Oakwood School's Vision Statement

We strive to be a high performing school that fosters:

Innovative Learning

Responsive Citizenship

Our Belief Statements

We believe…

…that learning is an on-going process for both adults and students.

…that engaging students in the learning process should be our ultimate goal.

…that it is the teachers' and the principals’ collective responsibility to assure that each child has a successful experience in school, academically, socially, and emotionally.

…that students learn best when they feel safe.

…in the power of research-based teaching, instructional leadership, and PLC planning.

…that the staff must model what it expects children to do and learn.

...that data drives instruction. Through flexible grouping and differentiated instruction, all students will reach their learning potential.

…in supporting and assisting teachers and staff in their efforts to assure each child’s success.

…that Oakwood students may start out small, but grow to be great.

…that a school is effective only if all teachers across all grade levels work together as a problem-solving group to address issues which arise concerning the improvement of the school and relationships within the school.

…that together we will have an outstanding year.
