My child has attended SBCS since she was in kindergarten. This year she will be entering the 6th grade. SBCS has given my child a firm foundation both academically and spiritually.

My children have been attending Stetson for two years and we absolutely love the school. The abeca curriculum is very good and thourough. You can truly see your child learning. They have homework four nights out of the week and tests weekly, versus the public system where little to no homework comes home. I am very impressed with the school, staff and other children. Neither of my children have encountered any bullying of any sort.

My children have been at Stetson for several years and are both A students. Most of the teachers are very caring and attentive especially in the lower levels. However, this will be our last year at Stetson because the quality of the extras that your money should be getting you in private school is not up to par. The Spanish classes are not advancing past basic numbers, colors and days of the week, there is no library available to the students, there is little or no art class, the lunchroom is now in the gymnasium. Stetson used to be above some of the other private schools in the area and I actually drive past 2 other private schools to get to Stetson, but as those schools improve Stetson stays the same or goes down while tuition and book fees go up. Book fees that are paid though the only books I have seen are either used or photocopied handouts for classwork. There have also been some bullying problems the past couple of years though I have not heard of anything so far this year. Very disappointed after some good years at Stetson.

My son has been going to Stetson Baptist since Kindergarten and is an A student. The teachers are great and very caring....but they are NOT your childs parent. It is your responsibility to make sure your child does their homework and teach your child at home not to bully. The teachers can only do so much. This is a great school and worth the money if you can afford it. Whatever school you send your child to it is up to the parents to make sure your child does the right thing. If you cannot take resposiblity for your children, then you are better off sending them to public school.

My child had some issues in the first half of the year, but in the end it was rectified. I am very impressed with the education he's getting at SBCS, and the office staff is so nice and polite. I think I was too quick when I judged the school before, so shame on me :) it's just hard to not jump the gun sometimes when it comes to your children. Also, I love how small and personal the school is - it's a very nurturing environment, and the teacher / parent interaction here is top notch - I get an updates daily, and the teachers here really work hard to accommodate each child s academic needs.

Don't send your kids here! Both my children are having a huge issue with bullying which I find ironic considering this is a baptist school that requires each child to sign a non bullying statement upon being enrolled. The bullying is not your a typical bullying either, it is extreme and serious threats have been made. The principal didn't seem the least bit concerned when it was brought to her attention and has even stated that she couldn't guarentee that I will receive my prepaid tuition for next year! I have already found another school that both of my children will be attending next year refund or not! What a horrible experience to have your kids literally terrified to go to school.

My daughter attends here and she loves it. She is an A student. The teachers are great and you are really getting what you pay for and much more. I am the NEW spanish teacher. I just started the 2010-2011 school year. My students are well beyond colors and numbers. Just this year we have done months, days, school utencils, simple conversation, and telling time and we still have the rest of the year to do more. I suggest you give us a try and stop in and take a look at what we do.

My children have attended Stetson for many years. Through grade five, the quality of education is wonderful. However, upper level is below par, especially in science. Also,book fees go up and the number of reused books go up as well. I wonder where my money goes. There is very little extra-curricular. Computers is just typing and Art is what another mother said - mostly coloring. I also agree with the Spanish comment- several years and only some numbers and colors.

I was very disappointed with this years 'Extras'. My children are solid A students and still do not know any more Spanish then colors and numbers. The library is not available for the children. The art class did little more then coloring.

My daughter has attended this school for 6 years and we love it. There is alot of parent involvement. I feel the children get excellant care from the teachers. The teachers really care about their students and enjoy their jobs. The Christian environment is wonderful. Communication is wonderful. The administrator is very involved and walks around all the time to talk to everyone. Most competitive sports are offered at 4th grade and above. They play against other private schools. I have complete piece of mind while my daughter is at school. It is almost as if the students are with family and friends while in school because it is a pleasant environment. I really like the CHristian guidance that is given also. I highly recommend this school.

Kids are way ahead of the other schools, but it is because they don't let kids be kids... They put too much emphasis and criticism on cursive writing starting in kindergarten. Head start is nice but, why not more emphasis on something important- like math? I feel like they don't respect my time.

My son has attended SBCS for 2 years now. He always loves his teachers, and he has excelled in academic achievement. He is so much more advanced than other children we know who go to public schoools.
