Academe of the Oaks is a Waldorf school. When I came to the school for a visitation day, I was very nervous. Based off of their website, I didn't think that I had what it took to "survive" at the school. The students were nice and weird at the same time, and some of the work was very new to me. Now that I have been attending Academe of the Oaks I have a completely different view about the school. I am the first Muslim to attend this school, and hopefully the first one to graduate. When I first came to the school, I felt like I had to set the best example, because I felt like I had to "represent Muslims". Luckily, I found out that I could be myself, while still giving them a positive image of Muslims/Islam. The teachers expect a lot from the students, but they really want us to succeed and be prepared for college, and for the rest of our lives. At first, the work and teaching methods were hard to adjust to, but now I know that as long as I do my best, I should be fine. This school has really pushed be to be more socially active, as well as helped develop my speech skills. One of the best things that I like about this school is how art is incorporated in almost every subject. My drawing skills have improved so much since I joined this school, and for that I am extremely grateful. I know look at pictures in a completely different way. And not only art as in drawings or paintings, but art expressed in poetry, and monologues, plays, the list goes on and on. I am so grateful and blessed to be at this school and I can't imagine myself being anywhere else.

The school is full of events and different types of extracurriculars. For example, there will be art classes for every grade every week, as well as PE or dancing class. Twice in a week, there will be music class for everyone and each of us can choose what music class he/she wants to attend. There are Jazz band, orchestra, guitar, drumming and choir. Everyone enjoys the class.
For a school with 80 students, the variety of sports offered at Academe and the percentage of students who participate in them (around 80%) is terrific: ultimate Frisbee, tennis, volleyball, soccer, basketball, track and field...many of these teams winning awards every year...I'm sure I'm leaving something out...for both boys and girls, with excellent coaches and support from teachers, students, and parents. Another important and different highlight is that Academe believes, still, in recess! The students get a mid-morning break as well as an extended lunch break. While there's plenty of eating and socializing, there's also plenty of Frisbee throwing, basketball playing, and more. It makes for more awake, engaged students.
