Mission

At Oster Elementary, we are strongly committed to creating a safe school environment and to offering learning experiences which:

  • draw on multiple forms of intelligence
  • nourish and cultivate initiative and responsibility
  • engage students in meaningful and useful service activities
  • emphasize community
  • encourage and challenge students to give their best efforts as life-long learners
  • and above all, seek to develop good citizens by fostering caring for others

 

Meeting the needs of the “whole child” socially, emotionally and academically permeates Oster and the parent community. The structuring of Oster into grade level teams which utilize interdisciplinary instruction between teachers provides the backdrop for developing this common vision. Intensive review of current research shows that the interdisciplinary teaming structure offers a highly effective way of organizing the school in terms of curriculum, instruction, and resources, both human and material. This vision is formally evaluated yearly to assure that goals are being met and that the needs of our diverse population are being served.
