Oakwood believes that travel is an important part of a student’s education. Every year, Oakwood High School sponsors an international trip. Past destinations have included France, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Spain, England, and China. A trip to the Galapagos Islands is planned for the Summer of 2018 and for Spain in the Spring of 2019. Some of students’ most cherished memories of Oakwood High School are related to these trips.
Oakwood believes that travel is an exceptional way for students to deepen their understanding of the world and broaden their perspectives. To that end, Oakwood helps students in their fundraising efforts by providing student work opportunities on the Oakwood campus that help many students achieve their goal of going on an international student trip. Working their way to these countries also helps foster a strong work ethic in students.
