Principal's Message

Dear Parents,
It is my pleasure to welcome you to Stanley G. Oswalt Academy. Oswalt serves about approximetly 980 students in Kindergarten through eighth grade. Our students have diverse backgrounds. Our families come from across the globe and choose to come to Oswalt because a high quality education is important to everybody here at Oswalt.

Oswalt has been authorized as an International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme school (PYP). The International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (PYP) is a comprehensive program that has something to offer all learners. As a PYP school, Oswalt Academy is expected to implement the programme in an inclusive manner, so that every student is fully engaged and an active participant in his or her own learning. The IB Primary Years Program is centered around the developing child as inquirer, during the formative elementary years. It prepares them for becoming a lifelong learner in a global community. For more information visit http://www.ibo.org/pyp/

Oswalt has been awarded the prestigious Apple Distinguished School for four consecutive years, the first school in California to receive this award four consecutive years. Oswalt was recognized this award due to our innovative use of technology in our classrooms to enhance student learning. In addition ,Oswalt has been awarded the California Business Education for Excellence Award for three consecutive years. These awards are testament to the outstanding community dedicated to student learning we have here at Oswalt.
Everyone involved at Oswalt is committed to helping students be the best they can be. Parents, teachers, staff, and students all work hard to support the vision of innovative learning for all students.

We welcome you to contact any staff member to find out how you can be involved in our school. If you don’t have time to come to school we do have opportunities for you to help from home. The most important thing you can do is to help your own child be well prepared for school and focused on learning.
