I have two students that attend Cedar Creek. I have been very happy with the school and the teachers. Both of my children have had a great experience and are able to get help from the teachers that they were not able to get in public school. I have seen great improvement with both of them. I have a senior and they have been a tremendous help with what's needed to move on to college. I would recommend this school to anyone!

I was formerly a teacher at Cedar Creek and I have to say that despite previous posts by parents, the teachers do genuinely care about the children, their well being and them getting the best education possible. The teachers that are at this school are there because they are committed. They work harder than most schools. They do not have any prep periods, all of their classroom prep is done on their own time. They even eat lunch with the kids. The only reason a teacher would stay at a school where you have to put in so many extra hours than the average schools is because they love the school & children & are completely committed. The school does have quite a bit of children with learning disabilities so the classes tend to move at a slower pace to accommodate the majority of the students learning levels. The school as a whole does not have much money therefore the teachers do the best that they can with the resources that are available to them. Anything the teachers want for their classrooms or their students the teachers go out and spend their personal money to make the learning experience better. To say that the teachers do not care about the students is completely inaccurate.

Please, for the love of God, do NOT send your child to this school. Especially if he/she has adhd, because they certainly don't have time to be dealing with kids who can't sit still. Even though they gladly take the money from the scholarship for kids with special needs, they have NO tolerance for the kids with special needs. Nearly every day my child comes home feeling like he's "bad" because he has a problem sitting still. The teachers, from what I've seen, are grouchy and seem to be unhappy in life in general. When we go on field trips I am the ONLY adult interacting with the children. His teacher told him in front of the whole class "stop going home crying to your mommy that I'm mean to you". Communication is sub-sub par. His grades have plummeted severely. There is no way my child will be attending CCCS next year, I would rather put him in public school and pray that he can catch up academically.

I am a former teacher at this school. The staff are hands on and the level of parent involvement is pretty high considering the number of students that were enrolled. There was a good deal of support for the students as well. I've worked in other public schools and have to say that while no school is perfect, this school does care more overall than many schools I've seen. The teachers are willing to work with the students who want help. The online grading system too helps keep parents informed. The grading system there was easier to read by both parents and teachers. I would rather have my students at this school than at many public schools where children are dropped off by parents and there is no parental involvement. Kudos to Cedar Creek!

I had my daughter in the elementary school and it was terrible. She received no education and when I finally had enough of her having to help other students instead of getting an education herself I changed her to another school. It took her several months to catch up to where she was supposed to be. It was not just her specific teacher either because she was there for two years. My son went to the high school and it was an absolute joke. There was absolutely no communication from the teachers. My son actually failed one of his classes and I was never made aware there were any issues of concern. They do nothing to prepare the kids for college. It's horrible. Most recently I even learned of a coach discussing my sons grades with the football team. This is against the teachers code of ethics but that doesn't surprise me at all. I wouldn't consider any of the staff real "teachers". Oh and the high school literally smells. Seriously. It smells horrible. Do not make the same mistakes I did and send your children here. There are so many better options available.

As a faculty member of Cedar Creek, I recommend this school. I have taught at public and private schools in the past. Cedar Creek far exceeds my previous experience in both the public and private sector. The administration is both professional and caring. The students and their welfare is the number one priority. Having read a previous negative comment left by a disgruntled parent, I would have to strongly disagree with them on every point. Problematic students are dealt with fairly by both the faculty, staff and administration of the school, with discipline issues being handled in the appropriate manner, as outlined in the student handbook. The teachers spend many hours preparing and teaching the students, using both the curriculum, as well as additional resources to enhance the students' learning experience. Not all work completed by students is graded, but is used to give the students practice in the subject. I hope one negative disgruntled parent comment will not deter anyone from checking out Cedar Creek for their child's educational needs. I would highly recommend Cedar Creek Christian School to anyone looking for quality, Christian education for their child.

My son has been going to Cedar Creek since Kindergarden. Up until this year the school has been good but not great. I do not know what the change was this year, but he went from having the kids pick on him and bully him to having the teacher join in. No matter what he did or did not do he would get in trouble. The teacher took other students words instead of investigating. A student kicked him and while the teacher was present and while in a parent teacher conference the teacher denied it even though we had witnesses. After finding out we would be sending him to another school next year because of this teacher she started writing him a referral on my son for at least twice a week. She deviates severely from the curriculum and uses her on books and Bible instead of the ones we had to buy this year. If he told on a child doing something wrong he got in trouble and if they told on him he got in trouble. He would get hurt on the play ground and not 1 accident report was written except when he had a substitute. SHe ripped up papers and threw them in the trash with and without grading them. We went to administration with no results. I would not recommend this school.

I have three daughters that attend Cedar Creek Christina Academy. I love this school!!! They care not just about making sure my children receive overall best education but they also care about my children well being as well. This is a school that I truly recommend for everyone.

