Where do I start? My kids attended this school until this year. We have experienced a prideful Principal (gave himself the lead role in the spring play), the Kindergarten teacher is now teaching 3rd/4th and she has no formal education, the new Kindergarten teacher barely speaks English (great for learning phonics...not!), the 1st/2nd teacher hates her job, and it has the filthiest bathrooms I have ever seen. My kids were sick more than they were well, and since we left there...not one fever or illness. They left a kid in L.A. on a field trip to the CA Science Center. They just raised daycare charges to $6.50 an hour...the daycare doesn't seem to like children because all I ever witnessed was her yelling at them. Why would I pay $6.50 an hour for that? The daycare now costs more than the tuition, how does that make sense? It is a hot mess over there. The low-cost tuition will lure you in but don't be fooled... you are turning your kids over to people who speak really good "Christian-ese" but do not practice what they preach. My kids were miserable there and I just wanted to warn others! This school needs to close and fast before they taint anymore kids!!!
Both of my children attend this school. They both came from a public school education, and are maintaining straight A's. My daughter's have been challenged spiritually and educationally. I highly recommend this school. The teachers are absolutely amazing! They genuinely love their students, and strive for excellence as they teach and admonish them in the ways of Jesus, as well as providing a quality education. If you are looking for a school that fosters spiritual and education growth, Calvary Chapel Anaheim school is the place to be.
Greatly satisfied with this school - this is the theme of feedback I received at parent conferences last week as teacher at CCAS. As principal (my other function), this dissatisfied parent never came to me personally to express their concerns. Every parent issue that has come across my desk has been answered with prompt parent/teacher communication. But I will address these concerns (however inappropriately voiced) with our administrative staff as soon as school resumes after the Thanksgiving break. (Matthew 18 principle comes to mind here.)
This is a great school if you're wanting a low tuition cost. But trust me you get what you pay for! Poor administration, horrible communication, disorganization, and I have seen very little growth of my child academically. If you can afford a higher tuition I suggest sending your child elsewhere.
This is a great christian school! Adleast one parent need to be a christian which makes it such a great school! Also the tuition is so awesome 1st child $3,150.00 , 2nd child $2.450.00, 3rd child $1,900.00 and the 4th and on free! They offer sports and many other fun things for the kids!
If you are looking for a school that is all about Jesus, you have found it. Extra bonus academic excellence. Extra,extra bonus lowest tuition anywhere. What a blessing!
This school teaches much more than higher education. They teach love, respect, patience and much more. As a parent with two kids in this school, (this is our third private school)I highly recomend it to any Christian family.
This school has been a big disappointment. It is probably fine for most kids, but our second grader needs accelerated learning opportunities which have not been available. It does not appear to be a forward looking school. It's practices are at best outdated not unlike little house on the prairie. There is one teacher that tries to teach all subjects. There is no assistant. There is no music program, no art program, no physical education program. The school decided to go off of the Beka program this current term. My daughter has suffered academically. The Principal himself has taken the responsiblity of teaching third grade. The class limit of twenty, and hot lunches are appreciated. I can recommend it only in contrast to most of the other public schools in the district.
