This is a safe place to share your honest opinions of a school, whether good or bad.
No school is perfect because people are not perfect. There is very little bullying at Open Door and the staff take behavior and more importantly the heart issues that drive behavior very serious. I feel my children are very safe at this school.
Yes! Our son needed support in elementary school. The teachers, intervention specials, and principal made a plan to help him with our input and it worked. He is now a straight A student, testing well on standardized tests and involved with his peers and activities.
I am currently a junior at Open Door this year and this school has shaped me into what I am today. I have been given so many opportunities to develop my skills and talents and become a well rounded student. I am involved in many extracurricular activities and the size of the school helps me participate in as many things as I can. Soccer, cheer leading, musicals, student council, band, choir, and hand bells are some of the many activities I have learned to love here. Secondly, the loving community of the school as a whole has helped me in my spiritual and academic path. The teachers truly care about me and my success, and will bend over backwards to make sure I understand and excel in every topic covered. I have made life long relationships and the overall atmosphere that there will always be someone at school to ask me how I am doing is so important to me. Each and every day there is someone who cares to answer my questions and work with me so I can reach my fullest potential. As I a student I couldn't be more grateful for the journey this school has provided me with and I hope that many more students will enjoy the benefits of this school in the years to come.
We have found the homework to be rigorous but not too much. We have appreciated the flexibility teacher have given to our kids when appropriate...still holding them accountable but understanding that sometimes life can be bigger than homework.
I love this school! It has been such a blessing to my family and my children are well educated are are well-prepared for college and life. There are many extra-curricular activities to try. The staff and teachers are absolutely the best part. One of our students struggled with academics for a time and I was amazed with how well the staff responded to help him. Is more then succeeding now.
You can get away with anything. There's no high school principal. The elementary principal just sends you to the Dean of something-or-other who is rarely there and overwhelmed. Stealing is rampant, too.
Nope. Well, let me rephrase. They will give your kid tons of stuff to do for extra credit or let them re-try a whole bunch of times so they get their grade up. This way, their scores look good for stats and all that.
Leadership at this school is a joke. The head of schools puts on a good show, loves to make videos and talk your ear off at functions, but sit down and chat with him about real school issues and you'll get nothing but the run-around. Listen for real answers. You won't get any.
They try hard to do this and it works for those that come from a true Christian home. Unfortunately, they are allowing more and more students in that do not seem to come from a Christian background. I agree we need to reach out to those, be disciples, but I am not so sure that bringing them into the school is the right place to do it. If children are Christians and come from a Christian home, yes. But save the true disciplining for another time and place. Children need to have a save, stress-free place to learn and that is why I send my child to private school.
