Oakwood School provides a multisensory educational program in which students with learning differences are guided to achieve their unique academic and social potential in a nurturing community environment
In addition to its strong academic curriculum, Oakwood School offers a variety of complementary activities, events, and programming that develop the whole student while fostering a strong community spirit.
Students are elected by their peers as class representatives and council officers in order to conduct business that benefits the student body. The council meets once a week and provides a safe environment to learn leadership and practice expression of ideas.
Every day, students take responsibility for raising and lowering the American flag. Nominated by teachers, this select group of students take seriously their charge of honoring the American flag while developing an understanding of civic duty.
The Oakwood Parent Association sponsors various speakers and presenters to share their expertise at Oakwood School. Open to the greater community, these events showcase Oakwood's quest to not only remain experts in the field of learning disabilities but also be leaders.
Continuing 40 years of Oakwood School experience serving students with learning differences, the Oakwood Summer Program is a bridge between academic years, combining the maintenance of academic skills with enrichment and recreation. The program is staffed by experienced Oakwood teachers who provide specialized instruction tailored to the individual needs of each student and who support each student’s social growth.
Organized by the Oakwood Parent Association, this fall lunch provides a wonderful opportunity for parents, students and staff to enjoy visiting with one another and to reflect on Oakwood’s values. The Oakwood community looks forward to this event!
Scheduled in the fall and spring, students look forward to a day of fun and teamwork. Students are divided into teams, which consist of students from different age groups and lead by the older students and a sponsor teacher. The days are organized with opening and closing ceremonies, and multiple activities in between.
