What Makes Oak Hill Special?
Oak Hill School prides itself on high academic ideals, standards, and expectations.
We nurture bright, caring, curious and critical thinkers.
Our students are ready to go out an explore the world.
Atop these scholastic foundations, we build an appreciation of arts, humanities, and creativity. Three foreign languages are taught: K -12 (Mandarin, French, and Spanish).
Every student has P.E. every day.
There are intensive art electives, jazz and rock bands, theatre and public speaking classes for our Lower School students, tech classes and an Outdoor Pursuits Program that challenges students in ways they did not believe possible.
Oak Hill School strives to paint students in 3 dimensions.
Our goal at Oak Hill School is to create a vibrant and dynamic educational community, united by the values of respect, compassion, communication, empathy, and tolerance. Students, faculty and families realize the importance of a culturally diverse population and we seek to embrace everyone.
Each year, OHS welcomes international exchange students, guest teachers, and artists-in-residence from such varied countries as Thailand, China, South Korea, Vietnam, Saudi Arabia, Mexico, Malaysia, and Russia. For the most part, these international guests live with host Oak Hill families where they are helped to learn conversational English and American customs. In class, the international students are integrated members of the student body.
This social and educational exchange is a richly rewarding experience for all. OHS students gain an understanding, respect and appreciation for the many different neighborhoods of the global community. They learn to recognize the differences, but more importantly, they gain the opportunity to see with their own eyes how very alike students are the world over. We want all our students to graduate from Oak Hill poised and prepared to become global citizens.
"At Oak Hill, I feel like I've found my right place. I can explore and learn cool things. The teachers are great and really friendly and helpful. They make me work hard but they're on my side, too..."
-Freeman Lloyd, class of 2024
