    "My 7th grade child has been attending Open Door Christian Schools since Pre-School. The truth of God's word is integrated into all aspects of school programming from Pre-School through Grade 12. I am confident that our choice (and at times financial sacrifice) will impact my child's life forever; body, mind, and soul. I would also like to mention we reside in a community that has been scored A+ by the Ohio Department of Education. Open Door Christian Schools offers a safe environment where students and family flourish."

    "I've gone here all my life so I know how things are run. Most of the teachers are just okay, but some are really awful. There are people there who kiss up to the school and get whatever they want, like a picture of their child on the website. God does remain center, but the weekly chapel is sub par. The building is really starting to deteriorate and a large number of staff is related to each other, like being married to each other. Rules are lax and only certain people get punished for things. The system seems disorganized and highly inconsistent. There are better alternatives for education."

    "As a parent of a graduate as well as another student who have both attended Open Door since kindergarten, I have been extremely pleased with the high quality of education as well as the care and concern shown by the faculty and staff. I've been impressed with their concern about all aspects of my children's lives -- from academics to spiritual growth. They care about developing the whole person. We have been very involved with the athletic dept. and have been thankful for coaches who are committed to Christ and emphasize godliness on and off the court/field. I would highly recommend Open Door Christian Schools and am proud to be part of their school family."

    "We are blessed to have all of our children currently in this school & couldn't be more thrilled, not only with their academic progress, but more importantly for us, their spiritual growth! Our HS students were able to take "double math" their freshman year to give them an extra challenge, since they are gifted in this area. Our MS students have been blessed to have teachers who meet with them personally whenever they have questions or struggles in any area. Our elementary students are challenged and loved by teachers who are dedicated and determined to share God's word! Our students are encouraged to begin making their faith their own, from a biblical perspective, and I love that teachers keep us posted on what they are discussing in class, so we can continue these thoughtful discussions at home! Our sophomore son had a paid summer internship at a prominent local business (all other interns were college age!) & this would NOT have been possible without the opportunities he's been given to pursue his passion here at ODCS! We are so grateful that ODCS is helping our students grow spiritually, academically, artistically, athletically & in service ... no matter WHAT grade they are in!"

    "Open Door Christian Schools is a blessing to my children! The education is wonderful with advanced classes (my 7th grader is taking high school math) and special staff for tutoring for students that need it. The teachers love and care for my kids and pray with them. It is a safe place in a world that often scary. I feel the school truly partners with me and so many parents volunteer. My kids state tests scores are great and the school posts their ACT scores which are above the state and national level. As my husband and I look to guiding our children to college, we were impressed to learn that 95% of ODCS graduates go on to college and 88% of graduates are choosing 4-yr. colleges."
