Nathan Hale will courageously empower students to explore their passions through individualized educational opportunities supported by meaningful relationships. We will implement strategies that involve working outside the school walls and at all times, guide our students to develop self-advocacy and self-reliance. Preparing our students for a world that changes at lightning speed, we will embrace these values - adaptability, critical thinking, collaboration and innovation.
Our vision is to provide a safe and supportive environment where students are inspired to joyfully learn and apply academic skills, personal values, and habits of mind to succeed in high school, college and within the community.
At Nathan Hale, we take pride in creating experiences through which each student who walks in our doors can find a niche, a school support system, and a purpose. We value and celebrate and individuality of each student while approaching our work together with a team mindset, accepting each other and pushing each other to strive for greatness each day. We focus on graduating students who are ready to serve our community through continued education, the workforce, or public service.
We offer the district's only culinary arts education program. Hale's Kitchen is open to the public and provides students with real-life experiences working in the hospitality industry. Our students can explore career pathways in the military and gain leadership and life skills training through our highly decorated JROTC program. Our students can also participate in AP classes and concurrent enrollment at Tulsa Community College and Tulsa Tech.
To better equip students with career-ready skills, Hale Beyond focuses on reaching real-life skills through internships, group projects, and The Seven Habits of Highly Effective Teens. We pair students with mentors who will act as champions in the students' success through personalized planning and one-on-one weekly meetings. Connected students will learn life skills as well as content in an environment that allows their uniqueness to shine. Student receives a Chromebook to work on so they are never out of touch. Hale Beyond gives our students more freedom of choice, freedom of space, and ownership of learning to be better prepared for college, work, and real life.
