I am very thankful for West Hernando Christian school. My three children get the opportunity to pray everyday at school, participate in a weekly chapel service, and say the pledge every morning. This are things many children don't get to do. I know my children are safe at school. I am happy my family can be part of the WHCS "family", because that's exactly what it is. A family! The teachers and staff love my children as God loves them. They treat them as if they were their own, and I'm thankful for that. It's a great k3-12 school with lots to offer. It's also a place where God comes first. It's a school where being a Christian is more than a name on the door.

WHCS is fantastic. The teachers are dedicated individuals, committed to spiritual and academic excellence. My children love going to school there. It is well worth every penny.

We are very pleased with WHCS. The teachers there are truly dedicated individuals who love children. Bullying is not tolerated and, in my experiences there, the children are very kind to one another. Academic standards are very high, at least a grade level above the public schools in our county. Most importantly, however, God comes first at this school.

WHCS is by far a great christian bible based teaching school. Their curriculum is very good. The teachers are nice and very eager to listen to your concerns and work with you about your childs needs. Small school. Great disipline. Some sports. I have a child who has attended K a thru 1st grade and has exceeded my expectations. I think they are more advanced than a public school due to the fact that they do not test for the FCAT. Will concider taking children in K before age of 5 after doing an assessment test. Tuition is very reasonable and gods word is taught in nearly every subject. have a great pre-K program for 3 and 4 yr olds. Strict dress code with school uniforms. Some financial assistance avail. if you qualify. A+

Awesome school - I have four attending and it is worth every penny. They are getting a great education with Christian teachers and curriculum. I have seen tremendous growth, esp. in my high-schoolers.

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.
