Wonderful school and positive learning environment! My children are learning another language, their circle of friends are so diverse, their teachers come from many different countries, as a parent who has travelled all over the world it's important that my children get a globally minded education. So thankful we found it at Oaklawn.
If you are interesteing on diversity or multi language opportunity for your kids, oaklawn is the school for you. Just in two months, my kindergarten daughter can constructs phrases in spanish. Amazing.
My school is GREAT!!! It is such a wonderful oppurtunity for children to learn bilingually as well as biculturally.
Oaklawn is a Spanish immersion school. My student is receiving the required curricula and to be multilingual at no additional cost to me!
Oaklawn Language Academy is wonderful magnet school with caring teachers. The school is a language immersion program for students in grades K-8 grades.

This school is a hidden gem. Those who hold onto fear in their hearts miss out!
It is a relatively small school where the students don't get lost in the process of learning.
My grand-daughter attends this school, she has excelled in all her classes. Her learning comes easy for her because she has teachers who really care. Most teachers I have dealt with don't care they just work for a paycheck, passes any child , trouble maker or what to get rid of them.This I know as a true fact. At this school I have seen their levels of education and the difference my grand-daughter has been taught with well educated , caring people.. Thanks to them , my grand-daughter will always want to learn and someday will become a great professional in a business.
Oaklawn Language is a small school with a huge heart! Our school is nestled in Uptown Charlotte. The teachers and parents offer support and we all have one goal.....student success and growth.
Oaklawn is awesome!!! Our school is diverse and teaches our children to be multilingual in two languages! It is small with a huge heart!!!
It is a wonderful school where you learn respect and love for different cultures and languages
The teachers are enthusiastic and I have overheard them encouraging their young students to take pride in being an educated person.
I've just realized that I had made a mistake - Oaklawn actually goes to grade 5 which thrills me to no end. My daughter is entering her third year and when I dropped her off on her first day of school, it was like coming home. I can only pray that they keep the French program at Oaklawn.
