#SuperSchoolShoutout: Oakbrook
Posted on 12/13/2023

This week, we’re showing our #CPSDPride with a #SuperSchoolShoutOut to Oakbrook Elementary School! 

Oakbrook is one of the smallest schools in CPSD, and, with such a small population, everyone knows everyone. This school is special in many ways, but the most unique quality of Oakbrook is it’s open-concept design. There are next to no walls inside the school and most classes are separated by bookshelves.

“The open concept really builds community,” said Principal Leila Davis. “We don’t have walls, so we have to be accountable to one another and look out for everyone no matter what class or grade the students are in or the teachers teach.”

This is Principal Davis’s second year as the principal of Oakbrook. She enjoyed becoming part of the school’s community last year and has taken this year as an opportunity to collaborate with her staff to incorporate new learning concepts that further engage students.

“I’m very excited about the different ways we’re engaging students this year,” Principal Davis said. “For example, we’ve incorporated new math concepts to encourage students to be able to talk about what they’re learning and better explain the strategies they use to solve problems.”
