I had to take my child out of this school this year. This school lacks a good administration and teachers! It is extremely disorganized! I can agree with some of the previews reviews when it comes to the curriculum. This school uses ABeka, which is an amazing curriculum but are the teachers teaching this correctly?! My child would come home with a bunch of worksheets from the book, which should of been done and taught in the classroom but the teacher would send them home for H.W. without even explaining them. My child's teacher had no classroom management skills at all! Notes were sent home constantly complaining about my child talking in class. When I would speak to the other moms from the class, they were also getting notes sent home as well almost everyday. The teacher did not know how to control the kids.

This school has changed over the last few years for the worse. It's sad to say that parents pay so much money for their child's education and none of the teachers are qualified or certified by the state of Florida. The school lunch is horrible! My child wasn't able to eat the school lunch all year long. The school administration does not know how to run a school and they are very unprofessional. You would think a christian school would be administered in a different fashion.

This school has changed for the worse. There is so much bullying. The office people do not help. I can't believe the bad way this school has become. I'm very sadden by this. This is not a real christian school.

Please we all know who making the negative comments it was not the staff in the office it was the principal and her daughter who were rude. The school is great now that they are not there.


Posted October 6, 2013

This school is a disappointment. I removed my 3rd grader after they close down middle school and I couldn't leave my 7th grader. I am a teacher of the public school system and Asbury is behind on education, and technology. The 3 ladies in the office are always lost and rude. Parents keep away this school is constantly changing for the worse.

Asbury is an excellent school. Period. The commentator below is incorrect... my son has attended this school for several years now and I check the reviews from time to time. There have NEVER been any negative reviews. Administration is honest, caring, and fair! I am a public school teacher, and the reading program used by this school far exceeds our curriculum. Unfortunately, I've seen many students reach upper grade levels in my public school and can not read a word. Children that attend Asbury from a young age learn to read before Kindergarten!

I find it interesting that whenever a parent makes a negative comment, it mysteriously disappears. Where are the comments from the last 2 years? I know there were several. This speaks volumes about the honesty of the administration.

Asbury Christian School is an excellent school. My son is in PreK-4 with Ms. Tania (who is very caring, organized, and creative!), and at 4 yrs old, knows all his letters, numbers up to 20, how to write his first and last name, and is reading blends. The curriculum is EXCELLENT and students WILL know how to read by the end of Kindergarten!

This is an excellent school. The Principle, Teachers and the all the Helpers everyone will get to know you and your child. Your childs learning is their number one goal. All of their curriculum is completely advanced compared to any other public school, or even some private schools. I know because I have done my resereach. This school should difinitley be a K-12 school. Even the food is great, made fresh everyday for the kids.

As a public school teacher, I can tell you that Asbury has a great academic program. Their reading curriculum is well above that of public school. Student teacher ratio is low which helps students stay focused and engaged in learning. The tuition rates are also reasonable compared to many other schools. The school lacks extracurricular activities for the students such as chess but it makes up for it in many other areas.

I have no complaints about this school at all. My boys are attending their fourth year at Asbury. Everyone that knows my boys are extremely impressed with their level of education. I highly recommend this school to anyone that has a child at elementary school level.

my children saw this as a second home, plus they got an excellent education at the same time

Both of my sons attended this school for the last school year. They have learned so much and are far more advanced than other children their age that attend public school. I am very confident that they have a good foundation that will carry them throughout their education. The school pricing is also very reasonable. I highly recommend this school.

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.
