We are absolutely thrilled with Oakwood! After struggling through the public school system for many years, we knew our bright, curious and yet frustrated daughter needed a school that knew how to teach her the way she needed to learn. Small classroom sizes, multisensory learning, and a focus on giving our daughter tools and techniques for a lifetime of successful learning have not only ensured she has learned the content, but it has brought back the excitement for learning! And, the positive atmosphere -- administration, teachers, and peers -- has helped build her confidence as a good student.

After 8 years at Oakwood, my son recently started 9th grade at an area college prep school. Although I already thought the world of Oakwood, I was thrilled and amazed to see how well prepared he was for high school. I am now able to "norm" his skill level against "typically developing" students, and am so grateful to realize his abilities are certainly on par with, and in many areas beyond, those of his peers. Oakwood is an excellent educational experience for any student. We initially went to Oakwood to protect my son's self-image and grow his confidence as he learned to cope with his learning differences, and we ended up with a strong learner well-equipped to handle the demands of a college prep curriculum.
