The Oasis School curriculum, philosophically student-centric, employs a goal-centered process to support predefined outcomes. Some of the educational elements of education applied in our high school curriculum include, but are not limited to, seminar-style discussion, project-based learning, independent, student-directed inquiry, cooperative group and partner work, individually-paced skill building, integrated curriculum, expert guest teachers, community, organizational and academic partnerships, lengthy subject time blocks, goal-centric rubrics and a process of ongoing student evaluation with timely feedback. These educational elements are implemented in order to support an inspired, cooperative and high-achieving school community.
Much of the opportunities the students will engage in will be based on their interests, leadership and involvement. During our first few years, we will rely heavily on the surveying of incoming students to determine which sports and athletics teams will be developed, and the students will be named founders of many of the school’s trials of extracurricular activities, clubs, and athletics. The Oasis School is currently exploring partnerships with local facilities and organizations for after school club athletics, which may include basketball, swimming and water polo, as well as local club team sports and activities that are available at an elite level in proximity to the school, such as Jiu Jitsu, gymnastics, dance, classical ballet, hockey, soccer, flag football, volleyball, tennis, theatre and chess.
Oasis is considered an in-process school, to be accredited before the school’s first graduating class applies for college. The school has been and continues to maintain the appropriate documents required to continue the accreditation process.
The Oasis college advisory program begins in grade 9, so that their portfolios best support senior year letters of recommendation, and so that students design their goals and expectations.
Three years in the making, The Oasis School has developed relationships with most local Rabbis, community leaders and heads of Jewish organizations. We take pride in these strong relationships and plan to use these contacts to further educate families about Oasis and for recruitment of students.
