Overview

Oakwood School says

Oakwood School, founded in 1971 is a private, non-profit, co-educational day school for elementary and middle school students with mild to moderate learning differences. Our students are of average to above average potential and exhibit a discrepancy between their potential and their current level of achievement. Oakwood School promotes a multisensory educational program in which students with learning differences are guided to achieve their unique academic and social potential in a nurturing community environment.

Curriculum

At Oakwood, we focus on meeting a child where he/she is, filling in foundational skills that may be missing, remediating areas of need, and helping each child recognize and believe in his/her unique potential.

To accomplish this, we use proven, traditional, research-based teaching methods as well as newer methods and technologies based on brain research. Our student to teacher ratio is 6 to 1 for most of our classes, allowing for maximum individual attention.
