Faculty and Staff

Oak Knoll School is distinguished by talented, dedicated faculty who instill in students a lifelong love of learning and the skills to pursue it. Aware that their influence reaches beyond the classroom, our faculty and staff approach their work both as a responsibility and a privilege. The school has built a nurturing faculty of departmentalized teachers who are experts in their particular fields. By challenging and inspiring students, they fuel children’s dreams and ambitions, encouraging them to excel. Many of our faculty members not only teach in the classroom, but also coach, take part in Campus Ministry, and moderate extracurricular activities. Our professional staff is also actively involved in the life of the school.
