16 Parent Reviews for Brush Arbor Christian School
There is no perfect school but i will tell you for the price of tuition for a Christian based school, i have no complaints. My son started in the K5 program and now entering the 4th grade. They are awesome with my son and his disability. I could not ask for anything better than that.

My oldest daughter has attended this school for 2 years and we plan to enroll our youngest daughter this coming school year. I grew up attending a private Christian school in central FL and I wanted a similar experience for my kids. Regarding some of the other posts, I was bullied as a kid too, but
... Read more that's because kids are kids regardless of the school. Christian schools don't have perfect students any more than churches have perfect parishioners. I think they exercise a lot more discipline here than at public schools. Admittedly, this school does not have all the fancy amenities the school in my childhood had, but it is ethnically diverse, the tuition is reasonable (you don't need to make 6 figures to send your kids here) and I've been satisfied with the challenging curriculum, Christian atmosphere, and teacher's attitudes the last two years. As long as we can afford to, we'll continue to send our kids here. It's a tough decision on how to educate your kids, and every family is different, so go where you think your kids will thrive the best. Read less

This is not a Christian environment at all. If you're sending your kids to a Christian school because you want your children to go to school with other like-minded Christian children who have been raised in a Christian home, then this school is not for you. Your children, at least in the older grades,
... Read more will go to school with the same exact kids who go to the public schools. They're not saved, they don't care about God, and they are absolutely in love with the world. The church/school here has made a pact with the state to accept all and this is in direct opposition to the Bible they claim to follow. The kids know this and see the hypocrisy - that is why they don't respect the staff. It's a charade to make money - there is nothing Christian about it. The kids say the f-word, are openly disrespectful, and in general may be some of the worst kids in the neighborhood, even by public school standards. Read less

Not a wholesome environment for many of the kids in the older grades. There is cussing, bullying, and thug-like behavior with some kids seeking to exercise power over others through fear and intimidation. The staff sets the bar low to pad enrollment numbers, and this should be evident in the first week

Hmmmm? I guess the truth hurts, doesn't it? Apparently there is a common theme based on the few posts about this particular school. It seems that a dose of truth is uncomfortable and upsetting to someone. How predictable to infer that a poster is not a CHRISTIAN just because they share their viewpoint

You can see from the posts, that people either hate the school or love it. I won't waste your time- just do what I failed to do. Drive by the school and go with your gut. Whatever your first impression is, go with that. Also realize that the same used car salesman selling you a lemon of a car is exactly

You seem very spiteful parent who posted just below me, as for my family we love the school and wouldn't go anywhere else, some of the teachers are quite obese but that doesn't change the information they provide. Public schools are much worse in nearly every aspect. Try to forgive and move on if you

This school is rather small in comparison to other local private schools, one of the things I like the most. Children get better education, all testing above grade levels. True biblical teachings and beliefs are instilled in their student. Would refer to any family and friends who are truly looking for

All the negative comments left before are clearly angry people that aren't focus on what school is for, teachers are not suppose to raise/ discipline your child- that's the parents job. Brush Arbor teachers do an amazing job for what they are there to do, TEACH. Kids display what they see and learn at home... Academically it's an excellent school! We gladly pay tuitions out of pocket and drive quiet a distance. Read less

Usually at a Christian School, one might expect that the teachers and staff would truly care. They don't. Just as preachers are often ridiculed for being money-grubbing preachers the same holds true for their number 1 ministry, their money-grubbing Christian Schools. There are some good teachers in the
