My daughter just started 1st grade at SHCS today! I was so impressed with their K5 program last year after my daughter was reading fluently by January and continued to excel in reading throughout the second semester. The teachers truly love their students at this school and it is evident in the student's excitement to return each year/each day! I would highly recommend SHCS if you are looking for a Christ-honoring school that excels in academics and love for their students.

I have had children attend Shiloh Hills Christian since 1998. Two of my children have graduated from Shiloh and I have one who is currently in 8th grade. My graduate children have moved on to do very well in college, with one now working on his PhD. I have been very pleased with both the quality of education as well as the care and concern the teachers and staff have shown to my children. The office and teachers do a great job keeping me informed on everything related to their education and with all the activities that are going on. Shiloh has a variety of extracurricular activities for the children to participate in, including sports, drama, art, to name a few. They do not apologize for their Christian name. They include Bible everyday, which I feel is very important! I highly recommend Shiloh Hills Christian School to anyone looking for a wonderful, loving, Christ centered school to put their children from 3 years old all the way through 12th grade. I have been very pleased for the last 16 years!

Shiloh Hills Christian School has been such a blessing to our family! The teachers are very caring and will go to great lengths to see your child succeed. We have had students in both the elementary and the middle school and have been very pleased with both. We love the small class size and how it really does feel like a 'family'. Their test scores are consistently well above average and they are currently accredited by SACS. Our children have also thoroughly enjoyed the athletic program. All of the reasons listed above make SHCS a GREAT school!

I am the parent of a 1st grader at Shiloh Hills Christian school and I believe that this school has been wonderful for my son! He is the type of child that likes to be challenged and the teachers and staff at this school do just that! The environment in his classroom is great! His teacher, Mrs. Bunny Helms is absolutely wonderful! She has an amazing positive energy and you can see how much she truly cares for the kids in her classroom. If you are looking for a loving, caring, Christian environment for your child, I believe that Shiloh Hills Christian meets all of those.

Shiloh Hills Christian School is a wonderful school! My daughter is 8 years old and is in Second grade. She has attended Shiloh for 3 years and each year we continue to fall in love with the teachers, staff and families more and more. My daughter has a learning disability. Shiloh has embraced her and encouraged us in so many ways. My husband and I wanted our daughter to have Bible based teaching, smaller classes and affordable tuition. Shiloh Hills Christian has met all of our expectations and so much more. We truly feel blessed that God has allowed us to be part of the Shiloh Hills family!

A good value for the money. The curriculum is challenging, the class sizes small and the environment is safe.

Great private school. We always wanted our children to go to a private school and didn't want them in the public school system. After looking into a few private schools Shiloh Hills was the best pick for us. We liked that they would be able to start in pre k and not have to change schools to go to Jr High or High School. After meeting with Mrs. Stewart we knew this was the school that we wanted our kids to go to. She was so excited to be able to start a new year and being able to teach the kids, you could tell that she loved teaching and truly cared about the kids. To us that was important, we wanted to see a low turnover rate for teachers as well as to see that most teachers have been there for years. I would definitely recommend this school to anyone who is looking for a private school.

My son has been a student at Shiloh for 11 years and has received a great Christian education, as well as opportunities to be involved in athletics, service projects, and fine arts. I can remember several times when his teachers contacted me to let me know how he was doing in their class. That's one of the advantages of attending a small school. Shiloh's teachers love the Lord and their students.

I have worked at Shiloh Hills Christian for three years, and have been so blessed to be a part of this "family." This distinctive family-like quality shines through the way that the staff truly cares and supports one another, the students, and the parents. During my first year of teaching, I experienced this support first hand through the encouragement I received after receiving a difficult health diagnosis. The level of support given from colleagues, students, and parents was an unparalleled experience for me. I will never forget returning to work and receiving kind cards and chocolate covered strawberries from my students . Going forward, I have continued to witness the unique support given to the staff, students, and parents when needed through the offering of encouragement and the meeting of needs. The teachers care about meeting the academic and spiritual needs of the students and go out of their way to help them succeed in these areas.

We have been at Shiloh for three years now. We have been happy with the environment, the teachers, the class size, and all the extras you get by not being legislated by the State and Federal government. The school has been SACS accredited for about a year now. As a public school teacher, I can't imagine having my kids in public school after seeing a better alternative!! To correct a previous reviewer, Shiloh Hills IS accredited by SACS as well as other accrediting agencies: American Association of Christian Schools (AACS) Georgia Association of Christian Schools (GACs) Southern Association Of Colleges And Schools (SACS) Georgia Private School Accreditation Council (GAPSAC)

It's our 4th year in Shiloh Hills Christian School. My daughter absolutely loves her school and teachers. Every morning she goes to school with smile on her face, and can't wait to see her classmates. To me it speaks volumes, knowing that my child is spending her day in caring and loving christian environment. Teachers go above and beyond in providing great education for children. My daughter has excelled academically and socially in this school.

I agree with the last review. We were told 3 years ago Shiloh Hills was working to get SACS Accredited that year, three years later they still are not. You get what you pay for.

You should avoid sending your child to Shiloh Hills unless your primary concern is spiritual instruction, specifically in the Independent Bible Church, a fundamentalist doctrine Shiloh is NOT Baptist affiliated AND as mentioned in other reviews, legalistic. The Student to Teacher Ratio is more accurately, 15-21 to 1, until you get into upper school when students attrition may cause STR numbers to drop. Currently, many Shiloh parents and grandparents sub or teach classes and do so only with church approval, regardless of whether they hold a teaching degree or attended college. At Shiloh, you get what you pay for.

Based on the GreatSchool own review rating criteria with the exception of the Kindergarten, Shiloh Hills rates poorly unless: 1)You are seeking a cheap private school. 2) An alternative for a child who who might struggle in a pubic or more academically challenging private school 3) If your primary educational goal is a legalistic Shiloh Hills spiritual education. * "A great school has excellent teachers, Strong principle/school leadership and Challenging academic programs."

I am a former Shiloh student who is now a parent of 2 children who have attended Shiloh since K-4 and another who is excited about starting this year! I could not imagine my children going any place else. The teachers are wonderful and believe it or not, some of them are still there from when I was a student. The dedication from the teachers to their students is amazing. My children have really enjoyed being a part of Shiloh and we are looking forward to introducing our youngest child to the school. They have exceeded our expectations and continue to do so!

This is our ninth year at Shiloh. We have an eighth grader and a senior. In a time where people transition in and out of schools on a frequent basis, we are often asked why we have chosen to stay at Shiloh. We love that the teachers know our children personally and are aware of their individual strengths and weaknesses. They use this personal knowledge to motivate them to strive for their personal best each year. However, the most important reason that we have chosen to stay at Shiloh is the degree of academic excellence that they have through all grades, most especially in Middle School and High School. We are extremely pleased with the academic progress of both our children.

We have been a part of the Shiloh family for eight years, it is everything we want for our child. The staff is commited to your child's education as well as thier walk in Christian faith. My daughter is so proud to be a part of SHCS, and so are we. The quality of this school is excellant.

A loving, supportive environment. Full of great role models in the older students. Teachers and staff committed beyond the call of duty. Affordable, academically competitive, well structured. Absolutely no complaints. Public middle school is such a mess, I will not even consider it for my younger child and she will attend Shiloh for middle school when she's done in elementary. My Shiloh 7th grader is the only middle school student I know who says when asked, 'My school is awesome!' Instead of, 'I hate school.'
