    White Oak Elementary is an excellent school. My child is in Kindergarten and reading on 3rd grade level. I could not be more pleased with this school.

    The teachers are amazing at White Oak! They are innovative creating new programs (like INTECC) to help the kids grow and succeed. My son has always struggled in school but since he has been going here for 3 years he has advanced in so many areas and his confidence has never been better.

    This is an amazing school. I say that because the faculty actually loves what they do and that makes a big difference. The Principal is caring a problem solver and really cares about the well being and education of the students. My son started Kindergarten this year and I was a bit worried but he loves it and his teacher Ms. Hausknecht is wonderful! She holds the kids to standards and reinforces with positive encouragement. We couldn't have been blessed more with a wonderful school and teacher. The PTA is a wonderful group of women whose goal is the students and school. Join if you get a chance!

    White Oak Elementary is an excellent school! My son is in First Grade. He has an excellent teacher who thinks outside the box. My son loves the school. Parents involvement are encouraged and appreciated by the school. The Principal is friendly and hardworking. She is kind and its great to see her smilling and greeting visitors and children when she walks around. She has an open door management policy and a problem solver. She has great vision for the school. This is an award winning school hopefully the school will achieve Gold standard someday in the future with all the dedicated and hardworking teachers and staff. The school do emphasis on reading and writing and is building up their science curriculum. They have an awesome media center (library) computer labs and science labs. My son uses the computer for his math lessons. He loves math. We are very proud that our son is doing well and learning alot from his First Grade teacher Mrs. Easton. She made school fun for him. She is tough and have high standards but she keeps the children interested in learning. Awesome teacher! White Oak Elementary has all the right elements for a child to succeed!
