Our students are ever at the center of all we do and they are surrounded by countless individuals—parents & guardians, grandparents, alumni & alumni families, faculty & staff—who give of themselves with courage and conviction.


We revel in cross-disciplinary, complex thinking, supported by a robust curriculum in academics, the arts, and athletics. Expanding programs such as the Da Vinci Lab and world languages at the elementary campus, and Advanced Studies and college counseling at the secondary campus, extend our curriculum even further.

We are grateful to you, our community, who so generously offered your dedication and support for our school last year. Thanks to your volunteerism and contributions, we were able to better serve our beloved Oakwood community.

Alex Susman, Board of Trustees Chair

We take action on the issues that matter at Oakwood and in the larger world. Prioritizing sustainability and re-focusing our Immersion program on all that Los Angeles has to offer, we provide students with the skills and opportunities to put their learning into action as problem-solvers, creators, and leaders.

I remain ever-grateful for the countless ways the Oakwood community comes together to lend a hand, lift each other up and contribute talents and resources all in support of our incredible students.

Nancy Leptuch Virrey, Director of Advancement

Oakwood School is rooted in community and relationships. Affinity and alliance spaces help ensure that all members of the community feel that they belong and can bring their whole selves to their school experience. We continue to increase the diversity of our student body, faculty, and staff.
Thank you Oakwood Owl
Oakwood’s newly-launched K-12 meal program fueled learning through menus that put student nutrition first while also benefiting the health of the planet through locally-sourced ingredients and reduced waste.
