Just about to finish our first year with Solid Rock. Best decision we ever made.

Our daughter has changed schools a few times. After a while of deliberating, we made the decision to send her to Sold Rock. We could not be happier about this choice. It is really a great group of teachers and administrators who actually like kids (not something often felt from other places we attended). This school changed my daughters thinking- she now likes going to school! It has made all the difference in the world with her at school and at home. We are very happy we made the decision to change to Solid Rock. We hesitated because of money and I wish we wouldn't have. Every year is valuable. Our family recommends Solid Rock to everyone we know.

The school is big on community, which makes sense since they put in in their name. The school does great in establishing the word community throughout the way they run the school and build relationships between the students. Education goes far beyond the normal book work with them. They really focus on things like community, relationships, team work, attitude, behaviors. You Will hear these buzz words all the time and it is really true and visible in what they do. I have really gotten to know many of the teachers and I am so impressed by the level of time and effort they invest into the students. I have also gotten to know the administration Who pours endless hours into keeping the school running at its best. My child and myself know every teacher and administrator there which is not typical in most schools; the child interacts with all of the teachers and admin throughout the school year. After experiencing this school community, going anywhere else would be a step backwards. I pray we never have to move!

My son would have gotten his GED instead of wearing a cap and gown, if not for Solid Rock Community School. He excelled academically and socially with the smaller classroom size and increased teacher involvement. In public school, he never had the chance to play sports, but played Varsity Basketball for Solid Rock! He is now in college thanks to his learning experience at Solid Rock Community School!!

I have worked at many schools and none have shown the love and support that the school teachers and administration at Solid Rock show. I am very happy to be a SRCS staff member and I am proud to be going on my 4th year! Its a pleasure to work with professional long term people who love what they do.

Finding the right fit for our children has been a struggle, one that prompted a cross-country move. After a year in public school, with some serious issues and lack of growth, we decided to utilize the McKay Scholarship for all four school age kids. The search for a private school was daunting but led us to Solid Rock. This is the environment our kids needed and each one has different needs due to their very different backgrounds. The kids are flourishing, developing friendships and growing in all areas. The skill based classes are prefect for allowing them to master the subjects instead of just pushing them on to the next grade or subject. The staff and teachers are fully invested in every single child. We are very happy so far.

We have several children attending this school and for they first time ever, they each get up excited about going to school. The teachers are awesome, the kids are friendly and encouraging and the staff bends over backwards to make the whole experience life altering.

Solid Rock Community School has been an absolute blessing for our son and has changed our family for the better. At 12 years old this is his 3rd school and before we found Solid Rock his spirit was all but broken. This is the first place that he truly feels he belongs, that he fits in. The teachers here are amazing. They know and appreciate each child for who they are and do not try and change them into someone that they are not. The teachers have a true passion and enthusiasm, not only for what they are teaching but who they are teaching. Solid Rock is like a family and everyone, including the administrative staff, is positively involved in the growth and development of the children. These kids are happy and at home. The Solid Rock Community is also continuing to create more and more opportunities for the kids to be exposed to. There are sports, after school clubs, special events and ceremonies and the list of choices continues to grow. We are so happy at Solid Rock and feel so very fortunate to have found it!

This is my son's first year at Solid Rock Community School. He has been to both public and private schools in the past. Thus far, I am most impressed with this school. The teachers actually have degrees in the subjects they teach! I love the structure of their curriculum. A lot of thought and preparation has gone into structuring the daily schedule to maximize learning. They have an amazing football team and a large amount of teenagers in the high school grades! We are so glad we found them! Thank you Solid Rock!

I absolutely give Solid Rock Community School 5 Stars! The skill level based learning style with the multi modal teaching approach make this school a fit for any child! Both of my children thrive at this school and are learning leaps and bounds above children in their age group in public schools. The focus on "community" throughout the school is unparalleled by any other private school. I encourage everyone who wants more for their child to call and set up a tour as soon as possible. This school has changed our lives and I believe it can do the same for you.

