Oak Hill Middle School Programs




Vision and Purpose

SAGE operates as a school-within-a-school on the Oak Hill Middle School campus, emphasizing a rigorous, project-based education with thematic instruction that integrates science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics into all areas of curriculum. SAGE offers an environment in which students grow into problem solvers and innovators. Students become visionaries who understand that perseverance and passion can change the world for the better.

Rigorous, Integrated Curriculum

Teachers collaborate and implement STEAM-focused and thematic curriculum. Students are challenged with advanced science and mathematics coursework including the opportunity in eighth grade to earn high school credit in mathematics, and physical science.


What makes SAGE unique?

Sixth Grade

 The sixth-grade curriculum allows students to explore real-world challenges in an academic environment focused on integrating earth science, technology, engineering, math, and the arts. Through inquiry-based learning and partnerships with the local business community, students gain skills that are critical to success in the 21st century. Problem solving is taught through tasks and projects designed to allow students to THINK their way to an answer.

Seventh Grade

 Seventh-grade students are immersed in an environment of exploration
with an emphasis on service-learning, career exploration, and leadership development. During the year, students participate in many exciting projects including filmmaking, community-based projects, gardening, and recycling.  Learning is enhanced through creative problem solving projects related
to school and community.

Eighth Grade

 Eighth grade students become self-reliant problem solvers.  With integration of design investigations and technology, students collect and organize data, draw conclusions, and apply understandings to implement solutions to real-world problems.  Projects include a roller coaster design, Rube Goldberg machine, forensic investigations, and other explorations that incorporate physical science, math and engineering. Language arts and Georgia studies are integrated as students become community problem solvers.
