I have a child who graduated a few years ago and another in the Upper School. We have been at Oakwood since they were both in Kindergarten. This is the BEST investment we have made in our children's lives. These are the most caring teachers, administrators, and parents. If I could do it all over again, I would have them at Oakwood again.