I have 2 children in this school. 2012 school year will be their 3 year attending. I continue to be impressed with office staff, school administration, teachers and most of all my childrens attitudes about school and grades!! I would recommend this school for a child who needs a smaller classroom setting, less distractions during school hours and who need close teacher contact with student and parent. My plan is to have both of my children graduate from this outstanding school. Oh yea and they have a great summer school program as well.

My son attended public school last year for 6th grade. Since that time I have enrolled him at CCCS and it was the best thing that I could have ever done. His grades have increase by at least one grade and he know recieves the most important class (BIBLE). No matter where you go, there will always be room for improvement. There are more to come for this school. The Lord has blessed it at this point and we can only pray that the Lord continues to spread his grace on the staff and that he proctects our children and allows them to be great CHRISTIAN leaders of our Nation.

I put my son in this school this year for his sixth grade year because the public schools for middle school were not to my satisfactory. I have been very disappointed with the teacher and her behavior. I have had to speak to administration several times this year regarding her behavior towards the students and my son along with her teaching ethics. I have been very disappointed with the school and will not send my child there next year.

This year, Cedar Creek has gone above and beyond in order to get my child into college. She is dual enrolled and everything possible is being done to prepare her for college life. The staff is cooperative and they are big on communication. They offer one on one tutoring and more after school events and clubs than ever. The principle is honestly concerned about the children and their education.

Cedar Creek and an excellent 2nd half during the 2007-2008 school year. The 2008-2009 school year is looking even better. New teachers, new electives and more students. Expectations are higher. This is the school you want your student in! If you are looking for quality education, excellent moral values, and a school able to meet your individual student's needs, then visit Cedar Creek Christian School. They are raising the bar...acheiving excellence...and ready to meet each and every challenge.

my child has gone through 3 different teachers in this year. this is the first time that my child has been a student. the extra services are acceptable but the there should be more communication between extra services and teachers. like the fact that the scholarship covers all costs so, there is not a extra burden on the parents. more time should be put in the 5th grade students and classes.

excellent, new changes for the better. This school has proven that it is an up and coming great school to Jacksonville. The morals and values that are taught at home are enforced at school. The changes and new staff are for the better. God moves in ways that is for a reason, he has blessed Cedar Creek with wonderful students and teachers.

I have kids that go to school at Cedar Creek. The school has undergone many changes. They have a new principal, vice principal, certified and degreed teachers. So far the communication has been awesome compared to the previous years, as well as great parent/teacher involvement to help the kids move closer to obtain credits to graduate. All staff seem to go above and beyond to help the kids out. All the kids seem to be treated and disciplined EXACTLY the same. They show no favorites which has been a problem in the past. So kudos to the new staff! Great job so far.

Very Disappointed with the way the school is operated. They said they are set up for ADHD. They do not focus on problems. Anytime there is a problem. 'please pick up your child'! etc.I'm Home Schooling next year. Better results.

my son has been attending Cedar Creek for the last year. I am very happy with the way the school is run. The teachers keep me updated on how my child is doing. I like that they use the Abeka program as this challenges the students to work harder.

I have two children there on McKay scholarships they will be graduating soon. This school has done wonders for my children. They would not make it in a public school. I have never had a problem with the teachers. More parents need to get involve with their children. Teachers only can do so much.

My daughter is in her 2nd year of attendance, she is in Jr. High .. on the M/kay schoalarship. I am happy with the school and teachers, the work standard they expect is increased this year, last year I am not sure they were at grade level. I think that they instill good values and morals to the students which to me is alot more than any public school. I would however like a little more communication on progress of my child.

My son has the McKay scholarship and did somewhat ok last year. This year they have doubled the class size and put him with a teacher that does not want to teach. She is unwilling to use the suggestions provided by their own therapists and she has used words such as terrible, and nothing I can do with him. Highly suggest looking at all alternatives before deciding to place a special needs child at this school. They have next to refused to show me what they spend his Mckay dollars on after several requests. My child is isolated from the other students from the moment he walks thru the door.

Our child has attended this school for serveral years under The McKay Scholarship. We've noticed it has been difficult to get teachers to communicate with us regarding our childs progress. As for the schools communication with us regarding the 2006-2007 school year and facility, field trip information, school athletic activities, etc...we've found this lack of communication to be very stressful and try not to convey these feelings of insecurity and uncertainty to our child. It is the middle of July and we still have no clue as to where this school will be having classes. We are quite upset over this issue alone.

Overall, I think this is a good school. There isn't as much on-going communication as I would like about my child's progress, though. I also think there needs to be more individualized instruction. I do think my child is safe there and I do think they strive to instill good moral values in each child.

Yes...i have two children in cedar creek christian school and i think that if they were a little bit nicer to the students they could actually get more work done and do better. My son comes home every day and tells ,me that its toi strict and he doesn't know how anyone could get 10 books done in that kind of environment.
