At Great Oaks, all teachers and staff work together to ensure your success--in the classroom, in the lab, and in life.
A safe and comfortable environment is essential for all students to be successful. We work to provide the proper setting for our students. This includes expectations that students will treat themselves, each other, the staff, and the facilities with respect and dignity.
We are proud of our students and their efforts to maintain a safe and comfortable school environment. All who attend here agree to abide by the Student Code of Conduct.
