School Learning Plan

Five Oaks Middle School

Our Story:

Five Oaks has undergone a very rapid transformation over the last few years.  Not only did our staff adapt quickly to the demands of CDL and hybrid learning last year, but this year we are teaching in a new schedule coupled with new boundaries. Change is now becoming the norm as we move forward. This time of change has allowed us an opportunity to rethink the story that we get to tell about our school.  

In previous school learning plans, the story has been about a school reacting to changes and challenging conditions in addition to really being two schools in one building with the Rachel Carson program.  With a remodeled building, massive changes in staffing, and new curriculum in addition to the changes mentioned above, we are writing a story about the new Five Oaks that includes; a different commitment to building wide norms and expectations, a different look at rigorous curriculum opportunities for students, and new and different ways for staff to collaborate around the ABC’s - academics, behavior, and climate. 

Our demographics have shifted significantly.  We went from over 50% Free/Reduced Lunch to between 30 - 35%. The following changes in the student body were noted:

Five Oaks is also shifting from being a school that feeds into multiple high schools to being a direct feeder to Westview High School.  We are looking at ways to leverage this relationship to benefit our students and increase the success rate of FOMS students at Westview and beyond.
