dont believe the fake reviews. Three years ago, I attended Cherokee Christian School for one semester and had enough of it already. The way the socializing went about was just ridicolous. They made me feel welcome for about two weeks, and then after that made me feel like I didnt exist for the rest of the school year! Everyone who ive asked thats gone there says the only way to be 'cool' is to go there for two or three years and then you will have friends. The hypocrisy. The teachers and staff get way into our personal life and business, and some of the rules are completely unneccessary. Also, wearing a uniform gets old quickly if its not your thing. The amount of work and some of the curriculum was alright but Bible isnt a recognized course. I came into the 2nd semester and they refused to let me take Spanish class because I didnt 'sufficiently learn enough required'. So I had to make a year of Spanish credit up in the next High School I went to. I had one teacher and one staff tell me I was doing well, then the next day they had a meeting with my mom after school saying I was 'being lazy'. The only thing Christian about this school is the chapel days on Tuesday. Dont recommend.
As a formal student of CCHS and CCS after reading these reviews I am taken back at how ignorant the parents are pertaining to the actual school. The school is full of favoritism, cliques, and useless faculty. I would NOT recommend sending any of your kids to this school, ESPECIALLY the high school. There are far better academic and athletic opportunities elsewhere. One of my fond memories of this school was being forced to pick weeds out of a dirt patch (all of the high school had to do this). With promises that the dirt patch will later become of some use, only to have weeds grow in it again which made that day of unnecessary and un-academic labor to be put to waste. I would rate the faculty as a 2/5, students are a 2/5 because they are cliquey and quite frankly at the highschool level there is an aurora around them of not wanting anything to do with this school (for good reason). The actual education is a 3/5 and the athletic program is a solid 0/5.
I started kindergarten at CCS. Elementary school was great and I loved my teachers. Middle school was great too. Then I got into high school. Many of my friends left before freshman year because they had heard bad things about the high school. I tried high school and even was in the STEM program. As the year progressed my frustration increased. The teachers were not at all helpful. Many cliques formed and I felt like I had almost zero true friends. Also the STEM classes seemed to just be regular classes, nothing special. Also the academic counselor was a joke. She never made any effort to talk to me. I even asked about dual enrollment and AP classes. I changed schools after that freshman year and I am now at another private school. The teachers are so much more helpful and the academic counselor actually helps me. Also everyone at my new school is sooo much nicer than at CCSAdditionally I will be attending KSU through dual enrollment next year which I find to be very exciting. Overall CCS was good for a bit, but I do not recommend the high school.
My daughter just started at CCS this year and is in 5th grade. Before CCS, she was attending public school and I can't tell you what a blessing this school has been to us both. As a single mom raising a daughter, I had to take a look at what type of people she had around her that influenced her life. Public school was not allowing her to become a Godly and compassionate young woman. CCS has been life altering and my daughter has really been filled with love, tenderness and compassion for others. She never comes home with anxitey or drama like she has in the past. We are SO thankful that we chose CCS......best decision I could have ever made for my child.
My children have been attending CCS for 5 years. We have been so blessed and encouraged by the teachers and staff and their love for the kids. We love our CCS family!
My family and I moved to Marietta in the Summer of 2012. We chose Cherokee Christian School because of the S.T.E.M. classes and Christian environment. So far my education has been great; I feel that I'm getting the most out of my classes and that my teachers truly know how to teach the material. Thanks to this school, I got the opportunity to go to Valdosta over the Summer for the Governor's Honors Program for Mathematics (and I was accepted). My counselor has been very helpful in my college application process, and I've already applied to Georgia Tech for early admission and plan on applying to several other colleges. I'm planning on becoming a Math major at Georgia Tech and I feel lucky to be part of such a strong Mathematics department.
I am a parent of a child at Cherokee Christian School and a teacher there as well. It is a great place to teach and work. I feel very blessed to be able to teach where my child is in such a loving atmosphere where teachers go out of their way to be sure their students are successful. My child loves CCS and her teachers have been amazing. I can not imagine her going anywhere else. She is challenged academically and loved all day long.
Cherokee Christian is an amazing school!! Our family has been a part of the CCS family for 5 years. All of the teachers and staff are so loving and caring. They help my daughters strive to not only do their best academically but spiritually as well. They are a true example of Christ's love every day! So blessed and thankful for this wonderful school!!!
