The Christ school is everything but "Christ like". Their curriculum is lacking and ineffective. While some kids struggle (and have to pay for tutoring, because the 10,000 tuition is not enough) others breeze through. Had we not changed schools we would not have realized how far behind our children really were. Its a shame that most don't realize this until after one leaves and sees the difference. If we are mostly interested in a Christian education then we must know that their curriculum is all world views and they do not even incorporate the bible in their "bible" class. The rules in place only apply to some, it seems to depend on how many children you have at the school or how much you donate (besides tuition). Also, part of the registration process (which many are unaware of) is that we agree not to make negative comments about TCS or our children may be expelled. In addition, once you register you commit to paying for the full year, whether you attend the school or not, even if your child is expelled. Beware. A school that feels the need to threaten parents for saying negative things about them makes me weary. Not worth the money academically, socially or in Christian education.

Handles bullying effectively: Strongly disagree

Again, depends on your last name. They allow things to happen that should not. They claim that it is their Christian duty to be graceful, but it just depends on who it is.


Effective school leaders: Strongly disagree

I do wish there are some parts of the curriculum that would be changed. They need to be a little more competitive in some academic areas.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree

The teachers response time is very quick if I have a question. Also, they know the children so well, and an established relationship will help all kids excel in school.

There is a powerful sense of community at this school. It is present among the students, parents, teachers, administrators, after-school teachers, coaches, and even the staff at First Presbyterian Church of Orlando. The Christ School has service as one of its core values, and it shows in the way they all serve one another at every level.

The Christ School is a Christian school in name only. They talk the talk, but do not walk the walk, and that is a problem for those of us genuinely seeking a Christian education and not just trying to avoid Orlando area public schools. The kids are coddled and spoiled; the administration refuses to enforce their own rules for fear of offending anyone, instead hiding behind what they call "grace." My child was thanked by a teacher for reprimanding her class when they acted out, which should not be the role of a student in the classroom. We are only now finding out how indulgent the grading system is at TCS, having transferred to another private, independent Christian school. This is a disservice to the students, because it gives them a false sense of superiority, but it is done to make the parents believe that their children are all geniuses and that the school is doing everything right. Almost half of my child's class was invited to participate in the "gifted" program, which we later surmised was geared toward anyone who had an extra $600 to pay above and beyond tuition costs for an hour of instruction once a week during the regular school day. My child earned high A's the entire time we were there without much effort, but we would have never known how far behind TCS is had we not transferred to a truly academically rigorous Christian school.

The Christ School is a great school because it has a safe Christian environment with caring teachers. I have been at TCS since Kindergarten and I am currently in 8th grade. I feel as though the Christ School has established a great Christian foundation in my heart that I will definitely need to use in high school and continue to use for the rest of my life. The classes are relatively small and most of the middle school teachers are passionate about what they teach and inspiring to their students.
