Oxford High School Ratings & Reviews

August 09, 2017 Submitted by a parent
If I could give Oxford City School system and Oxford High school a negative star rating I would. My experience with Oxford from 2005-2017 was a nightmare. I am not from this town, I am not a gang banger or drug dealer as previous comments state; I am a parent of a beautiful child, we have one household income of six figures, and we are humble people who do not need our income to speak for our character. With that said I was always talked down to when dealing with any employee of this system from office help, to teachers and administration. I would not recommend Oxford City Schools to anyone. I did move away for two years, and kept my home here in Oxford, and while in Florida my child attended Lecanto High School. Lecanto was ranked the best high school in the U.S. by News and World Report. It was a beautiful experience and my child enjoyed a different perspective on education. When we came back to Oxford my child was miserable again and took 12 classes just so they could graduate early to escape the charade at Oxford. If you care about your child's well being physically, emotionally, and spiritually DO NOT send your child to Oxford.

Don't Bother reading the 5 Star Reviews, its nothing but lies.As a Senior it would be best not go to this school.One reason, Money, as a "free" school you have to pay on things that aren't suppose to be paid out of your pocket.Two- drama, if you don't want your child getting arrested for something they haven't done, don't go.Three- Teachers and work, If you want to have your child stressed over work because most of students in the school doesn't do anything, teachers will pile up everything on the students, and i am not talking bout just 12th, its for the new comers for 9th grade as well.Four- dress code, Have Fun picking out new clothes for your children and seeing a lot of write up slips, your not allowed to wear a jacket or hoodie in the hall, if you do and teacher or admin would make you take it off or tuck it in, and if its a sub teacher they would usually yell at you.Five- Privacy, you know we all done this, check your phone for the time, or you get a important text, if the teacher sees you on it, take it up or they would as to unlock your phone and go through all your apps and your social media. I would continue, but thats on your decisions of giving a difficult time for your child.Its all fun to have a macbook air here, but you are always watched on screen or on the camera, at school or home.

This school is ridiculous! They have no concept of reality. The teachers and administration are more worried about the dress code violations than they are about education. Sports and looks are not what is important. Educating the children should be number one. The administration talks to you like your an idiot and they are rude and unprofessional. I will be removing my children from this school and warning everyone I can that this school is not what the reviews say it is.

The school has no concept of reality! The dress code is ridiculous, the teachers and administration are more focused on dress code violations than they are about educating the children. If you happen to have to take your child out of town for any reason please make sure you get permission from the principle or else it is not excused, unless it's to go out of town for a football game, then it is excused. Talking to anyone in the administration is worthless because they just treat you like your an idiot. This school is horrible for parents and students. I don't know how it is rated so high. I will be removing my children and warning everyone I can.

I wouldnt go back to this school if you paid me. If you're involved in extra curriculars, and shop exclusively at american eagle, you're going to be fine. But if you're not involved, and like to express yourself, you're going to suffer for it. Whoever said that people that had a hard time at OHS were just thugs, rebels, or troublemakers, seriously needs to have a reality check. I saw a straight a student have to wear a stupid hair tie in his bangs until eventually, he just had to shave his head. His hair was so curly, it stuck straight up, but they didn't care, they just pulled it into his eyes. I had another friend get sent home almost every day. One time she got in trouble for her eyeshadow being distracting (black and gold for a pep rally), her nail polish being distracting, (alternating shades of light and dark purple), her shirt being too brightly colored (neon yellow), or a small 2 inch long chain sewn into her boot that was only as thick as the average necklace. We had administrators stalk us online, they were constantly monitoring our social media, trying to find something to get us in trouble.It didn't matter to them that we kept our grades up, or that we stayed home all weekend, or that our teachers thought we were sweet, all they saw were thugs, because that's all they wanted to see.They are OBSESSED with dress code, they stop class DAILY to check for violations. They had teachers stand in the halls and stare us down as we walked to class. if your shirt came a little untucked in the back, you would get paddled. They'd do it in the hallway, to scare and intimidate us. Imagine taking a test, and in the middle of the silence, hear about 15 loud SMACK's. That was the norm.I became afraid to go to school. I was so tired of being criminalized just because i looked a bit different. I've never done drugs, and I've never broken the law, and I'm SINCERELY hurt that somebody thinks that because I stayed in trouble, that I do all of these things... that I'm THAT kind of person. I hated waking up and wondering, "what will it be today? My shirt? My jacket?" I hated the way I got treated by the very people who were entrusted to protect me. And I especially hated hearing every "model student" say that i deserved this treatment, for being different. If your child is a creative spirit, please, for the love of god, send them to white plains.
