Oak Creek teaches students where they are in their learning. Once an assessment is given upon enrollment, the teacher can write an academic plan to suit the needs of the student. Oak Creek strives to fill in the learning gaps to help students achieve success. Curriculum is designed around the ability of the student.
Life skills is a natural part of the learning process and is incorporated into the everyday curriculum. Students learn to serve one another at meal times, wash dishes, and prepare meals by learning to cut vegetables, fruits, etc. Students in higher grades help in the office, with landscaping, janitorial skills, volunteering at the Food Care Center and other community places.

It is important to connect learning with real life when possible. Other “fun”
field trips are great opportunities for social interaction and relationship

We have an amazing Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) that will get you connected and involved. Parents are asked to volunteer eight hours per semester. We have frequent opportunities for involvement. It is also a great way to get to know other parents.
Different environments are good for all of us. Some of us thrive in a smaller more intimate setting. Our school is individualized. This means that the teacher does not teach to the norm in the class. Students are taught at their level regardless of grade level.
