Green Oaks School is such a blessing to students, families, and staff. Praise God for the new school building and all the things He is doing for GOS!

This school has also saved my daughter from a world of hurt in public school. We had several not so good years in the public school system and found GOS, what a blessing! The entire staff is absolutely wonderful. My daughter now looks forward to going to school every day! What a joy! One happy mom in Bedford.

This school saved my child from a world of hurt in the public schools. Thank God for Green Oaks School. For our child with DS, it's the best education we could have ever hoped for.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

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.
