The Varsity football team is growing and the coaches take boys under their wings and help mentor them along with coaching the team. The school is extremely amazing and I don't have any regrets about sending my child here. She is prepared for life after high school.

My experience at CCS was less than desirable. My was enrolled for 1st, 2nd and 3rd grades. However, a few months into the 3rd grade year I had had enough. I was not going to pay to be disrespected and mistreated. The school is not progressive in their education of a certain population of minority students. The school is not culturally diversified and probably never will be. We initially enrolled here because we experienced bullying by students in public schools. Here it is the faculty and administration that are bullies. They treatment of me and my student is hypocritical of what they preach and teach. I would not recommend this school to any minority parent/child looking to be treated fairly. Please understand that the discrimination that I experienced here at CCS was not just racial. They are satisfied with merely allowing our kids to get by. Not encouraging or rewarding academic excellence. VERY DISAPPOINTED!!!!!!!!

We have been here for several years, and would not change. Great School! They have a close student/teacher interaction. These teachers are willing to help your child learn!

My daughter was in their daycare and Pre-K. I've read other reviews that talk about them putting children in a box and assuming that is the norm for all children. I constantly received calls about my daughter's behavior, but at no point were they trying to work with me to isolate what the real problem was and just wanted to put a label on her as a problem child. That was two years ago. We have since found out that my daughter is dsylexic and she is thriving in her current school. I knew something was wrong, but I wrongly believed that as professionals the teachers were there to assist me with identifying and getting her the help she needed. That will always leave a bitter taste in my mouth. Their only solution was that she needed to repeat Pre-K and that was an unacceptable option as far as I was concerned. I'm so glad I didn't listen to all the negativity they were trying to plant in my head about my child. I believe they got offended that I was challenging their credentials, but since I am my child's biggest advocate, it was in order to inquire. My youngest daughter's experience was different. She was only in daycare, but all her teachers had a love and gift for teachi

Changed from another area school in order to challenge my son, it worked, at first his grades dropped from the generous A's he was getting in public school, but thanks to excellent teachers he has pulled his average up. Excellent facilities , with new sports fields coming soon. Great communication, up to date technology and reporting systems , enrollment growing and a good value.

My son has attended CCS for 5 years. My two daughters attended ELCA and I much prefer CCS. The teachers care about the students, there is Biblical learning and instruction as well as academic instruction. Classes are small but all are racially and ethnically diverse. (This year my son had CC, AA, Indian, Russian, and Korean classmates.) The teachers make extra efforts to assist students with learning disablities. The policy on tardies is unreasonable, but that is my only complaint about the school or the people running it. My son will definitely be attending again next year. He loves it and wishes summer vacation was shorter!

First, this school is racially diverse. That's the problem. With this, the school is cliquish. The students and teachers are making uncomfortable racial discussion and racist jokes. ELCA , a nearby school I have previously gone to two years ago (I withdraw because I failed some classes) but I'm planning to return my junior year (which is next year), is less racially diverse, but it has a sense of colorblindness. Another problem is its discipline. The school is so strict in their discipline that it have gotten on my parent's nerve. For ex., my parents allowed and trusted me to wander around the school after school. However, the administrator does not allowed me to do that. They either forced me into aftercare and pay. Finally, CCS is trying to demote their athletic program. It demoted itself (even the top sports which is soccer) from the soccer-powerhouse GISA to failing league ICSGA . Overall, the school is not that bad. There are some nice people in the school and the academics are rigorous. In order for this school to improve, I would like the school to stop making racial comments and creating racial horror, liberate the school policy, and promote the school athletic program.

I am not sure if this school is racially friendly or not. It has only six African American teachers, no Hispanic teachers or asian teachers. The total employment of the school is 90% caucasian.

If your child is entering prek-5 I think CCS may be a pretty descent school for him/her.It's a kid friendly and fun place to learn the basics. The course work does not become more challenging as they get older though. The teachers in the middle and high school are not as qualified as they should be.Some don't seem to be as interested in teaching everyone as they are in being friends with certain students.And not all the teachers exhabit christian like behaviour i.g.,racist jokes,semitic jokes,discussing student's private issues(fam) with other students and attempting to humiliate students in front of their peers. Public school will offer more academic challenge. Most of the middle and high school students are coming from public schools anyway so the environment is about the same as in public school. As another parent suggested, try Strong Rock,ELCA, or Creekside. I will we won't be going back.

