As a parent who has had children attend Cypress from Kindergarten through Eighth Grade, I am well satisfied with the academic and student atmosphere that Cypress has offered. My children have taken advanced placement classes in high school and are in the top 30 students in their classes. I also know
... Read more of many recent alumni who are doing exceedingly well in high school and beyond. Cypress has continually monitored their academics and adjusted accordingly in giving their students the best education possible. Although there has been administrator turnover in the past, the current administration is determined to make Cypress Christian a place where children can reach their learning peak. As I noted earlier, Cypress has improved their academic standards, but they are also improving their teaching standards. Part of improving Cypress involves, not only improving academics, but also improving the teaching of these academics. After careful evaluation, I was told that a couple of teaching positions would be changed to strengthen the teaching faculty. In a previous post it was noted that some staff were fired, this is not accurate. Some office staff did resign to pursue other things. Read less

Our daughter is currently in half-day Kindergarten at Cypress and she loves her teacher and classmates. We get e-mails almost daily with school updates and news. We can also log-on and see our child's progress online. I feel our daughter is getting better attention than she would in a public school,

I have two children currently in the Cypress Preschool Program and I'm enrolling my oldest in their 2012/13 Kindergarten class. If you're looking for a school and staff that not only teaches about God but truly exhibits an active faith in Him - this is the right place. The Preschool teachers, the Director

The teachers my kids have had in the 2 years we've been involved with Cypress truly love my kids - and my kids love them. They feel and respond to the honest affection, they're being introduced to their Lord in a genuine setting and they're thriving intellectually. The teachers at Cypress are highly skilled, patient, encouraging and perceptive - they have proactively communicated with us when there have been issues and worked with us (their parents) with full, honest disclosure and concern for the children in their care. I have NO doubt that the staff in their daycare and school programs are every bit as qualified, talented and caring as those we've worked with so far. I can't really "rate" the additional areas as I have no practical experience yet - but I have faith in them. Read less

My children have attended CCS for the past 6 years and have had wonderful experiences each year. My kids have enjoyed all their teachers, class projects, field trips, etc. I have a child entering the middle school this year & I am fully confident in the 6 - 8 teaching staff. Teachers of all grade

One of my favorite things is the dedicated staff there to open car doors and greet kids by name every morning - rain or shine. My kids love the friends they have made here. CCS is truly a blessing!

I have a daughter in 6th and son in 3rd, both of which have attended Cypress since Kindergarten. I would not trade our experience here for anything. We have liked all of their teachers our children have had, and feel as though they have been stimulated academically and spiritually. My daughter started

The new middle teachers they've hired, along with the one that stayed from last year are youthful, very capable, and seems to really know how to connect with the students on a personal level. Since Cypress only goes up to 8th, we gave our daughter the choice to transition to public now or in 9th, and she made it abundantly clear that she wanted to stay until the end. Read less

I have had children in this school for the past 5 years. After 4 different principals (the latest is scheduled to retire at the end of the month with no information on a potential replacement) and a 66% retention level of staff from last year. I have to say the atmosphere has changed. We intended on

We are now forced with the decision to pull our children from the school and place them in public next school year.The middle school is down to 44 students this year and I fear for it's future. In the past, all grade levels were for the most part equal in the amount of kids. Now, the majority of the kids are K and 1st. As time goes on, there are less and less kids each year as the grades progress. Very sad. Read less

As the parent of a 6th grader who has attended Cypress since preschool, I am happy to say that Cypress Christian School has been a great blessing to our family. My child has loved school since day one and I atribule this to the caring teachers and the Christian amosphere at Cypress. I believe in parental

I have no worries about my child being prepared academicly and socially after Cypress because I have done my homework and talked to enough parents of children who have left Cypress and thrived wonderfully in the public school system. What more can I say? After 8 years (counting preschool) with no regrets, I would not trade my child's experience at Cypress for any amount of money or anything else. Read less

We were thrilled with our child's first year at Cypress, so we eagerly enrolled her for the next. Boy, were we disappointed! The teacher ran the room like wild kingdom...total chaos. Our child tested above grade level in reading at the beginning of the year, but was put in a reading group that was

Don't get me wrong, I am all for school spirit, but it shouldn't be the main focus. The reason we sent our child to a private school was to put the focus on academics, not on sports or school spirit. The new administration is turning Cypress into the most expensive public school in Columbus. Read less

As a regular attendee of Cypress Wesleyan church, I am extremely disappointed in the school. The Kindergarteners are punished for talking and even for not eating fast enough!
