This school is far from excellent. After leaving a constant bullying even physically hurt by others, my child has thrived at her new school. So much so that they will graduate with one full year of college done before they graduate high school. Something this school does not offer. The friends my children have gained don't put them down, yet instead lift them up. Something we never had at VCS, and my oldest is no longer coming home with bruises but with smiles.
Victory Christian has a great staff and a positive Christian environment for the kids. The academics are exceptional and advanced. My child has been at VCS since she was three years old. She finished the first grade scoring on a third grade level in many subjects on her SAT testing at the end of the school year. Her lowest score was on a second grade level. Out of a graduation class of 28 the graduating seniors earned $768,000 in scholarships. That is not a misprint. We are not from this area and have no connections to anyone in Pell City. I think it is sad that people in town try to bash this school for their own person reasons and money interest in the public education system. Being a Christian and education is not important to everyone but to my family it is. Everyone has their vendettas and will say things to justify their own self interest. My child is safe and well taken care of in this school while receiving an exceptional education. The parents of other children are also great people who care about education. We love VCS and there is not another school in this area that is better in my opinion.
This school is far from Christian, quoting a scripture here or there does not make you a Christian school. Treating kids differently due to donations also does not make you Christian. We have found more people this year so excited to be leaving/transferring due to the bullying and favoritism. Which in my opinion speaks volumes that they are losing so many children. I pray for this school and it's leaders because they definitely need it.
I attended this school for over half the time I was being educated. I cannot tell how much I enjoyed my time at Victory Christian school. The teachers were amazing, very supporting, the discipline was enforced enough to have the students respectful, yet not trembling in fear. I grew in my walk with my Jesus while attending this school, and I thank each and every teacher and staff member. Victory Christian School is absolutely incredible, and their mission statement is true. If you have children, this is absolutely the place to send them.
I graduated from VCS a couple of years back. I would highly recommend this school! While in school there were some rules I didnt like and some teachers, but looking back I wouldnt change a thing. I am in my second year of College now with all A's and have helped many of my class mates. English 101 and Math 100 felt like a review for me, as for my classmates(who attended public school) they were struggling the very first day and alot had to drop to the lower math, that does not even count as a college credit!! The academic part can be hard or stressful but now I am very grateful to all my teachers!!! I already know this will be the school my children will attend!!