I removed my son from public school at the end of 2nd grade and placed him at CCS to begin 3rd grade. I was looking for him to be challenged because I find that for some reason there seem to be problem with educators and challenging children at an early age here in GA. Academically, my son is no more challenged than he was in the public school system. In fact, I'll say he's probably less challenged. He was in the SAGE program at his public school (wonderful program!) which he absolutely enjoyed. CCS does offer an abundance of athletic and social activities which is great and my son's biblical knowledge has improved, plus the teacher/student ratio is smaller. I am however, contemplating putting him back in public school or home schooling. I'm not sure that it's worth it to keep him at CCS.

My son has attended CCS since kindegarten. He has always been a bright child since preschool. I felt he has been challenged well at CCS. He enjoys school and loves his teachers. The language arts program is well rounded with a great emphasis on phonics and comprehension. I would like to see the math program a little more rigorous than what it is. This year they have implemented a gifted program EDGE (Exceptional Development in Gifted Education). I am glad to see this program added to the curriculum offering. I am pleased with Community Christian School.

Community Christian School has been a blessing for my choldren. They have exceeded in all subjects because of this school. Many parents bring there kids here and think they are getting a better school but really they are getting a closer relationship to God through the teachings. My 2 year old can count to 20, talk with over 100 different words and is polite. My four year old has exceeded my expectations with his knowledge of the teachings. I would highly recommend bringing your children to this school.

My children excelled with Bible knowledge, they were left behind in academics. There is a definite lack of leadership. Any child that does not fit into the elementary Pricipal's idea of a typical child is left out. I agree with other parents that feel if your child is 'typical' CCS will probably be good for you. My children are happier, and more challenged at public school with a loving Christian atmosphere at home. If you must send your child to a Christian school in the area, I would recommend Eagle's Landing, Strong Rock or Creekside for a good well-rounded Christian education.

Community Christian School has above average academic expectations, I was less than thrilled with the new principal appointed to the elementary level during the 2008-2009 school year. My daughter struggled with the transition to kindergarten after being at CCS since 3K and the support we received from the administration was less than acceptable. I found that when children do not fit into the preconceived rolls that CCS has picked for them, they treat them as disciplinary problems. Instead of employing good classroom management techniques, parents are contacted and asked to pick up their child. As an educator myself, I was very unimpressed with the way behavior is managed at the school. I wanted a Christ-centered education for my daughter but found that she was better rounded when attending the public school and being supported by Christian parents at home who accept her for who she is.

This is an adverage school. The quality of teachers could be better. It's not much different from public schools in the area. Children of the employees are shown favoritism and it's obvious to parents as well as students. Students in the higher grades ususally only stay a year or two. If there were more choices in the area they wouldn't have as many students.

I attended their fluffy open house in February 2008, fell for everything that they sold me and I enrolled my 2 year old son in August. From August to November, these people would call me every other day to complain about his behavior, accidents, etc. It got to the point where I didn't know if the call was an emergency or not. The teachers give preferential treatment to the students whose parents are employed there, where my child was always singled out as the troublemaker. Even choice words that we do not use at home were picked up at school by my son. Finally I withdrew him because they built up this story that my son was acting out the behavior of my older disabled son. They even went so far as to say my son needed to be 'evaluated'! They painted a picture and basically forced me to withdraw him.

CCS has been a great experience for my child. We had struggled with public schools and a larger Christian school environment for a number of years and have finally found a great place for our daughter to learn. It is a comfort to know that the children are in a safe environment and are being taught by competent, caring, and qualified individuals. I thank God for CCS everyday!

I started my child in early PK-2 in the summer as I knew it would be an adjustment. I often picked him up from class with a runny nose, his diaper would be soiled to HEAVY. I called several times but my calls were not returned. After I brought this to Director's attention on 8/21, I still did not receive any. I question....If NO COMPASSION OUTSIDE of the classroom, how much compassion is INSIDE the classroom?

Academic programs are very small, these are the only middle/high school academic programs I know of: Spanish, Geometry, and if you want to include Computer. Other classes are selected for you, such as History, Math, Science, Bible, and Literature. However, there is many extracurricular activities, but there should be more. Middle school students are forced to join Chorus, Band, or PE, my daughter is not good a PE, and has never had an interest in music, and kids harass he PE. I used to help out at school a lot, but not much anymore. The teachers ask a lot out of room parents.

