This school is very disappointing!! Many will enroll but very few remain beyond one year. The administration is ignorant to the needs of children in this day and age and teachers do not deviate from the plans that they have memorized over the years or what they have been presented by the school. It was a waste of money!

Colonial Hills Christian School is a great school for kids of all ages. We have K3 through 12th. The administration makes every effort to have a top-notch school in every area. Sports programs are for all levels. Academics will prepare your child for college, especially if he puts effort into his work. A play in the spring is open to all who want to try out. Art and music are well-developed programs that compete with other schools. AP classes are challenging. Chapel is inspiring. Teachers love the students and help them after school in help class. This year we have added clubs. We have a tight security system. Come to an Open House and see for yourself!

I am currently a student at Colonial Hills Christian School. It has been my experience that this school is great and all, but once you get into middle and high school, it gets tough. I personally believe Colonial Hills has cliques and that the teachers and faculty are a little racist and show favoritism. If you don't start there at a really young age, they most likely will take a while to warm up to you because they have so much history behind their relationships.

I am currently a second year teacher at Colonial Hills Christian School. I have loved my experience teaching here. The administration and faculty are incredible. This school is committed to teaching at the highest standards. Chapel is my favorite time of the week. We have the best speakers come speak for us! If you are looking for a Christian school with a wonderful, positive atmosphere I highly recommend you come and check us out! This is where my children will be attending school!

Colonial Hills Christian School is Douglas County's Best Kept Secret! We have been around since 1959 but most people don't know where we are and what we are about. We are a PK thru 12th Grade Christian School that emphasizes knowing Jesus Christ as personal Savior and a rigorous college prep curriculum that WILL get you ready for any college. We have graduates at many of the best mainstream colleges including GA Tech, University of GA, and many more that I cannot remember. We are a small enough school that allows better teacher/student involvement yet large enough to offer one of the best athletic programs of any Christian School around. We also have strong art and music departments. Check us out at www.chrams.org and better yet, come by for a visit and view our fine facilities. We have some terrific students and parents that are part of our family here at Colonial Hills and we would love to add you to our family as well. Come see us soon! (Yes, I am a teacher at CHCS so am possibly biased somewhat)

To reiterate what another parent stated in her comments...the school is very "cliquish". The behavior-Bullying etc. is worst than public schools. The homework is excessive and if your child is weak in an academic subject....there are no additional resources to assist your student. The mentality of the teachers and administration is "Either the student keeps up or there is nothing we can do about it". Was not worth the money...my child is so happy to not be associated with this school anymore.

My son started Colonial Hills Christian School as a pre k student. This spring, he graduated as valedictorian of his class with a 4.0 gpa. He will be attending Georgia Tech this fall. Being a part of Colonial Hills gave my son a sense of belonging and he has always regarded the school as an extended family. He was able to participate in many sports as well as other community organizations such as Student Government, Beta Club and National Honor Society. Colonial Hills gave him the Christian start that he will need to move on through the next phases of his life. We found the academics to be superior and the teachers made it easy for him to excel. We found all the teachers to be kind and loving in addition to having the education and training to help him be successful. Many teachers offer after school help classes at no additional charge. You just don't find that kind of caring and love in many schools. Thanks Colonial Hills for all the love and support shown my son in his education career.

This school is great for Academic education with a good Christian atmosphere. The students and teachers are very welcoming and want you to fit in. The school is very closely knit and very much like a family. Friends are easily made and teachers are very helpful. Athletics is ran by an excellent director. Colonial Hills is a great school to put your child in at any grade.

This school is very cliqueish. If your child does not start out at Colonial Hills it is very hard for them to acclimate. There is excessive homework(some nights it would be 6 hours). What's the point of excessive homework when the child cannot even have a normal life? During the time my child attended, I observed the kids' behavior to be just as bad if not worse than the public school kids. She was picked on, called names, and not included in any groups. I didn't find the parents to be any friendlier when I attended activities. As they say, 'People are people' no matter the environment. My child felt like a failure when she attended. She is an honor student. Mrs. Lyles was wonderful. Now that she is back in public school, she is much happier and thriving.

I can not say enough about Colonial Hills. It is an absolutely great school. My son currently attend there and he is making straight A's. Fortunantely, my son has never struggled academically, but in the event he did, the school offers help classes for those students who may need extra help. The staff is great and it feels like a family. My son has learned a lot spiritually and academically. I recommend this school to any parent looking for a good christian environment for their children.

My children went here at the beginning of their educations. Love the school. Very friendly environment. The staff was amazing! they work as a team(family) environment. The children are well behaved. The teachers teach on a higher level and give a lot of homework but it is because they have faith in our kids abilities....They were right! I wish I could have kept them there but just couldn't afford it due to my husband and i losing our jobs at the same time.
