Message from Our Principal

Dear Families, 
Welcome to White Oaks! I look forward to continuing our vision of providing an innovative and engaging learning experience that will foster the development of the whole child. 

Our dedicated teachers work collaboratively to create a well-rounded curriculum that encompasses all aspects of our instructional program. We are committed to: 

• Academic Excellence and the 5Cs
• Project-Based Learning and Personalizing Learning
• Active, Playful Learning and Tinkering
• A Focus on the Whole Child
• A Caring and Supportive Learning Community

Young learners naturally develop along their own unique time tables. Teachers expertly watch for moments when children are ready to take their next steps. We honor each child by celebrating progress, guiding students to set and self-assess learning goals, and partnering with parents to identify learning opportunities both inside and outside of school. 

We embrace the challenges of the future while we continue to cherish the traditions of the past. Our remarkable staff, involved parents and inspiring students come together to make White Oaks a wonderful and unique place.
