Welcome to your OHS Community Page, home of all esoteric things related to the Oak Hill School family!

Head of School’s Note:

I hope everyone had an enjoyable Thanksgiving break!  It’s wonderful to see everyone back and re-energized.  As I visit classrooms across campus I continue to marvel at the high level of engagement between our teachers and students.  Trust me when I write that this is by no means the norm in every school.  We have a unique dynamic going on at Oak Hill, and everyone benefits from it.  In that vein, I hope to see a strong turnout at our High School Information Night, which will be held on December 12, from 6:00-8:00pm in the Hub.  This will be a fantastic opportunity to learn more about all the opportunities available to high school students at OHS.

Warmly,
John/Mr. O


November

Student of the Month

High School: Jordan Kasitz

Jordan was nominated for her positive and caring attitude. Recently in study hall when she had finished her work, instead of relaxing or playing around she volunteered to help prepare an advisory activity. And then she found a better way to prepare it than her teacher! She is a critical thinker, and a very caring student. In her every day life, Jordan is polite and welcoming, even to students and faculty she doesn’t know. Congratulations, Jordan!

Middle School: Eli Michel

Eli was nominated because his work in the Technology elective has been exceptional this term. Every day, he demonstrates himself to be a “caring and responsible critical thinker” – supporting his classmates, taking responsibility for his own learning, and solving problems both practical and intellectual. He took on a very challenging task and has made great progress. He exemplifies the attributes of an independent learner and a student of technology. His other teachers have noticed that Eli is very thoughtful and has grown a lot as a student, finding strategies to be successful. Congratulations, Eli!
