This is the only school of its kind within the greater Jefferson county area. Furthermore, the staff is well equipped to educate your child from the preschool age as far as 12th grade. The school is not expensive for the quality of the education. Aditionally, the staff holds students to higher standards than most of the surrounding schools. The high school is college prepatory in fashion and has an excellent counselor. Most importantly, the curriculum is thought from the christian perspective. You will not see a more God and family oriented school in the area.

Rude is very true and phone calls to the academic counselor went unanswered for a whole month. I left numerous messages as well as my phone so we could discuss my childs academic plan. Very unprofessional!

I can attest to the fact that the prinicipal is rude, unprofessional, and very disrespectful. However, my daughter loves the school and her teacher is a gem.

This school is not funded 'real well' because tuition rates are not set to make money, they are set to allow parents who truly want a quality education for their students to be one they can afford. The adminstration is not terrible and rude, but holds high standards for students, staff and faculty. This level of excellence is not common in this city and that is why it is the way it is.

Our 2 girls attend Ridgway Christian and I know it is the best of all the schools in Pine Bluff. I never worry about drugs being given to my girls and they are really learning more about the BIble than they do in church. They are making really good grades even with the curriculum they are dealing with. It is costly but well worth it when you know that your children are going to come home safe. Also the teachers that I know are truly Christian Women. They live what they teach. I would highly recommend this school to anyone.

An excellent school for academics. If you want a bunch of extracurricular activities, however, it's not for you. By the way, it goes up to the 9th grade, and a 10th and 11th will be added for the 2008-2009 school year. The lower classes have a lot of students, but the higher ones have fewer. There are 7 in my class.

This school has provided our child with things money cannot buy; a loving, structured, Christian learning environment by dedicated teaching professionals. In addition to the environment, she scored two grades higher on her academic testing last year.

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.
