  •  Highlights

    The following school highlights are just a few of the things that make Oakland Elementary School an amazing place to learn and grow! These four items should allow you to see the rigorous learning, diverse experiences, and supportive culture that exists in our school. In Henry County Schools, we believe in giving every student a high quality, world-class education and we believe these highlights display our passion and commitment to do just that.

    OES picStudent Outcomes
    Successful student outcomes at Oakland Elementary are a priority. Our commitment to student success aligns with Henry County’s core beliefs. We believe each student can learn at or above grade level and deserves the opportunity to do so. Our teachers provide clear learning targets and quality instruction through a balanced model across all content areas. Students have the opportunity to engage in meaningful and rigorous, standards-based learning activities that equip them with the skills, knowledge, attitudes, and aptitudes that will enable their success. In addition to quality instruction and learning, we understand the importance of family involvement in ensuring student academic success. Keeping parents informed on learning goals and student progress is crucial. We also provide information and resources to parents to help their child learn at home. This collaboration supports student movement through the academic levels towards mastery.                                                                                                             
    All involved in the success of our students work collaboratively to consistently analyze assessment data using specific protocols. Struggling students are identified and specific strategies are chosen to re-engage those students for additional support. Students who are excelling can also be identified through this process and receive enrichment sessions to move them further in their learning. Oakland Elementary is committed to academic progress by providing an equitable, high-quality education, building meaningful relationships, and developing lifelong learners.

    OES picStudent Opportunities
    Oakland Elementary offers expanded learning opportunities for students in safe, structured, and engaged learning environments during the traditional school day. These programs support and complement students’ talents and interests while building positive character and self-esteem. Programs such as Science Fair, Econ Games, Accelerated Reader, and Accelerated Math offer more personalized learning opportunities for students to excel academically. Literacy Day and Spelling Bee allow students the opportunity to expand their knowledge of literacy while showcasing unique talents through spelling, poetry recitation, writing, and drama performances. Other programs such as Safety Patrol and PBIS Student Ambassadors help students develop leadership, human relations, and communication skills in order to produce student leaders that are positive role models in our school.
    These programs along with our continuous goal of building student leaders is why it is great to be an Oakland Owl! Opportunities for Wisdom, Leadership, and Success

    OES picClimate and Culture
    Spanning over 30 years, Oakland Elementary has served the educational needs of the students in the surrounding communities of Henry County, one of the state's fastest-growing areas. As a Title I school, Oakland is positioned to offer its students and families many great resources to support the educational growth of its students.

    Oakland Elementary is very proud of its growing partnership and relationship with the families of its students. Every member of our school staff actively participates in cultivating these relationships and providing the tools parents and family members need to help their students become life-long learners and succeed in life.

    Throughout the school year, Oakland holds many family academic events that offer hands-on activities for parents to be better equipped to help their students. One such event was our Drive-through Literacy Night, where families were invited to drive through and receive literacy activity packets, free books and refreshments.

    Just a few parents’ remarks regarding this event include:
    “I’m happy to see Oakland offering this kind of event. Any time the school can offer any type of extra help for me, I will take it.”
    “I love the drive-through events.
    My son really enjoyed Science Night and all the activities we did together at home.”
    “My son loves to read! I want him to read as much as possible as he gets ready for Middle School. These activities are a great help.”
    Other events throughout the year include Math Night, Science Night, Test Prep, school transition and Kindergarten readiness.

    • Georgia Student Health Survey Responses
    • Literacy Proficiency Rates

    The Georgia Student Health Survey is given to all k-12 students in Georgia in the spring of each school year. It is composed of a variety of questions that help our district better understand the student experience in our schools. The literacy information is calculated as the percentage of students reading on or above grade level determined by scores on the Milestones End-of-Grade assessments for 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade in English Language Arts. Each of these data components can be viewed for the previous three years. For more information about these measurements, please access the Oakland Elementary School website.
