Mr. Oakman

Agoura High School

Science Department


Welcome to Mr. Oakman's Science Website and to the 2019 - 2020 school year. Now in my twelfth year teaching high school chemistry and physics classes and my fourth year at AHS, I am excited for this upcoming year and the opportunity to continue teaching an awesome new group of students in the Sciences at Agoura. This year, along with adding the responsibility of serving as the Science Department Chairperson at AHS, I will be teaching AP Chemistry, IB Physics SL and the Robotics (I / II / III) class. I am looking forward to a great school year! Important Note to All Students (and their parents / guardians): Physical Science classes (like Chemistry or Physics) can be challenging for many students, but I am confident that all students have in themselves the capacity to learn the subject and I am here to help support that endeavor this year!
