Bookcliff Christian school strives to keep their students in a Christ-centered environment and above the average standards. Their teachers love what they do and strive to give each child the absolute best learning experience they can! Its a great school!

We love Bookcliff Christian School. It's a very family, friendly, and loving environment where my child is thriving! They have strong academics, a safe environment and strong character building. They teach and love on the whole child, not just what the textbook says. Next school year I will have two kids at BCS and we couldn't be happier!

Bookcliff Christian school has been amazing for my family. My children have received an excellent education, utilizing a well thought out curriculum that incorporates God and carries through from kindergarten through 5th grade. I appreciate the personal connections we have found with teacher's and staff. My children are loved at school and are happy to be there.

I think they have lost their ministry mindset. We have had some very great moments at the school, but it became too often an occurrence that there was only the negative feedback vs positive loving reinforcement.

This is the best school that my child has ever attended. The teachers are fantastic and the education is great. Bookcliff is very clean and very attentive to each child as an individual. This is the place to send your kids.

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.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
