We had both our kids in this school since 2008 and that was the biggest mistake we have ever made. The teachers are not qualified to teach kids who require special education. The first 2 years they promised that they were going to get state funded help for the kids and when they did, our kids were only getting 45 mins of tutoring. The school is full of kids who have disciplinary issues and it affects that kids who are there to learn. The school has zero technology (computers) and the kids aren't getting the education they deserve. I will say that they were good about teaching our kids the Gospel of Jesus Christ but they didn't provide an exceptional education for our kids. My kids are now back in public school and have been put back two grade levels because they are so behind i their academics. Unless this schools gets more qualified teachers there, I wouldn't send your kids there!

This school lacks the resources to provide an adequate education. Most of the children there had issues with the public school system and thus seems to be more of a reformatory, than a christian school. The children fight, visibly show their tatoos and school officials do not seem to be attentive. The school facilities lack adequate technology, so that children will be able to compete with counterparts from other schools. There is a shortage of teachers and other staff and the overall school environment is totally substandard. If you care about your child/children, I would not send them to this school. There is more of an emphasis on sports than education.

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.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
