“Where do I begin … This is a great school. The teachers are amazing – not just one, but all. The fact that my two kids love going to school says it all. They love what they are/have been taught. I can’t really pinpoint one thing I like, because the truth is, I love everything Oak Crest Private School has done for my kids. Hands down, it’s just an amazing place!”

Fantastic school. The teaching method is extremely effective and my son now LOVES to learn. At four years old, he is reading, doing math and problem solving. I am so grateful for the teachers and staff who are dedicated to my son’s success. If you are looking for a school that your child will love and want a child who is eager to learn, this is the home for them.

“My two boys attended Oak Crest for four years. They have learned so much re how to study ANY subject with confidence. The skills they have learned go beyond this, including responsibility and making ethical decisions in life. I KNOW that my children will be successful in life because of what they’ve learned at this school. They are at a new school now (due to us moving), and their teachers are absolutely floored at the knowledge they both have. Their new teachers constantly tell me that they are so impressed with my children and Oak Crest for the wonderful job they’ve done in teaching my boys.”

“My daughter has been a student at Oak Crest since preschool. She is now 13. Her experience at Oak Crest has been amazing. She learned to read when she was three! Now she is an avid reader. Not only is she doing great academically, but she considers her school her second family. I am so grateful we found this school!”

“When we started to plan our move from Finland to Texas, the first thing we looked at was school options for our children. They were 7, 9 and 11 at the time and only the oldest one spoke a little bit of English. We wanted them to be able to learn the language and study in a comfortable, safe environment with teachers that truly care for them and help them prosper in their studies. It was also very important to us that our children would be able to attend a school that focuses on each individual student and their strengths allowing children to learn and progress at their own pace. During our phone call with Ms. Hildegard and our school visit, it became clear to us that Oak Crest Private School offers all this and much more. Their curriculum impressed us from the beginning and the decision to place our children at Oak Crest Private School was very easy.

During their time at Oak Crest Private School our children not only learned to master the English language but also excelled in all their studies. The support from their teachers was phenomenal. Our children were encouraged to be curious, to learn the valuable methods of independent studying, to master all topics fully and much more.

For our family, Oak Crest staff quickly became like family and helped us get settled in a new country. We truly appreciate the friendships both the kids and us parents have formed and will cherish them forever.

After spending 3 wonderful years at Oak Crest our family moved to another town and we transferred our children to local public schools where they all are thriving and have received numerous academic awards. We know that this is the result of everything that they have learned at Oak Crest Private School.

We absolutely love everything about Oak Crest Private School and can highly recommend them.”

“I had my son go to Oak Crest Private School, elementary through middle school. I would say that choosing Oak Crest was one of the best decisions I have made for my child. The teachers were great with the kids, not just in academics, but in establishing a great student teacher relationship. They engaged the kids in open discussions about subjects, both academic and life. I would say that my son had a very liberating experience in freely voicing out his thoughts and opinions, which I think has greatly and positively impacted his personality overall.

I realized that the school had a nurturing environment for kids to pursue their passion, and not being forced to do as a class/ group. One other trait I notice in my son is taking responsibility for his work and not having to be nudged to do the same – which I see has come handy in his new school – which is a college preparatory. I hear from his new teachers that he is very articulate, hardworking, and friendly – which I think Oak crest should take credit for 🙂 To sum it up, Oak crest private school has given my child the best foundation possible.”

“Making the decision to enroll her in this school was the best, since she was in day care before, I didn’t know how the change would affect her, but the difference environment and the change marked a great growth in my daughter, she learned many things, she also learned how to be herself, learned new words, etc. etc. I love all the festivals and all the fun activities they have plus of course summer camps are also a great option they offer so the little are busy throughout summer vacation. Without a doubt Oakcrest has very good teachers with all the desire to teach our little ones.”

“We are so happy with the attention our daughter receives at Oak Crest Private School. She enrolled in August 2022 and we have seen such a huge difference in her. She never used to like reading and now she has read so many different books. Special thanks to Ms.Claudia for helping her and keeping her on track with her progress. Our daughter is so happy and she enjoys learning all subjects. The office staff and teachers are all wonderful. The level of care and education leaves us filled with lots of gratitude.”

“We’re now in our 3rd year at Oak Crest, and not only did my firstborn thrive, my younger son has done so well there, too! Oak Crest has been the most nurturing environment I could have asked for. Love the communication with staff, the kindness of the other families, and the academic rigor. Both of my kids were reading confidently by age 4! We LOVE Oak Crest.

Review from 2019: Wow! I could not be more impressed with this school. The headmistress took her time to show us the school – and I mean every classroom. She patiently answered our questions. The students were calm, focused, and content. (And that was late in the day, during the last week of school!) My child feels welcomed by every teacher here. He LOVES his pre-K teacher, Ms. Bianca. Learning starts on day one. Communication is prompt and consistent. I appreciate the no-sugar policy and very small class sizes. I truly could not imagine a safer and more nurturing environment that fosters learning, even for pre-K students!”

“Oak Crest Private School is a great organization. The curriculum offered teaches students to master information rather than memorize information. In Texas Public school system, students cannot go to pre-k in public schools without meeting certain criteria. My wife and myself were left with the option of either keeping our daughter in daycare or enrolling her in private school. We enrolled our daughter in Oak Crest so that she would be challenged and they did just that and she was not only challenged but then began to excel. She finished kindergarten early and is now a year ahead. Oak Crest teachers keep in touch with parents daily and more if needed and they have multiple opportunities for parent involvement in the school and school activities. I would recommend Oak Crest to anyone interested.”

