School Reviews

  • Recommended July 31, 2014 - OUS has been a life saver for us! Our child was nervous and literally scared to death of the overcrowded public school system. He now walks into a school he loves and has a smile on his face EVERY morning. It is a huge relief as a parent to know my child is somewhere where he is anxiety free. We are really happy that he is somewhere he can be comfortable and happy for his early years. The new school facility is outstanding! The extra bonus is there is no two hour pick up/drop off line to get my child everyday. The teachers are loving and caring everyday and truly care about each child. - Posted by Parent
  • Recommended January 24, 2014 - Oxford University School is accredited by both MAIS (MS Association of Independent Schools) and SACS (Southern Association of Colleges and Schools). Our family values these accreditations when looking for a school because programs, like these mentioned, hold continual school improvement in high regard. The teachers at OUS are also top-notch. Everyone is like one big family--there is no place we would rather send our child for her education. - Posted by Parent
  • Recommended January 24, 2014 - There are not enough words to express how much we love OUS. My son has been there since he was 3, he is now in the 1st grade and we love it more each year. The administration knows my name, my son''s name and genuinely cares about all the students and parents. The teachers are fabulous. My 1st grader is now reading 4th grade words! My son never complains in the mornings, he WANTS to go to school. There is a lot of learning going on at OUS, but also a lot of fun. We have limited homework, due to small classes, so the work can actually get done at school. I love that OUS is the ONLY accredited private school in the area, and that while they use some books from Common Core, they do not practice it rigidly. I could go on and on about how happy we are with OUS. - Posted by Parent
  • Recommended January 24, 2014 - We love OUS! Have been at the school for 6 years. Teachers are awesome! My kids wake up excited to go to school and upset if I pick them up early. I''m amazed at what they''re learning. We usually have no homework so evening activities with sports and church are never a problem. I can''t say enough good things about OUS. Best decision we made after moving here from Florida. - Posted by Parent
  • Recommended January 14, 2014 - We love Oxford University School! I can''t say enough good things about this school. My child is so comfortable here and therefore he is happy to learn and grow. The teachers and staff all know us by name and you feel welcome whenever you come in the door. The smaller class environment helps make learning easier because the teacher can give each child the attention they may need. OUS has been the best option for us! I know that my child is getting a good education. - Posted by Parent
