On November 1, more than 125 school and community members came together to review the most important document in PLSAS: our Strategic Plan that defines our mission, core values, vision and strategic directions. It was an interactive evening with students, parents, staff and community working in groups to describe the experiences they would like to have in our schools in the coming years. These descriptions will help guide the district in the next stage of planning.
Hidden Oaks Middle School
Our mission at Hidden Oaks Middle School is to promote and model a love of learning by providing a nurturing environment for students to grow academically, socially and emotionally.
Hidden Oaks and Twin Oaks are partner schools located across the street from each other. Staff at each site work together to benefit students by creating class opportunities and electives that could only be offered by the two schools working together.
Hidden Oaks is proud to be part of a 2013 U.S. Department of Education Green Ribbon Schools Sustainability District that supports Environmental Education, along with Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (E-STEM). Hidden Oaks and Twin Oaks offer a popular Environmental Education (EE) club called Earthlings to help students develop leadership skills, participate in service learning opportunities and promote E-STEM initiatives in the schools.
