This is not an honest school. They turn their backs when children of the board bully other students. The former Chairman's son has a bad reputation, and his dad is an alleged "pastor". Hypocritical teachings.
My family was involved with this institution since the Seminole Presbyterian days. I put three kids through this school and my wife attended this school. It is merely a shell of the great institution it once was. It's all smoke and mirrors.
The Headmaster Tim Euler proudly displays his diploma mill degree from the University of Phoenix in his office. He is at his core a bad person who has a propensity towards vindictiveness and downright dishonesty. His administration is really no better. The Operations Director/Football Coach is a former Tampa City Police Officer who was terminated for solicitation of prostitution.
Cambridge Christian is a closed culture controlled by a few for the benefit of a few. Their values, morals and ethics are highly questionable. They are financially irresponsible.
We have cut all ties with this organization. There are better places to put your money and better people to trust with your child.
I know so many people in the organization that I can say with complete certainty, the good reviews you see come from administrative staff, faculty, and students. When it comes to defending the fort, the Church of Scientology has nothing on these people. Enter at your own risk.
Here are a few facts about CCS:
1.CCS is academically excellent. We have earned state, regional and national accreditation. Our curriculum follows best practices and implements an Engaged Learning curriculum. Of our 52 2014 graduates, we had 1 National Merit Scholar (a CCS “Lifer” educated at Cambridge since age 3), over 30 AP Scholars and 100% acceptance to their college of choice, receiving over $3.5 million in scholarships. We offer weekly instruction in Spanish, Library Science, Music and PE with Technology instruction beginning in Pre-K.
2.CCS has a Championship Athletic program. Thirteen students-athletes were named to All-State teams, two coaches were named Coaches of the Year and our CCS Athletic Program was named the #1 2014-2015 FHSAA Academic Team State Champion for Class 2A, honoring our achievement in academics as well as athletics.
3.CCS focuses on spiritual development and maturity. Our students regularly serve at Trinity Café for the homeless, adopt underprivileged families in the Sulphur Springs community, attend mission trips throughout South America and run a Sports Camp for Hope Children’s Home.
4.CCS Fine Arts Department performs in yearly Broadway musicals and has drama, choir, ensemble, band and art departments that participate in yearly competitions and shows.
5.Integration of current technology is a priority in all programs. This year we will see handheld Student Response Systems for preschool-3rd grade, iPad and HP Stream Laptop carts for 4th through 6th grades, laptop carts for 7th and 8th grades and a fully functional Bring Your Own Device program in Upper School.
6.Recent Parent Survey boasts an over 90% satisfaction in the school, the Head of School, administration and overall educational experience.
7.Enrollment has increased by nearly 10% percent over the last two years and re-enrollment rate is 90%.
8.CCS has a thriving International program. Many of our international students have come to know Christ during their time at CCS and have created strong bonds with families that continue long past their visit with us. The number of international students amount to only 2% percent of our overall growth.

Great marketing department, 3 glowing reviews posted on the same day!! What a coincidence. This used to be a great school. New headmaster has brought problems with him. They lost 80% of their high and middle school teachers last year. He has added family members to the payroll to compensate. They have 10 teacher jobs posted on the website for this year, so I guess more are leaving. To make up for the people leaving, they are importing students from Asia. They did recruit a great basketball team however.
if you want your child to learn everything about the lord and the bible than this is the school for them. if you want your child to learn anything else than I would find another school. The curriculum in this school is Awful. Children in this school lack technology/computers and we live in 2015. Most children in this school aren't reading until 2nd grade. This school is SO FAR behind academically. It was beautiful seeing the lord touch my childrens heart on a daily basis but we can do that at home and with our church. I really need my children to learn what they are suppose to be learning in school. -lower school parent
As a current Cambridge Christian parent, it is hard to believe that the prior reviewer is at the same school. The biggest challenge the school currently faces is where to put everybody due to the addition of new programs and growth in enrollment. We increased by 50 students in the high school this year, only 15 of which were international students, which have added greatly to our culture. Our teachers (overall) are younger than a year ago, which has been a welcome change! Cambridge is not an IB school, so I certainly hope we aren't preparing our students for IB exams! The WiFi challenges that existed at the beginning of the year have been completely resolved. The staff at this school loves my children and disciplines them (and others) when appropriate. More importantly, they disciple my kids, for which I am eternally grateful! If you are looking for a perfect school, Cambridge is not the place for you. However, if you are looking for excellence, come on! We are thrilled to be here.
