A letter from our Head of School, Jaime Dominguez

Reflecting on the 2022-23 school year, what stands out are the many opportunities we had to, once again, gather together in person. Our first-ever Oakwood community picnic was an exuberant start to the year. This joy continued through every assembly, game, celebration, concert, and performance I had the pleasure to be a part of. From the Special Event to the Gender Justice Summit, State of the School, and our K-12 All-School Assembly, there was a joyful abundance of milestone events. Each and every moment that we were together again, our community’s shared sense of purpose and care for one another was palpable.

Three strategic priorities guided us along the way: Action, Belonging, and Curriculum. These priorities, embodied through work in the classroom and beyond, reflect our dedication to nurturing well-rounded individuals who not only excel academically but also develop the skills and empathy necessary to thrive in a complex and interconnected world. Our students learn what it means to be part of a community by understanding that we depend on one another and through witnessing countless acts of kindness and generosity.   

This Annual Report is a record of the boundless support exhibited by our community and its daily impact on the lives of students. These contributions made by our volunteers and donors are instrumental in advancing student-centered initiatives, many of which originated years ago and continue to evolve in alignment with our Statement of Philosophy. Your generous donations strengthen our curricular offerings and enable the professional growth of educators and administrators. Furthermore, your gifts broaden access to an Oakwood education for students from diverse socioeconomic backgrounds through our financial assistance program. 

Every member of our community holds the power to shape our future, and every single act of giving makes a tangible difference to our diverse and dynamic students. As we continue to see year after year, when Oakwood functions as a collective whole, we progress toward the fulfillment of our highest goals. I extend my gratitude to all who have helped bring Oakwood School to where it is today and who continue to carry us forward.
