Oak Hill Agenda/Handbook Oak Hill Schedule Oak Hill Dress Code

High ceilings and palladium windows in the main entrance foyer create an open invitation to an exciting place for learning. Oak Hill students and visitors walk into a two-story brick foyer warmed by generous amounts of natural light and soft colored floors. Plants and seating areas also help to create a welcoming environment.

The administrative and guidance offices, as well as the media center, are networked to the Newton County Board of Education's computers to allow direct communication of attendance, grading, pupil services, and purchasing information. These computers are also connected to the school's local area network (LAN) and to the wide area network (WAN), which enables school-to-central office exchange of information.

The media center has a computerized media management system. This system provides teachers and students with the capability to conduct on-line searches of media resources. The media specialist can send cable television, videotape recordings, closed circuit satellite broadcasts, and scrolling announcements to all classrooms.

Oak Hill's classrooms are clustered by grade level, with the south side of the building housing younger students and the north side of the building housing older students. Each classroom has three student computers which are connected to the school's local area network and wide area network. This enables the exchange of software as well as access to the Internet. Additionally, each classroom has closed circuit television access, an Activboard, and two-way communication with the administrative office.

The school also includes two teacher workrooms, a mini-auditorium, a large art room, a large music room, and a computer lab. The gymnasium is located behind the main building and is connected by a covered walkway. In the centrally located cafeteria, breakfast and lunch are served daily.

Oak Hill added 10 more classrooms to the south side of the building. The addition was opened in August 2003. The addition included a teacher workroom.
