We are very happy with the school. It is a school to grow spiritually and academically. They offer art and computer lab, and P.E.. They also offer after school enrichment classes that include sports. The school now has a parent/teacher group to add support and involvement. There is also a Moms in Prayer group which meets Monday mornings to pray for the kids. The teachers are highly dedicated to their rolls and responsibilities in the classroom.

Maranatha has been such a blessing to our family. There is a genuine Christian atmosphere of love and respect for one another. My wife and I have come to believe that God moved us to San Diego just so our children could go to this wonderful school. The public schools in the area are some of the best, as public schools go. And I would have to say that Maranatha is one of the best as Christian schools go. It's so neat to see my 7 year old take such a positive inerest in reading his Bible, praying for his friends, and singing songs of worship. Academically, our son is an average student compared to others in his class. But compared to his friends that go to public schools, they're parents say he's way farther ahead. The best advice I can give: visit the school and see for yourself.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
