Christian is far from the environment here Being an individual is verboten, fall "in line" or be singled out, do not question anything If one teacher doesn't like you the rest will follow suit If a student needs help in a subject don't look for the teaches to help unless your with the "in crowd"
This school should not allow to let teachers to get students to check other student's paper work. It should be a privacy between the teacher and student. That is the teacher's job anyways. Bullying should not be tolerated either. They turn a blind eye to this. Teachers SHOULD NOT show favoritism to students. This is why I. pulled my daughter out of this school
My children left public schools last year (thank God!) to attend their first private school, Escambia Christian. What a difference! Their grades shot up, after received failing or marginal grades, mostly because I could not get the help they needed academically. Their grades and their confidence suffered tremendously! At Escambia Christian, all my children, even those with IEP's was able to get the academics they needed (now without an IEP!), bringing all their grade averages to A's and B's. Even m son went from having an IEP to being on the Dean's list 2 semesters in a row! My daughter who previously attended Bellview Middle, went from D's and F's, to B's and A's in just her first semester here. Escambia Christian didn't just change my children academically, but emotionally, and spiritually as well ! That is something you could not find in any public school! They're registered for 08-09!
The quality of academic programs is not all that good at this school. There are no music or art classes available except for just singing. No art classes on the masters or the great composers. I am not really sure about the parent involvement because most of the parents work. The thing that concerns me the most is that they do not discipline bullying students and for a Christian school this is unacceptable. The Board of Directors needs to be more watchful over matters at this school.
