Welcome to Indian Oasis


A Message From Our Team

Dear Indian Oasis Middle & High School Students and Families,

Welcome to the 2023–2024 school year! We are thrilled to welcome our students and staff back to school. We hope that you were able to relax and make special memories with your friends and families. Now it is time to look forward to a wonderful new school year as we are striving to meet 90% attendance for all students. The first step to success is to show up! Together we will witness our students’ amazing academic achievements!

Our incredible staff of educators have been in school throughout the summer to prepare classrooms for the new school year. We are grateful to our amazing custodial staff as they worked all summer getting our school in pristine shape. Our office Manager, Ms. Heather Lafferty, has been working hard to ensure a smooth start for staff, students, and families.

IOMHS - The Accelerated Campus - is such a special place to learn and grow. We are proud of our school and have high expectations for each and every student. Our students are kind, compassionate, and eager to learn.Our mission at Indian Oasis Middle School and High School is to provide students with a supportive and engaging environment where students have access to a hybrid curriculum that integrates computer-based learning with direct instruction to meet the needs of all learning styles. As an alternative school, we are dedicated to students who are credit deficient as well as those who seek to learn at an accelerated pace Our overarching goal is to encourage active student engagement to foster a lifetime love for learning. 

We are excited to return to our normal school operations this year. We will be in-person for all students. We are aware that we will need to continue to address unfinished learning by using an acceleration model to fill in gaps in knowledge. We will focus instruction on specialized skills and content needed to learn grade level materials while providing the appropriate tools needed to grasp concepts.

Partnering with families is crucial to promote a healthy transition to school both socially and emotionally. We recognize that students may be feeling anxious with the start of a new school year, and we will continue to place a strong emphasis on social emotional learning while focusing on building classroom community. We encourage families to stay connected and informed by following our district website and announcements sent through Parent Vue.

Indian Oasis Student & Family Handbook is filled with important information regarding school policy and procedures. Parents and students should review the contents together. If you have any questions, please call the school office. We feel that open and clear communication between school and home is important to the success of our educational program. We look forward to working with you and your child and to a wonderful, productive school year filled with rich academic experiences supported by technology and individualized instructional techniques! We appreciate your cooperation and support, and we welcome your suggestions and ideas for improvement. Please come visit our school where safety and student success always come first!
