Teacher effectiveness: Somewhat effective
July 27, 2015
This school started as a great Christian school and Ministry a long time ago, but sadly goats join the school and did lots of damage. And because kids are being taught in schools that man came from a monkey and other things that is against our faith, that G-d created us, that is why kids needs a school curriculum that is in agreement with our faith and spiritual teachers that sees teaching in a Christian school as a ministry not a classroom. For parents who believes school is school, and Church is Church, there are private schools that aren't Christian, Charter schools, regular Public schools that you can always send your children to, and about Church- you can take your children to Church on Saturdays or Sundays which one is your Sabbath. But to parents who want their children to be stronger in Christ, they need a good Christian school that knows how to teach the way the Bible teaches, because nowadays parents are working hard to support their family, and they want to decrease the chances that their kids are misled by bad association or educators who teaches against our G-d, this school needs prayer. And at the end of the school day- your children will be influence by what they learn. So Be Careful. Blessings to everyone.

Helping and teaching students to become strong Spiritual Christians, doesn't mean you have to overlook the academics, only someone who lacks education will say something like this. There are many Strong Christians who are highly educated, and there are many Christian Schools that have a strong Christian foundation, and are very high in academics. Where there is balance- There were be students on fire for the LORD, and also very highly educated. But at the end of life- Education fades away, you only will take your Salvation! I felt that the previous comment was offensive to Christians, by saying that overlooked academics, to be a full Christian. This school ran a Discovery Program years ago, that charged lots of money to the parents, but it wasn't legal, they couldn't even give you a letter to give to a real licensed therapist, because they were afraid.

Good school. Very loving and caring teachers. I'm a teacher myself in the public schools, so I can tell you that it's certainly not the same experience. The school has great communication with parents, I receive email daily. Lots of extra curricular opportunities for the children. It is a Christian school and we find they have a good balance of teaching Christian values but teaching CORE CURRICULUM. At the end of the day, it's SCHOOL not CHURCH. If you're looking for a full on infused Christian school where academics are over looked- go elsewhere like some of the other reviewers mentioned. I've NEVER heard anything ill spoken from any teacher there. In fact, just the opposite. Any issue that does arise, the school is very receptive to listening and making changes. Our daughter loves it there.

The more I see the educational fruits of this school, the more upset I get. This school is more about prestige than Christian. I know I wasted sooooooo much money on this D- school. And out of mercy, I don't rate it F-! And No One can tell me how wonderful Christian school this is, because I met so many people in this school, and I believe they are more like Pharisees, I once heard a teacher saying to another teacher, she would sell her soul to the devil, what kind of Christian will even play with something like this? I am very hurting with things I have found out about this school. Been here for years. Know so many things. I leaving this school, Calvary Christian is more likely to be more Christian, I have heard good word of mouth from other parents.

Based on my experience in this school for years, it is an okay school for academics, but for faith- I saw and heard things through the years from a few of the teachers, and etc, that I don't think it is a great spiritual place. There are teachers there now, that have pagan's beliefs and I heard it from their mouths. That it is why to me, it not a great Christian place. They do attend church and serve in their home church according to what they have said. Hopefully, the LORD will convict them from those beliefs. I am glad for the parents that have had a better experience, and it is still better than public school.

I am a former CSCA parent. My children graduated from the school. They both attend college and are doing well. But more important is the character they have as young men. CSCA helped to build their character. I think the current Administration is making positive changes which needed to be made. No school is perfect. I have observed much less favoritism than the previous administration. Good Luck CSCA. Continue teaching and caring for God's precious children.

Sweet and precious school, with solid academics and the presence of the Holy Spirit. The new Headmaster is clearly making decisions led by his heavenly Father - hard ones - that are for the betterment of the school. This school is absolutely going through a period of transition - no question - but is heading in the right direction.

This school has its ups and downs areas, but it is still the best school in this area. I have visited different schools looking for something better, because of its down areas, but I have come to the final decision, so far, till now it's the best in Coral Springs. I believe the LORD is removing teachers and staff that don't bear good fruit, but we have to keep praying for this school.

As a parent, I am very disappointed with the experience at CSCA this year. The academic program is very basic and does not meet the needs of advanced students. There is a culture of gossip and unprofessionalism among the staff and administration. Bullying is a significant problem in the upper school.

Dear readers ,i am slightly disapointed at the comments of some of our fellow Christian parents.I have never experienced christianity with the beauty of private school all in one.The teachers are patient and beautiful,coaches are dynamic and last but not least the Headmaster is a class act, kind, respectful and protective of our children.I don't bother with the inner politics or gossip,thats not what i send my children there for, i wanted my children to excel and receive top education and by the grace of god they have.My dear readers i am not here to stroke no ones ego but more so to set the record strait.I am a proud overprotective parent of three and i will send them there next year.So stop the hating and slandering. One of the quotes i learn from the school is "By pointing at the splinter in someones eye we fail to see the log in our own".Its not exactly word for word but bare with me.I mean no offence and i say these thing's with all do respect.God bless our teachers, principle's, faculty an staff but above all, our children. P.s.Thank you C.S.C.A. teachers and parents for a wonderful experience.

