My children have been in many different programs,from Montessori to creative play,and this school is the best. The classes are small,and the teachers/staff are caring and professional. There is a wonderful sense of community and family that exists there, with very active parents, and the school staff, all focusing on the kids and what is best for them. We are not real religious people, and do not even attend church services there,yet there is not conflict with this or extra fees. In fact, the cost is very reasonable, and more affordable than other private schools of this high quality. The curriculum does not go into church doctrines, but does wonderfully cover Christian faith ideals and basic bible stories. This is an excellent school for any family seeking an excellent education, coupled with the teaching of values, community, and global stewardship through the lessons of Christ.

My son has attended Oak grove since K-3 he will be going into the 1st grade this year.Oak Grove is a great school with the best teachers. My child has matured so much and is excelling academically. The musicals the children present are fantastic they allow the children to shine on stage. I am so happy I found Oak Grove. Sincerely, Satisfied parent

I have been sending my daughter to Oak Grove since her Pre-school. This fall she will be starting first grade and I plan to put my second child in Oak Grove as well. My daughter has blossomed beautifully in this school and I feel strongly that this school is the right choice for my kids.

We are new at the school. I find Oak Grove to be very loving and very focused on education. My daughter can not wait to get home and read her reading book. I would highly recomend this school. It is also very affordable. The teachers and Principal are approachable and handle concerns promptly and professionally.

This is a wonderful school. Class sizes are small and parent participation is encouraged.

My son has attended this school since he was in preschool. I must admit that this year will be a sad year for me, when I have to transfer him to another school. The school only goes up to the 5th grade. The education my son is getting at this school is outstanding. The teachers take pride and care about the children's development and the school helps groom the children to be ready for the next grade. The class size is very small. The most students in a class at any given time is 16. The parents of the children that attend the school are caring and loving. I am confident that my son will be prepared to move on to Jr. High and do extremely well with any curriculum presented while continuing his education. I will miss Oak Grove and the Staff. I've established great freindships.

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.
