• Principal's Message


    Welcome to the White Oak Elementary. My name is Jarrod Gatlin and I’m the proud school principal. I began serving as the principal in July of 2017.   White Oak is a small school with student population of about 310. We have students in Kindergarten through fourth grade.  In addition to those 310 students, we (along with Maple Elementary) also house the Developmental  Preschool Program for Avon and a preschool program for Kindergarten bound students aged 3-5.   


    The White Oak staff is committed to serving their community.  Our teachers do an amazing job of preparing students for success in school. Students in grades one through four experience student centered learning. They are both excited and challenged by our rigorous curriculum.


    White Oak offers an outstanding academic program, diverse learning community and exceptionally dedicated staff. Our school community believes strongly in school-family collaboration. Parents are encouraged to take an active role in their child’s learning. We have a strong PTO that hosts several family events each year!  In addition to these fun events, they also work tirelessly to support the staff by volunteering and grant funding.


    The Avon Community School Corporation is one of the best in Indiana. White Oak is proud to meet the high expectations and to take part in the many learning opportunities offered to insure your children have the best elementary experience possible. I want to encourage you to visit and look forward to another great school year!
