Welcome to Oakcrest Elementary School
of International Studies!
It is with great pride that we look forward to the start of a new school year. Our academic goals and behavioral responsibilities are set very high for our students at Oakcrest Elementary School of International Studies. Our requirements far exceed the expectations set by the Marion County School Board.
We are passionate about our students’ high academic performance. It is our desire that our students will succeed as they pursue their future education, professional and personal goals. We will continue to emphasize student responsibility, and will not tolerate disruptive students. The hard work of our teachers and students along with the support of our parents is greatly commended as we strive for high levels of academic success.
Our IB Program
We are very excited to announce that Oakcrest Elementary School has attained authorization to offer the Primary Years Program (PYP) as an International Baccalaureate (IB) World school!
Oakcrest Elementary School chose the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Program because the implementation of this well-established and respected program will provide all of our students with the skills and attitudes to be highly successful, productive and responsible citizens who have a wealth of relevant 21st century skills.
