Staff is overworked and spread thin. Discipline is not what I expected in a Christian school. Teachers do not have a handle of the classroom. Poor leadership.Extra curricular activities are low quality. Before/After school care is low quality. Low standards and poor attitudes from the top to the bottom.

The students spend less than 7 hours a day in school compared to other private and public schools with at least with at least 8 school hours. On top of this, they have a lot of half days ... almost every other friday is halfday. I find this ridiculous.

My daughter started in Jan. 2007 after her school closed in December 2006. I was hoping to find a similar school. CTRLS far exceeded my hopes and needs. My daughter LOVES her school. There is a family environment among staff and students. My daughter wants to stay for after school day care just to play with the kids! The hot lunch program is great. For a small school, CTRLS has it all...Great academics; Computers; Spanish; Art; Library; Before/After School; Hot lunch program; Christ based education/environment; And very reasonable tuition rates.

My son has attended this school exclusively since Pre-K. He is very involved in all the activities that they provide. He has been able to achieve the 95 percentile in the nation for 4th grade on the Standardized tests. I am forever getting comments from other parents about how well mannered and behaved my son is and although I would love to take full credit this school has had an enormous impact on his excellent overall successes. As a single mom I have not been able to be as involved as I would like to be but I have over the years come to see how this school functions as a family and truly cares about everyone. My son may not be able to attend next year unless they have 6th grade but I would recommend this school/family to everyone.

This school is fabulous. The kids get a lot of attention. They come home with great morals, excellent spiritual vision, and tremendous enthusiasm. All of these are directly attributed to a supporting staff and church congregation. The before/after school program is excellent. My daughter is always happy, caring, and respectful. These qualities are taught at home and continued at school.

This school has low classroom size, great test scores and a community feel. Parents are very involved, mini-ministries & fundraisers are commonplace through the active PTO. There is also before- and after- school care available. Children also actively worship in the chapel. Spanish & computers are featured classes.

Very nice school. The teachers are very involved & the principle is awesome. My child is learning at an accelerated rate that far exceeds other children we know who are in public school.

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.
