The mission of Silver Oak Elementary School is to develop the intellectual, physical, and emotional capacities of each child to the fullest extent possible so that each can lead a fulfilling life as a productive worker, citizen, and individual in our society.
Students will be supported in thinking creatively and critically, and be able to adapt to change. They will develop skills in acquiring, filtering, processing, and using information to make effective decisions and to communicate with others. They will develop self-esteem by participating in a caring school community which appreciates diversity, tolerance, mutual respect, cooperation toward team goals, and a love for learning that will last a lifetime.
Silver Oak will explore new horizons beyond traditional modes of instruction. Using technology is an important tool that will assist students in actively participating in their own learning. Teachers guide the learning process, set goals, and evaluate outcomes. Students will be responsible co-owners of the learning process.
Silver Oak School will foster a learning environment to enhance every student's ability to make sense of and take an active part in the world of the 21st century.
