Our son attended OCS for 8 years. The OCS administration listened to & implemented constructive feedback from parents. We moved out of state, & our son attends a public Jr. High school. We had peace about this transition because he had a great foundation from OCS. He continues to excel academically. If you want a sound Christian education for your child then look no further! Current & former OCS teachers, admin thank you for your service, dedication, and for caring for every student. Let s all be wise with our words, use them to build each other up not tear each other down. People can tame all kinds of animals, birds, reptiles, fish, but no one can tame the tongue. It is restless and evil, full of deadly poison. Sometimes it praises our Lord and Father, and sometimes it curses those who have been made in the image of God. James 3:7-9
I enjoyed teaching at OCS during the 2008-2009 school year. I am no longer there due to moving back to Florida to be close to my family. It was a priveledge to be part of a staff and administration that is truly committed to teaching God's word along with a challenging curriculum. I was amazed at how advanced many of the students were that were placed in my classroom at the beginning of the school year. OCS is dedicated to God and the success of their students.
What is it you are looking for in a Christian School? I personally had the privilege of knowing the staff and found them to honestly be seeking first the kingdom of God. I always had confidence that my children were in a loving and safe environment. They loved attending OCS. I KNEW THEY CARED. There need to be more Christian schools like OCS who embrace each child and work with them individually believing in seeing them reach their highest potential. Thank you!
I consider it an honor to have been a teacher at Olathe Christian School for many years. If you are looking for at Christian schools, OCS is, I believe, one of the best educational values in the Metro area. First and foremost, it is a place where each student is accepted, valued, and encouraged to reach his/her God-given potential. OCS provides excellent character and academic training all from a Christian world view in a safe, family-like setting. You can be assured that OCS will aptly prepare your child for higher education at a college or university as attested to annually by its graduates. OCS strives to assist parents in educating their children. Consequently, as the school reinforces the Christian values and beliefs taught in your home, you will see your child maturing spiritually, emotionally, and intellectually and can be confident that he/she will be prepared to meet the challenges of the future.
My daughter has been a student at Olathe Christian School for 4 years and has loved every day she has been there. Each year she has grown in the Lord and has excelled academically. I am very shocked to see such negative and hurtful reviews about OCS and am left to assume they are from a disgruntled employee or family. No school is perfect but this school has been a blessing to my child and my family for years. The Wilson family is a loving, dedicated, Spirit filled family who is being true to the calling God has placed on their heart for children and their education. You can be confident your child will spend their school days in a safe and Godly atmosphere learning from top notch teachers. My daughter has scored very high on all her standardized testing at OCS. We are thankful for OCS and the school's vision.
When we prepared to move to Olathe in 2004 a factor for us was finding a Christian school for our soon to be kindergartner. It is now six years later and we have not been disappointed with OCS. We now have two kids attending and continue to give thanks for the opportunity to send them where they are taught from a Biblical point of view. OCS is providing an excellent education in a loving and moral environment. The teachers and staff genuinely care for the kids as we have watched them give and sacrifice so much to help the kids grow and to keep OCS an affordable option for families who value it. We have witnessed God's answer to problems and prayers and look forward to watching His plan unfold for OCS in the future. We are grateful to be a part of OCS.
I have been a part of OCS for now three years. I have enjoyed teaching with an amazing group of teachers, parents, and children. The school puts a great deal of emphasis on teaching God's word. It is an honor to be apart of God's family at OCS. The school is a wonderful school to be apart of and we are blessed to have the best families! As a teacher, I know that we pray for our students and we know that God is doing amazing work at OCS. We hold high academic standards, but most important we want our students to have a deeper relationship with Christ.
I am a former student of OCS and the time I spent there was bearable. For the most part, the teachers I thoroughly enjoyed. I can recall one of my teachers who hindered me academically because of his lack of knowledge. The atmosphere was fake. Some genuinely had godly attitudes, but those who didn't ruined it for many others. Regarding the administration, it was fake as well. They contradict themselves much of the time and show too much favoritism toward their children. One of the main things I couldn't tolerate was we were told we would have a gym the 2006 season. I began realizing how tuition was steadily rising and individual classes were costing more than they originally had asked for.Soon we found out that we were paying for the coming of a new building with brand new facilities. To this day, there is still no new building. OCS had.the.potential.to.go.higher.places.,.but.due.to.the.administration.dragging.them.down.,.it.won't.flourish.much.longer.
Such a terrible school. So disappointed by everything, most of all the leadership. Please, listen to all of the recent reviews. This is not a school you want your children to attend. I realize how difficult it is to find a god-loving/fearing school, but this is not it. Please take my word and move your children elsewhere.
I am saddened by the recent posts of negative remarks. My four children have attended OCS for 5 years and I am proud to call OCS our home. I have never seen favortism, in fact, there has been a couple times that I witnessed more stict expectations to a staff's son. We thank the Lord that He gave Roy and Laura Wilson a desire to start OCS. All my children are counting down the days till school starts.
The school was at one time a school that I was proud to say my children attended. However, over the past three years the administration has added more family member to their administrative staff. Unfortunately, they do not always put the needs of their students first, there is blatant favoritism shown to staff kids. While our children have been fortunate to have been taught by some great teachers, those teachers never stay more than a year or two some have even left abruptly mid-year. Sadly, after more than six years at OCS our children will not be returning.
I have been a teacher at Olathe Christian School for 9 years. I absolutely believe the teachers love the Lord and there is an excellent atmosphere present. The students know they are loved unconditionally by their teachers and administration. Academically, the elementary grades are top-notch. They continually score high on their CAT tests as well as on other testing measures. I feel blessed to teach at O.C.S.
This school could have been really great. The academic program is ABEKA, which is good for kids. The director of the Early Childhood Learning Center tries very hard to make each kid comfortable and happy. However, the administration is bringing it to its knees. If you value your children's education, do NOT send them there.
This school may have once been a good place to send your kids but no more. Too many teachers are leaving because of poor management. My children learned a lot but the school couldn't keep the billing records straight and told us certain teachers would be returning when they knew the would not be including the pre-k director. The education was good but management was shoddy at best.
It is awesome to be able to send your kids every day to a school you know they hearing the Word of God. This is more important to me than anything else they can learn. The scriptures my children have learned while attending is unbelievable. The teachers truly love them and want them to do well. They are also able to play in competative sports starting in the 5th grade. This is very important to my husband. I would never consider having my children any where else. It is obvious God is moving there and getting ready to great things.
My four children have attended OCS the past two years. We are honored to be part of community where Christ is honored and teachers geniunely care about each student. It's not uncommon to see a senior give a first grader a 'high five'. And i was blessed to sit in on chapels where students are worshipping our Savior with their whole heart. Yes, the academics are excellent, but i'm more impressed with the loving Christian atmosphere. My children love attending OCS.
Very impressed with the academics as well as the loving christian atmosphere.
We LOVE OCS! My kids can't wait to get there in the morning. The teachers and staff really love the kids. My kids continually excel in all of their school subjects. The small classroom size and very talented teachers make for a great combination. We definitely recommend this school to everyone!
I believe Olathe Christian School successfully teaches children and young adults to strive for an enriched life in Christ.
