School Notes:

Oakland is a small co-educational boarding and day school for children in grades 1-8. Oakland offers an individualized program, ungraded curriculum, and daily one-to-one instruction. Oakland's program is beneficial to students that need to build skills in reading, written language, science, history, and math. The program is well suited for children needing support in study skills, organizational skills, and academic confidence. The small class size (5:1 student to teacher ratio) is beneficial for students struggling with attention issues or those that get lost in a large class setting. Oakland's mission is three-fold: to enable students to successfully return to mainstream education at their appropriate grade level; to provide students with the tools to learn; and to instill in students the confidence required to reach their academic and personal potential. Students participate in a variety of activities that include sports, off campus events and community projects. Weekly clubs are a great way to foster peer relations, explore interests and learn a variety of skills. There are three structured study halls per week for boarding students to complete homework and reinforce study and organizational skills. We have a variety of intramural sports and a wonderful horseback riding program included for all interested students. A 450 acre campus provides endless opportunities for outdoor activities.

School Reviews

Oakland School has made a tremendous difference in my daughter's life. She came there shy and beginning to feel badly about herself because of her difficulties in school. Within a few weeks in the program, I could see her confidence growing and her love of learning returning. The teachers are outstanding. The care about each student and really know how to motivate them to do their best. The administration is very involved. The campus is beautiful. The children are outside everyday and surrounded by trees and grass. My daughter has particularly benefitted from the horseback riding program. She had never riden before she when to Oakland, and she has discovered a love of horses and riding. Working with the horses has further increased her confidence and her strength, flexibility and coordination. Oakland is outstanding and as one other parent said, worth every penny. I would encourage you to go out and visit the school.

Classes at Oakland are very small-- its overall student-teacher ratio is only 5:1! Every student gets the attention they need to reach their potential.
