Since the little white school house first opened in 1911, OTS has been a safe and caring part of the Oyama community helping all students to thrive and gain foundational skills in math, literacy, and the arts, and to create a joy of learning. Located on the isthmus between Wood Lake and Kalamalka Lake, our classrooms extend beyond the welcoming doors of the school. We take pride in being a part of Central Okanagan Public Schools which educates students in a safe, inspirational learning environment where each student develops the knowledge and skills to be a lifelong learner and healthy productive member of our global society
In the spring of 2018, the second iteration of the Spirals of Inquiry process began. The entire student body was a part of the process as well as parents and the community as a whole. We are currently moving toward a hunch around student agency and learning through high quality tasks that are meaningful and relevant to learners, driven by their interests, and often self-initiated with appropriate guidance from teachers.
