Oak Street TK-6 Elementary School
An Arts School
Oak Street Elementary is an enthusiastic arts-focused campus filled with students excited to learn, and faculty grateful to be able to teach them. The majority of Oak Street students will attend Crozier Junior High School and Inglewood High School.
The District provides support for the Open-Court Reading Program, some training through the curriculum department in other content areas, and standard based instruction.
IUSD houses the Child Development Center, a preschool program that meets the needs of special education students. Some children entering kindergarten at Oak Street School have benefited from attending Head Start Preschool Programs. A few students attend private preschools through religious or community organizations, but the majority of students enrolling in kindergarten at Oak Street have never attended pre-school and are English Learners. This is why a kindergarten program has been provided to meet our students’ needs.

The focus of Oak Elementary School, a uniquely supportive and nurturing K-5 community, is to incorporate the arts to teach students to excel academically and socially.
We accomplish this by - applying a critical thinking processes, facilitating parent-community involvement, and utilizing emerging technology in a clean and safe environment where all students feel important and become productive citizens of our community.
The staff at Oak Street School continues to work hard to provide our students with a well-instructed quality program.
We strive to improve the academic achievement and test scores of our students while providing them with a culturally enriched, nurturing, and safe learning environment.
We encourage our parents and community to participate in a variety of school activities and welcome suggestions of how we can improve our school.
Oak Street has an after-school program, instructed by Oak Street teachers, two days a week. The program also involves parents. It has been very successful in preparing students for kindergarten and developing language skills for English Learners.
We are proud of our community and understand that English is not everyone’s native language.
The languages represented at our school are very diverse, and include:
Second language learners comprise over 50% of the student population. The school is sensitive to the needs of second language learners, and has created programs to help them with language development and monitor the progress that is made.
All communication with parents is in both Spanish and English, thereby making translations readily available. We want parent participation to be convenient and inviting for families.
Other highlights of our school include Hispanic Culture Appreciation Assembly, Winter Holiday Celebration, African American Culture Appreciation Assembly, Multicultural Day, Los Angeles County Outdoor Science School, and track meets.
