Walker is truly a community-based school, made so by many wonderful people. Our students are eager to learn and to make a positive difference. Our staff members are committed to child-centered learning, and we work to make sure that every student has his/her needs met. Our parents and community members partner with us, and together we provide excellent learning opportunities for our students.
At Walker, we practice the “Fish Philosophy” (Strand, Christensen & Halper). The four components of this philosophy are: Make Someone’s Day, Choose Your Attitude, Be There/Be Present, and Play. Walker is a great place to learn and grow!
Oak School Media Resource Center (MRC) Director Mary Morgan Ryan believes in the power of sharing ideas and is particularly passionate about sharing among her colleagues in school libraries across the country. “It makes all of us stronger,” she notes. “In many places, there is only one librarian per school, so it can be a challenge to share with colleagues in the same position who understand what you do each day, aside from those in your own district.”
Oak School has been honored with the esteemed 2014 National Blue Ribbon Schools Award from the U.S. Department of Education for academic excellence. Oak is the fifth of nine schools in Community Consolidated School District 181 to earn the Blue Ribbon Award, joining Clarendon Hills Middle School (2009), Hinsdale Middle School (2009), Madison School (2009) and The Lane School (2011).
