The mission of the OAECS is to provide an educational experience that creates knowledgeable, caring, and responsible young people. The curriculum at OAECS will be well-rounded and infused with the arts while establishing values leading to responsible treatment of the environment. The OAECS will produce students who can express themselves in many ways.
Students will use dance, drama, visual arts, theater, writing, technology and other means to demonstrate their learning and express their creativity. Students will learn a healthy lifestyle and a knowledge and appreciation of growing and preparing their own food. Our students will know how to be leaders in learning situations, treat those around them with respect, resolve conflict, and become part of their community. OAECS will instill in our students the required learning as well as foster creativity and responsibility.
