The Middle School at Oakwood builds upon the skills learned in Lower School and emphasizes student independence, both personally and educationally. Small class sizes provide students with more individualized attention, which facilitates exploration into new ideas and the development of critical thinking skills. The challenging college preparatory curriculum follows a holistic developmental approach, with increased complexity as students progress through each grade.

Years of effort and hard work culminate in Oakwood's Upper School. Our demanding college prep curriculum prepares students intellectually and personally for the next step, emphasizing independent critical thinking and providing and encouraging new opportunities for learning. Comprehensive technology integration continues as each student has a personal iPad or laptop. Through experienced and individual college guidance and supported by the Naviance college readiness system, we regularly place students in the school of their first choice.

The Oakwood Experience

Personalized Education in a Social Environment

Whether it's at our OASES Micro Farm, learning computer programming in the third grade, the individualized attention students receive, or at one of our over 45 different clubs, extracurricular activities or athletic programs, Oakwood students experience REMARKABLE every day. From the moment students arrive in the morning, students are welcomed and encouraged by staff members and the Head of School, Rob Peterson, who knows each child by name, setting the tone for a positive experience each and every day.

An eight to one student to faculty ratio, an experienced teaching staff provides students with a more personalized learning environment, and individualized attention they need to reach their true potential. An open and safe environment where students feel welcomed allows students to foster meaningful relationships with their peers and teachers.
