My son and I love this school and the staff. It really is like a family here. The school loves and encourages parental involvement. The teachers and staff really model the values and morals that they teach the students. Very happy with the decision to switch him to Cinco!

I also think that Cinco is a wonderful place to send your children to learn. I have no reservations whatsoever about any of the teachers. They are all very well trained and of exceptional integrity. I put three children through to the 5th grade and would do so again without a worry. I was shocked

If you are gonna call someone out by name, and are not comfortable putting your name to your comments, then maybe you are making those comments for the wrong reasons.

I have a grandchild at Cinco and I have nothing but great comments about the education being received. I have to say that these two negative comments are the only negative comments I have ever heard about Cinco, and I stress ever heard . Every word I have ever heard about this school, for the past

I have to agree with the last comment that being compared with homeschooling is a plus, since those children are accomplished students who do well as they move into public or private schools just as Cinco students are. The other negative post sure reads like it is from a former employee with an axe to grind. I recommend Cinco Baptist School without reservation and with the highest marks! Thanks for everything Cinco! God Bless! Read less

To the staff at Cinco I think you should take it as a compliment that one of the reviewers referred to Cinco as a step above being home schooled. Home Schooled Children are known for being incredibly smart and well mannered. They score very high on tests and adapt well to outside learning environments.
... Read more When my daughter attended Cinco I loved the attention she was given. Perhaps the reason the other child is no longer making A's is because he no longer has teachers staying on top of his academics or his work being handed in. I say if he was fortunate enough to have that kind of attention in was worth every penny spent. So, rather than blaming Cinco they should be thankful for the guidance given. As for my daughter she has continued to make straight A's even being placed in tag classes in middle school. Thank you Cinco!! Read less

I don't believe this school is completely worth the price you pay. I really liked the teachers and the fact that it's such a small environment. However, I'm not sure what went wrong because despite my son being a straight A student at Cinco, he went on to public school and struggled to maintain average

I would say that sending your child to Cinco is not a bad idea, but to me it's like a step above homeschooling- Your child willed be school in an old-fashioned way, but at least your child will be around other kids their own age.

I am a father of two boys that both attend Cinco. I am amazed at how much they have learned, I do not think that I was even half as smart as they are at four and six, and I attribute it to the teachers at Cinoc. I also love how much the Teach me about the Bible. The boys keep me accountable for my

Another thing I love is how everone knows them by name, the principal, the upper elementary teachers, and just all the teachers in general . . . It makes the boys feel so special. Another difference between Cinco and public schools is how often the involve the parents in activites. I have been invited to every class party, the family reading night, pasta dinner, talent show, field day, science fair, music programs, Dr. Seuss Day. It's amazing! Read less

While I really have a lot of respect for some of the teachers at Cinco, the school has some problems at the fundamental level. The phonics-based reading program leaves much to be desired (emphasis is placed on how well a student can read orally and not so much on comprehension). Cinco uses a curriculum

Students are expected to quietly sit in their seats and perform seatwork for a good portion of the day- A nightmare for children who need movement and stimulation. The math program is lacking because the students learn old-fashioned style mathematics and are not taught reasoning. For all the rules the office expects students to follow, their 'uniform' dress code is lax and the students look very sloppy. Warm, fuzzy talk is used by the administration to mask the school's inherent issues. Read less

Cinco has provided my child one of the best learning environments possible in the area. They have a number of extra curricular activities to challenge gifted children. To name a few - Accelerated Reader (AR); Extra Mile (EM); and the Spelling Bee. For 2 years now, my child has received a 1/2 hour

You would be hard pressed to find a public school teacher to give that much of their after school time. Cons: Cost (however you get what you pay for); although plans are to add grades 6 thru 8, currently Cinco stops after the 5th grade; lack of sports (the YMCA tends to match up Cinco kids) Pros: Christian school, family atmosphere; ABEKA curriculum; staff is extremely accessible; Summer program; great playground Read less
