More About Oak Hill Middle School
As one of four middle schools in the city, Oak Hill Middle School seeks not only to educate its students in the academic sense, but also to instill in them respect for individuals and their differences. Like the district's other three middle schools, Oak Hill participates in the after school EEE program - Excellence, Enrichment and Exploration. This program includes activities such as sports and student clubs like yearbook, newspaper and math team. Lead by Principal Eva Thompson, students at Oak Hill continuing in the Newton Public Schools matriculate to Newton South High School. Oak Hill is accessible by the #52 MBTA bus, which stops nearby at the intersection of Wheeler Street and Meadowbrook Road.
