Welcome to Oregon Middle School
Learning for ourselves, each other, and the world.
Vision of an OMS graduate
OMS Citizens show respect, responsibility, and empathy when they:
- ask meaningful questions
- think independently and work collaboratively
- analyze information and communicate effectively
- address challenges creatively
- take ownership of how their actions affect themselves and the world
- advocate for equity and social justice
- serve their community
2019-2020 OMS Problem of Practice
While OMS data show persistent opportunity gaps among some student groups, the data also show that all students can grow as learners. OMS students value a community of learning, personal relationships with students and staff, relevant and challenging experiences, and choices that engage them in learning.
2019-2020 OMS Theory of Action
When all staff collaborate in meaningful ways to:
- Build relationships that cultivate a positive community in service of student growth and achievement
- Design relevant, challenging, and personalized learning experiences that involve opportunities for student choice in creativity, reading, writing, and critical thinking
- Create standards-based learning targets that foster student-driven learning
- Use formative assessment, feedback, and goal setting to drive instruction
- Reflect on beliefs/assumptions, systemic practices, curriculum, and instruction through the lens of equity and then make changes to disrupt inequities
Then all OMS students will be engaged and grow as learners.
