About the River System
Oaklea is a school-within-a-school. Each branch is designated by a river name (Columbia, 5 Rivers, Santiam, Willamette). Each river is a cooperative team that consists of interdisciplinary teachers. The river system is used to make student activity decisions, to group staff and students, and to aid in lunch rotation. This is an unique system with many benefits. A student's "river" is determined by their TEAM teacher. For example, if a student has a Santiam TEAM teacher, then they are a Santiam student. All fifth grade teachers and students are located in the "Five Rivers" hallway. Sixth grade students are located within the Willamette River for core classes. Both these aspects limit 5th and 6th grade students from travelling across the building which makes it easier for them to get to their classes. During 7th and 8th grade, students travel more between the Columbia and Satiam River for their classes

About TEAM
incoming and new students are assigned to a TEAM teacher who will be their adult mentor for their year at Oaklea. TEAM is made up of 5th or 6th or 7th/ 8th , are created to provide an environment of diversity and understanding. Homerooms also provide a place for students mentoring students.

TEAM meets daily for the first 8 minutes. This is where the daily announcements are heard, and any other "business" is taken care of. TEAM time includes academic counseling, notebook check, and study hall, as well as for "TEAM activity" and team building activities. Some TEAM days are used for a "River Activity" which involves all the TEAM from that grade level in a competition or cooperative activity.

See Daily Time Schedule for more information on how the TEAM schedule is used to determine lunch times.
