    OJUSD Schools will be closed beginning on Thursday March 19, 2020 and will be resuming on Monday May 4, 2020.

    Community of Oakdale,

    It is with great reservation that I announce that the OJUSD will work in coordination with the other school districts in Stanislaus County and be closing all schools at the conclusion of school on Wednesday 3/18/2020 in response to the coronavirus. There are many factors in play, but here are the facts. The dates of the OJUSD closure will be Thursday 3/19/2020 through Sunday 5/3/2020. School will resume on Monday 5/4/2020. The dates of this closure are two-fold. 1) Short-term school closures have proven ineffective in mitigating the virus. 2)These dates coincide with the dates of closure for the Stanislaus County Office of Education. The only staff that will be working are those that are deemed as essential for the continued operations of the OJUSD. Effective 3/19/2020 there will be no outside use of any OJUSD Facilities for the length of the closure. This includes athletics, performing arts and any other outside entity. This is an initial communication to keep us all updated on the very latest information. Additional information will follow as it becomes available.

    Mission Statement



    Valley Oak students and families.  As we move into our first full week of school closure it is important to us that all families are receiving any support that our site may be able to deliver.  Please do not hesitate to contact teachers via email or myself with any questions or concerns. Enrichment activities are posted on our site to keep your students engaged as well as teachers are checking emails daily to address any needs you may have.  Please continue to be safe.

    Valley Oak Jr and Senior High School


    ​We believe that every student is entitled to an educational environment that best suits his or her academic abilities, learning styles and personal needs. At Valley Oak High School, using the alternative strategies of independent study, all students will develop skills for successful living and become productive and responsible citizens. The teachers role is to be the student's guide, mentor, counselor, and advocate. We encourage parents and caregivers to take an active role in the student's learning and life plans.

    Principal's Message

    Students matriculate to Valley Oak Junior and Senior High School through a referral process from the comprehensive junior high school or high school, transfer from the continuation high school, or from out-of-district placements upon moving into district boundaries. Students and their parents/guardians must voluntarily choose the independent study methodology that is employed at this school. Reasons that students attend include medical hardships, family hardships, safety considerations, court order, or other conditions that render placement at either the comprehensive or continuation high schools inappropriate.
