Coral Park Christian Academy now, is an excellent school with a principal who is also a pastor, focusing not only on the academic life of the students but also on the spiritual. Bilingual teachers from 3 months to 7th grade. Also, they accept many government programs, CDS, Step Up, McKay and VPK. A wonderful school with a great environment.

This place is just horrible. The change of principal and administration has been horrendous. They are stealing money and being very sneaky about their actions. I am very disappointed. A lot of great teachers and a wonderful principal were let go. For what?? Notice how noone has posted a review since 2011 because there is nothing good to say since the beginning of 2013. The only good thing here is the teachers that remain that have been around for a long time. Not the new ones.

My son has been attending Christian Learning Center since he was an infant. He will be 5 years old in a couple weeks and he is at a 1st grade reading level. The teachers are amazing and the principal and staff are amazing. My son loves it there and I intend to leave him there until he reaches the 5th grade. I can't imagine him going to any other school. Thank you Christian Learning Center for being such a wonderful 2nd home to my son. =)

This is such a hidden gem. Very small ratio in classrooms after 1st. grade which provides excellent personal attention to the kids' needs. Excellent teaching philosophy and moral values, as well as a focused christian education.

Very small and simple, but so full of love and coziness. We're really happy about switching to this environment for elementary. Sometimes we, parents, want such a full-package with all the extras included when searching for private school; but that's not neccessarily what our kids need. Great curriculum and very focused on christian values based on bible teachings.

Excellent balance philosophy in regards academics and spiritual education based on bible teachings. Their philosophy in regards the amount of homework is totally correct, no overloads and focused on reviewing concepts learned in school (rather than having the parents giving a new class at home). Their elementary school is simply the best. You can't find such a personalized attention and dedication anywhere else.

I am very pleased about the new school principal that started this year (2009). Nothing major against last year one, but she didn't seem to be available anytime and not really dedicated. I think this change had brought a new life and focus to the school's ideals.

If you're looking for an elementary school that will not only provide great academic curriculum, but also bible-based principles in their teaching philosophy and school environment, this is the place for you. Our kids are growing under a very personal attention and focus on their education system as well as spiritually, thanks to the dedication of their teachers. Their pre-k levels have a very good ratio of student-teachers, but their elementary levels (1-5) are the winner. You're not going to find this environment anywhere else. We feel very blessed to have found this school for our kids.

We couldn't be happier to have both our children here at their elementary school. This is our 2nd. year. The curriculum is excellent, the teachers are such dedicated people and obviously working there for the love of teaching, and the new administration staff that started this school year are the best. Their objective and goal is really to cater the personal and academic needs of every child there. It's a small and cozy environment that provides the children with true love and academic excellence.

The school is overall great, the curriculm is wonderful and the teachers are amazing, but the school director and vice president are not helpful in any way. They love to change school rules every so often to their convinience and have no consideration for the students. My child loves her teachers and learns alot everyday but the office staff is extremely unpleasant.

The children learn christian values. They are able to grow as individuals and learn how to interact in a society peacefully. The curriculum is A Beka which is advanced compared to that of the public school system. It goes up to fifth grade which is great for students who stay there because when they go to middle school they are prepared for middle and high school work. They take SAT's as well. I highly recomend it as it also has after school activities such as soccer, ballet and choir.

Excellent school with parent involvement. Children enjoy going there as they are all a big family. Curriculum is excellent as well as the values taught.

The academic program that is used is ABEKA which is outrageous. I am extremely happy with their academic structure. The environment is a very loving, nurturing but demanding one. Most parents are very involved mostly after 2nd grade as the curriculum is very tough and required parents involvement. They offer choir, piano, soccer and ballet in the afterschool programs. The class sizes are very small thus allowing for more one on one. The average class size is less than 20. The teachers maintain a support system with the parents in order to assist the students to perfrom their best. We participated in the youth fair this year with about 30 projects out of which 15 came in either 1st, second or third. My child has been their since 2 months old and will graduate this year from 5th grade.
