Open Quote Oaklawn Language Academy is wonderful magnet school with caring teachers. The school is a language immersion program for students in grades K-8 grades. Studies have shown that learning a new language helps children improve their problem solving skills, increase their cognitive development, become more culturally diverse, and be more competitive in the workforce. I have witnessed improved test scores by my children attending Oaklawn.

Don't miss out on an opportunity for a quality education that's free. If you want your children to be globally competitive citizens demonstrating high academic achievement, bilingualism, bi-literacy and bi-cultural, consider the immersion curriculum at Oaklawn.

Oaklawn's success has resulted in substantial media coverage and numerous accolades from the Department of Public Instruction.
School of High Growth 2007 - 2008
School or Progress 2008 - 2009
School of Progress 2009 - 2010
We have also met "AYP" (Adequate Yearly Progress) for 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011.
Magnet School of America honored Oaklawn as a "School of Distinction" for the years 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011.

Oaklawn Language Academy, a bilingual window to the world. 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.
