Oakwood Primary Center Ratings & Reviews
My son entered kindergarten into the dual language program offered at oakwood sept 2006. Both k teachers have been terrific! they keep on top of everything. There is a clear balance in their teachings of the primary language english, and 2nd language, spanish. My son is already able to read in both languages(ofcourse with continued practice after school). Who said american kids aren't capable of learning 2 languages in public schools as does the rest of the world. So far we've had positive experiences with this school and look forward to our 2nd son entering k into the dual language program this fall.
The township of Huntington severely discriminates against south Huntington school district. Dix Hills school district, which has a much higher per capita income clearly receives higher qualified teachers, smaller classrooms and provide extra help for their students. South Huntington spends most of the budget on foreign ESL students which dramatically impacts the quality of academics to the rest of the students. Their is no extra help for the students and the school needs a major overhaul by the state.
My child attending Oakwood. He did well academically but had mixed experiences. He has several outstanding teachers, but the Principal leadership is weak and there is too much turnover with the Vice Principal position. There are some weak unmotivated teachers that are pulling down the outstanding teachers. They administration does not make the effort that is made in other schools in the district, even though the majority of the teachers are excellent.
