Head of School

Welcome to The Oakridge School! 

Our mission is the guidepost to the decisions we make at Oakridge. We aim to provide students with the skills to succeed in the classroom and in life. We inspire our students to achieve and ignite their passions for discovery by rooting their learning in a well-rounded environment that creates happier, empathetic, more fulfilling lives. 

We challenge students to explore their curiosities and work collaboratively to solve problems in real-world contexts with world-class educators to guide them. Although, what makes Oakridge distinctively different is the engagement we share with our entire community.

Whether you're a prospective family inquiring about our school, a current family staying up to date on on-campus events, or a valued alum reconnecting, I hope you discover we are a dynamic school community. We are committed to creating an inclusive and equitable learning environment in which all children can feel a sense of belonging. We are deeply rooted in warmth and kindness and dedicated to helping children grow into the best version of themselves.                                   

We appreciate your interest in Oakridge. I invite you to peruse our website to get a glimpse of our strong community. I hope you are inspired to visit us to meet our incredible teachers and see our beautiful facility filled with learning spaces, a ceramics studio, a vibrant garden, and a national wetland inside the white picket fence. Come, and witness what makes Oakridge a safe and special place for children to learn, grow, and thrive together. 

Go Owls!
