Principal's Message

Sneakers in a Circle
Oakmont is an excellent school.  We are an excellent school because of our highly qualified and compassionate faculty, student-oriented and caring staff, and supportive parents and community.  However, our success as a school starts with our students.  They are motivated, inclusive and energetic. They embody our core values as articulate communicators, self-directed learners, and innovative problem-solvers, who demonstrate responsibility and respect.
 
We tell our students that they will “get out of Oakmont, what they put into Oakmont.”  Our expectations are that all of our students will do what is required during the school day: thinking critically, practicing verbal and written communication, making responsible decisions, and being good school and community citizens.  Our academic program is diverse and challenging.
 
We also encourage our students to be involved at Oakmont after school. We are proud of our co-curricula programs.  We are proud of the excellence exhibited by our students in music, art, drama, athletics, and engineering.  We are proud of the social, community service and student government organizations. We are proud of the academic clubs and activities.  We are proud to see our students supporting each other.
 
Our goal is to prepare students for whatever they want to do upon graduation.  The learning community shared by all administrators, teachers, support staff, parents and students contributes to the consistent attainment of that goal.
