OCS is a great school and a great Christ-centered community. Teachers expect strong academic effort from the children but they truly care about them as well. Very good prep for college and for the rest of their lives. Strong postive parental involvement in all aspects of the school. We feel very blessed to have found OCS!

We adore OCS. Our experience has exceeded our expectations. I love that the school focuses on whole person education from a biblical worldview. I love that one the first day of school we were invited to pray over my son's classroom and one of the things his precious teacher prayed for was for their individual giftings to be revealed. They truly care about each child. I love the community feel of the school, and yes, it does feel like a small town inside a big city. It's the best.

This school has a small town feel in a larger metropolis with teachers who teach from their heart and administrators who make decisions for the good of the whole. Additionally, our kids not only learn about the Bible, but see Christian values lives out daily. Truly blessed!

Although OCS has become a leader in academic excellence, the administrators don't rest on their past accomplishements. They are always looking for ways to improve the curriculum to better prepare our children for their future. The teachers are very dedicated and the size of the school provides an ideal environment for our kids to thrive both in their academics and their extra-curricular activities.

This school combines high academic standards, extra-curricular activities, community involvement and spiritual foundation and integration to produce a generation of students prepared not only academically but physically & spiritually.

There is also a mind set that each person is designed uniquely by God for a purpose and they challenge developing those gifts and pursuing passions.

I can always rest assured that my child is in an atmosphere at OCS that God would wholeheartedly approve of. What better peace could you have as a parent in regard to the school where your child is spending so much time and is being influence?

I agree, if you don't have the money, you will not fit in. My daughter has attended OCS for 3 years and is already dealing with kids 8 and 9 years old, that are materialistic and mean. We have decided to leave OCS, because we do not want our child raises with materialistic values. I know that we will see some of this in public schools, but by no means will it be the quantity that it is at OCS. The sad part is that these apples do not fall far from the trees, so what CHRISTIAN values are being taught in these homes, if 8 and 9 year olds are already materialistic and hurtful to those who are not as blessed!!!!! The sad fact is that it is not only the children that are this way, there are many parents that have these same values!

I am and have attended OCS since Pre-K and absolutely love it! It has been an incredible school not only academically and Biblically, but also socially. The people and students at this school are amazing and genuine. The classes are around 60 students or so and it is like a big family, everyone knows each other and everyone is extremely nice. You have a diverse group of people at the school now especially because of the foreign exchange program initiated this year. The sports programs are great and the arts programs are also well supported and respected, especially the theatre department. I would recommend this school to anyone and everyone. The tuition is reasonable, compared to other schools, and the school is now just starting to scratch the full potential it will be someday.

My daughter is beginning her 6th year at OCS. I am very thankful that we are able to send her to OCS. It is a sacrifice for our family and one that we think is very important. Although there are alot of families that are very wealthy, there are also alot of families that sacrifice so their children can have a Christian education. OCS is not perfect. Neither is any other school. I am thankful for the Godly friends that my daughter has made at OCS. The way I see it is if your child is drawn to kids that walk on the edge - they will be drawn to those kids whether they are in a private or public school. I think the need to fit in exists at every school just like it did when I was in high school 25 years ago.

OCS has very little classes to choose from. If you don't have tons of money, you aren't going to fit in. You have to have the latest iPods, the latest clothes, the latest purses, and it seems to me that everything must be designer... Maybe I'm a little bit biased because I have been forced to go there my whole life, but I think public school gives you the same quiality education (other than Bible classes) but without the stress of trying to fit in constantly. The school has very little diversity in money, race, and just people in general. I will not deny that the school has some WONDERFUL aspects to it, but there are also some that cannot be over looked. I would check out this school just to see if its right for you.

This school is a great place for your kids if you have the money, but if you don't have the finances to pay tuition plus buy them a brnad new car when they turn 16, and dress them in the newest brand name fashions you may find it dissapointing if you send your child here. It is definitly not worth the money, I attended OCS in high school and was sadly dissapointed by not only the students but also the faculty's double standards and materialism. I have many horror stories to support my opinions.

I attended OCS PreK-12 grade and it was one of the best experiences of my life! The teachers are involved in the students lives and see each student as an individual; there are a variety of extra-curricular activities as well. OCS produces a well rounded person not only academically but also spritually. The plethora of denominations opens your eyes to see the views of others and aids one in deciding what they truly believe.

OCS' focus is the total child - heart, mind, body, soul. Education is TOP, better than could be provided at public schools. Extra curricular activities involve all sports, debate, foreign language, computers, art, music, bands, multi-media and more. Teachers/parents have wonderful communication and involvement. We have 2 children attending and plan on the third when old enough. Look around at other Christian schools and you will know how impressive all aspects of OCS are upon visiting.
