Its so funny to see all of these great reviews on here especially so close in dates , because my daughters and I have never been more disrespected by a christian school .Mrs kolowski the 1st grade teacher yells at kids , dont let them take recesses and has lack of communication to parents . We tried to resolve those matters numerous times even met with Peggy Polson the principal , which was a complete joke.Peggy and the elementary administrator Connie two of the most incompetent people I've ever met.They have no regards for their students and being a very involved parent I feel I was met with great hostility and unprofessional attitudes. I also had concern for my 9th grader who was on the volleyball team and had to keep passing grades. While she was doing great in everything except Spanish I found out her Spanish teacher could not even speak Spanish and that was a result to my daughters bad grade. Its pretty bad when a student has to teach the spanish teacher how teach her class, when I brought this up to Peggy she showed lack of interest of the situation. After showing my concerns in a meeting .I was called the next day and was told I had two days to withdrawal my daughters
I was previously a homeschooling mom and decided to put my child in Belleview at 2nd grade. He was met with open arms even though most children already knew each other from previous years. He is now in 3rd grade, learning like crazy and having fun doing it! Also a great price for a Private, Christian School!
I love teaching at Belleview. It is amazing being allowed....not just allowed....but encouraged to talk to my class about Jesus Christ. The opportunity to speak to these little ones about not just Math, Reading and Writing but being able to take the time and energy to find out how they tick and what is important to them as individuals is wonderful. The other thing that I love about teaching here is the class sizes. MUCH smaller than your typical school. I currently have only 13 children in my class. Because I have a smaller group, I am able to give that much more attention and focus on each child. It is much easier for kids to "fall between the cracks" when the teacher is completely overwhelmed with 25, 30, or even more children at a time.
I am a parent of two children that attend Belleview and I also am a current staff member. I love this school! Not only do I feel loved and accepted as a staff member, but I also know my children are being loved and well cared for. My children are receiving an excellent education that is of high quality and is Christ-centered. Their teachers have always made themselves readily available anytime there has ever been a question or concern of mine. I was a stay-at-home mom and considered homeschooling, but I believe we made the right choice of sending our family to Belleview!
My 7th & 8th graders transferred from another Christian school in 2013. We drive 45mins twice a day (no problem for them) . They both love the school and teachers and the 8th grader is looking forward to taking honors/AP courses and independent study courses. We all fell in love with the school and staff on our initial tour and visit. I would highly recommend the school. They make learning interesting and challenging for the students. The lines of communication are always open. HIGHLY RECOMMEND M.& S. Neeley
Our family has been attending Belleview for over seven years. Our oldest daughter graduated in 2012. She is attending a small private college. We re confident that her education at Belleview prepared her for college life including living far from home and the rigorous academic challenges of higher education. She is doing quite well and as a result she received additional scholarships as a sophomore because of her academic performance. Our youngest daughter is a 5th grader and has been attending Belleview since she was in Kindergarten. We love the strong foundation she is receiving in small classroom settings. It s the desire of the faculty and staff that each and every child grows into their full potential, academically and spiritually.
My daughter has attended Belleview Christian for the last 3 1/2 years. She is a senior and will be graduating in 2014. We have loved Belleview and all the staff. My daughter has received so much encouragement by the staff and they truly love her. They always guide her in the right direction and are so helpful. She went from nearly flunking Math, to being on the Presidential Honor roll for the last few years. I would, and do, recommend Belleview as a school of choice.
Like any parent, I'd like to say that my children loved high school and that it was the best years of their lives. Unfortunately, this is not the case. My children attended Belleview Christian School. I didn't want my children going to a public high school, so I looked into a few Christian schools. At first, Belleview seemed like the perfect fit for them. Belleview seemed like a small school with a good education and good, Christian morals. However, I was far from right. My children were able to get straight A's without even trying. A college preparatory school is supposed to challenging, but Belleview's classes are nowhere near as hard as AP classes (or even regular classes) at a local public school. The teachers are very rude and self-absorbed. Most of them show absolutely no care or compassion toward students or parents. I do have to say that a few of the teachers do genuinely care, but most of them aren't even qualified for the subjects they're teaching. If you want your children to get a good education, I'd highly recommend not sending them to Belleview. Send them to a public school for free or pay for a different Christian school where they'll actually get a decent education.
This the second year that my children have been attending Belleview Christian School. WE LOVE IT! What a blessing to have such an incredible, safe, supportive environment for my kids to learn and grow! We are so thankful for the love and care poured into our children as they learn and grow in Christ-like character. Both of my kids have grown leaps and bounds in all subjects! They have had INCREDIBLE TEACHERS that pour themselves into thier students and they have fun while they learn! I know the administration works very hard to make sure all the students at Belleview are receiving a quality, Christ-based education and there is much emphasis on the Parent/Teacher relationship. We are very involved and have loved getting to know all of the Belleview families, teachers and staff! This school has been a literal "God-send" to my family and we will always be grateful for Belleview Christian. My kids are in 1st and 3rd grade and as long as we live in Colorado, my kids will attend Belleview!! WE LOVE BELLEVIEW CHRISTIAN SCHOOL!!!
