Oak Hall Middle School faculty and administration are committed to the education of the whole child, including academic excellence, character education, physical development, and an appreciation for the arts. 

The Middle School academic curriculum stresses equally subject content and the skills of critical thinking in traditional, structured classrooms. Music, art, and drama enrich the educational experiences of our Middle School children with a variety of creative and artistic opportunities during the regular school year and in our summer enrichment programs. 

The physical education program emphasizes the importance of each student’s level of physical conditioning while also offering our students the opportunity to participate in multiple team sports and school sponsored summer programs.

We believe that the Middle School years are a decisive period in a young person’s development.

 Character education and service programs set the standards for behavior in our Middle School, and the framework of our Honor Code emphasizes the value of integrity in all student activities – academic, athletic, service, and artistic. 

Oak Hall Middle School provides a safe environment that encourages good character and close relationships between students and their teachers. Participation in service clubs, advisory programs, student government and experiential education offers an opportunity for our students to develop a work ethic in their daily lives and a sense of responsibility for their school and for the wider world community.  

How Do Parents, Teachers, and Administrators Communicate?

The Middle School provides easy access to administration and faculty through numerous avenues of communication.
