Oak Park Middle is the only middle school in Calcasieu parish with a program that is specifically designed to transition 5th graders into middle school. Our program Where Everybody Belongs or WEB, partners selected 8th grade students with 6th graders to mentor for their entire first year of middle school.
Our 8th grade WEB leaders go through extensive training that allow them the knowledge and skills needed to support and mentor our 6th graders. Before the first day of school WEB has a huge 6th grade orientation. The orientation introduces the 6th graders to their 8th grade mentors through team building activities. They receive a detailed tour of the school which eases first day of middle school anxiety.