An all around GREAT school that cares! They focus on children with learning disabilities, or those who may need a little extra attention. Life savers!

SRCS has been an excellent learning facility for my children. It provides a nurturing environment with its low teacher-to-student ratio that is offered.

This school offers good academics with lots of fun activities. My kids are very happy. Most of the teachers have great communication and the admin is very friendly and helpful. We plan on staying here until my kids graduate.

This is my sons' third year attending Solid Rock Community School and what a difference it has made! When we first came to this school my older son was to the point where every morning was a fight to get him up and ready for school. My younger son would not even attempt any type of creative writing. Through the "Educating Out of The Box" education style that Solid Rock offers to children, they have both grown academically and socially by leaps and bounds and are excited and confident to move forward both academically and socially.

My 6 year old son has Autism and was enrolled in the ESE Pre-K program from the age of 3 at our local public school. When it was time for him to leave the ESE Pre-K department we were very concerned how he would handle the transition. Mainstreamed and Inclusion Kindergarten was very hard and he regressed. After a month he was pulled back full time to a Self-Contained K-2 class. My husband and I learned about Solid Rock Community School and were thrilled to hear they were breaking ground on a new Autism Program. We decided that we would try SRCS for a year to see if it helped our son come out of his setback. Our 6 year old is independently doing all his work during the day. His handwriting has greatly improved and he started drawing again simply because he likes to. The teacher Ms Julie Ann has been amazing with him, as well as the others in his class. All of the children with Autism are making gains at Solid Rock. Our 6 year old has always cycled up and down with behavior, speech and skills. Amazingly he has not had a setback all year and is talking more now than ever! I feel this is because of God and the Solid Rock difference.

My 7 year old son is typical with mild speech issues and he is also doing so well at Solid Rock. The low student to teacher ratio 1:10 has really helped. He no longer has to be pulled for 1:1 help like he did at our public school. SRCS runs on skill level so he is in 2nd grade but is taking a 3rd grade Language Arts and a 1st grade math. Most of his classes only have 7 kids, all at the same skill level, so the teachers are able to really teach! We love that he is getting a solid education and is truly learning and enjoying it too. Learning at his skill level has removed so much frustration and fear of learning. Both my boys are attending SRCS with the help of the McKay scholarship. My husband and I feel so blessed that the opportunity to send our children to such a wonderful school was made available to our family.

I have 2 children at Solid Rock Community School. Both have very different needs, but I have seen the school try to meet their individual needs this year. There have been some bumps along the way. There is no perfect school because they are run by people and people are imperfect. I can tell you from my personal experience that the administration of this school has a heart for helping children who don't necessarily fit in anywhere else. The principal of the school has developed a priceless personal relationship with both of my children, helping them to find their niche at Solid Rock. The other admin are eager to meet with me at any time to discuss and make adjustments to fit my children's academic, emotional and social needs. If you are considering Solid Rock for your child, please make your decision based on facts not the disgruntled comments of others.

I have worked in Public Education (special ed) for 5 years. I quit because I could no longer tolerate they way the children were herded into VE classrooms because they couldn't behave in general ed. I watched so many bright students fall through the cracks. a I am now about to start my 4th year with Solid Rock and I keep coming back because of the magic that happens here every year. Every year I have worked here I have personally witnessed child after child who was beat down in public school or just couldn't keep up with being passed to the next level without master come to SRCS and blossom. Children who were way behind in math or reading jumping 2 or more grade levels. A 6 year olds knowing what a Cetacean is, where it lives, and what it eats. That's why I love SRCS.

My children have been in Solid Rock for two years. Their staff and teachers are patient and friendly. The negative posts can be traced to a disgruntled employee and former family which the school is in process of dealing with legally. They should be ashamed to try and harm the reputation of a school that really is such a benefit to so many. Go see for yourself and make your own decision.
