After four decades of leadership and service to Oakwood School, Headmaster James Astman will retire from his role on June 30, 2019.

We are fortunate Jim, who had a personal connection to Oakwood’s founders, has brought their original vision to life in innumerable ways. Keeping the Statement of Philosophy at the center of Oakwood’s endeavors, Jim has grown our school into a nationally recognized leader of K-12 progressive education. As an educator, Jim has shared positive and joyful experiences with generations of students in ways that continue to inspire our community.

As Oakwood School moves forward, our Board of Trustees will be sharing information and updates about this transition and the search for our next Head of School.
