• About Oakdale Elementary

    Oakdale Elementary is a culturally, linguistically, and socioeconomically diverse school seated in the southwest corner of Oakdale, Minnesota near the headquarters of 3M. The school was originally built in 1967.  There have been a few additions since that time.  Most recently three additional classrooms and a Gymnasium were added in 2000.  This addition also allowed the school to remodel and enlarge the Media Center.
