We love Arcadia Christian School! This our 5th year at ACS and the more we get to know the Administrative staff and the Faculty, the more we like the school. It is run by staff who really live what they beilieve, and my children have done well there under thier care. Thier SAT II scores are consistently high and they enjoy thier learning experience.
Academically not as strong as other area schools including other Christian schools. Junior high is particularly weak especially in math. I have been involved with the school for 12 years. Spanish is offered some years. It is always a very weak program. Computer instruction is also weak. ACS is a non-denominational school, however certain teachers are heavy handed in promoting their particular spiritual viewpoint, or denomination. The PTA was abolished by the principal some years ago. Parent involvement has suffered since that time. Parents have little say in what goes on.
I have 2 children at Arcadia Christian School and thought that I would have to give up some academic standards in order to gain a secure, loving, nurturing environment. Boy was I wrong! The academics are great and the curriculum is reviewed annually by a full-time curriculum person who is outstanding! God is honored, academics standards are upheld, the teachers are extremely loving, kind, caring, and excellent in teaching. It really is wonderful school and has been growing for over 60 years!
Arcadia Christian School is an excellent school. You child will not only grow academically, but also spiritually. They also make sure that their curriculum is within state standards. The kids are very polite and they offer different after school activities for the kids. The leadership staff is also excellent as well as the teachers. In addition the school is accredited by the state as well as the Christian School International. I highly recommend this school.
Arcadia Christian is has a good Kindergarten curriculum. The Kindergarten teachers are very experienced in teaching and have been educators in the school for a great number of years. The student/teacher ratio is 17/1. More field trips could be added to this grade level.
