I have two children that are enrolled in this school and they both doing very well. The school's focus is strong on fundamentals and it works. The teachers are motivated and engage the students and we receive regular reports on our children's progress. The school is Christian and has a very strong Christian focus, for example they have Chapel on Fridays. Many of the students don't seem to come from Christian families but it doesn't seem to be a problem.

This is a great school my son goes here this is his first year in pre-k he just turned 5 years old but when he was 4 and started his first school ever was scared worried nervous mainly because I have always took care of my son It was harder on me than him. But the teachers at this school is amazing my son wasn't good at first. Let's say he was hyperactive and didn't want to listen or sit still he was a little bit of a class clown. But the teachers keep with him and and showed him things like counting,math, writing, abc, reading, singing, sign language how to be kind to others, friendship,respect, And the biggest thing of all that they teach my son is about god and how he died for our sins. My son is 5 now and he had made a huge change the boy who started out hyper. Is not my son I see today he great in his classroom now everyday I get good reports from his teacher. It makes me feel great because I know I made the right choice by bringing him to cornerstone Christian school. The teachers are amazing and they really care about the kids and about their education. I hope I'll be able to have Alfonso come back next year because I don't want to send him anywhere else. :-)

This is a wonderful school with great teachers. My 3 children have attended this school since my oldest was in kindergarten.She is now in 3rd grade. My children are always on the Honor Roll, love going to school everyday, and get a great education. The teachers give one on one attention to the students when they have trouble with something. My children are in a positive environment and I do not have a single complaint. My children will be attending this school through 12th grade. My 3rd grader is learning things that public school is teaching 5th graders! It is sad that the previous family had such trouble at this school. I personally have not seen nor heard of any of the instances they referred to and I am very involved with my children's education. Each of their teachers take time out anytime to discuss how they are doing academically as well as with their peers. They care very much for each and every student. I HIGHLY recommend this school!

My son started attending Cornerstone when he was 4 years old and is now entering 7th grade. he has always loved going to school and I find the teachers caring, compassionate and great educators. My favorite part of the school is how well the students treat each other. They really foster an attitude of caring for one another and he has received a great education as well as Christian education.

My son is 8 years old and hes been in Cornerstone for 5 years and the school is magnificant. I've been in the Dunedin and Clearwater area 31 years and have attended Sandylane Elementary, Dunedin Middle and Dunedin High and I can say the decision on Cornerstone has been the best decision ever. My sons in 2nd grade and he consistently makes honor roll. He started write in cursive in Kindegarden it was remarkable! He writes stories better then I do. The class sizes are very small. Yet they have so many activities, just as many field trips as any other school. Were also in the Dunedin Christmas parade every year and get to ride the float. Its GREAT! Teachers stay over to tutor kids at no extra charge. My son spends 2 hours in after care as well and also finishes his homework by the time I pick him up

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.
