About Us » Overview


Oak Elementary opened in 1987. We are located in one of the fastest growing towns (population about 55,000) in the Memphis/Shelby County area. Our building, described by our students as a huge happy face, is situated on 15 acres that was once a sod farm. It is a unique Pre-K to 5th grade child-centered, community supported school. Serving this population are faculty, staff, parents, grandparents, extended family members, and community supporters who believe as we do: Educating Everyone Takes Everyone and Schools Exist to Serve Children. They commit their time and resources to a program which has received national recognition for the accomplishments of its students, parents, and school leadership.
