I wrote a review a couple of years ago about my oldest child and now my younger one attends CHCS and we still love it. The kids get one-on-one attention with the smaller class sizes, there is an open-door policy with the administration and the teachers. There is also a family feel between the teachers and the students. My eight year old still goes by to see his K-4 teacher and he still loves her and all of his previous teachers. I can not say enough about this school I would definitely recommend it if you have young children and would like to have an active role in their education.

Wow! My son is in the 11th grade and previously attended a public high school. We are struck by the differences in the environment and how this has had many positive effects. There are many changes we have noticed. His grades have improved. He mentioned that the classes are small and the teachers can show more attention to each student. Wearing the school uniform was a big change, but I realized that my son looks like a professional when dressed up. This school is preparing him for a successful career. Earlier we were concerned about the expense of a private school, but our son is doing great. We see a bright future ahead for him, and the money for tuition is well spent. Thank you, Staff and Faculty, for all you have done !

My child is in the 11th grade at Central Heights. She transferred from a public school last year. She felt that she was not getting as much out of high school as she should. My daughter and I are very happy with the school.I am very impressed with the rules and the academics that are taught. Through this school, my daughter has come closer to God while maintaining good grades. There aren't many extracurricular activities besides sports, but that hasn't changed our outlook on the school. I recommend Central Heights Christian School to as many people as possible. They have a great staff and great students. I really like this school.

This is a growing school which is getting better every year. The school presently has excellent administration which is focused on academic excellence, as well as the moral and spiritual growth of the student. The curriculum (BEKA, developed by Bob Jones University) is better - by leaps and bounds - than public schools, and will challenge your child and hold your child to high standards of academic excellence.

Standards are lacks on dress code. High school students are not challenged to Godliness although the Bible is taught as an optional class for most of the upper grades. The academics are not the best but still better than the public school.The present administration is trying to guide the school in a more Godly direction, but will continue to struggle because of the lack of faculty support.We would not recommend the school if your child is weak in his faith or is in need of an academic challenge.

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.
