Community Christian is AMAZING! This is our kids second year at CCS! We have one child in Elementary and one in Middle School! It is a Christ centered school which has become our family! The teachers and Principal love the students and pour out their hearts and lives to them..CCS has incredible academics, plays, drama and so much more! The sports program is an incredible one! My child has been involved in the sports here at CCS and has had so much fun, bonding with her awesome coaches and incredible teammates! It is priceless to see the coaches teach their athletes how to glorify Christ in everything they do both on the court and off! I also hear the boys and girls encourage one another which is music to my ears! If you are looking for school that is Christ centered has high acedemics and want your children to be taught in a safe and loving environment then CCS is your school!

CCS is an amazing school! What I love most about it is the teachers & their friendliness, we learn so much from them! My favorite class is handwriting & I enjoy the lessons we learn in Chapel! I think it's really cool that I got a locker in third grade! I plan to graduate from this school! Sincerely, a 4th Grade Student!

This is my daughter first year at CCS. We can not be any happier with the school. She was immediately accepted by her peers and has many friends. The teachers and staff are awesome. The academics are great. She is not only learning about the Bible, she is practicing what she has learned. The school is small enough that you get to know everyone. We love CCS!!!!

Our four kids have attended CCS for the last three years and we could not be happier. It matters to us tremendously that our kids are getting a great education (test scores overall continue to exceed area schools) while also getting a Christian worldview, in a familial environment. Teachers and staff genuinely care about our kids as people, work hard to educate them well, to keep them accountable, and to encourage their spiritual walks. In addition to education, the sports ministry is second to none. Being involved in athletics in a way that is focused on winning AND on building Godly character has been such a blessing for all of them. It's great to sit in the stands and watch the fruits of their labors, too. CCS sporting events are so much fun! The stands are packed and the energy is almost indescribable! We left public school because of unresolved bullying issues and agenda and needed a soft place for our kids to land. CCS has met our expectations in every way and our kids, who were resistant at first to leaving their schools and friends behind, quickly made new friends and grew to love the school and environment. Now they can't imagine ever attending anywhere else!

Where do I begin? Well I'm a student at CCS. I have been attending this school for two years now and I can honestly say they have been the best years of my LIFE. I know its only been two years but I feel like I have gone to CCS my whole life! I can't even express in words how much I love this school! I have so many amazing friends that are always there for me, support me, and show so much love and care. The teachers are amazing as well! I am so comfortable going to my teachers to ask for help, not just on homework but with problems in my life as well. CCS also has the best sports program! I love playing sports with my friends and make such amazing memories! CCS has helped with my relationship with God and grow so much more closer to Him!! I don't know what I would do without CCS in my life. :)

My children have attended CCS since kindergarten. They are in 6th and 8th grade now. They have never wanted to change schools. They love the teachers and all staff there. Academically they are above public school averages. More importantly the Christ like attitude of each of the teachers, the loving care that they have for each individual student is what my children love most about the school. We cannot say enough good things about CCS. My children plan to graduate from CCS.

A great school centered around Christ in all aspects. Family oriented and a loving environment. Our family has been a part of CCS for the past 11 years and we love our school.

My two kids have attended CCS since Kindergarten. My oldest graduated in 2013 and is thriving in college. She recieved 6 different scholarships based on academics, school involvement and community service which was a huge blessing. Both of my kids love the teachers, the principal and the close friends they have at CCS. No one slips through the cracks there, and everything is taught in a Christ-centered atmosphere.

I attended CCS when Mr. Bruns was the principal. It was an okay school while I was attending because some of the teachers I believed truly cared about my education and spiritual well-being, while there were many others who did not teach me anything! When Valedictorians and Salutatorians are unable to pass a college entrance exam, I believe there is something wrong. The only teachers worth while were the math and Spanish teacher, no longer employed there anymore. I am currently working on my B.S. and it is difficult because I do not have anywhere close to the background in English, Science or History as my classmates do who had attended public or charter schools. Sports are the main concern at this school I would be granted extended time on assignments because of a game where non-athletes were not, this is not good ethics for preparing us for college or the real world. If you think your child will get a scholarship, guess again, the only students who receive scholarships also played competitive. Basically athletics and academics are disappointing at best. Visit and sit in on classes before committing to this school definitely. Plus research each teacher in contact with your kid.

CCS is a Christ-Centered, Family oriented School. I went to CCS kindergarten until I graduated. Although there were some rough times along the way, my overall experience was amazing. I have made life-long friends and developed great relationships with most of my teachers. CCS is a place I can still visit and talk with former teachers who still care about me and what I am doing in life. You won't find that at very many schools, especially not a public school. Since graduating from CCS in 2010 I have continued to stay involved by coaching Middle School Boys Basketball, which is a great blessing to me. CCS is not for everyone, that's just the truth, but if you are looking for a school that has a family atmosphere, and want to be involved as parents, CCS is the perfect place for your family. CCS consistently has some of the best ACT and SAT score's in the state and if you think your child can get a great scholarship or get into a good university post graduation, your just dead wrong. CCS has had students attend the nation's top schools over the years, and has several athletes that get scholarships to play college sports. CCS is a great place, and we'd love to have you here!


