History of White Oak
White Oak Elementary School was constructed in 1965 as the Lower Elementary School for grades one, two, and three, and the Upper Elementary School (housed at the current Maple Elementary) served grades four, five, and six. Kindergarten classes, added in 1976, were housed in the former Administration Building. When Avon Middle School opened in 1981, the sixth grade classes were moved from the elementary to the middle school level. At this time, third grade classes were moved from the Lower Elementary to the Upper Elementary and kindergarten classes were moved to the Lower Elementary. When Pine Tree opened in 1989, the Lower Elementary was renamed White Oak Elementary, and the Upper Elementary was named Maple Elementary. Both grades were reconfigured to serve grades kindergarten through five until Avon Imtermediate School opened for the 1999-2000 school year.
White Oak Elementary School was expanded in 1976 to include a gymnasium, stage, media center, art room, and eight additional classrooms. During the 1994-1995 school year, White Oak Elementary was completely renovated to provide air-conditioning, carpeting, improved kitchen facilities, new wall and windows, disability accessibility, storage, and the latest technology.
