School Reviews

After being part of Oakbrook for over 7 years, our family couldn''t be more pleased with the educational experience at Oakbrook. The Character, ethics and leadership at school reinforces what our children are taught at home. The ability and encouragement to pray at school with others of different Christian denominations is a welcomed change to their former school. Our soon to be graduate is finding that colleges are recruiting him to be a part of their school not only because of academics, but because of the leadership and independence nourished by Oakbrook. We would recommend Oakbrook to any family looking to have their child in a safe, loving environment while preparing them for college.

My children have thrived at Oakbrook. They started in K5 and 1st grade and struggled with the accelerated curriculum at first, but through the supportive atmosphere throughout the school my children are thriving today. I often think that if my children were in a larger school where teachers did not have time to nurture them, they would be considered normal or average and due to the wonderful combination of acceleration and support, they are ahead of their peers in public schools. I am so grateful for Oakbrook. The school has changed my children''s lives.

My grandchildren have been attending this school for four (4) years and I am amazed at the educational level of 2d & 4th graders. The children attending this school are a step ahead of education and social skills. I pray GOD will continually Bless this school and all administrators and students as well as former graduates. I thank GOD my grandchildren attend such a fine school. - Posted by Proud Grandparent
