I'm so bored I don't even know why I'm writing this. Please do not waste your time and money here it's not worth it. It may seem like a good school because of the Islamic environment but the kids that go there don't really act very Islamic and the teachers go overboard with teaching us about Islam e.g (this) is haram (though it's not really haram). The teachers are all very impatient and don't do much about bullying either. They yell at all the kids and they don't correct the bullies properly. Also since its a very small school you don't get to meet many different kinds of people and it makes high school very overwhelming. Not only do you not become aware of things socially but academically as well. Most of their teachers are quite behind in their subjects thus students do not receive a proper education making it a great waste of money. If you are planning on sending your kids here you might want to reconsider.
OCS is a great place to get a well-rounded education in both academics and spirituality.
I had a very bad experience the teachers are to mean all they do is give too much work and what do we get to do?pay $415 a month no more then that including all the bake sales and candy machines
The teachers are always willing to help and students care about each other.It`s a really good school,I know someone who was`nt even talking to the teachers on their first day,but now that person is extremely satisfied.OCS is just like any other great school but unique in its own way.
OCS is an absolutely amazing school. I attended school there from Pre-School all the way through to 8th grade. The teachers were, overall, awesome. They really cared about the students and, because of the small class sizes back in my day, they gave personal and individual attention to each student. I'm a junior in high school right now, but the friends I made at Orange Crescent School are still some of the closest friends I have. The bonds you develop there aren't easily broken. I absolutely recommend this school to any parent looking for a good school to enroll their kids at.
Two of my kids graduated from it, and today is the first day of my son in it. I tried all different schools, this is the BEST. Doesn't mean there is no need for improvements, but you can't tell how good it is till you try other schools out there. Together we can make it better.
i used to be parent for my graduate daughter, i loved orange crescent school
Everything maybe good. But their teachers are not involved with the students. They don't help them. They just give the mthe grade. and your grade is also includes 5 extra academic classes from regular schools. To earn a good GPA you need to have an A in all the classes. The teachers don't focus on learning with fun which can help the child to leearn. They are very strict.
Orange Crescent School has gone throught alot in the past years. But since the new principal, Nehad Ahmed, has come she has really put the school in 21st century. We have new computers, new modulers/classrooms, new playground, we have the new smartboard, we have many credential teachers. Their are OC science and engineering fairs, state speeling bee, OC academic pentathalon. This school has really progressed alot. It is a private Islamic school. There are security guards. It is gated. This school is the best schools and i really reccommend this school. This school has a full 6 year wasc accreditation. The parents are always their to help.
Orange Crescent School as gone through a lot of needed changes over the past 3 years. The OCS has added 2 new playgrounds, library, computer lab, and a new grass field. Recenty the school received a 6 year clear accredidation from WASC.
