I'm so glad that I found this school. My children went to public school until my daughter was bullied for praying at lunch time. I am so grateful to have a local Christ-centered school to send my children to! Not only is praying encouraged, but it is a normal practice at Temple Christian School. My children are not only advancing in their education, but they are also strengthening their relationship with God! Both of my children look forward to returning to Temple Christian School this year.

We sent are son to public school for Kinder and boy are we glad we chose to make the switch to Temple. Both of our children have done tremendously well academically at Temple due to the caring teachers and staff. Our children are extremely happy at Temple and we are grateful for a Christ centered environment. You won't be disappointed sending your kiddos to TCS.

I loved my time at Temple Christian School as a parent and a staff member. The environment was top notch and my children's teachers were loving and caring. I loved the smaller classroom environment to enable more teacher student time. If we hadn't moved from Perris, my children would still attend TCS.

It has been a wonderful experience teaching here at Temple for the past ten years! There is nothing more valuable than being able to teach the word of God to our little ones!

Love this school...Christ honoring atmosphere...excellent academics...caring teachers...just great people. So thankful Perris has a private school like Temple. Not just a blessing to our family, but the entire community!

Temple is more than a school, it's a family! Our children attended a large "Christian" school prior to attending TCS, and among all that they had to offer (sports, electives, academics) they were very much lacking a spiritual environment that reinforces all that we endeavor to teach at home. TCS offers great academics, using the Abeka curriculum, along with sports and electives, as well as a spiritual environment that encourages the students and staff to have a real relationship with God! Among all the schools out there, TCS is by far the most God honoring and we are thankful for a place our children can attend and grow both academically and spiritually.

TCS is a great place to work! The students, their parents, and the staff are like a big family and that is a great environment for children and the staff. The best part about TCS; however, is the Christ centered focus of the school.

I am looking forward to my son starting Kindergarten at Temple Christian School because I know that he will be getting a great education and he will be taught from the Bible! :-)

I used to attend this school and the church. It used to be excellent. In fact, that was a motto. However, the new staff is horrible. They are not trained or credentialed as the school says they are. There are combination classes throughout so that they can save on paying for more staff. The same grades at other Christian schools are exceeding what this school teaching. Too many changes were made to this institution a few years back and new "management" (that's what they call themselves) bulldozed the staff and the educational structure of the school. There's no compassion and no desire to help your child learn. If you are divorced, they are very judgemental. They work off of a "what can you do for us" mentality. No thank you. I'll send my child to Woodcrest or Riverside Christian Day School. Schools where they teach love and respect along with grade appropriate academics and college approved courses.

Amazing! I absolutely love this school. Hands down, my kid is surrounded by LOVE and is being taught daily!! The word of God is taught, all the while my kid brings home A's and B's. This is a safe place for my child, and I know that when I am at work, my child is in GREAT hands!

The preschool is excellent! My daughter has learned so much since the begining of the school year. She absolutely loves her teachers and the director. She is already reading and we are confident she is more than prepared for Kindergarten. We are sending our son here next year as well.

This used to be and feel like the right school but ever since the school made major changes it doesn't feel right to drop off the children. TCS states that their staff is experienced with over 30 years reality its just one good and Christian teacher Mrs.Brown (kinder). She is wonderful!! But they do discriminate . If your aren't Caucasian good luck! Also is you are a single parent not married even worse! The children don't learn correctly because they share teachers and classrooms with other grades. I didn't like the thought to have my child be the only 7th or 8th grader. Several parents pulled their children out based on the poor staff and their changes. My children attend to another private school and are very happy

This is a great school. My Child is reading and doing math well above grade level, all in one year of attending the school. The academic program is challenging and behavior expectations are high. The staff is gracious and courteous. They are constantly making improvements to the facilities, which I appreciate. I highly recommend the school.

This school does not provide the level of social developement skills desired for preschoolers. Teaching preschoolers how to communicate with one another when feuding is not reinforced. Timeout is too often used when simple communication is all that is needed. School work given is mediocure at best. Too much time is spent on what the child is doing wrong instead of reinforcing what the child is doing right. Office politics run this school and complaints are not heard unless the teacher has seniority.

Excellent Teachers and administrators. Large parent participation. Students are learning above grade level. Could use better playground area. Needs a bus or two for field trips.

Great academic program for the middle of the road/average student. Not able to accomodate or challenge above average/advanced students. Not able and/or not willing to assess individual functioning level. My child is reading one grade level above school level at home and school is not prepared to offer the opportunity for my child to read and perform at this higher level. The same is true for in the area of mathematics. Standardized tests are only performed every other year according to the school policies and procedured, however, after two years my child has yet to be offered and/or administered a standardized test. Parent involvement is limited to fundraisers and transporting children to fieldtrips on behalf of the school. The school does not have a Parent Board or any form for the parents to be heard. The parents can not attend school/church board meetings, no less address the boards.
