Quality of Education

OFS students in Grades 3, 4, and 5 consistently score at the 90th percentile and above in the Stanford 10 Achievement Test administered annually. The Stanford 10 is a comprehensive, standardized achievement test used across the U.S. and in American schools abroad.

The high quality of learning in the Peace Arbor, Grades 1-3, and Peace Academy, Grades 4 & 5, is founded on the depth of understanding the teachers have about the holistic development of each student.

Academically, OFS Elementary students are grouped according to ability level in language and math, regardless of age or grade. Each student is assessed regularly by demonstrating knowledge directly to teachers; the teachers’ ongoing observation and documentation of progress; and regular quizzes and tests. There are three Progress Reports and three Parent-Teacher Conferences each year, which review both academic progress and social-emotional development.

Each Arbor and Academy student keeps a portfolio of the year’s best work. They engage in self-assessments and peer assessments of academic progress and personal growth. Overall, student assessment in Grades 1-5 focuses on reinforcing central tenets of OFS: to value learning; to become an ethical person; and to recognize that every person has unique gifts. At Oneness, the goal is for everyone to be successful and be able to demonstrate that success.
