My son started in King's when he was in 3rd grade-currently in 6th. My daughter in PK-3- now in Kinder. I give thanks to God for this school. They put the LORD first, which is a big plus for us. The principal and teachers are amazing, the staff is great. The great Christmas and Spring shows, as well as many other activities make it so much fun and feels like family. My kids love this school and my 12 year old would not even think to miss a day. I would love for this school to go all the way to 12th grade. Please!!! Please!!!! Just thinking my boy has 7th & 8th only here makes my heart skip a beat. I definitely recommend this school.

We've had our 1st grader at King's Christian School since K-3. He loves the school, principal (Ms. Hew), teachers and staff! This has been the best decision we ever made. Our son has grown leaps and bounds both academically and spiritually which we could not have asked for more. His SAT scores were well above average and his reading at such a young age is absolutely amazing. They use the A Beka curriculum which I believe is the way to go if you want your kids to achieve their academic goals. I had my doubts about the school at first due to the cost of having him in a private school. However, King's monthly dues are very competitive and more affordable than all the other private schools we checked. We really love the school and grateful that we were able to get him in the school again this year. All the teachers in the school are absolutely amazing! The dedication they have with ALL the students is unparalleled. We are so happy we made the decision to bring our son into this amazing school. You will be forever grateful that you put your kid(s) in such an amazing school!

Excellent School, I brought My Daughter Victoria Faith to join this school from Mexico....I was seeking to find a Christian School with Family values and good academic standard and found it here on top and beyond my expectations, the Principal is a hard working and extremely caring person and the Teachers are amazing...

This school is a piece of heaven on earth. Great principal, great teachers, and most of all a nurturing environment that allows students to grow academically, socially, and spiritually. Highly recommend to parents that are tired of overcrowded and insensitive schools and want their children to be challenged academically. Both my kids (prek 3 and 4th grade) love going to this school every day.

Kings Christian takes the McKay Scholarship but discriminates faints autistic children. I had a teacher tell me the staff is not trained for autistic children. Flash NEWS neither are Dade County school teachers. After talking to this teacher and principal I realized they have a great deal of misconception towards Autistic children. The principal made it a point to tell me how a former Autistic child would go into tantrums. It was obvious she did not want my high functioning autistic child. Administration and teacher did a fantastic job of STEREOTYPING. A+ for you. I will make it a point to report them to McKay with a possible case of discrimination with a special education lawyer.

I do not like to disagree with the other reviewers but our experience at this school was not very good. The PK3 teacher was not impressive and actually had a detrimental affect ion my child which lasted for several months after we had left the school. Although I do believe their intentions were good I cannot recommend this school for younger children.

Our daughter went to this school for kinder and for first grade. We were ecstatic to find such a wonderful school. The principal, office staff, and teachers are phenomenal. Moreover, the parents are actively involved in this school, which has a lot to do with the fact that they are not only financially invested in their children's lives and future, but they truly desire for their children to reach their potential academically and spiritually. We are very impressed with how well our daughter did academically and on the SAT, but how she grew spiritually. We HIGHLY recommend this school! You should definitely give them a try. You will be very happy with what they have to offer.

I attended KCS from K-3 to 8th grade. I loved all of my teachers and have nothing but wonderful memories. They made learning fun. I hope that when I have children they can attend this school.

I have both my children at KCS. My kids are doing excellently in academics . This is a small school environment and the principal is very involved. I pulled my kids out of Florida Christian to place them here. The environment is outstanding and the education brilliant. My daughter has only 13 children in her 4th grade class. My son has 21 kids in his 8th grade class. The Christian teaching is unbeatable.

I am a former student of KCS. I must say overall, it is an AWESOME A+ school. It offers quality Chrisitan education to their students. I attended KCS's Middle School from 6-8 grade. It trained me well academically and spiritually. People are very friendly, teachers teach well and are also very kind and helpful. I definitely recommend Kings Christian School to all parents and kids from Pk-8. Go KCS Lions forever!

Our oldest graduated from 8th grade at KCS and went on to succeed in a competitive high school where he plays on the varsity basketball team. Our two youngest children are still at KCS. They love their friends and teachers. The school seems to get better every year. Many extra classes are offered in response to students' interests. This year they have a one-on-one program for special needs children. The best thing about this school is its size. The small classes make it difficult for a child to 'slip through the cracks.' The A Beka academic program is excellent. Computer, Spanish, chorus, drama, art, guitar, after school sports and daycare are offered. Students learn in a non-threatening, loving atmosphere. The school supports traditional family values, and it prepares students for the rigorous challenges found in larger, less personal, more competitive schools. This school is a 'well kept secret' worth sharing.

My son has stayed home with me since he was born, he never went to day care or stayed with a babysitter. Therefore choosing the perfect school was very important to me. I went to interviews at the best schools, looking for very specific qualities. A family member recommended me KCS and it has been the best thing to happen to my family. The school has a close family feel to it, as all the teachers including the principal know the child and parent by name. They allow and encourage you to help and volunteer in activities. Their communication level with parents is excellent as they are always informing you of everything going on in the school. The curriculum is very advanced and very effective, you could definitely see the results. If you are looking for a well rounded Christian school KCS is definitely the best option.

This is my son's first year at KCS, and I am very happy with the curriculum and the strong emphasis on the Christian faith being taught in the school. My son is not only being taught how to succeed in academics, but also how to respect others. By the end of his K-3 year he will be able to recognize all his letters, and be able to write his name. It is great to see the excitement and growth in my son. I would recommend KCS to anyone who is looking for a school that really cares about the success of each child academically, and the and growth of character development in each child.

I was recommend to Kings by a family member and a neighbor which he went to Kings and his nephews and daughter also attended. Let me tell you Kings Christian has been a blessing for my two boys. The understanding and the one to one care that we receive is exceptional they all treat each other in the school like a big family I think that it is very important when it comes to the learning and development of a child. My boys even ask me to take them there during summer vacation. I recomend Kings to my friends and family all the time.

Not only am I a parent of two children attending KCS, I am also a proud alumni. The faculty and staff will love your kid and help him/her to develop their full potential. Their curriculum is superior to many schools. When my oldest daughter was in pre-k4, she was already reading and writing in cursive! There is a family atmosphere, as the classes are small, and everyone knows each other. Parent involvement is not only allowed, but strongly encouraged! If you are looking for small class size, loving teachers, Christian values, and a place for you child to be able to grow spiritually and academically, KCS is great! I have nothing but great memories from there, and I'm sure it will be the same for my kids.
