was a good school at best when it was still Brevard Christian. now that it's Bethany Ministries, they have shifted, unannounced to their paying clients, from A Beka to Bob Jones and will no longer prepare a child for college, but build future missionaries for their church. I would give this "ministry" as they refer to it, negative stars if option was available.

I love the Preschool! . The teachers are wonderful, professional and loving. The Director is available and is very active with the students. I love checking the web site for my child's work and slide shows of what happened at school. I feel like my child has received a top quality education this year.My child has learned to read this year. The work is challenging but fun. Parents are welcome to participate and observe the classes. Chapel is just awesome to watch. All the children singing and dancing. Even Grandma gets involved in school and enjoyed Grandparents day. My child does not want to leave school at the end of the day. I look forward to seeing the VPK graduation program.

I went to this school from 1st grade to the middle of my 10th grade year when I asked my parents to please take me out and let me attend a public school. I had always been told that I was receiving a superior education and that I was far beyond those other students in the public schools. BCS could not have been any more wrong! When I switched to Melbourne High School, I was immediately behind by about a year and a half. The teachers were more qualified, experienced, and there were fewer behavioral issues in the public school, which shocked me. My parents thought that sending me to BCS would protect me from things that I might experience in an environment that wasn't "Christian". The reality was that BCS accepted students that were some of the worst classmates I ever had. I feel bad for the amount of money that my parents wasted at BCS for a sub-par education. If I could go back, I would probably just ask to attend public school.

Brevard Christian school is a fully accredited Christian school where every child is known by name. The teachers care about each student's individual needs. It has a family friendly atmoshere that promotes partnerships with parents to help children grow academically, spiritually, socially, and physically. Truly a Bibical approach that can be seen every day.

Small K-12 school with small classes,great teachers,wonderful after school programs. This is a small Christian school that is trying to make a difference in the community, by furnishing a good education for all its students on a shoe string budget. They really could use the help!!

I am a previous teacher of the school. When I first started working there I was unsure of the school myself other than that the teacher really cared about the students and loved God!! Things have truely changed over the past few years. I heard that they are no longer going to be using the Abeka which will help alot with accademics and all the teachers are accredited which someone has said they were not. There was a time this may have not been the case but they are now and they are all great teachers! The school is showing major improvements and I am thinking of sending my children. Before I would have given a lower rating but things have truely changed!!

Brevard Christian school is an excellent school. My child has learned to read in k4. The teachers are friendly, loving and live out their Christian beliefs. This is a school where teachers actually pray with students and parents.The school is very family oriented and I often participate in the volunteer program. I like knowing my children are learning and happy while they are at school.

I am a former student at BCS it was a fun when I was ^ but now when I look back at it brevard Christian it not the best school in brevard county. A lot of things they said they would have like P.E the coach would never show up same with Music class once I order a recorder to play in music everyone had one except myself they kept saying it will be here next week it never came. At brevard Christian I always found myself disapointed I am sorry i would not recommend this school.

The academics have never had a good reputation particularly in the Jr High and up. The Elementary teachers were all replaced a year ago and that should tell you something is not right there either. The best thing about the school used to be the athletic program and now it is the worst excuse for a high school program anywhere! If this school doesn't get it's full accreditation back (The one it lost under this great new president) then they should bow out the education field gracefully. Everything rises and falls on leadership. How can they claim that 'students matter' when it's clear only their money matters?

Brevard Christian School has made great strides in the past few years under new pastoral and administrative teams. My daughter learned how to read in the 4 year old program by Christmas last year. Both of my children love the school and their teachers. They really care about the kids and us as a family.

The school has good teacher/student ratios'. High turnover rate for teachers. Some thing need improvement like better library, computer learning for younger grades, etc. Needs more after school activities/clubs, hardly any available. School is old and needs to get renovated. It is a loving environment where kids seems to learn and play together . I love the curriculum which is abeka. I think the teachers really do care for the students a lot.

My two grandchildren now in 5th and 4th grade have been attending BCS since preschool. They are both excelling academically, socially and spiritually. Both have consistently scored above the national averages in all subjects. The class sizes are much smaller than public schools. I'm very please with the level of communication with the teachers. Teacher turnover has been high but the quality of the teachers has been consistently high. BCS substantially raised teacher salaries last year so I hope this will reduce the turnover. BCS has a new administrator this year with great leadership skills. There are many extracurricular activities, in addition to the full sports program for High School & Jr High, my grandson attends an after school chess class.

Awesome teachers in the pre-school. My boys will both go there. My k4 son is reading 3 and 4 letter words mid year! There are only 13 students in his class. We love the new pastor and his wife, they have made the needed changes in the past year. 2005. Highly recomended!

Be very carefull! Some classes do not transfer and teachers are not all credentialed. Very bad experiance and a loss of two years of learning in the high school level. Also be aware that just because it is church affilitated chritian ethics are not practised nor are they enforsed.

Brevard Christian preschool has been wonderful for our daughter. She learned so many wonderful new skills. The atmosphere is like no school I have ever experienced. I attended public school but wish Brevard Christian School was available to me. I know several of the graduates from BCS and they are succeeding in college and the real world. They are very polite, smart, well adjusted, christian young men and ladies.

It seems that everytime I visit the school there are children in the halls never doing work and as far as getting college preparation I feel that the only colleges you prepare them for is the Christian colleges and that they don't learn the necessary fundamentals needed to suceed in the real world college scene.
