General School Mission

"The Red Oaks School has a well-developed sense of community. This strong bond is what gives our staff, our students, and our families a sense of belonging and support. Through classroom experiences and a wide variety of social events and celebrations, students get to know the families of their friends and grow up with a sense of being part of an extended community. Parents and teachers enjoy an old-fashioned sense of collaboration and warmth. Personal relationships grow strong and friendships run deep. Students, parents, and teachers come together to help community members in need. In this way our students develop a critical sense of responsibility for our living planet.

Red Oaks brings together families with common commitments to the concerns, values, and expectations they have for children. We come from different backgrounds; our very sense of community exists because of it. Red Oaks teaches our children to understand and appreciate cultural differences and shared human values: peace, independence, human dignity, and a celebration of life. We have created a positive sense of identity, mutual consideration, and concern among students and faculty that truly define us as a caring multicultural community.
