Royal oak schools:
a community of excellence

We offer competitive pay, world-class professional development, and plenty of career growth opportunities, all with an unbeatable culture. 


Royal Oak Schools will create a world-class system for learning by building active partnerships among students, educators, families, and the community to prepare all students to participate in an ever-changing world as responsible lifelong learners.


  • Student Achievement: Student Achievement for Royal Oak students will exceed nation, state, and county norms.

  • Student Growth: Each individual student will achieve at least one year's worth of growth for a year's worth of instruction.

  • Community: School and community success are inter-related and active school-community partnerships are essential to both, therefore we will work to strengthen and increase school and community partnerships.

  • System: Royal Oak Schools will responsibly optimize the use of resources for improving student learning.

In adopting these goals, the Board of Education committed to reviewing them on no less than an annual basis.