I do not know if they complains I read in this site are at the Secondary level, but my 2 children started attending Elementary School here and we are having a great experience. Teachers are professional and loving, leadership is strong and approachable, and the academics are strong, especially the Math. They have many specials that are taught by professionals, hence, my children are really learning fundamentals of art, music, Latin, etc. These are not just "fun" subjects; these are academic. I am impressed.

I am a parent that has children that attend this school. They have been attending for a number of years. However, I am in the process of making a change. During our time here, I have been very involved in the school and find that there is a lot of favoritism based on family income, the number of children you have enrolled and how much you do for the school. I have found that children attend because they can afford to go (many not paying) rather than for a Christian education. I don t think that the academics are as good as they should be either. My kids get A's without studying and barely bring home any homework. The school is dirty (cafeteria smells and is infested with ants) and the teachers seem to have lost their love of teaching. The moral standards do not seem to be followed by the entire student body with the punishment system not being equal for all. In addition, the gossip runs ramped there with both parents and staff not showing Christian behavior. Although it is true that no one school is perfect, expectations should be higher for a Christian school. Sadly, for a lot of parents, these expectations aren t being met

My daughter attended this school last year for Kindergarten and it was an excellent experience. I will say that i am not one of those parents with a "big bank account" and never felt my child was treated any differently. She excelled there and we fell in love with the teachers. One critism-many activities are held during working hours which makes it difficult for working parents to attend...which suck for the children. They could be more considerate of working families in that respect. Other than that the school is great!

I am suprised by the negative comments. Dr. Bryan is a blessing to the school and our children and is commited to educational excellence. My daughter is excelling in every subject and was reading before entering kindergarten, she is now moving on to the first grade and is reading at a third grade level and far more advanced then other children I know who attending public school. The amazing thing is that usually you have that one child who shines, however every child in her class has had the seem academic success. The teachers are outstanding educators and loving Christians as well!

This is our second year at the school and both of our children our thriving. I had very high expectations when starting at this school and they have been exceeded. My son knows the bible better than I do and he is only six. The academics are challenging, which is why we have our children there. The new headmaster Dr Bryan is doing a great job and I am looking forward to more positive changes from him. My wife and I work work extra hard to afford this school and it is worth it. CSCA should definitely be on your list when looking at different schools in the area.

This is an incredible school filled with teachers that sincerely care about the students in their classrooms. There are both excellent athletics at the school and performing arts as well. For those reviews that are coming from middle school students it is slightly ridiculous for them to be on here, and for the reviews slandering the school by calling it dirty or the staff a fake, the plethora of reviews praising the school clearly rebut it. From preschool through 12th grade, this is a wonderful Christian environment for children to be raised.

this school is challenging but if you transfer from a different school, its too challenging.You find yourself checking homework untill 11:00 and waking up do to do it all over again. You get treated by how much money your family has how many siblings are in the school and what race you are not just by students. There's too much favoritism towards rich people. So you dont get treated like you should it may seem like it in the first few months but it wears off like a warranty or something. I am hopefully going to a new middle school next year I hope you take this seriously :)

I am very surprised by all the extreme negative comments mentioned here. No private school could thrive in any community if they were true. Our children have been attending the elementary school for the past 6 years and we cannot find evidence of the negative claims mentioned here. We are African American and have not experienced any discrimination from the faculty. CSCA provides a loving and disciplinary environment where the children can learn academically and grow spiritually. They continually look to better all the learning programs. I would highly recommend them.

The teachers and staff dedicated and caring. The class size and school size is a perfect size. It is small enough to offer the students personalized attention and provide a family atmosphere, but large enough to offer many clubs, sports, great music programs and a wide variety of classes.

CSCA has been our school home for 10 years. Both of my children have been here since Kindergarten and have been challenged in every aspect of their education. They love it here and as a parent I know that they are loved and cared for by the teachers & staff here. The campus is older and therefore may not look as clean as some of the newer state run and paid for school, but what it lacks in newness, it makes up for in family atmosphere and quality of education.

Great school, I'm not sure where it is lacking in cleanliness as mentioned in prior posts. The teachers love the subjects they teach and try to pass that on to the students. Send your child here, or at least check it out.

We found the teachers to be very caring and the school community as a whole to be very friendly. Our daughter was there for 5 years; our son for 10. I did not find the campus to be dirty, it's just an older facility. Parents are given a great deal of 'voice' in the way things are done, but then if their kid gets disciplined there are sometimes 'sour grapes.' In my opinion, that's why some of these reviews are so negative...

As parents who were looking for the best educational and christian facilty for our child, we were highly disappointed when CSCA failed to meet our expectations. Thankfully, we took a big leap of faith and severed our ties from this school. The facility and staff have a lot to be desired, it is dirty and the teachers seemed to have lost their love of teaching. The moral standards do not seem to be followed by the entire student body with the punishment system not being equal for all. Although it is true that no one school is perfect, your expectations are higher for a Christian school that professes to develop the whole child. Our child is now excelling in a public school setting and for the first time enjoying school. In closing, I would just say take a really close look at this school before getting involved. The facade is nice...and then that's it.

