Oxford summer school 2014:

Read about our Oxford students in the Marin County Post and the Marin IJ

"Oxford was, without hesitation, the most exciting adventure of my life so far...My favorite guest speaker was David Benedictus. I learned from him to think outside the box in a way no one else has ever explained it. What I liked about my classes were all the compassion and drive lead by the students. When people are eager to learn, others are eager to teach...This was the opportunity of a LIFETIME...My friends were from everywhere...Connecticut, New York, California, Florida, Georgia, New Orleans, Chicago, Tennessee, D.C., India, Singapore, Brazil, Hong Kong, France...Future eighth grade graduates who are given this opportunity, go, you won't regret it!"  - Remy, Bayside MLK graduate

"I am very grateful to the donors because they made this trip possible for me...My favorite part of the trip was going to the Holocaust Museum because I really wanted to learn more...I liked this trip because I got to meet a lot of new kids from different states and made some new friends." - Caroline, 8th grade
