This is a great school with awesome teachers. I really like that kids wear uniform.

This school has it all! Year round sports and enrichment programs like music and art are included in the academic program. It is a Christ centered education so they also get Bible and weekly chapel. I love the uniform policy and personally think every school should require uniforms. Some teachers are not credentialed, but I don't necessarily view this as a negative. I would rather have a math teacher who has a mathematics or engineering degree than one with a liberal arts degree with credentials. I ended up removing my daughter due to the large class sizes and disparity in age ranges. I am homeschooling now and my child is already reading and writing (K) at a first grade level, I am wondering what she learned there now besides all the extra stuff like Bible, music, art, P.E. and chapel. In my humble opinion, this is a wonderful overall school where your child will be loved and educated, however, the academics need to be improved.

Capital Christian is a great school to nuture a child's OVERALL success. CCS provides a well-rounded child and we have been very happy with our experiences these past 5 years.

I totally agreed with one of the reviewer that for private school, 25 students per 1 teacher is a little too much. I really don't know how one teacher can watch 25 kids. Even public school's class size is smaller than that. The kindergarden play area doesn't have a gate area, what would happen if one kid runs away when there is only 1 teacher watching all 25 kids. Also, the play area is so small and I don't know how it would fit all 25 kids in there. It would be all jamed. A public kindergarden play area are fenced and much much bigger than the one I saw. One other thing that worries me is that the kids have to nap for an hour. I have never heard that Kindergarden kids have to nap. I was a little shocking about that. Started off with worries and scared feeling.

This school is an excellent choice for parents concerned about their child's education. The school provides a Christian foundation, essential life skills training as well as academic arena for success. My son has attended pre-school and now is in Kindergarten and is excelling in his behavioral interaction with other children and comprehending books he reads. I have no plans for him to attend any other school.

class size are way too large for a private school. Thier classes can hit close to 30 children in a class. Most public schools dont even have that many anymore. Studies show once school reach over 20 the benefit of a smaller class dimishes. They star test and their score is not bad but definitely not great. If your looking for a school that focuses on christianity then this school is perfect but the teaching methods does not translate until outstanding scores

As a student who attended Capital for a long period (and three sisters who also attended, so a total of 16 years of high school experience among us), I found it excellent in certain areas while lacking in others. Building and focusing on spiritual and moral character promotion was always a huge focus and an area in which I believe this school excelled at. Academics and quality of instruction in terms of basic subject matter however were in some ways lacking. As this was the only school my sisters and I attended, I really do not have outside comparisons to give. As such, my thoughts are based on how well the education both spiritually and academically prepares students for life after high school. I would and probably will send my children to Capital someday, but with an attentive eye on their understanding of subject matter.

I dont believe the posters here who have denigrated and complained about this school. Do to my military service & other factors, my son has been in no less than 6 different schools, 3 of them public and 3 of them Christian/private. NOBODY puts a higher emphasis on academics than I do, and this school more than achieves in academic excellence. The 2007/2007 high school graduating class had something like a 47% Scholarship rate. This school isnt easy, it takes a LOT of work by both parent and child and I'd bet the parents complaining here are the larger part of the problem. My son has been here 3 years now, and even though I've been offered promotions to take jobs out of the area (retired from the Marine Corps and now employed elsewhere) because I am dedicated to keep my son in this school! Colleges actively recruit from this school.

Im satisfied with this school. My kid have been attending CCS since preschool. Shes now in 8th gd.There will always be shortcomings everywhere, despite of mine, leaving my kid in the hand of this school gives me peace of mind. I trust CCS.

I am raising a grand-daugher who attended other schools (yes, christian) before attending Capital. This is the best school she has ever attended. She commented that she wished she had started way before now (10th grade). The academics are superior. I would say for the exception of maybe one teacher they are are strong, wonderful teachers who want the best for our students. I am very happy that she goes to this school. It is worth the time and money!!

I have two sons who have been at Capital since preschool (now in 2nd and 4th) and we could not be happier with the school. The teachers and administration are wonderful, and the facilities are great too. The curriculum can be challenging but we manage and the kids are leaps and bounds ahead of others in the same grades at nearby schools. Its too bad some of the parents who rated the school had a bad experience; just remember there's always two sides to every story.

