Oakwood has a close-knit community with small class sizes that allow for teacher interaction to better cement information in your mind (the small dating pool is a bit of a drag though). Most of the teachers are fine, but there are a couple that either don't teach or are downright creepy. A couple teachers are outstanding though! The coursework is intense, but with good time management, is ok. The faculty is very Mormon, so a bit of homophobia and slut shaming dress code violations are common from here to there (not saying that it is ok, just that it happens). I remember when I was in eighth grade and asked to take my then-girlfriend to a dance they said it would "make them uncomfortable." What a ridiculous thing to say to two CHILDREN. There's no need to worry about making friends, since Oakwood is a very accepting community in general. This school is definitely made for very academically oriented, driven people.

I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at Oakwood Secondary School! As an academic environment, it has succeeded in creating a space which has allowed me to grown and develop into an avid learner. The teachers have, for the most part, been helpful and personable, which has made my highschool career enjoyable and inspiring. Looking back, I think that Oakwoods biggest issue is its homogenous student body, which slows dynamic conversations to a crawl. That being said, the administration and admissions departments are making a clear effort, and I think future students benefit from a more diverse class.
I was very involved in student organizations at Oakwood and I really like the school. The administration and the faculty especially are absolutely wonderful. Many of my teachers could be college professors. The small size of the school allows me to know my teachers at a deeper level. Because I have a more personal relationship with them than I would with teachers at a larger school, I am inspired to learn more and more about my subject. I wouldn’t choose to go to this school because of sports or clubs. Also, beware that because the school is so small, social groups are pretty limited. There is a lot of diversity among the student population however if you don’t like the people in your grade, there isn’t much you can do to find new friends. People like me go to Oakwood because it is-above all- academically challenging. It prepares all of its students for college and students get to spend time on the absolutely beautiful campus.
