I lover Towering Oaks because my kids love it there. Every time I go into the school, I am welcomed. I am a part of my kids lives in school. I get to help whenever needed. The teachers are the best. I love everyone of them and it's like a big family. Our principal is wonderful and involved with the students. You would never be able to find a better school than Towering Oaks Christian School. Our school rocks!

Great school with caring teachers and small classes. My boys have excelled there and have performed extrememly well on their Sanford Achievement tests. From talking with parents and friends of public school children, my sons are significantly beyond theirs as far as skills mastered and content covered. More importantly, they are nurtured spiritually and taught from a Christian World View with Christian curricula that acknowledge God as our Creator. School is very open to parent involvement and views school's role in a Biblical way as 'coming alongside parents in training up their children in the way they should go.' Great choice for parents who want their children to receive an academically challenging and God-filled education.

Towering Oaks is one of a kind. There is not another school in Greene County that can even come close to the foundation that this school puts under their students. The bible is first and foremost with every teacher and the students know this from the start. My children grow in the Lord every day and their knowledge is unmistakable. I have been at this school for 13 years, have a child that has graduated 8th grade an is now in high school and I have other children in T.O. now and I have never regreted on penny I have paid for their education. The teachers are so great, I cant even put it in words. When I walk in that school, I am not a stranger, I am part of the school family who is welcome at any time. The school is highly recommended.

TOCS is a wonderful Christian learning environment. The teachers are caring, nurturing, and will go the extra mile to take care of the children. The academic program is strong and my children continue to excel. Their knowledge of the Bible has expanded beyond what they learn at home and at church, as well has their understanding of it. The small class sizes promote comradery amongst the children. Parent involvement is strong and encouraged by the staff. The parents feel as though they are part of the program rather than outsiders just dropping children off at daycare. Overall, it is a wonderful, Christian program which I highly recommend. It is worth every cent.

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.
