"We aim to elevate Oakwood Schools as a model of excellence, where rigorous academic standards meet innovative practices,” said Dr. Gupta. “Together, we're dedicated to creating an environment that nurtures the potential of every student, preparing them for a future of success and innovation."

Under Gupta’s leadership, Oakwood's commitment to excellence and open, transparent communication is showcased in work happening across the district, including:

  • New Quality Profile Report: This comprehensive document offers deeper insights into district performance beyond traditional metrics. 

  • "State of the Schools" address: This address and subsequent videos provided a platform to highlight achievements and discuss future goals.