I cannot speak for the past 3 years at CCS - we removed our children and sent them to public school. My children spent 3 years at CCS in early elementary school. My children are extemely advanced academically and CCS had no plan to keep them challenged. My daughter had taught herself multiplication tables in 1st grade, so how do you keep her involved in learning basic addition and subtraction? Any child that does not fit into their idea of a typical child due to academics or behavior is left out. If your child is 'typical' CCS will probably be good for you. My children are happier, better behaved and more challenged at public school.

Our child has excelled academically at CCS. He has been there three years. In first grade, he is reading at a 4th grade level. He is also ahead in math compared to other children his age in public schools. I would highly recommend CCS. The culture is very positive and we feel like our child is not only being given an good education, but he is also loved by his teachers, which is invaluable to a parent.

Unfortunately my posting is negative for academics. But positive for Biblical studies. While my children excelled with Bible knowledge, they both were left behind in academics. When we transferred to another private school further south, I found both my children at the bottom of their class. I had no idea my children would suffer academically from this school. After 2 years at another school my children are finally on track. Leadership here is lacking common vision, and integrity. I know this personally. My final decision to leave the school came after much to do with how all the fund raising was being spent. If I can't trust the people guiding my children at school they shouldn't be there.

We are very pleased with the quality of the education our children have received at CCS. The teachers are very loving and go the extra mile to help our children understand the lessons. My 8 year old had not performed well at all until we made the move to CCS. He is now an above average student. My 4th grader had not been challenged in public schools before, and her 4th grade teacher at CCS really held her accountable to perform at a higher level. I am very pleased with CCS.

We have been at CCS for 3 years. We love it! My son in in the preschool and my daughter will be going into 1st grade. My daughter was reading simple words when she left Miss Brenda's K3 class an now is reading fluently and with expression. My favorite thing about CCS is the love that is present on the campus. I could feel it when I came the first time. I would hightly recomend CCS.

We are very happy with CCS and feel fortunate that our children are able to attend the school. The teachers have been both compassionate and welcoming. Our children transferred to CCS from a New York City public school and they had a lot of catching up to do. Their teachers went the extra mile to ensure their success and today both of our children are not only caught up but more than ready to tackle their next grade levels. We feel our children are receiving an excellent education with a strong Biblical foundation at CCS.

We have two children at CCS. Our 8 year old has been there since he was three. It has been awesome. It has been a great experience for him. Our 17 year old started after his 9th grade. His GPA has improved from 2.37 to high 3's. It was a great move to send him to CCS. As with any growing school there are problems. We have had a few issues and they were handling promptly. It was a good decision for our kids education to attend CCS. Christian values are important to our family and with CCS help our children are getting taught those values..

My daughter has been going to CCS 3 years. Starting in the 9th. grade. The first two years were Great. The school has a big turn over in staff. Very unorganized, no one seems to know anything. Lack of school spirit. It was mandatory for us to purchace laptops for the students but was not told the teachers were not trained or had any software to conduct class for laptop usage. Poor leadership. They make rules as they go along. Forget the handbook it may or may not apply.

So far, we love it! Our daughter is in the 4th grade and transferred in from public schools. The transition was so smooth. With such a big change, she came in and they made her feel right at home. She actually loves school now! She even said that she never wants to go to any other school! We are so glad we decided enroll her.

I would have to differ with the previous posts. I know of many others in the same situation. We removed our middle schooler and have had to pay for a tutor to get him caught up in math. Last year's middle-school math teacher has now left the school but this year's teacher has much catching up to do. Similarly, the science teacher seemed unable to comprehend middle school material. To my knowledge, this teacher is still at the school. The middle-school English teacher at Community is excellent. Community is probably a better choice than People's, but I would recommend Eagle's Landing for a good well-rounded Christian education.

The best school ever! Currently grades extend through 11 grade, 12th next year. I am particularly impressed with Middle/High school, and must admit that is one of the main reasons we are there. CCS has the best middle/ high school principal. Mr. Everett respectfully requires all students to do their best, & follow the Lord! My child is blessed to be apart of CCS!
