We have attended this school for 4 years. The school has truley showed us God's love through everything they have done. We consider ACA as family and are thankful for the opportunity our children have here! Thank you.

I'm looking forward to this coming school year. I enjoy teaching at Arrowhead and sincerely desire to work with parents in educating their children. And I like the kids! Go Eagles!

I can't wait until the end of this school year! I will be transferring my son back to public school. I have requested conferences during "conference week" and never heard a word, the teachers seem to "lose" your contact information quite frequently. The troubled kids walk all over the teachers (most of whom don't seem to be qualified to teach). The atmosphere is unhelpful and negative. The school majors on the minors (and I mean REALLY minor) and unfortunately my son is leaving with the feeling that being a Christian is "too difficult" and "too judgemental". These are his words. Sending my son here was a mistake. I hope I can undue the damage they've done.

This school not only cares about your child's education, but cares about your child's heart. It is a blessing to know that every teacher prays for their child. They teach because this is what God has called them to do. Thank you.

We know our child is receiving a top rate education. The small class sizes and caring staff support our child's learning. This school is more than a school, they are a family. They truly care and support each student's needs.

Although many facts about Arrowhead Christian are out of date, the school itself has strong Christian standards of morality, excellent teachers, and outstanding leadership. The school has many of the qualities of traditional school from the 1950's where parents supported the leadership and teachers of the school and discipline it fair and equitable and quite strict, as the Bible examples require. I am a former teacher with a Masters Degree in Education, and very familiar with the school.

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.
