Oak Park Family:

The Oak Park School District continues to provide an exceptional learning opportunity for all students Pre-K-12. Pre-school is offered at all three of our elementary schools.  We have an amazing 7th and 8th grade academy, as well as, a ninth grade experience like none other for our incoming 9th grade students, and a variety of alternative or non-traditional programs/schools to meet the needs of all students.  The Oak Park Advantage is an experience that motivates all learners to reach their highest potential.  We are working diligently to surpass last school years points of pride, which include more than $2.7 million in scholarships for the Class of 2015; a Gates Millennium Scholarship Recipient for the past two years (2015 and 2014) that we are proud of, as well as our 2013 Gates Millennium Scholarship Finalist and 2012 Gates Millennium Recipient (that's 3 winners in 4 years); students accepted into nationally ranked, big ten, and very prestigious colleges and universities throughout the country; Back-to-Back Division I State Champion Girls Track and Field Team; award winning marching band performances by our High Stepping Varsity Marching Knights (grades 7 - 12) and Junior Varsity Marching Knights (grades 3 - 6) and robotics teams competitions for students in grades 3 - 12; students providing community service in other countries (with buildOn); award winning medical career students (HOSA); elementary spelling bee champions; elementary student art fairs;  providing a unique middle school experience for students in their gender based core classes (OPPA);  after school tutoring opportunities for all students, and so much more.  The goal is for every student to experience those opportunities and more.  Please stay abreast of all of our events, by either signing up for our e-blast or by picking up a calendar from your child’s school.
The Importance of Daily Attendance

Please be reminded that every day is one that is filled with engaged learning for all students.  Daily attendance for every student is everybody’s business.  We must make certain all of our students are attending school (each class for secondary students) daily.
The Importance of Staying Connected

We continue to share our story about our academic, arts, athletics, and attitude transformation.  We are the change we want to see in our community/the world.  We continue to make our transition by asking parents to stay connected to the district.  The dates listed below are vital to the success of all stakeholders, so please mark your calendars.
