About Sky Oaks
At Sky Oaks Elementary School, we serve a diverse community of about 555 students in kindergarten through fifth grade. With talented and dedicated staff, and support from parents and community members, we are focused on providing education that responds to our students’ needs, meets and exceeds state standards, and fulfills the mission of our district to make each student “real world ready.”
What Makes Us Unique
Commitment to the Environment - We pride ourselves on teaching and practicing respect for our environment. Our students are leaders in the school when it comes to our energy efficiency efforts and our recycling/composting program.
Instructional Technology - Today’s powerful technology has become ubiquitous in classrooms throughout the country, including at Sky Oaks Elementary. Our teachers have invested time in researching what technology makes the biggest difference in the achievement of our students and have shared that knowledge with colleagues.
P.R.I.D.E. - We know that students learn best when they feel safe and part of a supportive community. Through our PRIDE program (Prepared, Respectful, Involved, Determined and Excellent), we stress the importance of good character, acknowledge those students who demonstrate it, and model it every day.
Academics and Activities
We provide a variety of academic programs and unique student activities that support students as they become the best learners and citizens they can be.
Full-Day, Every-Day Kindergarten - At Sky Oaks, every student can attend full-day kindergarten for free. There is no greater investment than in early learning, and we are committed to providing the resources our students need to succeed.
Specialists - Education is about more than just math and reading. All students have art, physical education, digital learning and music classes, too.
Band - Students in fifth grade can explore instrumental music as part of the Sky Oaks band, receiving small group and full band instruction, as well as performance opportunities.
Chess Club - The game of kings: Members compete with one another and at local tournaments throughout the year.
Project KIDS - Before and after school care option for school-age children.
