Welcome to Oak Ridge Elementary School of Leadership, Environmental and Health Sciences

A District 196 School. One District. Infinite Possibilities.


As a Leadership, Environmental and Health Sciences magnet school, we foster the development of personal and interpersonal skills so students can grow as leaders in our school, our community, and our world. Our inter-connected magnet theme creates unique learning experiences for our students to think critically. Learning and living the 7 Habits of Happy Kids helps students discover and develop their leadership skills. A focus on 21st century leadership and life skills creates a culture of student empowerment based on the idea that every child can be a leader. We further empower students through engaging, experiential and inquiry-based learning experiences to explore environmental issues, sustainability, and the health sciences. Students are encouraged to wonder, identify problems, gather and evaluate evidence, provide solutions, and make discoveries about themselves and the natural world. Learning is further extended through exploring our outdoor learning spaces, participating in field experiences in the community, and onsite residencies that connect to our theme.

Our School Mission: Empowering all students to achieve and inspiring life-long learning through high expectations, collaboration and respect.
