Posted December 7, 2007

Our son has gone to Bending Oaks for three years now. It is a much better classroom situation for him than at a traditional school where he was sitting in the back of the classroom and 'tuning out' the teachers. He can't do that here. It has been a God send for us. However, the main drawback I see is that they are maybe a little too lax with dicipline and I don't feel Bending Oaks prepares them very well for college with the very small amount of homework that is given. It is a double edged sword - our son will graduate with good grades, but may not be prepared for what he may find in college.

My son has attended Bending Oaks since the beginning of the 2007 school year. He previously hated school and was certainly not a model student. Having now spent 12 weeks at Bending Oaks he enjoys going to school, is applying himself to his work during class and his behavior is, overall, reflecting a complete change of attitude to school. From a parents perspective I was concerned about the lack of homework that is given, however, the small sizes of the classes equate to fairly intense learning and my son utilizes his free time before school and during breaks to manage any homework that is given. It is a small community which means all the teachers are aware of each student's strengths and weaknesses and they manage my son well. I am very happy with Bending Oaks High School.

As our son tells us, Bending Oaks 'is the best school in the whole world.' Everything about the school works for him. He is getting a better education than he was receiving in the public school. The smaller class size and school atmosphere make it work for him. We get to visit with each one of his teachers in person every six weeks. The administrator is always available to speak with us when we call. We are so glad we found Bending Oaks High School!

I sent my son at Bending Oaks and his progress has not improved. I had to complain to the Administrator about certain teachers. My son also complained about the students at Bending Oaks. I addressed the problem with the administrator and nothing was done for 4 months. The bottom line was I spent $13,000 dollars and at the end of the school year. I decided not to enroll him at Bending Oaks again.

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.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
