I think the school should have given her a warning that they saw the post and in Christian love forgive ,forget and go on. This gives a horrible name to Christianity .

The parents who are writing these horrible comments about the school are upset. This school is awesome. Instead of getting on Facebook and venting how about doing what a mother does and go to the school and speak with the faculty and staff face to face. She bad mouthed the school and they have a right to kick her kid out if she's that unhappy. This is a private school!

Reinstate the 4 yr old that you expelled for no reason now, or I will personally file federal charges against the school and administration. You also must issue a public apology to the mom for the wrongful act, in a public news conference.

i can only assume the parent was correct in her assessment of the school performance there really is a paucity of good performance in most organizations

I think this school really showed any form of Chrisitanity when they expelled a 4 year old because Mom vented about the school and teachers on Facebook. Really disappointing. And if you are so thin skinned I wonder what you are really hiding at your school. Makes me really say hmmm

One look at the website of this school it's obvious that a mega church is behind it. Hmmmm, not for profit!? The schools homepage has all these great events and fund raisers, yes a lot of fund raisers, only one event is not a fund raiser actually. Wonder if the school or owner of the school gets a cut.....that would be a sin so probably not. The website is perfect and pretty similar to others, it's just coincidence I'm sure. Oh well at least it's 99% white cuz otherwise someone would be in jail.......thank god!

Petty administration with false Christian values. School exercised their right to expel a 4 yo because of his mother's frustration. The school's reaction really proved the mother's point.

I absolutely love this school for my children! The staff is very nice, polite, and always available! I do not go to church however my children has grown so much academically and spiritually! The school not only appreciates and cares about the students but parents as well!

If I could rate this school higher I would. The negative comments that are left are NO way and in no shape or form accurate. I put my two boys in this school last yr and this yr. I have had NO issues what so ever. Of course with any school you are going to have the rebellious ones and the ones that have no respect for others that is not the schools fault. It does exceptional. This years motto is NOT AT MY SCHOOl... for elementary and EDIFY to lift up one another in the middle and high school. I am a very large part of my childrens school going. I have known of parents that have had problems. BUT just because it is a Chrisitan school does not mean that the children and adults are Christians and behave as such. They handle issues as they come and I am there quite a bit and there is NO problems that is so horrible to take out the child. Academically, my children have learned more this past year than they did the first few in public. It is well worth it if you as a family do not tollerate fighiting, bullying etc. THIS SCHOOL IS AWESOME AND STRIVE FOR THE BETTERMENT OF THE CHILDREN. ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS SCHOOL..... LOVE IT!!!!!!

Have two children that attend here and are very pleased with their studies. The staff and teachers go out out of their way for the safety of the children and not once have I felt not welcomed at the school. They encourage parents on campus and as a father to me that is a plus. Parents need to do their part also. The school has been a wonderful asset to our family academically and spirtually. Thank you to the staff for all you do and we will do our part to help make the school the best it can be. Awesome job!!! Awesome school.

I have sent my children to this school over the years. I feel like I need to speak up. I think they are doing wonderful in some ways but in others, well...not so great. Some of the staff need customer service training. Each time I go by , I leave with the feeling that THEY are the customer and it is all about them. I have had one peson speak quite rduely to me. They have lost my paperwork/attchmetns more than once. You call and come by and each time they are "busy" and it is not a good time. WHEN IS???? I feel like a "bother" to them. It is like going to Wal-mart to shop for the first time, when you have always gone to Publix. I feel like I have had enough. I can honeslty say I will never take my children here again. EVER.

EyI have two children in this school and it has been the worst experience EVER!!!! They treat my children like they are a red headed step child. They only listen to your concerns if you go to their church. My children have been picked on my daughter called fat numerous times....she is in vpk....and she is not fat..even if she was it is not very Christianly to belittle a child. My son is treated even worse....he has been physically hurt by other children in his class and when he brought it to the teachers attention she told him she does not like tattle tails......REALLY????? The last straw was when they took them out to PE and did not provide water before or during and it was 80 degrees outside....and the children had on their uniforms...when I brought this to the principles attention she proceeded to tell me that they water the children when PE is over. WHAT???? My son is not a plant. Please do your research first. Also, for some reason they teach that r makes the sound "er" L says "ool" and that M says "mmm". When did the Campbell's soup commercial become our phonics lesson.....

My daughter is attending the vpk program. She's only been in a couple of months and has learned so much. Thanks to the wonderful teachers and staff!

If you want a school that will not listen to you or your concerns, this would be the school for you. My daughter spent 1 semester here before I yanked her from this place. If you want to be talked at instead of talked to, this is your place. This is not a school, it is a joke. I STRONGLY recommend you do your research and keep records of EVERYTHING!!! Make copies. It will benefit you in the end!!!

My daughter just spent three years in Sonshine Christian Academy. It was a good experience and a blessing. This is a good school for children who benefit from a smaller school and more individual attention. The teachers are caring and truly emanate the standards of the Gospel.

I do not know one student who is happy here. Few staff members are helpful, and the curriculum is ignored. After transferring schools, my child found they were far behind. While supposed to be shining the light of God, they are simply scaring the students away from the truth by being overbearing.

I have watched my grandchildren grow academically and in their faith in Jesus Christ while attending Sonshine Christian. I could not ask for a better school for them to be in, or for their mother to teach in. I would give this school a 5 star rating.

My daughters began attending Sonshine in 4th, 6th, and 8th grades. I was fearful at first thinking how would they adjust. The staff was amazing, the curriculum is excellent.

SCA is the best!!! My son attended from K-3 until 9th grade. Very devoted to the children and their needs. We have enrolled my daughter in VPK and now Kindergarten. We highly recommend. They are not afraid to love your child and pray with and for them...God bless them. T.Tapley

My children have been attending Sonshine for the past 4 years. In my opinon this is the best school around. Lots of one on one attention and spiritual guidance. The communication between the teachers and parents is fantastic. The teachers are not just teachers but mentors, examples of God's grace and mercy.
