Furthermore, good teachers become discouraged and leave, resulting in high educator turnover each year. The only good I can say of Calvary is that most of the teachers genuinely care about the children and will go above and beyond to help those who ask for it. Do not send your children to Calvary if you want them to learn in a rigorous environment where they are challenged to grow and prepare for adulthood. Read less

Calvary Christian School is a great school. We have a son in Preschool there and he absolutely loves it. The teachers are so caring and seem to really love their job.

Our child began at Calvary in 6th grade and is now in high school. We have found the academic rigor to exceed our expectations.

Above all, a great Christian learning environment. Read less

I had two children at Calvary recently in the elementary and middle school for a few years and both no longer attend. There were so many issues that we had with this school and how it was run. Many of the teachers are not well equppied for the subjects they are teachers and often give little to no homework.

Also they put nearly all of their focus and money into their athletics program, lacking in all fine arts with no drama or band program of any kind and do not have a very academic focus. The faculty at Calvary are not open minded. If students do not see eye to eye with them in politic tal issues hey are ridiculed by the teachers. Overall, just a poorly run school. Read less

I give the school high marks for its activities and religious orientation, but as an educator I was very disappointed with with the school's academics. The headmaster tends to micromanage programs and dictate policy in a manner that truly hampers the learning process.
