Oakwood was born from a vision for education that placed the individual child in the center of that vision. Curriculum – developed according to state academic standards – was presented experientially. Teachers and students shared the learning experience.
As Oakwood has grown, this has remained a cornerstone of the Oakwood Philosophy
To preserve that philosophy, our leadership has periodically evaluated the status of the school's programs, student outcomes, campus life, financial stability, personnel, facilities, and its ability to meet current and future academic, technological and financial needs.
In 1998, the Board of Trustees began a 3 year process to develop a Strategic Plan for Oakwood School. The goals of the long range strategic planning process were:
- to assess the school's strengths and weaknesses;
- to envision institutional growth and change over the next decade; and
- to develop strategic goals and strategies for achieving those goals.
At the conclusion of this process, eight key areas were identified:
- Marking & Communications
In the years since the Plan was adopted, both Board and school committees have studied these issues and developed initiatives for them in support of the future health and growth of the school.
