True LEADERS are at Pacific West Christian Academy. Both my children love this school, and their teachers. All the staff at PWCA truly care about the children and know them by name. This school offers weekly chapel. In every classroom 1-2 children get reconized with a chapel award for doing a good deed. I am very pleased that my children can attend a school where they can talk, learn and know about GOD and his word. I truly believe that this school is a great foundation for my children to have CLASS. C=Caring, L=Leaders, A=Accountable, S=Scholars, and S=Steadfast disciples of Christ.
Yes, indeed, there IS an anti-bullying policy in place and it is enforced. It is wonderful school with very few issues!
Love this school! All three of my kids have gone K-8 at PWCA. My oldest is in college and doing extremely well. I can't say enough about the caring teachers, the challenging curriculum and the safe enviroment at the school. Chapel time at PWCA is simply something you can't get at any other school. The community is so welcoming I have met lifelong friends at PWCA.
Awesome! The teachers are excellent and very involved with this kids as well as the parents. Communication is simple and easy. The staff is very friendly and helpful.
Our experience with Pacific West Christian Academy has been amazing. My children are loved and prayed for there and they are getting a great education. I have found the communication between teachers and parents to be very good. Parent involvement is strong and encouraged. This is part of what makes the school so special. There is a great family atmosphere and I have made many dear lifelong friends there. Even my older children have continued their friendships with kids they know from PWCA as they have gone off to high school and college. The love of God is evident there!
Before coming to this school, we were at the top rated public school in Gilroy. We changed due to the high ratio of students to teacher. Not only does PWCA have low ratios but the greatest staff! I love the smaller school environment, makes you feel like your part of a family. I feel that my voice is always heard, and that the teachers truly care about my children. I really couldn't imagine going to another school. Currently I have one child at the elementary school and one at the middle school, I am very happy with the curriculum and my kids are very happy as well.
We feel very blessed to have PWCA in our community. My daughter loves the school and her teachers and her teachers love her. My daughter is getting a high education in a Christian environment. We are planning on sending our second child to the school as well.
Our experience with this school has been dismal. We find the parent as well as student population to be extremely cliquish. There is no anti-bullying policy in place and the administration is in denial a problem of bullying exists. I strongly recommend avoiding this school if you want your child to receive a christian-based education.
Great school, couldn't imagine putting my children elsewhere. They are educated academically and in the bible. They are taught dicipline, manners and respect. The staff hold themselves accountable for every child whether in their class or not. I drop my children off to a bunch of mother hens! Everyone their from staff, to students to parents are all very caring, loving and patient. I couldn't ask for a better place.
PWCA is the best school Gilroy has to offer. Great staff and great academics.
This school has a student to teacher, teacher to parent, and teacher to teacher unity like no other. There is an atmosphere here of warmth and caring.
My 6 year old going to Pacific West. She liked this school so much that I enrolled my son there. This is defenetly a great school to be in.
My grandaughter became a student at PWCA just this past year and she loves it. She is receiving a top notch education and receives personalized attention when needed - she's learning how to study the bible which she truly enjoys. Great school, we plan to send her brother when he begins Kindergarten.
My daughter has been going to this school for 4 years and it's a great school.
Great School, Was our first choice in this district. Our child has started in Kindergarden. Great teachers, awsome parent participation. Also great price for the educcation your child deserves.
Love this school!!! Great leadership. Wish there were more extracurricular activities, though. Parent involvement is required, but only 30hr/family.
