Health and fitness is a major focus in the Oak Park Unified School District. All of the district's schools were recognized at the bronze level by the USDA HealthierUS School Challenge, all schools participate in Farm to School, and the district has a wellness council comprised of teachers, parents, children's nutritionists, and health professionals. Oak Park Unified participates in fitness activities such as jog-a-thons and Hoops for Heart. An elementary school garden and greenhouse benefits a local free clinic. Students take the foods grown at school to the clinic and explain to diabetes patients how to grow healthy foods.
