My child attended Oakwood Academy from the 8th to the 12th grade. Oakwood was a blessing for my child. I don't agree that the teachers just passed the students. The teachers understood that the students responded differently and was very responsive to my childs needs. Also during the time my child was there all the students did not pass to the next grade level, however, the teachers did do what the could to work with the children. My child gained a lot of value lessons from Oakwood not only spiritual but also becoming a production student and individual. He is now attending College where I hope he will continue to grow spiritual and educationally.

I agree with the person that posted on August 29, 2007. I attended Oakwood most of my life and it was one of the worst experiences i have every had. The only positive thing was not worrying about what to wear. You dont learn at all in the school, everyone passes. The way the school is ran is crazy. They never stick to any of the rules, and the new principle is only there for the money. She doesn't care about the students.

Oakwood did hardly anything for my child. The only benefit that came from there is that my child wasnt so worried about what she was going to wear, because they has uniforms.

This school is a great learning experience for Christians because they have a bible class and teach you more about Jesus.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
