Open Quote Oakwood is a wonderful elementary school -- it has a positive, upbeat, caring environment and talented teachers who work hard to accommodate different learning styles and personalities of the children. Staff cooperate at the grade level and the benefit shows in the high quality of lessons and creative approaches. Our family has been at Oakwood for 2 1/2 years, and my children are thriving. I love that they have art and music, important curriculum that has been cut from many elementary schools. They're proactive about disciplinary problems, taking an active approach to discouraging bullying and encouraging community, respect and model behavior. The school also has a very active PTA and parent volunteers. Another thing I love about Oakwood is the ethnic diversity within the school -- as the world becomes smaller, I feel it is more important for children at a younger age to have awareness of and respect for diversity amongst people. I believe the diversity within the school gives my children day to day experience understanding, respecting and cooperating with others who may appear or dress differently, speak a different language or have different ideas. I love Oakwood and am very happy to send my children there. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
