Oak River School is committed to the development of the whole child. Our goal is to provide a framework in which each child, with the support of their parents and their educators, develops a desire to do his or her best.
We strive to recognize and accommodate individual student needs and differences, to establish our programs to foster the development of healthy attitudes and ideals, and to provide a variety of educational experiences that address the child's academic, physical, emotional, and social well being. In this way we endeavor to prepare students to become responsible, considerate, contributing citizens of our community.
We believe that a child's success depends on the involvement and support of all stakeholders - parents, students, school staff, and community. We, at Oak River School, are committed and dedicated to fostering this partnership.
