We understand that there are many factors to consider when selecting a school for your child. Oyama is a very unique environment that believes each child is an individual - where their maximum learning capability will be challenged and reached through instruction of the Common Core Standards. We are a "Balanced Literacy" school that provides equal instruction between both whole language and phonics. A balanced approach guides students toward proficient and lifelong reading.
Instruction in mathematics and technology will become an additional focus in the 2014-15 school year. Critical math and reading concepts, individualized learning for every student will highlight the Common Core Standards. Through the use of technology, laptops, wireless network, software, and close monitoring by our classroom teachers, Technology and Reading Instructors; students will be exposed to a highly interactive learning experience. Addressing multiple learning modalities and making students active participants in their learning will truly promote active, engaged learning.
Oyama is currently partnered with Pima College thus allowing for mentorships from Pima students, tutoring programs, and the arts. In addition to this, Oyama has a Reading Achievement, Technology Intervention, and Library Specialist here to enhance your child's learning experience. Oyama offers a full day kindergarten, and G.A.T.E. pullout classes. Please read more about how we can help your child reach their maximum potential!
