The Fine Arts Department’s mission and goals focus on making the arts a vital, visible and integral part of the Oakwood environment and beyond. State-of-the-art stage sound and lighting system, dance classes for middle and upper school students, ceramics classes, a baby grand piano and additional upright pianos for each music classroom along with the recent addition of a theatre course and AP Art History course are just a few examples of our dedication to the arts.
Oakwood has assembled a team of teachers who are experts in their art form and continue to seek professional development opportunities whenever possible. Our teachers care deeply about their students’ success and are passionate about seeing students grow to their full potential teaching within the curriculum and beyond including providing extracurricular opportunities such as Glee Club, Beautification Club, Arts Honor Societies, the spring mainstage production, Variety Show, Kings Dominion Music Festival, Solo Festival, All-District Band, Eastern Regional Orchestra and more.
