Open Quote This school is amazing. The ratings are so low because the majority of Howard County has a racial bias towards Oakland Mills. This place is absolutely amazing and the best memories I’ve ever created have been in this building. Close Quote

Open Quote We just enrolled my daughter for her freshman year at Oakland Mills and we were greeted with the nicest staff members. We have always done private school and were a bit nervous to try a public school. They were so friendly and helpful and they were very patient with my daughter who had a ton of questions for them. I love this neiborhood and the people here are great! Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
