Welcome to Our School

Welcome from WOLCS CEO Dr. Debbera Peoples-Lee
Dear West Oak Lane Charter School Community, Staff, and Families,
     We have much to be proud of and to reflect upon as we advance into our second decade.   For more than 20 years, West Oak Lane Charter School families, Board of Trustees, and our administration have supported our students in achieving at high levels. It has been an honor to serve as your CEO.
     We have accomplished so much as a collective group of individuals committed to children.  The achievements of our students and the many exciting accolades we have received affirms our success in facilitating learning for every child and their ability to feel valued, included, and nurtured.
     As we work to ensure ongoing growth for West Oak Lane Charter School, we must remember that growth requires change.  We must also recognize that with change, there are often challenges.  As we continue adjusting to changes in the education landscape, we must prepare ourselves for more hard-hitting challenges, while at the same time, learn to embrace those changes and the opportunities they present for future improvement in the quality of our educational program.  Changes make us better; challenges make us stronger.
     To our former students, you have been nurtured and taught by the best – your teachers and your parents.  Continue to use your talents and the ones you discover along your journey to improve our community and our world.  We are all tremendously proud of you and your accomplishments!
     To our parents, we cannot thank you enough for entrusting us to provide a nurturing and quality educational experience for your children.  Your contribution to their academic career at WOLCS provides a sound partnership for ensuring their current and future success.
     Whatever comes our way in the next 20 years, I am confident West Oak Lane Charter School will continue to empower children to be lifelong learners, critical thinkers, and contributing members of the 21st Century and beyond.
