Upper Elementary (age 9-12)

RE-OPENING in 2025- 2026 school year!
It is with immense gratitude for the past and energized anticipation for the future that our upper elementary classroom (4th-6th grade) will temporarily close next year as part of some changes we are making at Oak Arbor. We're thrilled to announce that it will reopen in the academic year 2025-2026. We're pleased to announce that it will reopen in the academic year 2025-2026, offering fresh opportunities for our students.

During this interim period, we will focus our energies on our Preschool through 3rd-grade students, ensuring they receive the exceptional education they deserve. Additionally, we're exploring the possibility of introducing a before and after-care program to support our school community further. Your continued support is deeply appreciated as we embark on this next phase of Oak Arbor’s path to “Feed the Mind, Touch the Heart, and Prepare Students for Life.

Thank You
