As a former parent that sent both of my children here, I can attest to the fantastic education that they received. They both went on to public high school and were tops in their class. While here, they participated in sports with other small schools in the San Diego area and sang in the musical programs that were available. Discipline is not a problem here as you have in larger public schools. Parents are encouraged to participate in the educational process. A great well-rounded education is available.
This school is considered a mission of the church tht supports it. As parents, we are to 'raise our children in the way they should go'. SOTH helps parents accomplish this goal. In addition to the basics (Reading, Writing and Arithmetic), the children learn daily Bible verses and hymns. The children learn music, art, and drama. They are also encouraged to join in the sports teams that include volleyball, flag football, basketball, softball and track (as a minimum). You will not find this level of education at any of the surrounding public schools.
