This is my junior high student's first year at Judah and it has been such a blessing. Coming up to the end of the first semester and my child is happy. The students are nice, the workload is manageable, and the teachers/administation/coaches are great with the kids. Thank you, JCS!

Excellence! It isn't the building that makes a school. . . it's the students, faculty and staff, and parents, all desiring to keep God in the center of everything. Judah Christian School is an excellent school because it has rigorous academics, and nurturing teachers who love their jobs and the students

They are raised up by teachers and parents who work together to help every student excel. God shows up at Judah because he us welcome. No excuses--just results! Read less

I'm a student at Judah and overall it's an awesome school! It's very safe, with teachers who really care and put their all into teaching. This school strengthens you for life and teaches great messages educationally. emotionally and spiritually. One thing that I have a problem with is the dress code
... Read more and I think I'm speaking for almost everyone in my grade when I say, I don't agree with not allowing skinny jeans, shorts, (fingertip rule) and a shirt that isn't a turtleneck or collar but is still apropriate. Also now that i'm in junior high I have to wear courderoy or twill pants >:(. If I found a school like Judah but with a less conservative dress code I would switch in a heartbeat! But overall it's pretty good. Read less

I was home-schooled my entire life until I decided to come to Judah Christian School for my freshman year of high school. Ever since my first day of high school, I've grown to love this school as I've grown to love God. From personal experience I can assure anyone that may be considering going to Judah
... Read more that it is an amazing school. By reading some of the other reviews on this page I noticed that there were a few people who felt as if Judah was a bad influence on them. Judah, like any other school, has its problems; but, in general, JCS is a positive influence. I believe the atmosphere of the school changes from year to year, whether good or bad, because of the students--not the teachers. Every high school teacher that I have had a class with since freshman year has been an incredible blessing on my life. They are encouraging and friendly yet educationally sound. I would highly recommend this school to anyone seeking a good Christian education. I hope this helps anyone looking at possibly sending their child to Judah Christian School. Read less

I'm shocked to see the one star review here. Clearly an isolated incident. I am a graduate of the school and have my three children enrolled now. The educational program is fantastic. My kids are easily a grade level ahead of their friends in the public school. The students work hard, but the environment
... Read more is far from cold or authoritarian. The teachers are fantastic. Down to earth, friendly and approachable. The clip chart is a way to reward students for demonstrating Christ-like behavior and to help those who are struggling set weekly goals to improve. Nothing more. Come visit the school (Friday open-houses starting soon) and see for yourself. My kids love their teachers so much they invite them (and former teachers) to their birthday party every year. A safe and loving environment with an emphasis on educational excellence. Read less

While the academics are fine, the emotional climate is cold, authoritarian, rigid and harsh. Students are scolded for things as ridiculous as getting their homework done early and talking outside during a fire drill. Teachers assert rigid control over students using threats associated with a clip chart.
... Read more Emotionally insensitive and highly critical. Teachers gossip about parents behind their backs. Anyone who complains is blacklisted. This was my experience. Other dissatisifed parents know to keep their heads down and their mouths shut. We removed our son. Read less

I am a former student of Judah and I am extremely thankful that I was able to attend this school. While I was a student, I liked the school, the teachers, the atmosphere, etc and looking back I realize how it is even better than I had realized while attending school there. The academics at Judah are
... Read more excellent and ahead of the public schools by 2-3 years. The spiritual atmosphere is encouraging and a wonderful place for students to be. Judah has helped me build a solid foundation on which my faith continues to grow. I don't have children, but if/when I do, I would gladly send them to Judah for school. It is a great school that builds an academic foundation for life as well as a spiritual foundation. Read less

With 3 attending, we are VERY happy with Judah! They are Christ centered from the admin, to the teachers, to the volunteers. The children have both an academically challenging education, as well as a loving and supportive environment in which to grow spiritually. Parent envlovement is high, and all are

The only areas I would like to see improvement is in their diversity. There is a definite need for educators specializing in special needs throughout the school. Add'l language, music, and computer education during school would also be a nice improvment. Over all Judah is a wonderful school with the community feel, Christian center, and academic strength this community needs! You and your children will love it here! Read less

I am a mother of ten, and have five that attend Judah. We love it! God is first.

We have many different church families represented at Judah and love the diversity. Come to visit. You

Judah is truly blessed by their talents, prayers and guidance. Read less
