Essential to the Oxbow experience is the presence of compassionate adults—as artists, teachers, mentors, and advisors—in every aspect of the life of the students and the School. Oxbow faculty members are passionate about sharing the excitement of inquiry-based learning and personal growth with students. Their firm commitment to developmental concepts such as self-reliance, individual responsibility, resourcefulness, and self-reflection, leads students to the development of the skills and habits of mind that build to life-long learning.
