Oakton Elementary earned the 2012 Governor’s Award for Educational Excellence, a recognition of schools that exceed minimum state and federal accountability standards and meet or exceed a number of performance indicators. Oakton is one of only 16 elementary schools in Fairfax County to earn this prestigious honor. This is an outstanding testament to the long-standing dedication and commitment of the Oakton faculty AND to the partnership with our Oakton families which supports excellence in each and every child. Congratulations Oakton!
Our teachers provide numerous opportunities for students to creatively explore the curriculum and demonstrate what they have learned. The 3rd grade “Imagination Station” is one example of the many reasons Oakton earns top honors in the field of education. This week, 3rd grade students were challenged to create new math games. In cooperative groups, students used various materials to design a board game demonstrating their knowledge of time, measurement, and number sense. -cg