“As a parent that deeply values education, I sought out a private school for my daughter and and chose Oakcrest based on their philosophy of mastering each subject. The concept of not moving on to the next level until you have mastered the previous one really struck a cord with me. It makes complete sense that you can’t truly comprehend and build on a subject if you only understand 70% of the material. I also loved that children can move at their own pace and so naturally they will tend to move slower in subjects that are harder and faster in subjects that come easier. Regardless, they still have to master them. This teaches them self-motivation.

After my daughter started attending the school, I quickly realized the value extends even further. The mixed age classes teaches them to help their peers. The diversity teaches them to be curious and respect different backgrounds and cultures. The teachers were deeply invested in teaching so the students became deeply invested in learning. The school became like a family and teachers and parents bonded like a village. 

My daughter graduated Oak Crest and is excelling in high school. I can confidently say that she was very prepared to transition due to her experience at Oakcrest. She still stays in touch with her classmates and teachers there. The foundation of learning, discipline, respect and community is what Oakcrest is all about. I can truly say it’s one of the best investments you can make.”

This school is exceptional! We moved to Texas, specifically Dallas, for this school. Nothing compares to the individual attention the students are given. The curriculum is essential, not just for the vital education of reading, writing and arithmetic, but also for the life skills it teaches such as discipline, creating one’s own solutions, creativity, practicing leadership skills and developing the tenacity to stay with something until it is a 100% completion. 

From the curriculum, to the staff, to the students and parents, as a parent, I love everything about this school! Our son is in his 3rd year here. He loves everything about the school. He’s so motivated! This will be his second year to get perfect attendance. He literally doesn’t want to miss a day, nor be a minute late. That enthusiasm to learn applies to all areas of his life. There is a reason Oak Crest Private School gets voted Best Private School and the other awards it receives!

“It’s just perfect!!!!

I have two kids in the school, four and seven years old. Both of them didn’t speak English at all. After a few months, they are literally reading English kids’ books and shortly after learning Spanish.

The philosophy is simple, full mastery of the subject to leave no empty holes in the child’s education.

The teachers are very friendly and highly qualified. They evaluate each child’s needs and give them the full attention to succeed.

The headmistress and all teachers have created a friendly and fun learning environment where children can enjoy learning. There are lots of hands-on activities and school trips.

If you want a solid educational foundation for your child, look no further, you found the right school!!!!”

"My memories of my time in Oak Crest will accompany me for the rest of my life."

“The journey all began when I was just a little girl—a kindergarten graduate—that faced a foreign country. I was six years old when I first left my mother country, China, and moved to the U.S. I was reluctant to leave my comfort zone, but meanwhile, my childish curiosity pondered what life would be like in a new land. It was hard for me when I first arrived and had faced many obstacles. I remember all of the difficulties as if it was yesterday, language barriers, cultural differences, trouble with socializing, and much more. Frustration and despair isolated me from schoolmates, like a single penguin standing on thin, floating ice. After enduring defeat in both socializing and academic achievements for four years, I felt beat and was on the verge of losing hope, and that was when I stumbled upon a “Utopia,” Oak Crest, where my dream commenced.

Truthfully, my first impression of the school wasn’t exactly astonishing. Unlike other schools, Oak Crest was small and had a different teaching system. I started attending the school with doubt if Oak Crest could be of good use to me. As time advanced, I truly learned the lesson of not judging a book by its cover. On my first day at Oak Crest, I was embraced with a warmth that I haven’t experienced in 4 years. I was welcomed by the nicest, German teacher, Ms. Claudia. Her kindness loosened the lock of frustration and discouragement in my heart. My welcome buddy was also the sweetest girl, she lent me help throughout the day whenever I needed it, and never showed a single trace of impatience. After just a single week at Oak Crest, my precautious defense and anxiety were all forgotten in the past.

Oak Crest planned intriguing field trips and activities that once more engaged my interest in learning. Oak Crest helped me discover my true potential at learning. Their unique yet remarkable academic system designed a personal learning plan just for me. In Oak Crest, each student receives their own learning plan, and everyone moves at their own pace. This type of educational system doesn’t pressure the students. Instead, it encourages them to develop friendly “competitions” among themselves where they strive to catch up to students ahead of them. The targets you set for yourself are always easier to achieve than the goals that others set for you. The teachers at Oak Crest also believe that chastisement and punishment aren’t the best way to assist students on their paths of learning and growth. Rather than giving consequences to those who forgot to do their homework or didn’t complete the expected amount of classwork, the teachers sit down with students and encourage them to do better next time. After a long period of learning and growing under encouragement from teachers and classmates, the students will gain confidence that will accompany them in their future adventures. Oak Crest isn’t just a school, it is a big, warm family that can overcome anything.

Now I am currently a sophomore in a high school in California. Thanks to Oak Crest, I am no longer the shattered little girl. I concluded my freshman year with an excellent grade of five A+s and one A, and these achievements motivated me to choose more challenging classes in my sophomore year. None of these grades would have come so easily without the influence of Oak Crest. I believe I will continue to excel past my goals over and over again. The warm, encouraging words that my friends and teachers once said will support me through when things get rough.

I have overcome all the obstacles that stood in my way. To this day, my friends and teachers in Oak Crest still remain some of the most important people in my life. The adventure in Oak Crest has made me into someone different, someone that’s responsible and self-assured. Oak Crest doesn’t just teach you how to exceed in school, it also teaches you how to succeed in life. I can never thank Oak Crest enough, and though I am more than 1400 miles away, my memories of my time in Oak Crest will accompany me for the rest of my life.”

“The reading was easily my favorite part. The books never failed to entertain me. Each book was different, but all had the same effect of intriguing me. The books did an awesome job of portraying the story in such a way that I never wanted for reading to end.”
