Our daughter has been going to Ontario Christian since first grade (now in 5th). Ontario Christian has lived up to all that was promised and more. Academics are cutting edge with just the right balance of activities(music, band, art & Spanish). Their motto is Growing Christian Leaders, I think it should also say growing christian parents:) What I have witnessed in the past few years is my daughter truly becoming an example of Gods principals. Her love and knowledge of the Lord is such a testimony to her father and I. She often reminds us what the Lord requires of us! OC is an amazing school and we are blessed to be a part of it!!

I attended this school from 1st to 8th grade and am currently a senior at a public high school. OC was a place full of hypocrites; the students constantly berated others on their socioeconomic & racial status. And their minds were so constricted by what their parents & this school force-fed them; it's amazing how much I've grown as a young adult and a participant of society by leaving the school. In terms of my education, there is a clear disparity between this school, other private schools, and public schools. Although I was valedictorian, part of the GATE program, and a successful student at OC, my qualifications did not entirely carry on into high school because of the lack of preparation I received. And I cannot say this school is what "made me smart," rather it was how my parents and family raised me. The best thing I can say about OC is that it was the catalyst behind my desire to become a better person since the school provided examples of what NOT to be. If you want to burn your money, then send your child here. If you want to raise a close-minded child, please enroll them here. My friend and I both are extremely grateful for leaving OC as seen in her review.

This school forces religious values on students. Once I left Ontario Christian, my faith became more genuine.

My two children have attended OC for 4 years and I have been extremely happy with the education they are receiving. The well roundedness of the spubjects they are exposed to is what I am most impressed with. My kids have been exposed to weekly chapel, computers, art, music, library, bible, math, reading, language arts, PE, and began spanish in 2nd grade. Looking forward to choir and band in the upper grades, all while being taught Christian principles from Christ loving teahers! The class sizes are small and there are multiple classes per grade, making the size of the school a desirable one. To say the school is perfect in every way would be impossible, there are always a few kids who can misbehave and seem to antagonize kids (referring to previous comment about bullying), but this is reality, I can say there are much less of this than I would see at the local public school. Overall we are pleased we have chosen OC for our kids and look forward to continuing at this school through 12th grade!

I love this school! My daughter is finishing 7th grade and is doing well academically and spiritually. She does have a lot of homework, but manages quite well. She also plays in the band and has done so since 5th grade. I don't understand how others can say this school is a waste of money...I have compared my daughter's homework to some of my public school friends and she is doing the same level work but she is excelling. She enjoys Chapel and building her relationship with Christ. The teachers care very much and her self-confidence has blossomed this year. She has never been bullied or harassed and has friends that are very sweet. It is nice to get to know so many parents and everyone has always been friendly to us.

It is perplexing to hear so many discouraging remarks about OCC. My daugher began OCC at three years of age. She is not getting ready to graduate from kindergarten. My daughter is extremely bright and verbalizes words far beyond her five years of age. She is reading and has a good understanding of Phonics. My daugther is also adding and substracting. I agree with OCC motto of building strong christian leaders. My daughter quotes many Bible verses. She enjoys chapel and cries when she is not able to attend church on Sunday's. OCC is enforcing the spiritual and moral values that we are teaching my daughter at home. I do empathize with the student who states that she is/was being bullied. I believe that type of behavior should not occuror be tolerated in any school. I hope that the leadersof the school are looking into that matter seriously. I also hope that you have parents you feel you can confide in. Please do not give up on this school.

Ontario Christian is by far, the best Christian school in the area. I've noticed that most parents that send their kids here are very involved. The teachers are very approachable and in tune with all parts of the child - from academic to social. OC also offers many "extras" that the kids are invovled in like computers, art, music, PE, spanish, and library. Yes, the school is definitely an investment, but it's worth it.

Do not waste your money. Most people who send their children to OC, think they are getting their monies worth. Some actually know the education is lacking, but continue to waste their money.

Horrible education! Be a Christian example to your children, and save your money! Do not send your child to Ontario Christian!

What a great way to waste thousands of dollars. Almost like burning your money. This school is a waste of a learning experiece as you waste class time talking of nonsense, insufficient teaching, and useless homework. And you all know how their motto is growing "Christian" leaders. They do such a wonderful job of that as they let kids loose and do whatever they want such as bullying (big factor), fighting, harassment, cliches going on, you name it. Although, this is a "Christian" private school so you won't find drugs or gangs or weapons. But as a student, I see many disappointing flaws that it is not even funny. So if you looking for top sufficient ways to waste your precious money, then enroll your children into Ontario "Christian" Schools.

This school is a great school. I have no trouble getting ahold of the teachers if need be and they are very concerned about their students. The Christian outlook on teaching and discipline is awesome

My niece has been going to OCC since PreKindergarten. It has been a very, very expensive sacrifice for my sister and brother in Law, but well, well worth it. The atmosphere is distinctly Christian, they give them lots of homework, and the activities are adequate. I appreciate the wonderful foundation that OCC has laid for my niece, who is the love of my life. She will do very well, once she leaves OC, and she will...great school!! YOu have GOT to experience the Harvest Festival there; it is second to none!

This school is amazing. Compared to other schools that I have been involved in, this one is very organized, professional, and it's an overall excellent school. All the teachers are dedicated workers; they will do anything to help the student succeed. The middle school is awesome - high standards and great faculty. I would definitely recommend this school.

This school's standards of education are at the level of the lowest public schools, except it costs you a lot of money and wasted time for your children. The children never get any homework or anything to do after school. They have Computers once a week, and Art once every two weeks. According to what my children learned at their previous school, this school is very behind in all subjects.

I have never been involved with a school that cares so much for the students. Teachers and staff treat the kids and parents like an extension of there own family. Class sizes rarely get over 20 students through grade 6. You won't find that at many schools. I would not hesitate to recommend this school to anyone I meet.

I'm very disapointed with this school and it's staff. The communication between parent and teacher is poor. The class websites are hardly ever current making it impossible to monitor and assist your child in their assignments.

High parent involvement. Too many new inexperienced teachers. Many electives to choose from in 7th and 8th grade. Teachers easy to communicate with.

Great school however, school does not have resources for special needs for young children (i.e., speech, IEP, RSP).

Three of our children began attending Ontario Christian this year when we moved from another area. Our children are in K,4th and 8th grade. This school has a tough grading scale but christian, loving teachers helped with the transition. The elementary kids beginning in K have seperate art, music and computer teachers. We are very happy with the christian atmosphere and feel our children are in a wonderful new school.
