My daughter has just graduated from 6th grade after 7 years at this school. We had planned on my child attending public school until we found this school and saw the value in their program. The teachers give each child individual attention and care. Kids are supported at every step in their education. Families are very involved and work to make events special and meaningful. Student of the month awards target character. My child learned advanced educational skills but also learned about God's Love. Everyone working there is invested in the kids. It's a small school with a big heart and we would encourage any parent concerned about their child's education to see the program. It has been a blessing to us!

I absolutely love this school. The environment is great as are all the teachers and staff members. My daughter has attended Crescent Avenue Christian Preschool (CAPS) for 1 year and she has learned a great deal. I would definitely recommend this preschool to anyone looking for a place to enroll their child/children.

I LOVE this school. My daughter has attended here since Kindergarten and she adores going to school each day. The teachers are incredible as are the administrators. This is a school where the staff show that they love what they do each day by passing their joy on to the children. Included with the unsurpassed curriculum are things of the past in public schools like p.e, recess, art and music. This school turns out the most well-rounded, well-adjusted and happy little ones once their elementary school career comes to a close. I wouldn't change a thing about Crescent.

I have a daughter in 5th grade attending CACS. She loves it so much that most of the time I cannot get her to leave. The family environment makes it a great place to spend time and the teachers always encourage the children to achieve their highest goals. I would recommend this school to anyone who values that their children learn an advanced education coupled with the teachings of the Lord.

I have two kids attending CACS. They love it and we love it. This school is like a family to us. The teachers, the staff and the parents are great. We all work together to create a great enviroment for our kids, where we can show the love of God by sharing and helping each other. The combination of a Christian education and strong academics make this school a great place for kids to grow up.

My son just finished Kindergarten and my daughter is enrolled at the pre-school. The school provides a great academic base for the kids. The SAT Achievement Test scores are impressive. But the greatest thing about this school is the tremendous love and spiritual guidance that the tachers and staff provide. I never expected that from a school. They provide a great environment for Christian families to meet and develop friendships. We have become really good friends with teachers, staff, and other parents. I would recommend both the school and the pre-school to anyone looking for a great school to reinforce Christian family values.

My daughter is enrolled in the Crescent Avenue Christian Preschool program. She adores her teachers and peers! I am a teacher in the public schools, and I have been extremely impressed with the education my daughter has been receiving. Not only is she receiving a quality academic education, it is being delivered in a loving, Christian environment by teachers who know their curriculum as well as the needs of their students and parents. I do not know if they are all certificated teachers, although I sometimes doubt if being certificated makes any difference in being a 'highly qualified' teacher. I am very involved in my daughter's school. I recommend this school to any parent looking for a wonderful, nurtering school for their children. The director of the program is also extremely involved and knows all the students (and probably parents as well) by name. The director makes sure the students have experiences which would not otherwise be available to them by bringing fieldtrips to the school such as magicians, mobile farms, and other excellent presentations.

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.
