The mission of Red Oak ISD is to create life-long learners who are academically and socially prepared to be productive citizens by providing a safe environment with strong parental and community involvement where all children are challenged through stimulating learning experiences to meet the community goal of “Realizing Our Individual Student’s Dreams.” 


WE ARE a community of learners. As Educators, Staff, Parents and Board of Trustees in the RED OAK family, we embody these attributes in ourselves and desire to teach our students:

WE POSSESS the knowledge, skills, heart, and commitment to make a difference.

WE DARE to dream, work hard, and go the extra mile to make those dreams come true.

WE ASPIRE to learn—looking beyond our present classroom walls to seek knowledge and innovation.

WE REPRESENT honesty and respect in all that we do—focusing on the needs of students, families, and the community.

WE FLOURISH in an open, safe and vibrant environment—meeting challenges and seizing opportunities.

WE RECOGNIZE effort, embrace improvement, strengthen achievement, and continually pursue excellence.

Our Students’ Success Is Our Success

We Are Red Oak!
