Posted July 22, 2012

Our three children attended Delta's Christian School of Excellence. We absolutely loved the school. We were all a great big family. Whai I loved most was how passionate the principal was about teaching. Every child was special. She was always very concerned about the success of every child. I was equally thrilled on how the school trained all of their students to be so well mannered. Delta's has always been outstanding for great academics and teaching of the Bible. If your child is behind, trust me, they will give them help classes to get them caught up. My kids are doing extremely well. I highly recommend this school, to any parent who is serious about a good education and having a well mannered child. A Great school!!

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
