On Saturday, March 10, from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m., Oakland Meadow School will honor its 40 years of existence. The anniversary program will celebrate the school’s rich history while also allowing visitors to reminisce with former colleagues and tour the state-of-the-art facility.
Oakland Meadow School provides diverse instructional programs for special education students. The school provides both site-based and outreach-itinerant services that meet some very unique instructional needs of Gwinnett County Public Schools students. The vision of Oakland Meadow School is that each student will have the opportunity to acquire the knowledge and skills to reach his or her highest potential. In providing these opportunities, the school also assists students in achieving important goals.
Oakland Meadow was built in 1977 and opened in January of 1978 as Oakland Center, located at 950 McElvaney Lane. In August of 2007, Oakland moved to its new location— 590 Old Snellville Highway in Lawrenceville— with a new name Oakland Meadow School.
