Philip – Day Student – Class of 2021
I think what sets Oakwood apart from other schools is how accepting everyone is on campus; as soon as I walked on campus for the first day of school I already felt like I had been here for months, everyone knew my name, they offered help when I needed it and everything felt normal. At Oakwood, I feel that I can express my opinion, personality, etc. every day without being looked down upon or judged; Oakwood is a very important piece of my life because they’ve helped me become who I am and helped me feel more comfortable speaking up and getting my voice out there. Oakwood gives you that feeling of family and community that you don’t really get in other schools because you meet so many new and interesting personalities and get the opportunity to become close with everyone in the community.
