This school and it's teachers are professional and strive everyday to give our children of the future the tools they need to be successful and independent. This Montessori program offers everything that Montessori is based on. All of the learning and life skills activities are at eye level to the children. The children are encouraged to be independent, responsible and disciplined in their daily activities as well as their academics. Most of the students are testing above average for their age group. I would suggest this school to EVERYONE and ANYONE.

As a previous student of the school I have a different perspective to offer. I went to this school for all of my schooling through 8th grade. I am so grateful that my parents believed in Montessori and in the school to let me keep learning and growing at the school until I graduated in 8th grade. I loved going to school at Oakridge, and I know when I have kids they will go to the same school if I am living in Yakima. This school gave me the best start to life. The school fostered a love of learning and respect along with many other things. People can say what they want, but I know from being a student, and from helping out on my days off from school that this school is the only school in the valley I would send my child to. I also know others who have their children in the school currently, and they and their children love it. As a student you will learn more, remember more, have a better attitude about school and learning, learn life long skills, and go to a school that has more to offer than public school and you will gain more in return as I did.

My child went to Oakridge some years back, and I am still appalled at the unprofessional (disorganized, impulsive and even hostile) communication by Administration. People either love this school or hate it. It seems to depend upon whether the Director personally likes you and your child.

We have loved our experience with Oakridge thus far. I was originally planning to home school, but my son had other plans. When he asked if he could go to school with the other kids we looked around for a good public school and enrolled him in K. He loved it, for 2 months. When I went to find out what was going on I discovered it was a really poor situation and would not be helped by moving to another public school, so we needed another solution ASAP. I thought I'd have to return to my original plan of homeschooling, but we decided to tour Oakridge just to find out more. I am so glad we did. When my husband and I saw what the program was and met the teachers at Oakridge we knew that we had found the right school. Our son tried it out and it fit so well he started the next day. 3 months later he still loves going, and he is being challenged every day. He also has made some wonderful friends. One day I went to pick him up and realized that all of the teachers knew him. It has been a really amazing experience and we are looking forward to the Ranch next year.