My children have been at CSCA for 5 years. Both my children and us are very pleased with their progress. They are well rounded and inspired both acadeically and spiritually. This school offers a warm family atmoshphere. Everyone from the staff to fellow students and parents are approachable. Your child is a person not a number in this school. We look forward to our children graduating from CSCA.

Our family has been at CSCA for 8 years and 2 years at the preschool before that. We couldn't be happier with the education our children are receiving both academic and spiritual. The teachers are highly qualified and use their individual creativity to be able to teach children at all different levels. We find that the administration is extrememly approachable and have personally experienced a situation that needed to be handled immediately and were quite happy to see that our concerns were taken seriously and the situation handled quickly. I would highly recommend this school. As a parent, one of my favorite things about CSCA is the true feeling of being a part of a school family.

My husband and I never thought we would have to take our child out of a Coral Springs public school and go private but that is exactly what we had to do when my oldest son was in first grade. The public school was not meeting our child's needs so we looked to Coral Springs Christian for his education and spritual needs and could not be more happier. The teachers and staff made my son feel right at home and loved and his accomplishments have soared. He has grown into a honor student through the love and care of teachers and staff. My younger son attendes CSCA as well and also has grown into a honor student. I don't think many parents can say that their kids like to go to school but both my kids look forward to going to school because the teachers make learning fun.

We have 3 children who are attending CSCA. When we moved to S. Fla. 5 years ago, I was extremely apprehensive and did not feel this was the best environment for raising children. CSCA was and is what has made the difference. It has been a blessing for our family. Our oldest son is graduating this year and was accepted to 5 excellent colleges. I feel he has thrived in this environmment and is totally prepared for college. We also have a middle schooler and previously an elementary student, so we have experienced all aspects of the school. I will be the first to tell you it is not perfect. I don't think any school is perfect, but I think CSCA offers some amazing opportunities in a Christian, family atmosphere. I also think they are continually striving to improve.

I pulled my children out of this school. My sister and four of my friends have as well. School has gotten to be all about money and not about the students. Staff is uncaring & teachers are burned out. Campus is unclean. Not much good I can say about it at all. My daughter came home with hives every day because she hated the school so much. I have found that children attend because they can afford to go rather than for a Christian education. My children are now receiving a better education in public school & are now interacting with Christian students more than at CSCA as they are involved in First Priority, Meet at the Pole, etc. I wouldn't waste my money sending your children to this school. A better alternative is Highlands Christian Academy for private or public school if you live in the boundaries for one.

The fact that this school claims to have higher academic standards than public school is a farce. The teachers are uninspiring and any complaints to the administration fall on deaf ears. I also agree with a previous reviewer that the 'spiritual' aspect leaves much to be desired.

I would have to rate this school as mediocre at best. The academics are not as great as the school claims. My kids get A's without studying. There is rarely any homework, the kids are not welcoming to newcomers, the parents are wrapped up in their own cliques, and the conditions on campus are dirty. I know it is an outreach school, but the spiritual environment is appalling and my kids tell of students being downright disrespectful to teachers, including using curse words in class. Most teachers seem fairly qualified but are not good at passing along their knowledge to inspire the kids or even get them to learn.

Second best to a ghetto school? In life, our children will be expected to follow the rules and laws of our society, or there will be consequences - as a parent, I want my child to realize this. Stealing, cheating, disrespect, lying, drugs, bullying, etc. should not be tolerated in any school setting. The beauty of private school, is that they can expel students that refuse to live up to the school's moral standards.

Coral Springs Christian Academy is overall a truly mediocre school.

My child is a new student to the 9th grade. So far, we couldn't be happier. Good parental involvement, friendly and helpful staff, most teachers are of a high quality. Love the small classes, although enrollment is increasing every year due to the fact that there arent' many choices for private high schools locally. I moved to the area for the public schools, and found that I wouldn't send my child to any of them! This school has a wonderful and diverse student body, school spirit, high academic expectations, and they expect you to live up to their standards of morals and character. The religion is not 'over the top' - and discipline issues are taken seriously. A great experience so far. I highly recommend this school.

I cannot imagine a more wonderful school than this to send my children to. Last year, I pulled my 15 year old son out of a Stoneman Douglas High School because his grades were dismal, and he seemed to be getting no direction from his teachers. Moreover, there was no structure at the school and parent-teacher communication was virtually non-existent. The focus was entirely on FCATs. Thankfully, I decided to enroll my son in CSCA and the transformation has been unbelievable! My son has been taking challenging courses and has been on the Academic Honor Roll all year. Moreover, he has participated in Chorus and in the school's Spring play. He is active and happy at hia school and enjoys every minute spent there. The academics are challenging but the teachers and school environment are nurturing and personal. They care about their students and engage them at every level. It's great!