I agree that this school is not about the education. I also have had my child at Capitla since the preschool years and he is now in a public school and is far behind and not able to make it in the real world. Waht a disappointment. They are only concerned aobut the Dollar and the staff is very rude and not willing to listen to anyghting you say and just feel that they are rtight. IF you have a mind and use it you are bad and it is wrong for you to speak your mind.

My son started this year, he was previously in private daycare and we attempted another preschool before this one about 1 yr ago. The other preschool, I loved as my 7 yr old went there for two years and then in grade school did an afterschool program. However, my 4 yr old did not work out there.. at the time he was two. I was fearful of having new behavior problems and old ones too. He seemed to deal with the adjustment to preschool hard the first time. He started having accidents, tantrums, and telling the teacher no! Capitol Christian gets a million stars in my book. These teachers are experienced and seasoned. They help the kids understand conflict resolution and fixing the problem. I am so happy in the growth and love

I have experienced each department of CCS from preschool into high school. The teachers pray with the children and the parents and take a genuine interest in the family. They are very supportive and have helped my children grow both academically and spiritually. When my son was in preschool he was 'caught' praying for one of his friends who had fallen and gotten hurt. My daughter has struggled with her health and academics. The teachers and administration were always on my side. They prayed with her and guided her in her walk with the Lord. This school has an NILD (National Institute for Learning Disabilities) program, a resource program and cougar connection for the children who are excelling. This school really encourages every child and every family to reach their full potential. Definately worth the sacrifices we have made over the years.

My son has attended going on his second year here & we are very pleased. They are very attentive to issues that arise & very dedicated to the students. Private School is very expensive but I feel we are paying for an excellent education & have a voice.

We were very disappointed in this school. The level of education was substandard and the staff we dealt with was unnecessarily rude and confrontational. My child s teacher had the audacity to lie to my face and the vice principle spoke to me and my spouse very condescendingly and with very little respect. This attitude was very disturbing and so contrary to our Christian beliefs that we pulled our child out after only six months of attendance. We would never recommend this school to anyone!

The teacher were extremly willing to work with me in and out of the classroom. I felt that the admin was extremly approachable as well as fair to every student. The one thing that disappoints me about this school is that they seem far to interested in sports than in their fine arts and educational programs.

After previously attending public school the transition to Capital Christian was one of the best things I could have ever done. They have excellent facilaties, faculty and peers. The over all expirience has been amazing, and the only thing I regret is not attending Capital sooner.

The administration is more concerened with the almighty dollar than the Almighty. Very disappointed after 5 1/2 years. I moved my son to a public scholl in 4th grade and was also shocked how far behind he was academically.

My son attends their preschool and he loves it!! I am in love with Mrs. Herrera and her committment to strong 'teacher-parent relationships'. She always has a smile on her face and I have yet to see her on a bad day. The preschool office is fantastic in their creative approach in keeping their curriculum fresh and exciting.

We have been very pleased with the preschool and elementary program at Capital. The teachers communicate well with parents and have a heart for the children. My children have been challenged academically and encouraged spiritually. While there's no such thing as a 'perfect school,' I would highly recommend Capital's preschool and elementary school programs to parents who want to partner with a school in training their children in the way they should go.

I am very disappointed in this school. It has not met my expectations. The elementary program is lacking in teacher instruction. A lot of the work is small groups with the kids filling the blanks in on worksheets. The school if this was improved would be a great well rounded school.

Capital Christian School is a wonderful school committed to discipling students in every area of their lives. The teachers are caring and encouraging, and truly pray for and care for our children. The school has helped our children strive for excellence in all things. The sports programs are great, along with all the other extra-curricular activities available like after school art classes, drama, worship team, etc... We highly recommend this school to any parent looking for a place where their children will be discipled in every area of their lives. We love Capital Christian School and the academic and spiritual impact it is having on our children.

This school is one of the better schools in Sacramento County. With the moral climate of today, I would not have sent my children to any other place. Capital has lived up to its moral standards and also afforded my children to attend and graduate with high moral standards while coming away with a valuable education. Capital continues to stand on family christian values and their teachers not only talk the talk; but also, walk the walk. The faculty are loving, caring and nurturing.

Capital Christian School focuses on teaching children Christian beliefs while educating in a safe and loving environment. The curriculum includes subjects such as basic computer skills and Spanish along with the normal ABC's and 123's. A parent can spend as much or as little time as they wish with their child's class, they leave it up to them. Highly recommend this school.
