The staff of Oakland-Scotland School is dedicated to the development of the whole child. We believe it is our responsibility to provide all children with an opportunity to develop into respectful, caring and educated citizens of the world. It is our belief that each child is special, unique and deserves our best interests. The Oakland-Scotland community can expect that the entire staff will work with parents and children to ensure that our future citizens can make a positive contribution to society.
