Beatrice – Day Student – Class of 2023
I knew that Oakwood was a special place from the very first day of school—I immediately connected with both my teachers and with the diverse student body. I had never experienced the kind of open dialogue and debate that happens in Oakwood’s classrooms, which has expanded my view of what learning can be; not just memorization, but real understanding. Oakwood taught me that the value of education is so much more than the extrinsic reward of grades—it lies in experimentation, and in not always achieving perfect success.
As a student at Oakwood, I have been able to participate in a wide variety of opportunities, from Model UN, to the soccer team, to the Literary Magazine. Oakwood has allowed me to grow as a student, and more importantly, as a human being.
