This school has some very talented and dedicated teachers particularly in the early grades. But these teachers are stymied by a curriculum that values rote learning over creativity and critical thinking. Math social studies and writing instruction are particularly poor. The teachers are also hampered by weak leadership from the principal who has no long-term vision for academic excellence. The school caters fairly well to average students. But if your child doesn't fit the narrow boxes in any way--because they're gifted because they're experiencing challenges even because they're a little quirky--then White Oaks is a bad place for them and finding supporting caring adults will be tough.
