Oasis Academy -FREE (no tuition!) public charter school - kicks off its 10th anniversary serving the Fallon Community this year. Fallon’s Charter school has grown from only serving Kindergarten through eighth grade students to having a graduating class of over 40 students in 2021. Many of these students graduated with both their associates degrees from Western Nevada College and their high school diplomas with no cost to students or parents. From the beginning Oasis has prided itself on being a free educational choice for families in Fallon.
Other highlights include a 100% graduation rate, state championship athletics, and over 1 million dollars in scholarships awarded to high school seniors. Along with athletics such as softball, volleyball, lacrosse, and basketball, clubs and organizations have grown as well to include Honor’s Society, Lego Robotics, Archery, FFA, e-sports, and much more.
The school has maintained its 5 star rating even through a difficult year with a pandemic and the challenges of pivoting to remote learning.
“This is even more exciting as we have recently learned that our students have grown substantially even in the midst of Covid. A true testament to the dedication of our staff to our students!” added Rochelle Tisdale, CAO.
“I am absolutely thrilled about what we have been able to accomplish in the first 10 years and the sky's the limit going forward. From day one, we have had the very best people on this team and that holds true today. This staff is so committed to the whole child and it makes all the difference,” said CEO Melissa Mackedon.
