I attended this school for a few years. It started out amazing, then as I matured out of middle school it became highly . stifling? This school is for a very specific type of person, and if you do not fit in that mold you will not to well here. They do not do well with kids who are not in good family situations or basically are dealing with anything outside of the norm. In all honesty, I didn't really feel the love of Christ here besides in about 3 teachers. Does not handle questioners well.

This school is quality. Teachers are not part of greedy unions and don't make a lot so they WANT to be there. They care and expectations are high, unlike City schools. I saw a student post a bad review but I think the review was probably bogus. Administration does care about the families and work with families financially by offering scholarships and payment plans. A+!

Tree of Life is an excellent choice if your family is lucky enough to have one stay-at-home parent. Tree requires elementary children to be dropped off at 9:00 am and picked up at 3:30pm. Not an easy task if both parents work a 40-hour Monday-Friday 8:00 - 5:00 schedule. Tree is in DESPERATE need of before & after school care! That being said, the academics are adequate and the staff is caring. The biblical teaching is very good. However, the inflexible schedule and lack of before/after school care is a serious concern. Especially since the HIGH tuition cost typically requires both parents to work so they can afford to send their children to Tree.

I have 3 children that have been at Tree for the past 5 years. A 5th grader at the Dublin Branch, a child in Jr High and a High school student. It has been a fabulous experience for each of my children. Tree is a very diverse school with many opportunities for growth spiritually and academically. The school offers a very aggressive college prep curriculum if your child is so inclined. I find the price to be very reasonable for a private school. The staff has been very attentive and if we have ever encountered any concern they have been quick to address them. The leadership at tree from our superintendent and staff has been awesome.

I have had three children attend Tree two who graduated after 12 years and one son who is now a freshman at Northridge. The quality of the education compared to very good Public suburban schools like Upper Arlington (where we live and I went to UA schools), Worthington and Westerville is exceptional. If you are looking for a small class ration with caring teachers and staff in a christian atmosphere Tree is for you. The test scores for Tree of life students is among the best in the state, but more than that the emphasis on teaching how to live life and deal with life's ups and downs is something you will not find at too many other schools. The atmosphere is one of growth and love compared to the competitive nature of Public Schools. Come and visit and see for yourself.

Tree is awsome. The sports are great and the work is hard but fun. I love it. And the teachers are kind and caring, too.

The academic quality is low especially compared to other parochial schools. There are extracurricular activities available. However, the school is very difficult to work with - especially when withdrawing a student and charges an exorbitant withdrawal fee. For the cost of the education - one of the costliest in Columbus - a student would be far better served by any of the other parochial schools. Despite being a Christian school, the administration seems more motiviated by greed than anything.

My daughter is a graduate from Tree and loved every minute of her 12 years at Tree, would not have changed a thing! Teachers are not afraid to show love and support to each child, I was a non-working Mom and I was at school several times a week. I know what was gong on in the classrooms, it was all good.

Dublin branch -- bottom line is small class sizes. Branch has small expenses at Dublin location, so tuition is low. Covers salaries, etc. Tuition is low compared to other private schools and discounts for multiple children. Eliminated many fundraisers! No pressure to be involved strictly voluntary. Focus is on education first (college prep). Finally, have playground after raising money. Small classroom sizes means kids get extra attention. Teachers are dedicated and interested in children's success. Classrooms are controlled and orderly. Disobedient students are dealt with in a loving and fair manner. All my kids love Tree and look forward to going to school. Overall - Impressed with school. So far, average class size is 16 or less students per each grade.

We came to Tree 3 years ago and have enjoyed the experience. Tree keeps the class sizes small, but the education and service opportunities are excellent. My kids have many opportunities to make great memories. The staff has been very supportive to ensure a very good middle school and high school experience.

I took her out because, they are insensitive, non understanding of family things. Loves to argue with you. Dublin branch- no playground, kids play in the parking lot. They do not pay rent, any utilities, nothing at all, to the church. No understanding of what my money pays for, & always asking for money for something. School supplies list was not even right, just dumb things. All in all the teacher was wonderfull.
