Children are our greatest assets. The investment we make today yields our future's return. Oakview Preparatory School of SDA makes me feel confident that I, my child and all those she will come in contact with will benefit from the investment made. The quality staff and administration produces a quality product - the students. Students are nurtured and challenged to excel in a safe, caring and progressive environment. There is a positive balance of fun, learning and spiritual development. Respect among and between both student and faculty is fostered and I highly recommend the school for its academic, cultural, social, physical and spiritual integrity. The tuition is also economical. The gains last a lifetime. I wish I knew about the school earlier.

I went to this school in 5th grade and it was awesome. I had to move to North Carolina so I had to stop attending there. To this day that is the best school I have ever went to, and I have not stayed at one school for more than 2 years. I am in 9th grade now, but I would like to thank Mr. Agard, and Ms. Elanko and the rest to the teachers there for teaching me. It is the best school and I really recommed that you send your child there. Also if Coach Tate is still their; make the team work like you worked us. (We won back to back state titles, I dont know what happened when I left)

Oakview Prep is a school that focuses on the newly defined basics: Reading (phonetic approach, comprehension), Writing (reports, story development), Arithmatic (basic concepts in relation to everyday usage) and Typing (1st Graders learn to type and use the computers at least 3x per week). I am very happy with my 1st Graders progress; he has learned to read in leaps and bounds, can navigate the Internet, understands advanced concepts like multiplication and division and has an excellent grasp of how his studies relate to his personal environment. Mrs. Cline is an excellent teacher. However, their arts program is limited but the parents support all efforts by the school to improve the quality of life.

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.
