Great school! The teachers, administration, and other parents really embrace the 'covenant community' and are supportive! My son is thriving...

Perimeter has an offering like no other. It is a home school - school hybrid in the early years that allows children to ease in and spend a great deal of time learning from their parents (their primary teachers). The Charlotte Mason approach has helped my children form good habits and a great love of learning. Our family has been there 6 years and we have all grown in unmeasurable ways. The school reaches past the doors into your home and into your heart. It is a community of people who love and want what is best for the children.

This school is so unique: a great partnership between parents and teachers! I love the Charlotte Mason-style of learning, with rich content and natural exploration. Our daughter has really flourished in the small classes and friendly atmosphere. I love that she is growing academically, but spiritually as personally as well. It really is remarkable how Perimeter addresses the whole child: mind and heart. I wish we had started here in kindergarten.

Both of my children have attended PCS for several years and the teachers are excellent, kind, compassionate, and the covenant community with other parents is great. The heart of the child is just as important as the education and parent participation is glady expected.

Perimeter Christian School is an amazing school. We have 3 children and have been attending PCS for over 9 years. There is a special love the teachers and administration have for the students and the families in which they really work as a team to pursue excellence and knowledge while creating a solid foundation of faith and serving others. My 9th grade who graduated from PCS last year says that Perimeter prepared him very well in all areas. The tools Perimeter teaches our kids are invaluable. A great experience. Great teachers and fantastic administration.

All three of our children attended PCS for grades 1-8. Each one transitioned to public high school and excelled in their core subjects and were prepared for honors level math and English. We are so thankful for PCS and it's unique environment of small class size and focus on developing the child's heart and mind.

Perimeter Christian school is one of a kind, They have small class sizes which allows for individual attention from the teacher. The students are taught about their hearts and not just getting a grade, but always doing your best. They go deep into subjects, music , arts.... Parents involvement is incredible, the parents get to come and teach on Fridays topics like ancient Egypt, Shakespeare, plants and seeds...

They are so intentional on developing their children's character and hearts.

A wonderful school that is most interested in building the character and instilling Godly values of its students in order to prepare them to stand strong in a sinful world. Academics are strong. My child came to Perimeter in 6th grade from a nearby public school and is getting much more personal attention from the teachers. I just wish we had known about Perimeter when our child was in kindergarten.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

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.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
