As Registrar of Cornerstone Christian School, I must respond to the February 1, 2013 review. It sounds to me like a student wrote that review. The parents who place their child(ren) at CCS do so because they are looking for a school that teaches rigorous academics from a Christian world view. By the time our students graduate from high school, not only are they prepared to go to a school of higher education. They are also prepared to defend their faith in this fallen world. Along the way, they are taught to think critically and with discernment.
It's an insulated, devoid of reality schol, that forces students to accept their fundamentalist parents' world view. While the teachers are decent people and teach the required academic courses (as far as I can tell), everything seems to be based on the notion that Christianianity is the center of the universe. This results in teaching that emphasises faith vs. critical thinking. Instead of teaching what to think, the emphasis should be to teach how to think.
My son is just finishing the third grade at CCS. At the end on each year we reflect on his accomplishments, struggles and experiences. We also look forward to the next year and future years through 12th grade. We can't imagine his education without the love and support of the CCS staff. His enthusiasm for school, fellowship and life is a direct result of his time spent at CCS. We consider our family truly blessed.
Our son just loves Cornerstone! Like many parents nowadays, we have experienced other private schools in the area, and can honestly say that CCS is what we were searching for from the beginning....high quality curriculum, caring/dedicated staff and an environment that truly fosters learning, character-building and overall Christian values. The 'search' is over!! Cornerstone is the best Christian-based education we could provide our son!
I am a high school senior and I have been at Cornerstone since 8th grade. I can honestly say that this is the best school I have been to. The teachers really care about the students and want them to learn. The classes are all excellent and cover a variety of material. Overall, this is a wonderful school and I would love for more people to have the opportunity to have an education like this one.
i am well acquainted with this school as a grandparent who is quite familiar with the school programs and staff. the results are in the student's achievements - well rounded and achievers. if you are looking at the educational perspective, this is a winner. if you are looking for a sports program, this is not the school for you. the teacher enthusiasm and involvement with the students is outstanding. look at the achievements of the graduates - admittance to the Air Force Academy and other highly rated universities, plus a high percentage reaching Eagle Scout level. this is the proof of the pudding! a school well worth checking out.
Cornerstone is a dedicated, quality Christian school. The teaching is excellent, the students and staff are wonderful, and as both an alumnus and now an employee of the school, I am so pleased to be associated with such a great group of servant leaders.
Great teachers, teacher-student ratio. Excellent, sound theology. Special things like Literature days, field day, and poetry contest add to training and education. Great Bible classes.
Outstanding academic and character building school. Cornerstone teaches each subject from a truly Christian world view. This is not a school for parents who want a system to babysit their kids, or fix their prodigals. Their mission: To work with like-minded Christian parents to educate our children with love and mercy in a godly environment that emphasizes a rigorously biblical curriculum, Christian character training, and college preparatory academics. Their vision: To produce well-rounded, self-governed leaders who apply the word of God to every area of thought and life. Outstanding student leadership, teriffic staff. The only thing they need to do to earn a 100% is to have their own campus and enlarge their fine arts program (However, their Drama department is top notch!)
This school is exactly what parents need if they wish to see their children excel academically and spiritually. This school scores high in both secular and private testing. Many of their students are college bound or college graduates with their Masters or PhDs. They make no pretense about having lots of extra-curricular activities, but the ones they do have are stellar, especially their drama program. This school has a high staff retention rate--an added bonus in an age where teachers drift from school to school and are not able to connect with the students long term. Parent involvement is strong--it has to be. A strong home means a strong school. Parents make or break a school. If parents do not invest in the vehicle through which their children are educated, how can those parents expect their children to succeed. Those who doubt, should visit this school.
