About Oxford Elementary

Oxford Elementary School
Oxford Elementary School is housed in a beautiful brick Tudor-style building. The interior, which was renovated during the summer of 2000, features two historic Works Progress Administration murals. The school has a magnificently landscaped courtyard named after former principal Winston Adams. Our building houses approximately 300 students from preschool through fifth grade.

Oxford implements AVID Elementary (AE) into our professional practices and instruction. AE is a foundational component of the AVID College Readiness System and supports AVID’s mission to close the achievement gap by preparing all students for college and career readiness and success in a global society.

AE is designed to be embedded into the daily instruction of all elementary classrooms across entire grade levels to maintain school-wide structures. The implementation resources, trainings, and philosophy are all grounded in the idea that the growth mindset can be taught to students, and it is through the growth mindset that AVID students succeed in following their dreams and fulfilling their aspirations. AVID Elementary takes a systemic approach through the use of WICOR (writing, inquiry, collaboration, organization, and reading) and an explicit focus on high expectations, rigor, and developing a college and career readiness culture.

AVID Elementary incorporates:

Student Success Skills – encompassing communication skills (e.g. listening, speaking, writing), self-advocacy skills, note-taking strategies, critical thinking, and study skills.

Organizational Skills – both mental and physical; students learn to use organizational tools, as well as learn and practice skills around time management and goal-setting.

WICOR Lessons – emphasize daily instruction on writing to learn, inquiry, collaboration, organization, and reading to learn in all content areas.

Partnerships – among students, classrooms, grade levels, feeder schools, families, and communities.
