Last year I enrolled my children into 3rd and 5th grade. My 3rd grader loved her teacher, they were very caring and nice and she said there were no bullies and she had tons of friends plus all the staff are nice which is also a plus. She said chapel was a great time and she loved praising the Lord there. They taught her Godly values and it was simply amazing! However, my 5th grade student came home everyday tired and sad. I asked what was going on he said his teacher hated him I tried contacting the principal some things were dealt with but after a while of peace his teacher was throwing away his papers and giving him 0s! He reported that she had class pets and anyone else she would immediately disregard their problems and that she would tell the other teachers and principal bad and untrue things about him such as he was fighting other people, flipping her off, and cursing!!! He also got bullied on a constant basis by the students who would throw erasers at him in art class and no teachers cared enough to discipline the 4 kids who started it!!! I still put him in 6th grade though. His new teacher is amazingly nice but sadly that 5th grade joke of a teacher is still teaching... -SM

My children began attending this school as a 4th, 2nd and 1st grader. I was hesitant to enroll them as most other private schools already has waiting lists. I can honestly say without a doubt, this school is wonderful. The principal, Nancy Campbell is amazing and a very active and hard working principal. The teachers are caring and very involved with the students. Coming from another well known private school in the permain basin, I would say this is school was worth the risk in leaving our previous school. The education and teaching curriculum is outstanding. The principal and teachers are always open to any new ideas.

Odessa Christian School has been such a blessing to our lives! We were very hesitant at first but my children have grown leaps and bounds not only in education but in their faith. My prayer is that by the time my children are ready to enter the 7th grade, that God will open a door for OCS and allow them to take on secondary education. Yes, the cost is high and the amount of fundraisers are a bit overwhelming, but what price can you put on your childs education? Our family thinks the negative far out way the positive and we are eager to watch our children blossom at OCS and in life thanks to the wonderful christian leadership they are receiving.

Odessa Christian does a good job of preparing the students for higher education with a priority of being good citizens and Godly people.

Personally, I believe that OCS is the right choice for my child. She has learned to read, to write in cursive, and to do math. I like the program that they use. Above all, she has learned about God, which seems to be a strict no-no in public schools. The teachers are strict when they need to be, and they show the children that they are loved as well. Yes, OCS is costly, but well worth it!! However, they do have too many fundraisers that parents have to participate. As far as the principal, Mrs. Woods, she does a wonderful job, and I believe her to be fair and just with all parents and students. All in all, Odessa Christian School is the only school that I want my child to attend. Gaye Carroll

The Abeka program is awesome, however the teachers lack the skills to teach it. The teachers are retired people who seem tired all the time. The teacher lack the passion it takes to teach the younger children. Ms. Green in pre-school is an exception to the rule, she really loves the kids and gives it all she's got! I love the chapel time in the morning, it puts God on the forefront.

Not worth the money. There are better public schools in the area. Most of the work being done is through workbooks that can be purchased and done at home.

Odessa Christian is WELL worth the money. I never dreamed that my Kindergartener would be writing cursive and reading books at such a young age. I love the one on one time that she gets with her teacher. Yes, it is costly, but it definitely beats going to a public school and the best part is that GOD is worked into the curriculum, whereas you wouldn't have that in a public school setting. Thanks OCS!!!

This is also my childrens' first year to attend Odessa Christian School. There are alot of hidden costs and the school could use a lot of improvement on the faculty. The supervision and discipline of the students is poor. Further, there is not much one-on-one teaching. I don't beleive I will be enrolling my children in this school for 2005, etc.

This is the first year my children have attended a private school, and frankly there are a lot of 'hidden' costs. Also, I thought there would be more of a one on one type of learning situation, but one teacher can not be one on one with 16 to 17 students in a class. I was afraid that people in private schools would be 'stuck up' and I am afraid that they have confirmed my fears. I am reconsidering the whole private school thing. I think my children would have been just as well in a public school.
