I am a former teacher at this school. If a child learns that they can mouth off to a teacher and that teacher will be ignored when seeking back up from the front office then the child will be running the school. There is no discipline here. The kids speak poorly and the teachers take offense if you point it out. I was told by numerous teachers that 'Thas how we talks and yooz just a craker theses kids don t need no diction lessons' That is directly from a former colleague of mine there! It is criminal; they are condemning these children to second class lives. If my child were a student here I would be a negligent parent. DR Williams is an incompetent who uses the word irregardless ! What does that tell you? You mine as well not send your kid to school if this is their district.

Our daughter began the 8th grade at this school. The principle has had an open door policy for us to come in with any concerns. All of her teachers have provided great feedback on what we can do to help our daughter improve her grades. We've noticed a great increase in parent involvement since we've been at Oxon Hill Middle School. It's a big improvement based on the comments that we read about the school before we moved here from Seattle.
This school has a lack of communication with parents. The policy's of the school as well as the curriculum needs to be reviewed.
I to have a problem with the school I had to call the principal because the teacher never returned my call which I left 4 messages in a three week time. The communication is so bad
I also find that this school have a problem with communication between the teacher and the parent. I wonder what ever happened to teacher who cares about the child's future.
I too found the communication between the School and the parents to be lacking. I was very discouraged to find out that some of the teachers don't bother to call the parents until after they issue bad grades. I meet with one teacher who infomred me that she had too many kids in her class and could not get them to keep quiet so she based her grades on 3 class assignments. This is only her 2nd year teaching and it shows.
I am very disappointed in the lack of communication between the school and parents. On the 1st day of school my daughter was informed of the change in school uniforms which meant that I spent money on clothes she can't wear. She was told that I (who is unemployed) have to purchase her Polo shirts from a vendor at $18 ea. If this is how you communicate w/the parents how do you communicate with the STUDENTS.
