Oak Meadow Elementary and the Buckeye Union Mandarin Immersion Charter School are located in beautiful El Dorado Hills, CA. and is one of six elementary schools in Buckeye Union School District. With an enrollment of 695 students, we are home to students with diverse cultural, language, and socio-economic backgrounds making us one of the most diverse schools in the district.
Cooperation, compassion, and diversity are celebrated in a safe and nurturing environment and our mission is to provide meaningful educational experiences that encourage lifelong learning. We work together with our families and community to support and develop each child intellectually, physically, socially and emotionally. Our school mascot, the raptor, reflects our desire to soar to new heights in learning each day.
We provide a quality, standards-based curriculum that ensures every child will meet or exceed proficiency. In addition, many special programs provide support and educational opportunities for our students including an after school extended day program, cross-age buddies, technology partnership with Intel, and push in/out intervention programs. Our students are encouraged to become involved and practice responsible habits through participation in school community programs such as T.E.A.M. (Together Everyone Achieves More) Raptors who organize and lead lunch-time games and activities and help students find friends to play with. Students serve as parking lot supervisors to assist children and parents during pick-up and drop-off times.
Parent participation and support is critical to the success of our school programs. Our school-wide art program, Meet the Masters, is taught by parent volunteers and brings a quality arts education to all of our students. Parents and staff serve on the School Site Council, Budget, Master Plan, Wellness and Technology Committees to provide input into our school and district LCAP. Our P.T.O. also plays an important role, generating and donating funds that greatly enhance the school’s existing programs.
We are a National Blue Ribbon and California Distinguished School and we invite you to become a part of the family. Call or stop by to find out more about our school and the programs and supports we offer to our students. We know you will come to love Oak Meadow/BUMI as much as we do.
