My children have attended Cambridge Christian for almost ten years. Our experience there has been wonderful. The teachers are nurturing and caring. The sports programs are competiitve but both the above average and average athlete have play oppurtunities. The academics are strong as well as there arts department. Cambridge is truly Christ centered and shapes the whole child, mind body and spirit. ir.

We love Cambridge Christian School. The new headmaster has done a wonderful job in his first year. We have one child in the lower school and one that will be starting Kindergarten next fall. The faculty is great, our child loves it and our other one can't wait to get there. The most important thing to us regarding public, private or Christian school was the Christian aspect. This school is exactly what we wanted and we love it and plan to have both of our kids there through 12th grade. Praise God that there's such a wonderful school as this in our area!

When bullying or acidents happen the school goes into defensive mode. They are more concerned about the school than the children.That includes accusing children and parents of lying.

Two of our children attended The Cambridge School from the ages of 6th grade through 12th. We found the academic aspects of their programs to be exceptional. The most important thing our children received however, was a strong sense of accomplishment, caring for other, strengthening of their faith and a strong moral and ethical foundation. We can not recommend highly enough the importance this school played in their lives.The music and sports programs were incredible. Music is the core of this school. It drives the students emotionally and spirtually to look within and strive to be their very best. The school promotes community service and sponsors annual missions trips for choir members in third world countries.The teachers and parents work closely to achieve a level of excellence seldom seen at a high school level. We only hope that Cambridge is their for our grandchildren.

Keep in mind that this is a very small school. Studentts often reflect their parents attitudes as well. Be mindful of who your students are friends with. This is what I have learred from my experience in the upper school. The academics and teachers are really wonderful.

The academics here a at a high level in thehigh school - offering many AP courses. There is an award winning choral department and sports aplenty for those interested. However, it is a college prep school, with an emphasis on academics and there are not alot of other things for the students who don't play sports or parpticipate in the choir. Additionally, it is a small schoool, which is a plus or a minus, depending on your child's needs. I have always found it to be a positive.

I have had three children at the school for several years. I am thrilled with the high academic standards taught within a Christian world view. The extra-curricular offerings have been great for my kids - with more each year. Because my children have differing learning styles, it has been interesting to see how the teachers have engaged them in different ways - with great results. Most importantly, I have watched my children grow in character and faith as they have grown acadmically. I would recommend the school to anyone I know. In fact, I do all the time.

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.
