  • I was truly blessed to attend Oyster Elementary School. I was born in Washington, D.C. to immigrant parents. At Oyster I not only learned English but I was able to learn Spanish at the same time. This has made me extremely valuable to my employers and it has opened many doors for me throughout my life. The education at Oyster was priceless and if I'm still in the D.C. area when my children are born I wouldn't hesitate one bit to send them there.
