Oaklawn 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.
