10/31/2011parentOaklawn Language Academy is wonderful magnet school with caring teachers. The school is a language immersion program for students in grades K-8 grades. Studies have shown that learning a new language helps children improve their problem solving skills, increase their cognitive development, become more culturally diverse, and be more competitive in the workforce. I have witnessed improved test scores by my children attending Oaklawn. Don't miss out on an opportunity for a quality education that's free. If you want your children to be globally competitive citizens demonstrating high academic achievement, bilingualism, bi-literacy and bi-cultural, consider the immersion curriculum at Oaklawn. Oaklawn's success has resulted in substantial media coverage and numerous accolades from the Department of Public Instruction. School of High Growth 2007 - 2008 School or Progress 2008 - 2009 School of Progress 2009 - 2010 We have also met "AYP" (Adequate Yearly Progress) for 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011. Magnet School of America honored Oaklawn as a "School of Distinction" for the years 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011. Oaklawn Language Academy, a bilingual window to the world.
12/15/2010parentThis school is a hidden gem. Those who hold onto fear in their hearts miss out!
11/7/2009parentAll of the children are multi-lingual! One less thing to worry about in high school, college, and for the rest of their lives.
11/7/2009parentIt is a relatively small school where the students don't get lost in the process of learning.
11/6/2009otherMy grand-daughter attends this school, she has excelled in all her classes. Her learning comes easy for her because she has teachers who really care. Most teachers I have dealt with don't care they just work for a paycheck, passes any child , trouble maker or what to get rid of them.This I know as a true fact. At this school I have seen their levels of education and the difference my grand-daughter has been taught with well educated , caring people.. Thanks to them , my grand-daughter will always want to learn and someday will become a great professional in a business.

10/5/2009parentThe teachers are enthusiastic and I have overheard them encouraging their young students to take pride in being an educated person.
8/25/2008parentI've just realized that I had made a mistake - Oaklawn actually goes to grade 5 which thrills me to no end. My daughter is entering her third year and when I dropped her off on her first day of school, it was like coming home. I can only pray that they keep the French program at Oaklawn.
