I am terrified to send my children to Oxford High School. The quality of parents in this district are directly reflected in the children. The sports programs are awful and quite honestly, a good ol boy network is well and alive as far as sports go. The coaches and teachers are simply not invested in growth and hence the children suffer and are a laughing stock amongst their peers at other great schools (Kennett, Avon Grove and Unionville). Again, terrified and sickened that Oxford is the district I purchased a home in with hopes that it would improve. There is a lack of private school options in the area and Avon Grove Charter School is outstanding academically but has no sports."

    "What more can you ask from a high school, note the parent involvement in this school is average. I think our active involvement and the way we live, created the foundation for our son to make the right decisions when he was on his own in school. Our son was not traumatize by this move into 10th grade here, and he graduated in the top 7%. This a bad bunch of kids here as with anywhere, yet he is well balanced, found his way and tutored math, did sports, appreciated the differences in people, and had fun. The teachers are dedicated and most are raised here or nearby. It is a beautiful school and well maintained."

    "Oxford High School has been a real disappointment to us. We are fortunate in having highly motivated kids. Those kids who aren't highly motivated don't fare very well. Many children fall through the cracks. The school cares predominantly about test scores rather than the content of a given course. We have had occasion to try to speak with the administrators and the principal regarding an individual circumstance and we were met with complete and utter resistance. Not only did they fail to adequately address our concerns, they were concurrently deeply unpleasant to deal with. Oxford's priorities appear to lie in the realm of sports and appearance (a mosaic of a hornet in the lobby of the middle school) at the expense of worthy programs that enable kids, in this complex world, to function well. The teachers, however, are dedicated though overworked professionals. We have been impressed by many of them."

    "The academics in this school are good on the honors and AP levels, but once students are in eleventh grade, they don't even have the option of taking all of those classes. Exrtacurricular activities are available, and the basketball teams are great. Parents tend to be more involved with their childrens' sports lives than academically. Oxford has poor test scores, but is now noticing an improvement because of the principal who has been with the school for two years now. He's definitely great."

    "I have only been here for 2 years, but my daughter has had a pretty positive experience. She is involved in the Chorus program and she enjoyed the Interior Design classes they offered. So far I have seen nothing but good things. I have emailed teachers many times and had almost immediate response from them. New high school being built and should be occupied this school year beginning in September."
