We are so proud to unveil our new Mission and Vision for OMMS!  This was created with staff, community members and students. We are particularly proud of the belief statements that were very student driven!    You will start to see these items prominently posted, displayed and reinforced throughout the building! We are so proud of our remarkable community and grateful for your support!

Mission: At OMMS we strive to ensure that every student has access to and support for their highest level of educational opportunity and success in a just and equitable learning environment.

Vision: The Oakland Mills School community works in collaboration to provide a just and equitable learning environment where all school community members feel valued and cared for, while pursuing the highest level of educational opportunity and success.

Belief Statements:

  • Student Academics: We believe that every student can be academically successful, and that the school community should work collaboratively to support each learner individually.
  • Staff: We believe that our school staff are integral to our student success and should be supported professionally, respected and valued.
  • Academic Equity: We believe that all students should have equitable access to the highest level of academic coursework that meets their needs.
  • School Climate and Culture: We believe that school should be a safe, just and equitable learning and community environment for all members of the school community.
  • Arts: We believe that all students, teachers, staff and community members deserve equitable access to the arts both inside and outside of the school environment. We recognize the fun and joy it can bring to education, the impact it has on mental health, and the power it has to shape well rounded individuals and members of our community.
  • Diversity: We believe that the Oakland Mills community is strongest together. We believe that every member of our school community is beautiful, special, and unique. We celebrate and value the diversity of our school.
