    Oakdale has the potential for being an awesome school but it definitely needs some restructuring and better leadership. The principal lacks leadership and relies a great deal on her support staff who are clearly not qualified for such responsibilities. A degree doesn't make you automatically qualified for such roles. If your child(ren) have any type of behavioral mental or learning disabilities please consider another school where they're willing to accommodate their needs. Last year my 6 year old son who is diagnosed with a mental disability had to experience being arrested by CMSPD upon the request of Dean Gaines-Montgomery. Her action clearly confirmed my child's future was not in her best interest. I was involved from day one but unfortunately it was like pulling teeth to receive the adequate support & effort needed for my son to be successful while at Oakdale. Parent involvement at the school is very low therefore possibly my efforts were unexpected. Now that he is at a new school receiving the support & encouragement needed to thrive he's doing awesome! Never let anyone deny your child(ren) an education they deserve!

    This school SUCKS!!!! SO unprofessional and very unorganized!!! Went and registered my daughter for school and I go to the open house and she is not even in the system yet. Then I call back on Friday and still nothing and she starts school on Monday. SO she doesn't even know who her teacher is or anything. Then I don't understand the schedule. My husband and myself have to go to work at 8 00AM but yet she cannot be to school until 8 15. What kind of elementary school don't start until 8 45. I wish my daughter did not have to go to this sorry school.

    Oakdale Elementary has alot of heart my granchildren love it. Teachers and staff have always been open and freindly. When the school seen something that may be an deterent for learning there was a meeting and more that one person from the school showed up for support to ask how can we help. When I drop of my granchildren or visit the school there are freindly smiling faces that I see-showing me the right people are here and enjoying their job with our precious children. Over all a great school very happy with it. One thing to impove is the crosswalk to the school sometimes the gate is locked and children have to walk around through the parking lot when crossing with the crossing gaurd.

    This school is terrible. The new principle lacks leadership and is oblivious to what goes on around her nothing ever gets done. A lot of talking is done but no results. The staff have been rude and unprofessional on several occasions and I have witnessed teachers speaking to the students very rudely. PARENTS if your children attend this school watch them closely and become active in the school. I have never experienced anything like this at a school and I hope I never will again.

    Enjoyed my visit! I think the assistant teacher had room for improvement though. The office staff were friendly and made me feel welcomed.
