My daughter been at this school since 5K, going on 5 years. The church and school are in debt by millions of dollars for the past few years parents didn't find this issue until the end of 2015. They are not informing the parents on everything that is going on financially

My daughter been at this school since 5K, going on 5 years. The church and school are in debt by millions of dollars for the past few years parents didn't find this issue until the end of 2015. They are not informing the parents on everything that is going on financially so most parents are thinking the school is going to close but they are not telling parents anything all they are doing is collecting money There was an emergency meeting held a couple months ago and the meeting was unprofessional and outrageous everyone was upset, screaming, yelling; the meeting basically was about the school possibly closing down and explain that the church is debt and whatever the church has going on affects the school.We as parents that are paying all this money for ours kids to get a great education is not being treating right and are in the blind. The elementary principle left, the high school principle left, the head master of the school is also gone along with other teachers and students. months later after the meeting it left all parents puzzled and unsure if they wanted their kids to return to this school, the administration office sent out an email basically telling everyone who wish to enroll to enroll by a deadline which they gave parents only 4 weeks to decide or the reenrollment fee will go up by $200,300 or $ 400.00 on top of the reenrollment fee. Most parents that paid reenrollment fees have decided to withdraw their child because of all the issues the school is having wasn't able to get their reenrollment money back. This school was a great school 2-3 years ago and it went down completely. the teacher wrote my child up for something she didn't witnessed, she wrote the write up based upon another 3rd grade student, which is not right at all. I went to the elementary principle and had a meeting, the principle agreed it should be removed but she stated she will talk with the teacher to give her a chance to remove it on her own, the teacher had a very bad attitude, she didn't want to remove the write up, the principle had to ask her basically beg her like 5-6 times to remove the write up. make a long story short, am withdrawing my child from this school. I rather pay tuition at a school where there is respect, good education, and a steady foundation for my child.


Amount of homework: Disagree

Not enough teaching them mom and dad have to tutor material that wasn't discussed. We taught more than the teachers.

It is an institution of lies end to end. Administration doesn't care about you only your wallet.



- a parent
This School is on the verge of closure. Incompetent staff and Administration. A premium price for the worse ROI in South Florida. Don't believe me? Ask any parent in the 2015/2016 school year. It's an embarrasement end to end. A Superintendent who is a bully and manages through intimidation. A Church Administration who does not share the truth with both its members and School families. The school has less than 500 students and continues to regress. Do yourself a massive favor and go somewhere else.


Teacher effectiveness: Agree


- a student
A majority of the teachers at Dade Christian present academic material in such a way that the students will understand. They always answer the student's questions. However, the curriculum may improve by extending the time per class.

The teachers here are amazing and extremely helpful. l couldn't ask for better teachers. My experiences here at Dade have been unforgettable.

I have been a parent at DCS for the past 13 years. Regardless of the changes, my experience has been positive. I feel my son has developed a strong Christian and moral foundation. In terms of the education side, I have known many students who have graduated and gone on to attend great universities and are successful individuals as well as professionals today. With the new administration, I am confident that DCS will continue to progress and is moving in the right direction.

Terrible overall experience... Uncaring administration both old and new. They certainly do not mind taking your well earned money for all tuition and fees but certainly do not want to answer calls, emails, or other inquiries. Unaccountable for any and all actions on the part of administration, teachers, and coaches. The redeeming grace is that there are great kids there to make the experience much better! A couple of the courses were harder than honors courses at a previous school for just regular classes and tested at that level too. Like I said... no accountability... totally one-sided. It is a sad state especially with all the changes in place at this point and more changes happening daily. Don't waste your money on this school as it will be a total disappointment!



- a parent
This is the worst school in dade county. It is a waste of money, do not send your children to this school. It is run by an incompetent staff and is an unorganized chaotic mess. The teachers are constantly shuffled around and the office staff is untrained and unprofessional. Beware.
