    Oak hill elementary is a school where the principal makes everyone parents and children feel unwelcomed and uncomfortable. She treats the children like they are in a military school and has no business being a principal of an elementary school. She has no leadership qualities whatsoever!!!

    Oak Hill Elementary is an exemplary school; excellent tests scores and student behavior is a testament to the staff's diligence and skill. Leadership is strategic and strong; teachers are compassionate and support driven and parental involvement while limited consists of fine parents who offer tremendous support and resources.