Posted June 8, 2012

CCS is not a good school anymore. Years ago it was, they use to have close to 300 students and now they are struggling to get 150 students. Their high school volleyball coach made a "blacklist" that targets young males saying that they aren't good enough to date some of the girls on the volleyball team, that is not Christian like at all. They preach grace, but have a tendency to not show grace. This school was great when Scott Bruns was running it, the last school year they lost their principle in the fall by being investigated by the FBI. I would send my kids hear if you thought they would never do anything wrong. Most of the teachers are great, really the strongest point in the school is their math program. I will not being rating this school high at all because I truly believe that there are thousands of better schools out there that you can send your children too.

Well, this school is not perfect. They have struggled the past couple years but keep fighting to keep it alive. Having just graduated a year ago, not only did I make lifelong friends, but I grew a lot spiritually. You can take advantage of what this school is really strong at, or just take it as some other school. I would not trade my 13 years at CCS for anything.


Posted November 15, 2011

This school is one of the best that can be found in the Denver area, either public or private. There is a new administrator who is very enthusiastic, energetic and wants to make CCS the best Christ-centered school anywhere. We have already had two boys graduate from here and they are doing very well in college. They are in the Honors programs and received several scholarships for acedemics and athletics. For a small school they are very competitive in sports, and consistently rank in the top 5 in the state for 1a teams. Most importantly they teach a strong biblical world view and help the kids to grow strong in Christ. The teachers love the kids and overall the parents are very active in the school. We still have a daughter in the highschool and can't imagine sending her anywhere else.

No, this isn't a perfect school, but what school is. I am truly thankful for teachers who truly care about the students, and are willing to help them when they are struggling. The Principal and staff are always willing to listen to our concerns as parents, and help in making things better. The students are treated with love and respect, and students are helped when they are having a hard time with their school work. I have worked at several private schools, and CCS is more caring, teaches straight from God's word, teaches the children what it means to have a personal relationship with Christ, and is no way near a strict as some of the schools I have worked at, or my oldest child graduated from. I think CCS is a great school.

What a disgrace and disappointment! The teachers all have their own legalistic agenda. The youngest students are yelled at and belittled for talking or walking down the wrong hallway. The middle school and high school students are constantly serving detentions for having their shirts untucked, asking a question or for helping a fellow student with a homework assignment. The classroom management is so poor that the teachers, by their own admission, are unable to teach the subject matter. The majority of teachers just read the text book aloud and assign some busy seat work for the students to complete independently while the teacher checks his/her email. Many of the positive comments posted in November 2010 were a result of a plea from the administration for marketing purposes and were written by staff and long time church members. If you are seriously considering sending your child here, please observe a class for an hour before making any commitments.

I have had all 4 of my boys attend Community Christian. Three of them are now in college or have finished college and have done very well. My oldest graduating in the top 3 in his class. My youngest is still attending. This school has made an impact on my children and those that have graduated have made lasting friendships. The oldest 2 attending summer impromptu bible studies in the summer with his fellow classmates even though it has been 5 and 6 years since they have graduated. It is so rewarding to watch these 4 young men grow up and see how well they are doing and I know that a lot of this is due to the teachers and the student they have been around for the last 19+ years that our family has been a part of CCS.

My son has been going to CCS since kindergarten. He's now a senior. It's been a financial sacrifice, but we feel very fortunate that we've been able to send him to this school, instead of to a public school. Of course, issues have come up over the years, as they're bound to in 13 years. Some things have happened in the past that we weren't happy about, but the staff has always tried to do what's best for the kids. It's a Christ-centered school, and the faculty cares about the kids, and the parents support each other and the other kids, not just their own. That said, you get out of it what you put into it - as with anything in life. If you're thinking about sending your child(ren) here, but you're not sure what to think after reading the conflicting reviews, you should come visit and check it out for yourself. That's the only way to really know if it's right for you. Because everyone develops opinions based upon their own experiences, and based upon the way THEY see things. Unless they're just like you in every way, you're unlikely to feel exactly the same. And remember, the only thing constant is change. God bless.

I've got two (2) daughters at CCS. My oldest is a senior and my youngest is a sophomore. We've been at CCS for thirteen (13) years. My wife and I have been extremely happy with the education my daughters have gotten. I feel my oldest daughter has been properly prepared for college with the AP classes she's taken and she scored in the 75th percentile nationwide on the ACT test. Both my daughters play all the Varsity sports offered at CCS. You'd be very hard pressed to find a private christian 1A school in the entire Denver Metro area that has as good of an athletic program as CCS.

Several students have graduated and received several academic/athletic scholarships for colleges. This school has performed several service work to our community. This is an excellent school!

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

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.
