My daughter joined PCCS in 1st grade and is currently in her last year of middle school. She has many great friends and the other parents are wonderful. We do not attend church, but have found the school to be very accepting. My daughter has grown to be a young lady that is able to make wise decisions from the base teaching at PCCS. The classes are small so she is able to get ample attention from the teachers. We have heard several stories of bullying at the feeder pattern schools in our area, but our daughter is fortunate to not have experienced bullying at PCCS. The teachers go above and beyond!

I have 3 children currently at this wonderful school. I have a daugther graduating in 2 weeks and 2 boys in lower grades. What a wonderful ,nurturing school. This school is welcoming of all faiths and of all learning styles. You will not find a better education for your money in this area. The teachers are so committed to these children. I would encourage you to visit this school and see for yourself. I have been extremely pleased. There are some opportunities for improvement in administration as with all schools, nothing is perfect. But this is pretty darn close!!!

My daughter has been so lucky to attend PCCS. She has a few favorite teachers and a great best friend. However, the middle school bullying is alive and well at this school. There are a few girls that have made my daughter's time at this school horrible. I have complained many times to the principal, but it still continues. My advice to parents looking to send their daughters to this school: if your child is popular and perfect and a Christian, you are golden. If your child has learning differences and was not raised in a strict Christian household, then be prepared to be ostracized. The middle school mom's are a clique that rule the parking lot.

The fact that they teach children that the bible is inerrant is frankly horrifying.

WE ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS SCHOOL!!! The curriculum is tops. The faculty and administration really have a heart for the children. They are always looking for ways that they can make their programs better and more comprehensive. If you want your child to have an excellent education, in a caring nurturing environment, PCCS is a must see. The only negative to PCCS is that it is PK-8 rather than PK-12.

Before coming to PCCS, I taught in the public system for fourteen years. I am so thankful that God has given me the opportunity to teach in a Christian school that accepts children of all faiths. The teachers are nuturing, the children love to learn, and the parents are so supportive. I have learned that when everyone is involved, education works!

I've moved away from the area recently but in my first year of middle school i atteneded PCCS, I must say it was a great experience. Fabulous teachers, great sports program, and an excellent performing arts department that includes a drama club, chior, band, and juinor and senior bells group. Plus, PCCS was a great faith experience for me, you child won't regret the experiences they had there, throughtout everything the teachers were fantastic. Academically, spiritually, and fun-wise your child will enjoy their time at PCCS, I know I did!

I have two children at PCCS, and my first started there in 1999. PCCS has provided my children with a high quality, nurturing, faith-based education. The teachers create an exciting environment for learning and show they care about students as individuals. I highly recommend PCCS.

Whatever your faith background, you won't be disappointed by this school. The academic standard is high, the love for the children is amazing and the standard of excellence is set everyday by the teachers and staff.

After homeschooling our 5 children for the last 6 years, we enrolled them at Pike Creek Christian school, and we were so glad we did! They had a great year. We found the teachers to be kind and encouraging. The academic standards were high and challenging, yet attainable. Our children particularly enjoyed weekly chapel, drama club, computer class and the hand bell choir. We highly recommend this school!

We have been extremely pleased with Pike Creek Christian! Not only is the school academically challenging but also exceptionally nuturing. My children have had consistently excellent teachers and my daughter was very well prepared for a very academically rigorous high school. After school activities such as drama, sports, music and art have been very enriching. I highly recommend this school.

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.
