Oakley's Schools: A P
The Oakley school district has six elementary, two middle, and two high schools, which offer plenty of options for families with school-age children. The class sizes in Oakley's schools are small, allowing the schools to focus on instilling a love of learning as well as achieving according to academic standards. Additionally, there are several certified preschools for parents who are interested in having their children get a head start in their education. Developing well-rounded students is clearly a priority in Oakley. On top of the schools, there are also after school programs and youth outreach available for learners of all abilities.
Oakley's recreational offerings are quite broad, ranging from the amenities in its parks to the classes and spaces offered at its buildings in the city. There is a strong focus on sports, classes, and after school programs for children and youth. For example, Oakley has several organizations that offer baseball, basketball, football, cheer, and swimming. The recreation buildings have rooms with wall-to-floor mirrors that are perfect for dance classes, and these rooms can also double as meeting or event spaces. The parks offer various kinds of sports fields, play structures, an amphitheater, and picnic tables that prove perfect for any weekend activity you would want to do with the kids.
