Good concept but bad execution. School resources restrict students ability to expand. Small classrooms doesn't necessarily mean better education.

This is a wonderful school. My children love it there. There is more one on one time with the teachers because of smaller classes. The kids have better relationships with classmates since there are smaller classes. There is a great christian atmosphere. I am completely happy with the change from public to private school. I only wish we had done it sooner.

This is an amazing school. The academics are excellent and the teachers and staff are so caring-all with a Christ-centered environment. Standardized test scores are way above average. Though small, this school can compete with the big boys. You won't find better teachers anywhere! VERY satisfied with the education my son received. Five stars!

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

More from this school
  • Hoover Christian School has a tremendously low student/teacher ratio. With six full-time, accreditated teachers, three full school-day staff, plus distance learning master teachers--all for less than 70 students--our students get lots of personal attention. Our high test scores (over two grades above average) are the result.
