About Us


Our OAK community cultivates resilient, engaged, and self-determined scholars who demonstrate the integrity, hope, knowledge, and skills that support the pursuit of personal achievement, racial social justice, and wellness. Students will confidently master grade-level content and leave our school ready to take on the next steps in their academic journey and their future endeavors. They will know they matter and be empowered to maximize their potential to make changes in our school and world. They will be prepared to disrupt systems of oppression by honoring and celebrating our community’s cultures, histories, ancestries, experiences, abilities, and languages. Students, families, and staff will feel joy in knowing they belong to a community where everyone is loved, safe, seen, heard, and understood.

  • At OAK everyone develops leadership, collaboration, creativity, critical thinking, and problem solving skills. 
  • We learn from our experiences, both past and present, and reflect and take ownership for our future actions. 
  • Our curriculum is representative of who we are and supports real-world learning with a focus on both racial social justice and mastery of grade-level standards.
