The school, because of its small environment, has a high education standard, an up to date computer lab with Internet access, as well as a recently built library, which provides students with a broad range of information.
Their goal is to encourage every student to reach his or her potential within a supportive environment.

Its Learning Beliefs:
– Learning is best achieved when the needs to the child are considered and addressed in a safe, positive environment.
– Learning involved students actively participating in a variety of challenging experiences, including play.
– Together, students, staff, families, and community members contribute to the growth of the whole child.
– Learning is a lifelong process built on meaningful experiences.

Students at Oak River have the opportunity to enjoy a wide range of sports within phys-ed class such as volleyball, baseball, basketball, badminton, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, skating, curling, soccer, and track.  Annual field trips to historic and educational sites are regular, and vary from grade to grade.