We LOVE Belleview because the teachers and staff really care about our children. They pray with and for our children. Imagine a place where there are teachers that actually care about how your children are doing. They actually help them succeed in their studies. Godly character is modeled at Belleview by Teachers, Administration and staff. We have been involved with Belleview for 9 years now, two of our daughters have graduated and went on to college and we have two children still at Belleview. One in elementary and one in high school. There are lots of family interactions through sports, plays and the many other events available. The administration at BCS listens and cares about what I have to say as a parent. We can't imagine sending our children anywhere else. We love Belleview and the heart they have for teaching children to learn and to live for our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!
When it became clear that homeschooling wasn't an option because God gave use 2 babies the year my oldest started kindergarten, we looked at local Christian schools and Belleview was the winner. 10 years later it is still the best choice for our kids. My daughter is quiet and at Belleview she is allowed to be herself and is accepted by her peers and encouraged by her teachers. My son has ADHD and has done well in the smaller classrooms and with teachers who will go the extra mile to help him succeed. I'm thankful that all classes are centered around Christ as that helps our kids to be able to argue their faith. Secondary does a Spiritual Life Retreat every fall and that helps the kids and staff be united as a student body and have a deeper relationship with Christ. As a parent that is priceless to me, after all the most important decision our kids will make is heaven or not.
I am a proud parent of Belleview Christian School. I went to another Christian school before here and I will say what a wonderful change. I love the fact the kids are challenged not only educationally but also spiritually. Both of my kids have accepted Jesus as their savior and have begun to take dual credit college classes. I am thankful that my kids get to attend such a great school. Thank You Belleview!!!
After looking into and checking out at least 8 other schools, we selected Belleview, and have been extremely happy with our choice. The academics are challenging and far more thoroughly taught than in public school. The teachers are caring, and very approachable, interactive, and seem to really care about my son and his success. I was shocked to see some previous reviews that seemed intent on maligning the school, as I have been in every building of the school, day and night for various events, and have never had a problem with the cleanliness, which is far better than the public schools we have attended. The staff and administration are friendly, accessible and know and greet each student by name. The diversity of the school is unmatched, with many international students on campus. Yes, it is a small school, but large enough to have competitive sports and many extra-curricular activities, while being small enough that the students have a feeling of being able to really get to know the other students in their own and other grades. The spiritual support has my son happy we chose Belleview. While there is probably never going to be a "perfect" school, we love Belleview.
Unqualified and uncaring administrators create a hostile environment for both staff and parents. Parents who bring concerns to the attention of the administration are often met with with personal accusations rather than compassionate concern and solutions. This stems, I believe, not from an intent to be hurtful, but from a lack of knowledge, ability, and qualifications needed to meet routine parent concerns and expectations. This lack results in fearful overreaction to complaints or concerns. Mediocrity is celebrated as excellence simply because they do not know any better. Money spent here is lost as gifted, high achieving students find themselves behind when transferred to challenging local schools, or worse, unprepared to participate in rigorous math and science programs when they reach university. Sadly, our family's experience with this school was painfully disappointing. We made numerous attempts at reconciliation and were met with hostility. We have not regretted our decision to withdraw. If you are looking for a high quality academic institution that provides a biblical, Christ-centered environment, unfortunately this school cannot not be recommended.
Our experience with this school has been exceptional. Our children transferred to BCS at the beginning of the 2010 school year. BCS offers a superior quality education at the high school level - confirmed for us in the PLAN and ACT scores our children achieved. They offer dual college credits reducing the cost of future higher education. We did not have any exposure or loyalty to a prior administration and have found the current administration to be caring, invested, and effective in providing a well rounded Christian education. The parents are very friendly and actively involved. The high school has a positive energy that is hard to describe. From the moment our kids stepped in the door, they were made to feel welcome by the other kids. They have grown spiritually and academically. The confidence and life skills gained at BCS are truely unique.
When the leadership of the school changed a couple of years ago, the school took a dramatic nose dive. Horrible, unsupportive teachers, a staff that doesn't seem to care unless you donate above and beyond the money you already have to pay, and parents that are VERY cliquish. God forbid your child doesn't "fit in." The best thing I ever did was to pull her out and keep my youngest far away from this school. The only stars I have to give are for the old administration, who have now left.
Not accredited.. Poor staff quality. Not worth the large amount money for the education you receive.
I have been attending Belleview since Pre-K and I think that it is a great school. It is easy to fit in and make friends. The teachers are amazing and very supportive. You can receive extra help because of the small class sizes. The school definitely helps you build up your relationship with the Lord. I do think that there should be more options for sports and extra-curricular activities seeing that we pay the school big bucks. But in the end, I would recommend this school ffor those seeking for a loving Christian school that will prepare you for college.
Our daughter went from public school problem child to presidential honor roll, thanks to the challenging curriculum and the loving teachers and administration at Belleview. They invested in our daughter and we have the happy confident child, successful student, and test scores to prove it.
We have two children enrolled at Belleview, our daughter has attended 4-6th grade and our son pre-school and pre-k. Everything about this school is spot on. The teachers, administration, and parental involvement. The teachers are top notch, all of the teachers we have worked with clearly love what they do, their students and the school community. The administration works hand in hand with the teachers, students and parents, a very positive team approach for education. They have an amazing art program, including their own kiln for pottery. An excellent and up to date computer lab, excellent reading program, the girls basketball team went to state this past year, and the theater program is great as well. Parental involvement is such a vital aspect of this school community that they actually have a designated volunteer coordinator to help get parents plugged into the community!
