We can all agree that in order to have a great school for students to thrive in, you must have at its core outstanding and caring teachers. Mrs. Rachel Lang of Oxford Preparatory Academy South Orange County (OPA-SOC) is exactly that type of teacher, providing her students over her tenure at OPA-SOC a wonderful teaching classroom and environment for her students to thrive, grow, and learn.

Mrs. Rachel Lang’s employment was separated from OPA-SOC involuntarily at the conclusion of this school year, which caught many of our OPA families by surprise.

Her responsibility and commitment to her students are unquestioned, but really was on display in extraordinary measure in 2019-2020 as we all had to adjust to remote learning in this Covid-19 environment. She was the voice of calm, hope, fairness, and reason to not only her Kindergarten students, but also for us parents, who she often guided and reassured that we could partner with her and provide exceptional distance learning to our OPA champions during these unprecedented times.

OPA’s motto of “We believe that all students are unique and gifted individuals” is better served with teachers like Mrs. Lang, who not only instilled in her students Respect for Others, Integrity of Character, and Spirit of Unselfishness, but also embodied and displayed those OPA tenets herself--everyday--for her students to model and emulate. Her commitment to her students and her professionalism we feel truly made a mark on both our OPA champions, as well as the school.

We the undersigned want to voice our strong displeasure and opposition that this decision was made, and respectfully request for the Oxford Preparatory Academy Board of Directors to further investigate the grounds for Mrs. Lang’s dismissal. We also kindly ask that the Board of Directors reverse this decision and push for her reinstatement.

Kind regards,

Parents for Our Beloved Mrs. Lang
