Transportation for students is available and not for free so the majority of parents drive their kids to and from school. This makes their small parking lot a nightmare and it gets worse when the high school kids get released because they pour into the parking lot and don't pay attention to any of the

Parent participation is high because it's required or pay extra money. My son went to school here for grade school and I ended up pulling him out in the third year. This school is good if your child fits into the model they have of what a good student should be. A teacher told me this and I never took my son to that school again. Read less

This is definitely a trend that has been noticed by many families and I know a dozen or more that have pulled their children out as a result and many more who are considering it at this time.

Every school (both public & private) receives points for education, sports, activities, and sportsmanship. These points are accumulated and the winner receives the 'Oregon Cup Award'. Santiam Christian has received this award 7 out of the last 8 years! Great school! Read less
