I have had the best experience with this school and the staff. My child is attending Oneida and has benefited greatly from the independence, she is learning that being accountable for her actions and responsible for her words are hard work, but very rewarding. The work and sport program is a fantastic skill building tool for my, otherwise, spoiled child. This school has been a blessing for me and my family.

I was a former student of Oneida and my experience there was not at all pleasant. I was sent there AGAINST MY WILL, plucked out of my school with no notice, didn't even get a chance to say goodbye to my friends, all because my stepfather wanted me gone from his life. I was in the 9th grade, placed in a dorm room with 3 other boys, all with previous police records, one of them was 20 yrs old! I was forbidden to speak in my room without the older boys' consent or I would get smacked. I joined the swim team to escape having to clean or work the farm but was always last to eat dinner because practice went late and oftentimes missed out on the full buffet. The teachers were ok I suppose, no real memory of anything "horrific". However, one week before Xmas break 2 older boys that were 2 rooms down from mine, pulled me in their room and sodomized me. I was too embarrassed to report it right away but when I went home for Xmas, I ran away to live with my aunt and never went back. This experience has haunted me my entire adult life. Looking back on it, I don't think the supervision level was where it needed to be. And why were there other boys living there over the age of 18yrs? Take heed...

Excellent Christian school. I attended school here in the 80's and now my daughter attends here. I disagree with most of the comments on here. There is a work program here, as well as academics and Christian education. The teachers here make $6,000.00 per year so yes they are here for a reason other than money. I believe that every child should contribute (job) to where they live. I love this school with all my heart and feel blessed to have had this experience and proud for my daughter to share this experience with me. She also loves the school and will graduate (as did I) from here.

It looks like some students are being cohearsed into giving false review of this institution turned into marine barracks. It is not a school for the wayward children, but that's how it seems like. Otherwise, no discipline would be impose on the children that would be militating against their purpose of being there (ACADEMICS). I think something has to be done to the way disciplinary administration is imposed. How can anyone justify slamming suspensions to children and not making anything up for the lapses in learning that is impacted negatively by this. Parents worry and expectation and hope dashed everyday with "D"s and "F"s in their child's report. For example, my child was rendered help only once throughout the first and second qtr. WHY? Do you want to tell me my child's interest is utmost as promised when I visit the school? No, I don't think so. My child must leave the "Barracks". I want my child in a real christian school environment, and not this military barrack.

The school is one o the oldest, and I believe nobody can take away that glory. However, there seems to be no way to measure up the academic lapses with disciplinary actions in this community. Accommodations seems to be one way only. Because the school is not taking tuition doesn't mean children academic line has to suffer in the "working". As a parent, I like imposing work hours or any form of discipline, but IF IT IS TO THE DETRIMENT OF THE ACADEMIC STATUS, THEN IT DOES NOT WORTH IT. I will probably take this to a very high level for people to see the way "Work" is being slammed on the kids, especially the new comers who who is just learning the experience of being away from home. There is a disconnect between the teachers report and the out-of-class-work hours. My child report is 50% "F,s", and never like that in his 5th grade. He was above average, and even above grd level in many cases. I am also pulling out my child and wait for him to mature more. THIS SCHOOL IS NOT THE BEST FOR SUCH AN AGE, I WOULD ADVICE SOMETHING LIKE A NINTH OR TENTH GRADE LEVEL.

OBI is a wonderful school. Safety is of the utmost importance and will always be. There are so many ways to learn and grow into who God wants you to be. I attended and still have many friends that I speak with on a daily basis. They are very structured as far as schedules are concerned and many of the children need and desire such a structured environment. Education reaches far beyond that of text books and chalk boards, but caters to the entire person... body, mind and spirit. This is a wonderful place with many wonderful people that continue to bless long after graduation!

My name is Danielle and I acutally went to OBI for eight months of my senior year and fell inlove with the school. The fact that parents are saying that the school doesn't have the best interest in your child is not true! The people at that school who work there receive under $6,000 dollars a year and consider it a mission feild! Don't care? Oh- I beleive they care very much so. Puritan views? What puritan views....ummm- if you think OBI is puritan than the college I am going to is a concentration camp because the college I am going to is by FAR way more strict than OBI. OBI is a place where kids learn how to grow up. The fondest memories of mine are at OBI and I want to thank them for doing what they do- I really miss the place...and the friends.

This school creates an atmosphere that is very hostile toward all non-conformity in reguards to their unnecessary, narrow puritain views. The teachers are great, but the school as a whole is terrible.

well my brother has recently joined the school and he seem to be doing good or has improved his grades, He is actuaaly an international student and i am proud of what he is able to accomplish in such a short time. He seem to have adapted well to the school environment although it is his first time living away in a foriegn land. I would appreciate if there is a way for those families to see the scores of the kids in an easy way or if u could email it to us directly. other than that thank u for what u do

I am not a parent either. But I graduated from Oneida Baptist and I can say it is a place where you make friends forever. At times it can be a hard place to live because you are around everybody all the time. But I miss it very much now that I am gone. If you want a place where your child can have a good christian atomsphere, a lot of discipline and feel loved and not alone. This is the place for them! Check it out!

I feel Onedia Baptisit Institute (OBI as it is know by the children of that school) is a school to aviod. They do not have the safety or the best interest for your child.
