Welcome to Quimby!
Quimby Oak Middle School, in the Evergreen School District, was established in 1968 and is located at the base of the Evergreen foothills in southeast San Jose. Quimby Oak attained the status of a California Distinguished School in 1992, 1996, 2001, and 2013. In 2015, Quimby Oak attained the California Gold Ribbon Award.
Over the past fifteen years Quimby Oak Middle School has experienced a complete remoderization of our entire facility. Beginning in 2000, a state of the art gymnasium came on line with all classrooms remodeled the following year. Most recently Quimby Oak has added a new library, six new math classrooms, three new science classrooms, six remodeled student restrooms, three computer labs, expansion of the physical education blacktop, beautiful landscaping and new walkways and retaining walls to further assure student safety.
We believe these many wonderful enhancements to our campus combined with a rigorous curriculum expectation carefully matched to Common Core State Standards provides each student with the tools to achieve a solid educational foundation for the 21st century.
We encourage and expect our students to strive to do their best. We know that within a well-defined, consistent, structured environment, each child has the capability to achieve academic success and, thus, develop self-esteem.
We encourage and intend that students will take advantage of the opportunities for reading and writing, will realize the necessity for problem solving, will interact with other students and staff members in a positive, mature manner, and will develop the skills needed to adapt to the demands of a rapidly changing world.
