Oak Grove Middle School is a fifth and sixth grade campus that provides a quality instructional program designed to help each child reach his/her full potential. A professional staff of 50 teachers, administrators, therapists, paraprofessionals, food service workers, and custodians are dedicated to providing approximately 500 students with an academically rigorous learning environment. Within a nurturing, safe environment, Oak Grove Middle School staff members actively engage all students in the learning process and teach students to become critical thinkers, problem-solvers, and life-long learners.
Fifth and sixth grade students change classes throughout the day. Each student has “core” classes consisting of math, language arts, science, and social studies. Art, Music, Keyboarding, EAST Initiative, and Physical Education are offered to every student in the middle school and the school library provides open check-out times throughout each day. Every student at Oak Grove Middle School is assigned a teacher mentor and a homeroom. Students have the opportunity to complete homework or special projects each day during their homeroom time and receive additional assistance as needed.
