After attending several other area "Christian" schools throughout my education, I was so happy when my parents let me come back to Keswick. And I'm thankful to have graduated there. Because I KNOW what else is out there in Christian education, I always hoped my children would be able to attend Keswick some day. And now they do! KCS is the only Christian school in the county that requires at least one parent to be a believer in Jesus Christ and involved in a local church. And while that may not seem like a big deal, IT MAKES A HUGE DIFFERENCE in the classroom atmosphere and student body. For the most part there is a positive peer pressure and like-mindedness among students, teachers, and parents. Like a fellow reviewer on here said, Keswick really is a rare find!

Keswick is a great school. Our three children have been there since kindergarten. The teachers are committed to the success of the students. The family environment and and high quality education are amazing. This is school that puts Christ first in everything they do. One of my children graduated one year ago and is attending a top US Christian University. He started his first year of college as a Sophomore thanks to the AP classes he took at Keswick. Best Christian school in Pinellas County.

Keswick Christian School is a rare find. I challenge you to take one visit to the campus. The history of 60 years speaks for itself. Then you meet the administration and see how focused they are in coming along side of the family to educate your child in Christian love. They set the course for the teachers that follow through with the same desire. No other school in the area can compare to the campus setting at Keswick. The history of this school along with the staff and families that come together as one is not found at any other private K-12 school in Pinellas County. I challenge you to stop by and experience the difference a Keswick Christian School. We are blessed to be a part of this outstanding tradition.

Our children have been attending Keswick since PK-3 and they have enjoyed miraculous growth in their academics, the arts, in their interpersonal skills and respect toward others, and cultivated leadership talents as well. The spiritual development of our children has been what really sets Keswick apart. This has been evident not only to us as parents, but also to those who have who have witnessed their interactions outside the campus and our church. Partnering with both our church and us as parents, their experiences at Keswick have both reinforced and deepened their faith. The remarkable scope and quality of education is accomplished by the presence of the Holy Spirit working through the administration, faculty, and staff at Keswick all of whom we now consider as family. We continue to witness His work in our children. The loyalty, faith and commitment of those instructing our children are an inspiration to us. We ve been truly blessed by the opportunity to partner with Keswick in the development of our sons, and remain thankful such an awesome Christ-centered Biblically-based education is within reach of us both geographically and financially!

Keswick Christian School has played the single most significant role in the positive Christian development of our children outside of our home. Since kindergarten, KCS is the only school we've known. Our daughter is a junior in college now and we credit Keswick for both the scholorships she has earned and the relative ease of her transition to college. Our son continues to flourish in highschool at Keswick. The leadership, teachers and coaches place Christ at the center as they lead our childrent to pursue excellence in the classroom, on the field or court, and on the stage(choir, band, drama). We cannot image being anywhere other than Keswick.

Keswick Christian School is such a blessing to our family! Our daughter has been attending since 2009 and we have seen her grow leaps and bounds in academics, social abilities and spiritually. Finding a school to partner with us in teaching God's Word that has high academic standards is extremely important to us! If you are seeking the same, look no further than Keswick Christian School! They are an extension of our family and each teacher there is committed to educating the children, encouraging and loving them. We were looking for a preschool with no thoughts of further education when we visited the school. Once we toured the campus and learned that she could go from preschool through 12th grade we were thrilled. Additionally, I can tell you that the moment I stepped foot on the campus I knew it was different, unique and filled with the Holy Spirit. Our search for a school stopped there and we are so glad it did. We love Keswick Christian School and all of the staff!

First of all, I cannot say enough about Keswick Christian School. Not only did this school meet my expectations, but Keswick exceeeded my expectations. My daughter attended K-3 at Keswick and she grew socially, emotionally, academically, and spiritually. I believe in making sure that my child has a solid education foundation. A Christian foundation is equally important. My daughter, who was 3 at the time, knows how to pray and truly experienced the love of God at Keswick. It is a great school! We moved our daughter closer to home because it was a 45 minute drive from our home. I believe that we may send her back. Keswick was an awesome experience.

We love this school. It is truly an amazing place to send your child. If you are looking for a great place to send your children with teachers that care and encourage your children, look no further. Our daughter has attended for 9 years and there is no other school I would send her to. If it was necessary, I would get two jobs to keep her there. All levels of staff know and love the children. It is truly a family atmosphere.

Knowing that my 5 year old son learns everything he needs to know academically as well as spiritually is worth every single penny in tuition that we pay! Seeing the way he's learning about the love of Jesus is priceless to us. We can't even imagine him attending school anywhere else!!! Keswick is the BEST!!!

