Oneida High School
Oneida High School offers an alternative setting for students. We provide a small student/adult ratio allowing for more one-to-one and small group instruction. After considerable research, observation and evaluation, we determined that a ‘block’ system best meets the needs of our students. Each block is a three-week period in which students study only one subject. This allows the student to focus on the required course in depth and without interruption. Teachers are better able to individualize instruction, and student loads are reduced.
Block scheduling allows for a variety of innovative lessons. Students also have the time to comprehend the concepts being taught. Research has shown that the more time a student spends on a subject, the great understanding. Another advantage of the block program is that teachers and students have more time to get to know one another and this results in better communication with stronger rapport.
Our focus is students. The faculty wants to do everything we can to provide a positive learning environment and to help students reach their goals. Our PBIS theme is: Royals are ready, respectful and responsible. Our goal is to provide positive support systems while teaching students they are responsible for their own choices.
We are on a four-day school week and students attend class from 7:45 am to 2:15 pm. We encourage parent involvement in the school. Parents are an important link in the educational process. If we all work together, we can provide a quality education to the students of Oneida High School. Students succeed when they have the support of the home, the school and the community.
