This is my sons second year at Countryside and I could not be happier. The teachers are wonderful. They are patient and kind. They are firm and discipline behaviors when needed and it is not a one size fits all. The front office staff are amazing and Mr David has been an enormous blessing in our lives! Even though it is a private school it doesn't feel like they are run by money. So many times you run into a private school and all they want to do is make you pay for everything and beg for money. I am so happy with this school!

Both my children transferred from a Public school to Countryside Christian last year and we could't be happier. This is a wonderful environment for learning, both intellectually and spiritually. The teachers and staff have wonderful relationships with the students. The students are taught not only reading and writing but also how morals come in to play in their everyday lives.

If you are looking for a positive Christian environment than CCS is an excellent school for that purpose, however they do not have the highest quality of programs for science, art, music, or drama. They have an excellent sports program and great after school care for only $4 per hour until 5:30. The teachers are top notch and they really care about their students, doing whatever it takes for them to succeed. The atmosphere of the school is like a big extended family. There is a uniform which I love, and a strict discipline policy. Overall I think CCS is an excellent school with students coming out very well prepared for college. They use Abeka curriculum for K4-2nd and ACE curr. for grades 3-12, which is where the child works at their own pace based on a rewards system (it's kinda like homeschool in a public setting).

Excellent School! I have two children attending there this year (grades pre-k and 5th) and I have been really impressed. The teachers are really devoted and there for the right reasons. Good environment with adequate facilities and space. Sports programs may be few but, the word of God is presented daily in interesting and exciting ways. Both of my girls are very happy there. It's the perfect place for them.

Wonderful school devoted to the childrens moral and educational development. Great parent/teacher interaction and low student teacher ratio. Only disadvantage is lack of a sports program for the younger grades and preschool. Girls have ballet and tap at all ages, but nothing for boys until the upper levels. Still, a wonderful school with a great curriculum.

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.