Our children receive a great all around education. It is a great school academically and spiritually. The teachers and staff are excellent! They are committed to teaching our children with a Christian emphasis. We also have many sports to participate in. Our school offers Pre-K through 12th grade, so our children can grow up with the same friends they've known since they began school. We are committed to sending our children to a Christian School and we believe Keswick is the best in our area and our children love going to school at Keswick!

My two preschool-aged girls go to Keswick. There is no other place I would have them, to be loved and to learn, than here. The teachers and aids come along side my husband and me to encourage them in their strengths and to train them through weaknesses. We love KCS!

My children attended Keswick from elementary to high school graduation. They are both currently in college. Keswick was wonderful for us. Both of my children were very well prepared to attend college both academically and emotionally. We found the administration and the teaching staff to be professional, dedicated and truly gifted in their work with my children. They all went above and beyond the call of duty both academically and in being there for my kids when they needed a sympathetic ear. I can not say enough good about this school and if you are a parent looking for a quality, christian, caring environment for your child you will not find a better one.

My son has attended this school from VPK to first grade and absolutely loved it. The academics are very challenging, but the teachers LOVE to teach and mentor them. They truly love what they do and the evidence is displayed on each of the childrens faces. Christian values are continually reinforced and discussed through out each day. We can no longer afford to attend, however, we would never have left otherwise. We have tried another local public school with an A rating and 9 out of 10 for great schools, but were extremely disappointed in comparison. There was an incredible difference in the teachers love for their school and children (the teachers at Keswick do not make more $) , and an even greater difference in the level of academics being taught. We Love this school! Wendy R. Fulvi (parent)

My son went there for preschool and kindergarten and loved it. He is in 1st grade and, is now suspended over what was a innocent misunderstanding. The school I felt is unfair to my son . They allow other children for greater offenses to stay but, are now threatening to expel my son . I believed them to be a loving and , compassionate. I'm dissapointed to say they are not.

We have a child entering the fourth grade and a 2nd one entering pre-school at Keswick. Our experience has been extremely positive. The teachers have been tremendous. You can tell they love what they do. The academic standards are high, the parent involvement is strong including their PTF (Parent Teacher Fellowship), the Christian beliefs and values are instilled daily. Keswick is a great school where the children and teachers are happy. You can see their smiles every day.

I fell that Keswick offers good Christian beliefs and values. The school is safe but the discipline policy is not inforced. The dress code is very laps throughout all grade levels. There is no PTA so there is not a whole lot of parent involvement.

We have two sons in Keswick and couldn't be happier with the school. Everyone from the Headmaster to the custodial staff is a caring Christian person whom you can feel good about your child spending most of his day with. Our oldest son has had some difficulties with speech and reading; his Pre-K teacher pointed out the speech problem to us and directed us to the appropriate resources. When he started having trouble with reading, his Kindergarten teacher went out of her way to tutor him (and others) after school and his first grade teacher helped us arrange for a private tutor. His reading has improved greatly and we owe it all to teachers who truly care about the children they teach. Your child will not slip through the cracks here!Our children are receiving a top notch Christian education in a safe, caring environment -- What's not to love?

Keswick is truly a unique and Spirit filled school. Our daughter has attended since pre-school, and we are hopeful she will be able to go there through high school. She loves the regular music, art, and physical education, and is getting a wonderful education in math, science, English, Bible, and other fundamental subjects. Most importantly, she is learning the truth from God's word. Keswick is a community of faith that ministers to the entire family.

The faculty truly cares about the students and I felt like students were in a safe, nurturing environment. This is a traditional school that holds a higher standard for students when it comes to character and values. It's a bit pricey. But it's worth it.

This is a wonderful school and I don't think I could ask for more. The teachers go way out of their way to let you know everything you need to about your child and their progress, and parents are strongly encouraged to be actively involved in every aspect of their child's education. My son is a well mannered, intelligent, God loving child and Keswick has a lot to do with that. He excels in some areas and the teachers have picked up on that quickly and continue to challenge him a little more than the rest of the class while not putting undue pressure on him or singling him out. The tuition is reasonable, and the school is willing to work with you should you find paying difficult. The entire staff, parents, and students make this school exceptional, while keeping God as their focus.

I attended Keswick from forth grade through eleventh grade. This school has wonderful standards. On the other hand, it is not strict or suppressive. The guidelines set forth by the school are not excessive, but coincide with a normal ethical lifestyle. The teachers were excellent educators and examples in life. The environment was very structured, yet exciting. They did not restrict a student s creativity; instead they provide many different programs for a wide array of interests and talents. Over all I feel that Keswick was an excellent school, and I would without a doubt send my own children there.
