Compared with the local alternatives (in Milton, FL), SRCS is definitely the best option for sending an elementary-age child. (That is to say, I am comparing it with other schools, not with homeschooling - which in some ways would probably provide a better education for particular students). This school
... Read more outpaces the public schools easily in terms of performance and quality of teaching. In some grades, the class sizes are also smaller and more intimate, which we liked. Our children will not be able to attend for middle or high school (we are a military family and are being stationed elsewhere). So, I am not sure about the quality of those grades. But the director of the school is wonderful, communicative, and goes the extra mile to help if you ask for assistance. Mrs. Brainerd, the K-5 teacher, is a gem and my daughter adored her. We have a gifted child, who was reading well before kindergarten and Mrs. Brainerd took the time to challenge her with supplemental books/workbooks. 1st grade was alright....she probably wasn't challenged as much as she would have been at a gifted and talented school, but such an option was unavailable to us. Best choice for our time in Milton. Read less

Wonderful school! I currently have 3 children there and hope to have all 5 there when they are old enough. My children love their school and I love the education they are getting.

My child started at SRCA and when we felt the financial pinch we tried public school. Man did that ever make me appreciate the educational base given to my child. After ayear, we made room in the budget. It was worth every penny. SRCA teachers challenged my child to do his best. The work was not easy
... Read more but the teacher coached my child through the rough spots especially transitioning back into the more difficult ABEKA books from the dribble handed out in public school. God was brought into the classroom and there were times I had to explain differences in our beliefs and that of his classmates and teachers but I viewed that as an opportunity to help him see other views and opinions. It opened good discussions for us. What was presented was straightforward and from the KJV of the Bible. I now have 2 children in SRCA and love Read less

All of my children have graduated from Santa Rosa Christian School. They are successful and living a good life. The teachers are wonderful role models and they truly care for young people. One of my children just graduated from college and had no problems adjusting to a large school. Their grades

the curriculum in no way hindered me going into public school [which i did thinking i would get more education & in reality got less] whenever i needed help i got it & we werent rushed through the curriculum. Bible classes were part of the curriculum but they never forced their beliefs in anyway. talking
... Read more outside of class was never restricted though talking meanly about others [gossiping] was obviously not tolerated. & i know of no one that didnt have friends outside of school & they in no way extended their reach into the students lives after school. the principal is a woman so i highly doubt other reviewers accusations of women being made to submit is true, not to add my own 12 yr female experience there-i was always encouraged to participate. when i left i wasn't looked down upon and my time at SRCA will stay with me forever.

We were taught to not question authority. If I did raise a question, I became the problem. There was an increasing expectation of commitment and social isolation from others outside the program. We were taught obedience to authority in all circumstances. Secrecy was taught, to talk was to be a gossip.
... Read more Criticized, judged, discounted. God and religious beliefs placed above family. Excessive devotion to children was seen as a form of idolatry. Women could not make a suggestion without being labeled unsubmissive. Everybody felt that this church/school was unique and that to leave would always be a step down spiritually. Read less

This school has been a tremendous blessing to our family. Our children are very happy there and are receiving a wonderful education. The faculty truly has a heart for every child. I have home schooled and have had my children in another large, well known local Christian school only to find that SRCS

Poor level of education. One would expect their children to get some sort of quality education, but it is apparent that the quality of education is similar to sending your child to public school with prayer.

Kids are educated to have respect. The Bekan curriculum is a plus and outbids any other. The Gospel project offer all kinds of extra curricular activites to keep kids involved in sports.
