We love The Oaks. I cannot say enough good things about it! We have one child who went all the way through (K-6), and a child who is still there. The teachers are wonderful: dynamic, smart, kind, skillful, compassionate, warm, and engaging. The administration is helpful, responsive, and kind. Our kids LOVE school. Our younger child runs out the door every morning to get there, and our older child loved every minute of The Oaks. I feel The Oaks is a place where a love of learning is thoughtfully cultivated, and where kids are really seen and known for who they are by their teachers and peers. They are taught to be curious, to collaborate, to be critical thinkers, to take risks, to make mistakes, and to engage in the world around them. This all happens while learning all they need to know and beyond for middle school. We have made lifelong friends there. It is an amazing place, and we are very grateful to be a part of the community!
