Shelby County Schools

The Mission of Shelby Oaks is to prepare all students to reach their fullest potential in a safe and caring environment. This environment provides a variety of challenging educational opportunities to meet the needs of individual students in an ever-changing and culturally diverse society.

Shelby Oaks Elementary will be a student-centered learning environment, where all students will be challenged to achieve academically to their uppermost potential. Parents, community, faculty and staff will create a positive, secure and supportive culture in which each child will be taking risks to enhance higher-level thinking and reasoning skills. Students will be provided opportunities to think critically, communicate effectively, solve problems and become lifelong learners. All students leaving Shelby Oaks Elementary will be equipped emotionally, socially and academically for our rapidly changing society.
