We have had our kids attend SJCS for the past 12 years, and cannot think of a better place for them to be educated!

I have had two sons graduate from SJCS and I have one more still there. My sons attended a good public school for eleven years, so I think I can make a good evaluation of this school compared to public education. The public education was free but came with a price; if my childs eternal destiny
... Read more was considered, the public school was extremely expensive. They taught evolution, homosexual tolerance, and a secular worldview. They were intolerant of any teacher who might use a Bibical reference to make an ethical point. At SJCS, my boys were streched and grown spiritually beyond what I could have expected. The chapels were tremendous and both of my sons were chosen to lead Bible small groups. The teachers are Christ dedicated (99% of them, at least, I believe) and do a great job of teaching every subject from a God-centered prospective. No contest! Read less

Though not perfect, SJCS is the best school in town! I especially want to thank the board, administration and teachers and parent volunteers for all they do to make our school such a great place for my family. I thank the Lord for SJCS! Never lose your 'Jesus first' perspective.

The education is fair- I have never had a child in public school- but when a teacher told me that she tried to adjust my childs grade so that she could 'earn' an A for that quarter- I had a problem. If my child didn't earn an A- don't give it to them. I TOTALLY AGREE with the statements made about

SJCS is turning into a PRIVATE SCHOOL with a Christian Cirriculum, instead of a Christ focused school. It is all about the money. Parents aren't allowed to attend school board meetings and you have to be invited to be on the school board. So the average Joe that is outspoken isn't going to be invited to be on the board. My heart breaks for this school Read less

After attending this school for 12 years, I can honestly say I would not suggest this school. Is the education a cut above the rest? Hardly. The math and science department were strong, but the english, history and the highly neglected arts programs were lackluster. As far as a Christian environment,

If anything, it inhibited it, because I was so angry with the corrupt leaders of the school at the time when I was a student. Certain students were heavily favored and they never were disciplined for blatant infractions. Until the school spends more time and money on important issues of the school, I cannot suggest this school for any perspective parent. Take your child to a public school, where they will have opportunities to express themselves and be involved in activities they Read less

I attended SJCS for 12 years and I had a lot of great experinces, but unfortunatly I had more bad experiences then good. If you are open minded and have opinions this is not the place for you.
