Academic Teams

Student reading bookAcademic teams are a unique part of the middle school experience at OKMS. They strive to provide students opportunities to grow physically and mature academically under the caring and watchful eyes of not just one teacher-as in the elementary school experience- but under the professional eyes of a team of several teachers.  

Other elements of the teaming experience include the following:

  • Gives students the feeling of belonging to a small support group with common goals.
  • Allows the group of teachers to share a common planning time every other day.
  • Ensures departmental balance and consistency across the curriculum and in instructional programs.
  • Results in a more productive environment and serves as an effective method for dealing with issues such as human relations, responsibility, and citizenship.
