    We were totally not impressed at all with red oak. The PTO is very very clicky and the higher level staff likes to talk down to people as if you aren't as educated as they are.

    My daughter is in Kindergarden at Red Oak Ele. and we could not have better parent/teacher communication/dedication. Parents are very active in the classroom and with special projects. We are very blessed to have Christian leaders for our children.

    Red Oak Elementary is a great school. It has wonderful and helpful teachers. My child is in the 3rd grade and I have really enjoyed his experience at this school. I wish all schools could be this great.

    Older school very clicky. Could be a better school if students were treated equal. There are alot of hypocrites that don't pratice what they preach. If your not in a certain group your child may be treated different. The people on the PTA are shallow and act nice to your face but watch your back! The same people tell their children who to play with and not play with. What a shame!
