This school is great for k4 through 1st grade. It's ok for 2nd and 3rd, but the teaching of both classes (together) seems to be unorganized and confusing. If consideration were made to split the classes, maybe it would improve the quality of education for those children (maybe changes have been made - not sure). Unfortunately, after about the 3rd grade, social interactions, athletic opportunities, and general technology used in everyday school settings elsewhere may become a hinderance to the student; thus, classes fall off significantly after 3rd grade (often 5 or less students through about 6th grade and 1-2 students in upper grades; general class sizes for k4-3rd are about 4-9 students). The school's teachers and administration do firmly believe in God, and they do a great job communicating the Christian faith to the children, and that is a great thing, especially in the day and age where public schools will not attempt it. Make sure to talk with current and past parents and students to get their perspectives (as you should with any school you consider) because each school has it's paticular stengths and weaknesses, or peculiarities, you'll want to know about.
Emerald Mountain Christian School has been a blessing to us in providing excellent academics in a family atmosphere . Austin truly feels blessed being a part of the Emerald Mountain Christian school family , and the superb knowledge they have provided him. Where at any other School this 15 year old boy would be lost in the School work . Both I and my husband,give thanks and praise to everyone involved, May GOD bless you all. Thank you all Soooooo much.
This is by-far the best school! I would not choose any other private school in the area. You will not find any other schools that focus on all of the important points the way EMCS does. Strong Christian character first! Everything is taught with God! God is in everything! The children truly respond to this training and apply it to all aspects of their lives! You will not find fluff or "feel-good" emotions here. Everyone is on the same page with the truth and you can really see this everywhere in the school.
We feel that this school has been great for our children. They are growing strong in their educational pursuits, but more importantly in their relationship with Jesus Christ. I know my kids are loved and prayed for daily. I highly recommend this school to all Christian families!!!
