After lunch, students will participate in various other activities provided by the Clemson Biology Department. Students will return to school in time for regular dismissal. All applicants will be required to attend eight study sessions that will take place during their lunch, prior to the event. Study session dates are April 1st-12th and April 22nd-25th. Only thirty 7th and 8th grade students will be selected to attend.

School Choice for the 2019-2020 school year opens on Friday, March 1st and will remain open until Friday, June 7th.  If you would like for your child to attend a school that is outside the attendance area in which you live, you must complete an online school choice request that can be found on the School District website under the Parent’s tab.  If you are unable to complete the online request, please contact the school office to obtain a paper copy to complete and return to the school that you are requesting.  School choice forms are required annually even if your child is currently on school choice.  

School Choice will close on Friday, June 7, 2019.   This is a hard deadline and will end on June 7th, no exceptions Please contact the school office for any questions. 

The following are highlights of the SDOC school choice policy:

  • Only students that reside in Oconee County are eligible for choice.
  • Transportation to a “choice school” is the responsibility of the parents/guardians (no bus service will be provided).
  • Students on school choice must submit an application each year.
  • Principals will consider behavior, attendance, and grades before approving applications.
  • The completed online request is due to the choice school on or before June 7, 2019.
  • If more applications are received than the number of spaces available at any school, a lottery system will be used to fill spaces. 

The school district reserves the right to limit school choice enrollment by grade level or program as staffing or funding requires. Choice may also be limited by classroom space in the school(s).

Join the West-Oak High School Athletic Booster Club!

posted Mar 14, 2018, 10:48 AM by Jennifer Cox   [ updated Feb 28, 2019, 6:06 AM ]

There is currently an effort underway to reinvigorate the West-Oak High School Athletic Booster Club (WOHS-ABC). Booster clubs exist for the purpose of supporting all who participate in the school’s athletic programs. We believe that membership in the booster club by parents and their subsequent participation in WOHS-ABC events, fundraisers and meetings is a crucial first step in developing a strong, vibrant and successful athletic program that is sustainable year after year.

Your membership will run through June 30 2019.

Please download the membership form and mail in today!  

Through this initial stage, we would like to see a strong show of support for our West-Oak Athletic Programs because we believe successful athletic programs not only benefit the athlete, but fosters student pride in their school and community.
