Staff members are easy to talk to and communicative. We look forward to our monthly reviews:)

Teacher effectiveness: Very effective

The teachers are in a support role and are very effective in that role. It is important to keep in mind that with this program, the parent is responsible for all of the teaching and hiring of outside tutors if necessary.

Amount of homework: Just right

This is a homeschool program and as such does not give "homework", rather, daily lessons. You cannot compare homeschooling to public or private schools. That said, the amount of work this school assigns is just right:)

Develops grit: Strongly agree

Yes, this school develops persistence, grit and determination, as does the students' parents. Homeschoolers have time to develop skills that happen outside of school as well.

Develops respect: Strongly agree

As homeschoolers and parents, we are responsible for developing respect in our own children.....there is no better way:)


Oak Meadow School
Develops empathy: Strongly agree

As homeschoolers, you the parent can develop compassion, caring and empathy in your child, rather than outsourcing that most important of jobs.

As homeschoolers, we are able to instill OUR values on our children, not somebody else's.

This school uses Saxon Math at the high school level......by far the best math program around. It is a homeschool program. When you homeschool, the teacher support is really just for the accredited transcript and guidance. You, the parent are the child's primary teacher. Thus, this is not a school, but rather an independent learning program. The curriculum k-8 is creative and parent intensive. At the high school level, it becomes more challenging and independent of the parent. My child's ITBS scores shot through the roof when I started homeschooling. You can't beat it:)

terrible. not worth the money. disrespectful staff. poor leadership. Great schools just gave a message to write more... therefore, this is a terrible waste of money for a copycat curricula. Stern Center evaluation revealed my child was waaaay deficient as a result of this "school".

It's homeschooling, not a neighborhood school. Check their completion rate. The number of students is self reported. Other places it lists 600 students.
