As a teacher at USCS, I strongly believe the administration, faculty and staff truly care about the success of the students both in academics and in the student's personal futures. The strong emphasis in academic success and greater emphasis on Christian values has proved to be very influential in all K-12th grade students and it's been a tremendous joy and pleasure to join this team of teachers and parents.
Very disappointing experience at this school. Administration and faculty were very unorganized. Classroom management and methods were unprofessional. When we asked for help for our student, a plan and hope were given, but nothing was ever done. This school was very different in reality than "on paper".
I've had 3 children attend this school. It has given them an excellent academic preparation with a strong Christian influence. The drama program and outdoor adventure training is first class. I have been SO impressed
USCS has a very high academic profile. With a private school/home education combination your students will be well prepared to enter any Academy or University. (They have students in both West Point and the US Naval Academy) Next year they are adding over 70 classes to their already amazing course of study line up. (AP, Honors and Dual Credit classes) They also have programs for the students that would like to accelerate their high school career, all the while receiving college credits. This school is simply amazing. We love it!
I graduated from this school, and if I could redo it, I would have stayed at my previous school. It did not prepare me for college/university at all. I believe you deserve to know the statistics and the amount of the graduates that actually attended university, two or four year college after this school. So ask before you sign. Do not get me wrong, the elementary is the ONLY thriving part about this Adventure School. It is nothing but that. It is barely christian.
We have truly enjoyed this school this year. This is our first year and the caliber of teachers at this school is top notch. My daughter enjoys learning under the direction of her teachers. It truly is a place which extends a 'team spirit' environment...the teachers truly desire for the students to learn! Well worth the drive to the westside and the tuition.
Our children have done very well at this school. The small sized classrooms and tremendously caring teachers are wonderful. If you are looking for a Christian school atmosphere with attention to the character of your children and are interesting in them having a servants heart this is a great school. This school also allows the parents to still be involved in the education of your children. It has been a great blessing for our family.
