There is more to teaching than simply the academia. Each child is a unique and precious person here. CCS exhibits this fundamental core in their mentoring, by providing students an education based upon academic excellence and biblical values. Each child is given the tools to be the intellectually-equipped, community-focused, and anchored disciple. There is no greater reason, than the above, to have our children here.
I am so pleased with Cornerstone teachers! They truly care for the students! Yes, they educate the children. More importantly, they are concerned with attitudes and behaviors that are contrary to biblical instruction.
Cornerstone, especially in the higher grades, requires a lot of the students. Sometimes I think the homework load is too much. However, when our graduates go on to college, they frequently say that college course work is easy for them. Their hard work and well-developed study habits at CCS serves them well as they go to college.
Our students are academically challenged. I think individual strengths and weaknesses, one's personality, as well as family dynamics, all play a role in developing grit and determination within a person. Certainly, the opportunity exists for this to occur at CCS.
Our elementary teachers diligently instruct students in proper respect for authority while working with them on character development. By the time students enter the upper grades, good habits have been formed. Additionally, we require school families to review our Respect and Courtesy Handbook which expounds upon how we are to treat one another as Christ's representatives.
I reiterate that we are imperfect people at Cornerstone Christian School. Again, it is the Word of God that is our guide book. The staff consistently return to scripture when encouraging students to love one another as Christ loves the church.
As Registrar of Cornerstone Christian School, I want to respond to the November 9, 2015 student review. The student is correct: CCS does have wonderful teachers who care about education and who do a great job teaching the gospel. And yes, CCS has more strict standards than most schools, which includes our dress code policy. We believe the dress code is necessary. We strive for modesty and professionalism in dress, and we want our teachers to focus on educating the children without having to police immodest or inappropriate dress. This is not a matter of pride; it is a matter of purpose.
Great teachers. They really care about edgucation. They do a great job at teaching the gospel. One major problem with this school is the strickness. The dress code rules are unnecessary and inconvenient. The dress code isn't there for modesty. It's there for looks. Just that the school can look orderly. That's not something I like about this school. They also don't give much care for the girls who have to wear a very uncomfortable blouse every Monday. I'm wishing the school would change but I know it won't because of the pride of it's leaders.
My children are being taught both what is right, and grace. It is hard to get both, but Cornerstone is doing a great job of it! Also our kids are challenged to grow academically with a wide variety of subjects. (Math, reading, art, Bible and music etc.)
