The Oaks Private School strives for the highest levels of academic achievement while emphasizing that education is comprised of more than academic effort and success. True education should be a lifelong pursuit that incorporates the essential elements of learning blended with individualized academic planning, creative freedom, and the development of such character traits as personal integrity, honesty, self-discipline, and respect for others. We firmly believe that there is a direct relationship between these qualities of character and academic excellence that leads to a student’s ultimate positive contribution to the community. Therefore, we strive to develop these positive qualities of character in our students and require these values of our teachers and staff.
