At Thousand Oaks, we are a unified and supportive community where students learn to appreciate cultural, ethnic, and linguistic diversity. Our teachers are trained in using our district-adopted curriculum; many staff utilize culturally-responsive teaching strategies aimed to engage all students, and in particular students of color. Thousand Oaks offers a K-3 bilingual program for native Spanish-speaking students and many bilingual students. We strive to educate the whole child and offer many enrichment programs including: cooking, gardening, music and science for upper grades, physical education, and visual art. We believe in providing a safe, supportive environment for students to learn in. We teach and reinforce school-wide rules and expectations through positive behavior support. We provide additional supports for students through counseling and academic interventions. Our building provides a great learning environment and our teachers are highly qualified to provide solid, rigorous academic instruction. Come and visit Thousand Oaks and be part of this wonderful school community!
