I have had my two grandchildren with Oakwood Schools for a total of 3 years. As the primary caregiver, I have visited and researched other public/private schools in my area and I feel that I have found the best school that best fits my needs for these children. My youngest one attends the preschool. The teachers are very caring and concerned. My granddaughter always comes home with fun stories about what's she learned in school. My other grandchild attends the elementary side. My grandson has one of the best 1st grade teachers ever. I feel she has gone above and beyond her duties to make sure my grandson has the tools and resources he needs to excel. He has struggled in certain areas but with her constance assurance and confidence building he is blossoming into a top scholar. He is happy and looking forward to summer and attending a new fall year at Oakwood Academy. I'm very pleased with the school and the curriculum and the discipline policy at the school. The office staff are always helpful. Ms. Jennifer is always there to listen to any concerns I may have and we collectively come up with solutions. She is the best, she is not just a Principal but has become a confidant. She cares about the school and the students and it shows.

This review is way overdo...I enrolled my now 3 and 4 year children to Oakwood Academy Preschool since they were both 2yrs old. After searching and visiting several schools, I found that this is where I wanted my children to attend. It has been the best decision ever. I have seen my children learn so much. They come home singing songs and talking about their teachers. My husband and I feel very comfortable leaving our children there. The staff has excellent communication skills. Ms Paradise goes above and beyond for her students. My daughter has been fortunate to have her for 2 academic school years. Really wish we can bring her along more years. My son loves Ms Jacinia and Ms Khalifa. He even gets upset if we leave without giving them a hug. Ms Ana is always around helping and engaging with the staff, children and parents. Awesome work Ms Ana. The Director Ms Cathie, is on top of every thing that goes on. She is absolutely phenomenal! If your not sure where to enroll your child, try this place, you'll love it!!!
My two young sons have thrived at Backyard Friends! Six months ago when I enrolled my 3 year old he was just beginning to talk, he has now blossomed into a talking machine and is quickly catching up to his friends! Gina and Heather have helped tremendously with his speech and with potty training. Our previous daycare provider would not help potty train at all, even though he has potty training at home and doing great. Gina helped with no questions. My 2 year old is also doing great! Gina has a perfect balance of play and education. The kids are always so proud of their project, which they do everyday. Whether it's a mask or a picture or practicing numbers and letters they can't wait to show it off. I honestly could not be happier than I am with Gina and Heather and neither could my boys. Every time we pass by both boys excitedly yell "Gina's House!" I am so glad I was introduced to Backyard Friends and I appreciate Gina and Heather more than they could now.
