Oakwood Highlights

The verdict is in on HERE COMES THE JUDGE... and it's H-I-L-A-R-I-O-U-S!!!

Oakwood's beautiful new Gwendolyn Riches Liberal Arts Center Theatre had its debut performance on October 25th and 26th with the high school comedy "Here Comes the Judge." The rapid comedic dialogue, superb acting, and zany characters in this play held the audience's attention. Thank you to everyone who came out to support Oakwood's Performing Arts Program and the cast, tech crew, creative staff, and parent volunteers and supporters for their time, talent, and hard work putting the show together.

Oakwood Students Embody School Spirit During Annual Spirit Week and Assembly

Oakwood students participated in creative and campy themed days throughout spirit week, culminating with the annual Spirit Assembly on Friday, where they exhibited grade-level and school pride. The assembly brought together the entire campus, both lower school and upper school, as well as friends and family. Students participated in grade-level performances, each with their own individual style, and based on a theme chosen to represent the grade for this school year. It's incredible to watch Oakwood students supporting each other and showing Oakwood pride. It's great to be a Hawk!

There is no better investment than surrounding my children with great people who truly want them to succeed in all areas of their life. The best part is watching them achieve that success. Thank you Oakwood!

At Oakwood I feel my children are safe and part of community that cares for one another.

Oakwood Parent

I appreciate that one of the benefits of Oakwood is the overall lack of distraction to learning. That is a real benefit and allows the students to achieve their best.
