Oak Grove Primary
Welcome! Thank you for taking the time to visit this site and learn more about our school. I hope this information will be helpful.
Oak Grove Primary School is a K-1 school located in Lamar County just west of Hattiesburg, MS. With over 800 students in our school it is a big and busy place to be!
The Mississippi Department of Education ranks schools based on the results of MAAP which begins in the 3rd grade. Although we do not administer this test we feel strongly that the foundation we build is a crucial beginning for future success. We are proud of the academic success of our students and know they will continue to grow and excel.
We continue to implement healthy choices through our "Health Is Academic" focus as well as our school district's wellness policy. Please take time to read the policy and help us adhere to these changes - they are designed to help us all grow healthier!
Our school is also part of the Whole Schools Art Initiative. We are recognized as a Model Whole School, an honor earned through the dedication of many people who see how beneficial learning through the arts is for our students. We have a Visual Arts Studio and a Performing Arts Studio. Our students are instructed by certified art and music teachers each week. Classroom teachers integrate the arts throughout our curriculum to create fun and enticing learning opportunities for our students. We are very grateful to the Mississippi Arts Commission for their support of arts infusion in Mississippi classrooms!
Remember that school begins each day at 7:40 AM and there will be lots of traffic if you don't ride a bus so come early! We have teachers on duty beginning at 7:00. Our school day ends at 2:10 PM.
We follow PBIS in our school district. This is a positive behavior initiative that encourages our children to make positive choices in every situation wherever they are! We have adopted procedures that every child follows in every area of campus. Our school-wide motto is shared each morning as we say the pledge. It is:
