Your child can be curious and kind, inventive and watchful, playful and serious. He’s ready to take his first steps into a bigger world. At Oakwood, your child learns from experts in early childhood development. He builds foundations in math, language, and social studies while discovering the wonders of science, music, and art. He grows stronger and more confident through physical exercise and musical movement. By kindergarten, he’s studying Spanish, too.
We also give your child lots of opportunities to play, explore, and make new friends. Because at Oakwood, we don’t rush childhood—we celebrate it.
As your child learns every subject from experts in the field, expresses himself joyously and authentically, rises to clear academic expectations, follows and sets moral examples, and participates in our exuberant culture of exploration, Oakwood School helps him grow into a well-spoken, confident, vibrant individual and citizen.
At Oakwood School, our educational philosophy carefully balances structure and openness to help your child grow as a creative, disciplined, joyful learner. Step onto our idyllic Morgan Hill campus and you immediately feel Oakwood’s philosophy shining through.
Your child is multidimensional—curious and kind, thoughtful and improvisational, perceptive and exuberant. And you want a school that celebrates and hones all her gifts—not separately, but in concert. A school that knows she’s not just one song, but a symphony. In this open yet strengthening environment, children grow into nimble, joyful, persistent thinkers, who are ready to take on any challenge.
An Oakwood education is a comprehensive, collaborative, intentional process that prepares students fully for their next stage in life—whether that’s kindergarten, college, or somewhere in between.
Through the five tenets of our founding philosophy,
disciplined and jubilant self-expression,
high academic expectations,
grounded moral examples,
we foster curiosity, mastery, and independence. Our teachers get to know every student as an individual, including the ways he or she learns best.
Our program also ensures that students themselves understand and effectively employ their own learning methods. We teach them to take charge of their own education—at Oakwood, in college, and throughout their lives.
