Principal's Message

Welcome to Oakcrest Intermediate School!


It has been and continues to be my greatest honor to serve as the principal of OIS. Our motto is: Cultivating Character … Elevating Education.


As a Great Expectations MODEL school, we promote and nurture a Culture of Respect and Academic Excellence. Our staff members serve together in a professional learning community with student success at the forefront of all instructional decision-making. We collaborate to ensure every student succeeds even though every student learns differently. We provide intervention and enrichment that will springboard intermediate students into junior high and high school and beyond by building a foundation of academic, social, and emotional skills proven to enhance their growth as a lifelong learner. In a safe and nurturing school environment, students can maximize their learning potential and strive for continuous improvement.


Our Core Values at OIS are:

Operate with Integrity

Achievement Oriented

Know No Limits

Continuous Improvement

Reciprocal Accountability

Extend Learning Outcomes

Support for High Expectations

Think Critically


Since the school environment is only one aspect in the development of a child, we want to partner with each family to advance the individual educational experience of every student. We look forward to working with you in this process.


Most sincerely,



Lee Wright, Ed.D.
