Princeton Christian School has a hometown feel and everyone is part of their student/teacher/parent community. My children enjoy learning and the teachers are very well attuned to each student's potential.
I'm reviewing as an alumni with enough distance looking back to really form an opinion of my experience & how it has prepared me for life. Transferring from public school, I felt at the time that it afforded me more of the opportunity to grow academically in a safe environment. I soon realized that if I didn't behave as the 'popular' kids behaved that I would be bullied without intervention. I remember thinking it was odd that quite a few of the alumni would come back as faculty. I realize that despite best efforts from perhaps 1 or 2 staff, no one prepared these kids for life beyond HS. The grading systems are such that even if you were valedictorian, the best college you'd qualify for was a state school. Of my graduating class: 2 went to FL colleges, 3 went to MDCC for only 2yrs (& 2 came back to work as staff), 5 or 6 had run-ins with the law & the rest found min. wage jobs. I give this school 2 stars because of the handful that I can say shaped me into the person I am today. PCS has the potential of being truly great, however the inexperienced faculty, the scare methods at chapel and poor grading systems hold back all involved from reaching their full potential.
Don t be fooled, they do not always act like Christians! The principal and the Board of Directors have handled situations very poorly, in an extremely un-Christian manner, and in a very mean-spirited way. They have failed to understand that all people deserve to be treated equally with dignity and respect (they are RUDE), they have made extremely unethical, inept and un-Christian choices (they are INCOMPETANT), the bookkeeper is incompetent, and they try to cover up bad behavior of teachers rather than reaching out to the parents to try to come to an amicable solution. Instead of doing everything they can to help each student reach their full potential, they have made choices that actually ADVERSELY affect student s education goals!!! I am very sorry that my child ever attended. Fortunately, I serve a God who is still in the business of restoring and redeeming and He turned what this school meant for evil around for my child. Pulling my child out of this school s hostile and unhealthy environment to pursue other options has (with God s help) turned out far better than I ever expected it could have!!!
The school is decent. The curriculum leaves something to be desired as they only offer honors classes in high school which isn't the best option for every student. My recent dealings with the Principal, Board of Directors and bookkeeper has left me with an extremely bad taste in my mouth. They do not act like Christians at all, they are rude, do not answer questions directly unless asked multiple times and seem to be far more concerned with money than the students. They knew my family has gone through a very traumatic event but never once did anyone say "we are keeping your family in our prayers" or express any kind of understanding whatsoever. Since my son will be graduating soon and has friends there, he will be staying, but if he was younger I would definitely be looking for another school.
I like it it's way better than going to the public schools in the area, I don't know why people say it's bad it's a good school!
