  • Welcome to Oxbow High School!

    Oxbow High School is a grade 7-12 union high school in Bradford, VT. Built in 1971, it serves Bradford and Newbury Town School Districts and accepts tuition students from five other Vermont and New Hampshire towns. River Bend Career and Technical Center, a regional vocational-technical center, is attached to the school. Bradford is located about 30 miles north of the major economic/social center of Hanover and Lebanon, NH and White River Jct, VT and serves as the economic center for the immediate region, as the surrounding towns are more rural with smaller village centers.

    The school continues to meet the needs of students with a traditional schedule of 45 minute periods in a 7 period day. Students in the upper three grades have the opportunity to attend classes in the adjoining River Bend Career and Technical Center (RBCTC) whose schedule complements their home school of Oxbow High School.

    Opportunities for students are offered outside the regular school day including programs that are extensions of the school day courses such as Jazz Band, Open Studio and Homework Support. In addition to the team sports of basketball, baseball, soccer, softball, football, track, cross-country, and Nordic skiing, non-competitive extra curricular activities include Ultimate Frisbee, Disc Golf and Snowboarding. Drivers Education is offered as part of the school program.

    Educational opportunities available to students in the Oxbow area also include a variety of programs through college institutions including Dartmouth, NH Vocational Technical College, University of Vermont, Vermont Technical College, and through VSAC (Vermont Student Assistance Cooperation.).) Programs range from college credit courses to workshops that meet needs of students grades 7-12. The physical connection with River Bend Career and Technical Center allows students and teachers to utilize the Interactive Learning Network Studio. Other institutions in the area include: AVA Gallery, Lebanon College/School for Lifelong Learning, Vocational Rehabilitation Services and several programs for Adult Basic Education and Adult Diploma programs. Educational opportunities also exist through adult education classes at Oxbow High School and Riverbend, as well as offerings from other agencies and groups in the Upper Valley area.

    There is a much wider range of school partnerships with other educational institutions. These organizations include: the Foundation for Excellent Schools, Dartmouth College, Asian Studies Outreach, speakers from Lyndon State, Vermont Technical College, Hood Museum of Art, Japanese-American Club of Dartmouth, and the Lower Cohase Chamber of Commerce. Additional connections are made through RBCTC. Oxbow High School has a long tradition of service to the community. These activities and projects affect the elderly, adult, and youth population of the area. Long before service-learning was an education buzzword, it was an integral part of our school philosophy. Our community and service learning projects run the gamut from individual to group activities, curricular to extracurricular, required to voluntary, and planned to spontaneous.

    The degree to which this public high school is important to the area citizens is reflected in the level of support given to Oxbow. To gain that support the school has reached out to the community and has generally been rewarded with program and budget support from citizens, organizations, businesses and agencies.
