Oak Hammock Middle School is one of the only middle schools in the district to offer students the opportunity to learn the graphic design skills of Adobe Photoshop CS6, used by leading artists in the industry.
As the Center for the Arts, digital design students serve as the school's in-house marketing department, creating and publishing posters and flyers for schools events. Additionally, students participate in a variety of district and state competitions, including LCSD's monthy character education contest, Jr. Thespian's marketing division, and Digital Lee.
In November 2015, 7th grade advanced digital design students Melissa Martin and Megan McDaniel both qualified for the state Jr. Thespian competition for their marketing designs. At the state competition in February 2016, both girls received straight superiors from the judges, and Megan had the highest possible scores across the board, also receiving Best in Show for Marketing & Publicity. #1 in the state! AMAZING!
In May 2015, OHMS students Linda Lopez and Mark Caglioti won 1st and 2nd place in the district's Digital Lee competition, a design and technology showcase of the district's most exceptional middle and high school projects. Both the 2011-2012 and 2013-2014 OHMS yearbooks were named the Best Middle School Yearbook at the Digital Lee competition as well.
