Fabulous parents and wonderful volunteer teachers. The minimum day is great for students through fourth grade, but more difficult for the older kids. The biggest concern is the lack of teaching computers and using up to date technology. The friends you meet will last you a lifetime.

This is a homeschool in a school house. Your child gets the attention he or she needs, with a Christian curriculum . The school runs 4 hours with parents participating on a weekly bases.

For a Christian school, the administration lacks integrity. Any questions or concerns are pushed under the rug and your children are asked to leave the school. The children are just pawns.

Wow. I am stunned of how many people love this school. Even though, I'm one of them. This is a great school, I totally recommend it for PreK-8th grade. Wish they would make a high school. :):):)

As a Christian and a parent I would be sceptical in sending your child to this school. After three years of experience, my husband and I pulled our children out because of the lack of Christian values of which the leadership exudes. Several close families have left since for similar reasons. Principal

All teachers fear the principal more than the Lord, it's very disheartening. Academics are good but not superior. If your child is behind at all, he'll continue to fall behind. Teachers wont put extra effort in helping though they only have 6-12 students in each grade. However teachers are only other parents and most are not accredited. Read less

I highly recommend CCS. It is an excellent school. My children have received a quality education. They are at a much higher academic level than their peers who are in public school. I love the Christian curriculum because the core subjects are taught from a Christian viewpoint. The use of planners

I especially apprec iate the minimum day so that we have plenty of family time in addition to school, homework, and activities.

This school is not for everyone... it's not a "drop off your kids at 7:30am and pick them up at 4pm" school. I love this school because I get to be involved and see my kids in action. Parental involvement is required. Student study and focus is required. The classes are small so students get 100%

The curriculum is excellent and stays consistent (unlike the State of California's curriculum).

Parents who don't want to be involved with your kids, this school is not for you. Read less

This school is not for everyone. You need to have a quiet and well-behaved child to stay in this school. The principal has ultimate authority and is quite intimating. The classrooms are very small. The tuition may seem cheap, but there is a mandatory fund raiser that they don't tell you until you

But when you think about it, if she only has 5-10 students a year and the school dismisses those that they don't want to deal with, there is really not a lot of students she had taught. This school is not flexible. They follow a strict curriculum and will not deviate from it to accommodate anyone. Read less

While the school is a wonderful way to get Biblical support in an educational setting and the families as a whole are warm and inviting, it is not a school that encourages or embraces creativity and change.

Despite this, there is much parent involvement but solely as infrastructure- grading, etc. not as a dynamic relationship with the staff to improve their student's learning environment. If your child is below average, above average or highly creative this program will likely be unaccommodating for them. Many of the teachers are very committed and do a great job, but just be sure this is the right fit for your child before diving in. Read less

I've been thrilled with the school for my pre-k child. With only 5 students in her class, she gets a lot of personal attention and bad behavior doesn't fly under the radar. The facilities are not fancy, but that doesn't bother me because it's only a half day schedule and they don't waste any time while
