    I feel so blessed that all 3 of my children have attended Oak Meadow Elementary. All 3 of them have excelled in their education due to the team effort you will find at this wonderful school. As a working parent it is such a relief to know that they truly care about my children and their success. Its all about communication and you will get that from the staff at Oak Meadow. You just need to ask...and they will be there to help....Go Raptors! Xcountry rocks!

    We have been extremely pleased with the quality of the teachers and the overall quality of the school. I do wish there were a stronger GATE program but my kids are challenged by their individual teachers who have thankfully been willing to go the extra mile and find work and homework that best meets their needs. We are very happy and cannot fathom why people in the area would ever consider private schools when such great public schools are available.

    I really like the school and teachers. They have been very helpful with getting my oldest son on track and more focused on his work. My middle son is above average and has been given opportunities to continue to rise above. I look forward to having my third son start kindergarten there!

    Oak Meadow has been the primary reason that my kids have experienced such strong academic sucess over the elementary years. My son who was an average student is now a great student. My daughter has been supported 100% by the teachers and staff to maintain the highest academic strandard and straight A's. My youngest daughter Hunter is starting kidergrten in the Fall and we can't wait. With teachers like Mrs. Heglie Mrs Randolph Mrs Palmer and Mr Frame...You Can't Go Wrong. Not to mention the great support from Mrs Narez and the fabulous office staff. The community of El Dorado Hills is still the best around. Outside of some of the highest school API scores EDH has the finest sports programs Dance Schools and Theater programs. Thank You Oak Meadow.

    A wonderful school. The teachers and administration are very helpful and supportive.

    This school is great if you are a parent who can spend a lot of time at the school volunteering and if you happen to be in the right social click. Most teachers are more concerned about giving a lot of busy work for homework and by the time that is done the kids are tired and there is little time left to focus on things like studying the math facts. Overall this school fails to deliver.

    I love Oak Meadow! It is a great school with hard working caring teachers. They give our children the tools and knowledge to succeed in school. The part some parents forget is they are the ones to follow-up and help your child learn with love and encouragement.

    Was not happy with this school at all!!! They wanted my kindergartener held back and wanted me to hold off on putting his younger brother in kindergarten for another year. I have since enrolled both my children in a different school in a different district. I now have a first grader and an a kindergartener in an advanced class. If i had followed through with Oak Meadow's recommendations both my older children would have suffered greatly academically and socially. I would never recommend it to anyone.

    This school has been a wonderful setting for my children and I will be sad when they move on. They both love attending and dislike weekends and holidays when they are not able to attend. The teachers are experienced innovative and caring. Extracurricular programs are increasing and offer plenty of choice for an elementary school. Plenty of parental involvement. Individual attention is provided whenever necessary. The non-teaching staff are 5 star! Great school!

    Oak Meadow seems like a great school but fails to deliver. Classes are overcrowded with students teachers provide little individual attention to students and there is little enrichment opportunity or 'going deep' in terms of educational experience. One teacher was extremely focused on 'teaching to the test'. In general the school does not adequately promote individuality creativity or critical thinking. It provides opportunity for cursory learning in a generic environment (reflective to a great extent of the larger EDH community). On the upside the school is new clean and the teachers and staff are nice if nothing else.

    Overall we are impressed with the school. There is a high level of parent involvement. I have seen few extracurricular activities until the later grades (my son is in first). Our only concern is that the teachers have to get all the kids to the minimun standards. So I worry that the gifted talented bright and above average students may not get all they need as the funding goes to the students in danger of not meeting the 'standards'.

    Oak Meadow is a wonderful community focused elementary school. The principal ensures that all students recieve a great balance of both core academics and non-traditional learning experiences such assemblies with wild life rescue animals or martial arts demonstrations. Parents are very active both in the classrooms and in support of school activities. Oak Meadow is a year round school with several tracks to chose from. I have two children attending and would highly recommend this school to anyone moving into the area.

    For a 'new' school Oak Meadow has some of the most experienced teachers in the district. They work as a team with parents and community to truly create an atmosphere of community. The school is still relatively small though growing year over year but it is not losing that small school feel where everyone knows eachother. Parental involvement is fabulous. As a new school it is experiencing some growing pains the library is not full yet some programs are not completely up to speed however this is steadily improving.

    I couldn't ask for a better place to educate my children. The teachers and administration are very passionate about what they do. They strive to produce results beyond the state standards for all the children. The parent support and participation is amazing! The school strives to build a 'community' atmosphere among the students of all grades! This makes for a wonderful opportunity for social growth and involvement for our children to build self-esteem amongst peers of all age groups.

    Oak Meadow Elementary is a superb school. The principal is simply awesome and the teachers go above and beyond for every child. I am very involved with the school- in PTA the classroom and school district committee so I can confidently speak from a position of authority. I would love to see the school rank as one of the top schools in the district and state and believe that with the continued leadership it currently has this is quite possible. As with all public schools due to the severe budget cut backs the extra-curricular activities offered is not as robust as it could be. The PTA and Bright Ideas are doing a phenomenal job filling in these areas.

    I came from private schooling thinking I would never adjust to public school..WRONG. Oak Meadow has provided the most academic program! My children were actually a bit behind when they started. The principal and staff are simply the best. The families are active and the district is great.
