Oakwood School

11600 Magnolia Blvd, North Hollywood, CA 91601

Oakwood's location in North Hollywood offers students convenient access to the cultural, intellectual and recreational advantages of the Los Angeles metropolitan area. The curriculum combines a rigorous academic program with a broad exposure to the fine and performing arts. Opportunities beyond the traditional college preparatory curriculum are offered through electives, special studies, field trips and extracurricular activities. Juniors and seniors who wish to focus on issues and topics not covered in the curriculum may pursue independent study with faculty members or design courses on special topics. The spring immersion program, required for students in grades 7-12, offers more than 50 in-depth courses emphasizing experiential learning and field study. Students perform five hours of community service in each of the seventh and eighth grades, and a combined 50 hours in grades 9-12. As a complement to classroom learning, Oakwood students in grades 6-11 spend a week away from school participating in an organized experiential program. Settings include Washington, DC; the mountains surrounding Big Bear Lake; the Catalina Island Marine Institute; Joshua Tree National Park; Sequoia National Park; and the Sonoran Desert, where 11th graders canoe down the Colorado River. Students may also participate in mathematics competitions, county and national science fairs, and the school's annual arts festival. The school's two campuses consist of nearly four acres. Each location has a nearby park to use for a variety of athletic activities. The elementary school occupies quarters about one mile away on Moorpark Street.
