In 2014, the Oakleigh Grammar School Science Wing underwent a total refurbishment to align facilities and learning resources with 21st century learning standards. The $880,000 upgrade was a necessary step in Oakleigh Grammar’s progress towards becoming a registered International Baccalaureate Organisation (IBO) World School.
Through the celebration and encouragement of cultural diversity amongst the School community, Oakleigh Grammar now has over 22 different cultural backgrounds represented in our student population.
