Open Door Christian Schools Reviews

Overall, ODCS is a great high-school, it is perfect for parents wanting to send a student for their entire pre-college academic career. Open Door did a wonderful job in preparing me for the work load of college, and the responsibility of managing multiple classes daily. The only true complaint one could have is that the STEM department is extremely poor, but is in the process of heavy overhaul and reconstruction as of 2019.

I love this school. It's home. I love the people here, the christian environment, the support, everything. The teachers here work hard, teach students well and support them. Though over the past few years, the high school science and math programs have struggled, I can safely say that the administration is making changes that are improving education and presenting more opportunities to students and staff. Things that have needed work are getting it. Being a student at ODCS for going on nine years, I will say that being in this environment is amazing. While getting a good education and preparing for my future, I have the incredible opportunity to learn more about God, advance in my walk with Christ, and grow firm in my faith. Though getting awards, good reviews, and a bigger student population is cool, that's not our focus here at ODCS. Our focus is to get a good education and prepare for the future through and FOR God.

I love knowing the staff cares at Open Door! They are more than just staff, and they want us to succeed. We not only get to excel in our subjects, but we have a daily Bible class and chapel so we can grow spiritually too!
