Tonight’s Meeting:

The purpose of tonight’s meeting is to outline for you the many opportunities for your child here at OKM and to take the first step in making the transition process from elementary to secondary school as seamless as possible.

Philosophy of Education at OKM

  • We are focused on creating opportunities to enhance each student’s individual potential, helping them excel in academics, athletics, leadership, and the fine arts and applied skills.

  • We also offer a wide range of extra curricular activities to enrich students’ high school experience.

  • We believe that ALL students can learn and achieve success.

Philosophy of Education at OKM

  • OKM has implemented a school-wide system of prevention and intervention strategies to identify and support “at risk” or “under supported” students.

  • Students with unique and difficult circumstances will have whatever support is necessary wrapped around them to help them succeed.

Philosophy of Education at OKM

  • Students who are struggling academically in any of their courses are identified at regular intervals and are required to access help as soon as they experience difficulty.

  • Students who are at risk of failing will be directed to the school’s Academic Intervention Program, or alternate support to ensure they are held accountable for learning.
