    Seven Oaks Elementary School is a learning place where PreK-5 students are instructed by highly skilled teachers with engaging and thoughtfully prepared lessons. Our staff takes a collaborative approach to education and takes pride in making each day a learning day for our students. We strive to integrate high levels of respect, responsibility, and safety in our classrooms, hallways, and playground as well.

    Seven Oaks is a modified calendar school on a trimester basis which provides break time between tracks. It’s our belief that having a modified calendar gives students more opportunities for learning throughout the entire year. As a result, the instructional staff spends less time reviewing concepts from the previous year and students are able to move quickly into new learning. Seven Oaks Elementary is located in Eagle, Idaho, which is a suburb to Boise, our state’s capital city. Our designated area draws students from Eagle, Star, and northwest Boise. This accredited public school serves children in preschool through fifth grade. Seven Oaks Elementary opened its doors in the fall of 1997 as one of four modified calendar schools in Joint School District No. 2.

    Our school offers students rigorous academics including writing instruction for provided by The Cabin. Our students also enjoy extra-curricular activities include the monthly Science and Engineering Club, 4th Grade Geography Bee, Tennis is Elementary, Young Chess Masters, 4/5 Spelling Bee, JumpRope for Heart, Girls on the Run and our All School Running Club. Parent volunteers provide an excellent Art Mom’s program for students and Orchestra instruction is also offered to fourth and fifth grade students.

    A complete review of our curriculum is available for your review on our district web page. It provides an overview of grade level expectations as well as more in-depth information regarding the curriculum for each subject area at all grade levels. The state’s achievement standards can also be accessed at this site. The staff at Seven Oaks uses a collaborative model to analyze our student data. That data is then used to inform instruction and plan for intervention that allows us to adapt to student needs. Teachers bring a high level of experience and expertise to the school. Further, they’re continually participating in professional development opportunities, resulting in a community of learners and leaders. The community and school work together to provide students a safe, friendly, and encouraging learning environment. The parents in this school community are actively engaged as volunteers in the classrooms and in our PTA. Parent involvement adds to our formula for success. At Seven Oaks, parents are truly partners in the education of their children.
