Oakville Elementary School is a small community school of about 270 students located in the central portion of St. Mary’s County. The majority of our students come to school ready for their day and ready to learn. During the school year student attendance was 92.6%. Demographics for the school year identify a minority population of 25%, a FARMS population of 30%, and a special education population of 10%. Cultural differences and differences in behavioral expectations are present amongst our children from varying socio-economic backgrounds. Many of our children have attended Oakville since they began school. Because of this, we have been able to develop a true sense of community and a strong knowledge of our students and their families.
