About Our School
Welcome to Oaks Middle School and the 2018-2019 school year. I am Dr. Foley, the proud principal of Oaks Middle School. I have the great privilege of working with amazingly talented students who continue to reach and exceed our high expectations. Our staff members are dedicated and highly qualified professionals actively engaged in their life-long learning. Our parents and guardians are supportive and take an active role in their child’s education. Our students, staff and parents make Oaks Middle School a superb place to learn, work, and visit.
Oaks Middle School is an AVID National Demonstration School, an AVID Site of Distinction and recently was rewarded the AVID Site Team Advocacy award – one of five AVID schools chosen in the State of California. Oaks Middle School has been awarded the PBIS Gold award for three consecutive years.
One of the benefits of being an AVID Demonstration school is having the opportunity to share the wonderful accomplishments of our students and staff members to visiting educators from the Western region. As we walk the campus with our guests, they often share insightful educational practices that are highly successful at their sites. Explicit feedback and fresh ideas keep our campus vibrant – which leads to continuous improvement through collaboration. We take tremendous pride in our Interactive Notebooks, Collaborative Study Groups and continuous infusion of technology in our classes.
Our mission is to prepare our students for college and career readiness. AVID school-wide plays a key role in preparing our students to be successful in high school, college and in their future careers. Students from Oaks Middle School have attended some of the top colleges and universities in the nation.
Currently, our AVID School-wide Career and College Readiness program supports 10 sections (roughly 30% of our students) and we are striving to ensure that WICOR strategies are utilized in all of our classrooms. Please, let me ask you… Is your child’s binder organized? Pick it up, turn it upside down and give it a shake. Did anything fall out?
I enjoy sharing two slogans with our students that have proven to be beneficial in my life. They are: “Hard Work Pays Off” and “Never, Never, Never Give Up.” Here are a few examples of how hard work has paid off: Our Eagle Pride Marching Band and Auxiliaries have been in competition for over 20 years and have received numerous awards. A significant portion of our students have been identified as Gifted and Talented. Our technology classes, chess and dance teams have earned top honors. We have winning sports teams, an amazing Choir and continuously celebrate our students’ and staffs’ successes with rallies and awards.
