A letter from our Head of School, Jaime Dominguez

I am deeply grateful for the Oakwood School community.

The 2021-2022 school year welcomed teachers and students fully back to campus. While being mindful of the latest safety protocols, we welcomed the happiness of learning together. While not every Oakwood tradition returned in the ways we remembered before the pandemic, I saw resiliency in our young learners every day, felt joy in our classrooms, and was filled with hope for our future.

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. This Annual Report creates a record and gives thanks for the immense generosity of our community. Every aspect of school life is sustained by the people listed within. And as I reflect back on watching the Class of 2022 walk across the stage to receive their diplomas, I’m powerfully reminded that Oakwood’s collective good reaches far beyond our school walls.

Community support has a tangible and immediate impact on everyday life for students. It gives teachers opportunities for professional development, enables field trips that bring lessons to life, and helps serve nutritious school lunches. Our community also sustains dedicated work being done on our highest priority, long-term projects. Through your support, we continue in our efforts to build an aligned and robust curriculum. Through deeply-rooted relationships, we strive to make sure that everyone feels a sense of belonging. Because we are all connected, we educate and inspire students to take action on the issues that matter.

Ultimately, we are all stewards of this school. Every donation and volunteer hour connects us to Oakwood’s past by helping to realize the vision of those who came before us. We also carry within us the potential to transform our future. Nurturing this potential is at the heart of educating young people, but it’s also realized in a myriad of small ways through the relationships that hold us together. I want to thank all of you who played a part in bringing us to where Oakwood School is today, and I look forward to all that is to come.
