Oakland Elementary School Reviews
Oakland is an awesome school
During my time I visited I learned that the teachers there work hard to help the students there.
There are some very good, responsible teachers at Oakland but there are few who are there for the payck. They have a few who do not have their teaching certificate. They have their degree but no teaching certificate. The state of TN allows a teacher three years to get his/her certificate and then they should not be allowed to teach. Why is it Oakland Ele. has at least two that still do not have their certificate and have been teaching there for over three years?
What about the re-zoning of the area? Many parents who moved to Oakland so their child/children could go to school at Oakland Ele. will have their child going to schools that are out of Oakland City limits. This is ridiculous! Why hasn't the county commisioners put the new zoning in the paper for the parents to see? Some parents are clueless as to this going on and will not find out until they register their child/children. What a way to find out your child is not in the Oakland Ele. district. The commisioners need to act more responsibily about this matter.
Oakland Elementary is a PK-3 school. The 4-5 graders are at Southwest Elementary which is 15 minutes away from Oakland Elementary (in another town). 6-8 graders go to West Jr High School which is in Oakland City Limits. Love Oakland, but hate the District. Our schools are overcrowded and our children have to go to schools that arent even in our town due to County refuses to build schools where we need them. The county has only 1 high school which is also about 15-20 minutes away in another town. I would not recommend sending your child to Fayette County Schools! I suggest not living here period! The tax money that Fayette Countians pay does not go to where it is needed. Too many shady politicians and one of the county commisioners is also over the school board...and yet the schools doesnt have money to build more schools that we need when there has been a huge population growth in the City of Oakland which in return would even produce more taxpayers paying tax dollars.. Wheres the money FAYETTE COUNTY??!!
