Please bring your photo ID when visiting Oakdale School.
Oakdale Elementary School opened in 1964. Renovations and additions were completed in 2007. Oakdale School is one of three elementary schools in the Town of Montville. There are 331 students who attend full day Kindergarten through Grade 5. That number includes our preschool students as Oakdale also hosts the Montville Integrated Preschool for our district. Our primary goal of education is the whole child as seen through our curriculum and activities at Oakdale School. Educational programs are brought into the school, which include Mystic Aquarium and Demos R Us.
There are four school rules: Be Responsible, Be Respectful, Be Safe, and Build Community. These PBIS rules guide student behavior.
Staff and students welcome community into the school with volunteer opportunities and the annual Giving Tree. Students give back through an annual, nonperishable food drive and cards sent to military personnel serving overseas.
Students are offered a variety of after school activities such as fifth grade boys' and girls' basketball teams, literacy and math clubs, and enrichment activities. Each grade level takes a turn hosting a "Town Meeting" that is attended by the entire school. The Oakdale Community Club (The OCC) supports the mission of Oakdale Elementary School and works to involve the students in activities that have a positive impact on the school and the community.
