We love Oak Arbor School! Our children are thriving under the thoughtful care of the teachers. They are being challenged academically, but mostly they are building confidence and being fed on a moral and spiritual level.

As an alumni of Oak Arbor school I can honestly say how wondeful it was going there. The teachers all care about each student and their education, they create an atmosphere where i felt comfortable to share and learn. I'm so glad I went to Oak Arbor for many reasons, the trips, oppurtunities, and experiences helped open my eyes to the many possibilities of what I want to do with my life. It set me on the right track going into high school academically and socially.

I m an alumnus of Oak Arbor School, having attended from Grade 5 to Grade 8. The experience I had there was very influential in building a strong foundation for my higher education. Not only can I see now how much Oak Arbor School helped me to be a stronger student and an individual person, but even as a current student I enjoyed every moment there. The teachers really cared about my welfare as a growing child and as a student, and I loved the small class sizes that allowed me to build good friendships and have more attention from teachers. I m happy I was pushed to work hard, but at the same time encouraged in a way that was not overwhelming. I m grateful for the confidence in public speaking that Oak Arbor taught me, and I felt well prepared transitioning from Oak Arbor School to the Rochester Community School system.

The Oak Arbor Church School is a wonderful school. The teachers and staff strive to provide an atmosphere where innocence is protected. In an effort to educate the whole child the teachers are in regular contact with the parents and encourage parent involvement in the school and support from the home. While giving a firm background in math and science, the teachers and staff take the time to really get to know each child and nurture each child's God given talents.

They strive to preserve the innocence of the child and to teach the whole child and not just a part of the child. They excel in fine arts education.

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.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
