An Alternative School


Experienced, Caring, Individualized Support

OASIS School began in 2001. The school was created by a group of parents working with the Orcas Island School District administration team to develop an alternative learning experience (ALE) within the public school. OASIS serves families throughout Washington State.

The teachers and staff at OASIS are proud to offer a high quality, ALE Parent Partnership Program that meets state requirements while offering students and families a public school option to best meet their individual needs.

Please email the OASIS Office Manager, Katie Wlaysewski, for more information or call 360-376-1598.
