Oak Crest Private School 4

Good school with lots of personal attention. Strong focus on early literacy and most kids there love to read.

My son loves his school, his teachers, and his friends at Oak Crest. He has completed 1 1/2 years worth of traditional school work in just one year. The one-on-one attention, coupled with the ability to move at the student's pace is highly effective for the children who attend Oak Crest. We couldn't be happier with this school.

Teacher effectiveness: Very effective

Oak Crest teachers are effective for 2 reasons, they are exceptionally bright and they sincerely care about all the students. They all call my son by name to greet him, will stop and help him do whatever is needed and have each taken the time to get to know him personally - even the ones that are not his official teachers.

Amount of homework: Just right

The homework is never "new" material, it is a review of what was learned in class. And tutoring is part of the after school program so if your child stays after school, their homework is done!

There is only 1 passing grade at Oak Crest, 100%. Masterly of the material is the only objective and the only acceptable outcome so students MUST persist or they will not make it at Oak Crest. That sounds 'harsh' or 'heavy' until you see what a difference it makes in a child. My son went from a tentative learner that was discouraged by mistakes to a kid that gets more and more determined with his mistakes because he knows the material and he is not guessing if he is right or wrong. He is a confident, capable learner that is motivated to do his best work every day.

Absolutely! Bad behavior and disrespect are not tolerated by the students, the staff or the parents. If your child has behavior "issues", this is not the school for them.

Develops empathy: Strongly agree

Empathy is a vastly overlooked quality in today's kids. But not at Oak Crest. Empathy requires kids to care about others, help others and think about the consequences of their actions. Oak Crest focuses on individual students in its teaching - making learning meaningful for the student, helping the child learn and fostering a larger world view in each student. The students, in turn, not only see empathy from their teachers, they learn to "feel" the strength of support from their teachers and "feel" the energy that comes from acceptance by their classmates. Empathy, compassion, caring and a deep love of self and others are natural consequences of such a rich, powerful learning environment.

Oak Crest actually teaches ethics, responsibility and other age-appropriate core values to their students. The small class size, personal attention and rigorous curriculum demand (and mold) students of strong character, self-control and good manners. These students are confident, polite and responsible - in a world where far too many are not.


Oak Crest Private School 5

My bright, well behaved son has found a school he loves! He is surrounded by similarly smart, mature kids and a host of teachers that work really hard to make sure every child is fully engaged in learning every single day. I was worried that "self-paced" would not work for my son but I was 100% wrong...he is now highly motivated and wants to learn more and do more than I ever thought possible. He just finished what public school calls 1st grade and he can read anything we give him, from newspapers to popular magazines, and he loves reading. His ability to do math is even more impressive. The Oak Crest curriculum makes sure he really understands numbers and their relationships so he is doing 3rd grade math and wants to be a "math expert" when he grows up. His teachers support him, his classmates encourage him and he is really thriving in an environment that caters to exceptional learners. What a relief to find a school that really believes in teaching and cares (deeply) about every student!

"Where very young children learn to read" They aren't kidding. My 4-year-old has read, completed and passed tests on 25 school books and is now starting to read her own bedtime stories at night! Admittedly, we're talking "Cat in the Hat" and "Green Eggs and Ham" but this is all happening before she would have even started kindergarten in public school! (And I've not met many kindergartners who are reading even Dr. Seuss.) I'm impressed. Thank you, Oak Crest.