I am a sophmore in high school at CCS, and I've been at the school since 3rd grade. CCS is an unbelievable school, and I am so blessed to be able to attend. I have loved going to this school ever since the day I started. Everything is taught from a Biblical perspective, and everyone there is like family. The teachers are all so enjoyable, and each one has made a big impact in my life. I've heard new students testify that it doesn't take long before you feel like part of the CCS family. We are all taught how to apply our Christian beliefs to what we are seeing and doing. We are taught about the world's past in order to help us make right choices for the future. The education I get at CCS is like none other, and I have an extensive knowledge of the Bible thanks to my many amazing teachers. There are so many courses offered, and multiple extracurricular options. When I walk through the hallways of CCHS, I feel loved, safe, and surrounded my a good group of Christian buddies. No, we're not perfect, and we have our days, but we are taught to work it out in a way that glorifies our Savior. CCS is my second home on earth and I could not give it a higher recommendation.
I am in 8th grade and have been attending this school since 1st grade. There is no way to describe what his means to me. I have grown to love everyone at the school and I don't know what I would do without them. Every teacher teaches from a Biblical perspective and cares about us so much. The teachers strive to have a loving, personal relationship with each and every one of the students in my class. The love that surrounds me at this school can only be a God-given blessing. I cannot say how much I would give to stay in CCS until my last year of high school! It is such an amazing experience and has a major impact on my life. Now that I am in middle school, there is more freedom, but that doesn't at all mean that the teachers care less about you. In fact, they care about you even more, because they want you to succeed in everything. They strive for a personal relationship with the Lord and make the subjects fun and exciting (yes, even math and physics!). I want to shout out to all of the teachers that I have had. I love you all and why you have done for me :) thanks for being there for me through thick and thin. In conclusion, I LOVE CHEROKEE CHRISTIAN SCHOOL!!!!
We knew long before we had children that we wanted a christian education for our children. When it was time to look at the closest christian schools we knew Cherokee Christian would be on our list. We are local to the area and had seen the school grow. We attended an open house and were sold. We met a couple of teachers and had plenty of opportunities to ask questions. Our children are now in the 4th and 2nd grades and we are pleased with the school. They both have only known CCS.
Cherokee Christian provides not only the Christian-based foundation that I want my child to build on, but they also have teachers and a curriculum that gives superior results, and a parent base that supports the school and the students. Every teacher is committed to working with your child one-on-one and giving individual solutions for any needs, whether it is academic, social or emotional. As an example, my son was allowed to stand during portions of the class, so he could focus, rather than fidgeting in his chair. As another example, the teacher addressed instruction with the children on treating each other the right way when those normal childhood uglies were coming out. And I am always impressed with the academic background and additional training that the teachers have and the ways they work on academic issues with my children. Finally, almost all the parents are represented at almost every function. That makes a tremendous difference. It's a great school and a great group of people!
Great school for academics and has a wonderful Christ centered atmosphere. Teachers are wonderful and truly care about the students academically and spiritually. The sports program is lacking. If you have a child that is athletic and competitive you may have to find sports else where. Would love to see the school not only expand the athletic program but invest in paid qualified coaches. Otherwise, CCS is a wonderful academic, Christ centered, affordable school that my children love!
Cherokee Christian School has been a blessing to my family. I like to say that I'm getting 3 for the price of 1 because my husband and I are learning and growing along with my little boy. They are organized, great communicators that know how to focus on academics and safety while sharing the spirit of the Lord and loving my child. I consider the choice of Cherokee Christian School to be one of only a few decisions that I've gotten right. Family members that didn't understand the need for private school can see how my little boy has grown and now fully support the choice of private school. We began in Kindergarten and I pray that we will be there until the end. Every school should have the spirit of Cherokee Christian School.
Our son started the STEM program this year (ninth grade), and it is proving to be a great fit for him. This is only his second year at CCS, but he has made some great friends. His teachers have all been excellent, caring people who have already made great investments in his life. We feel so blessed to have him at CCS.
Cherokee Christian School in Woodstock, GA is a testimony to truth in education. From K through 12, CCS remains focused and delivers on their promises, by providing a Christ-centered education, along with the highest quality education standards of any private school in the area, while partnering with parents in a family-style environment. All this, coupled with a very reasonable tuition rate, is what creates great value, confident students and happy parents. You can add small class sizes, updated systems for safety and security, great teachers and a trusting environment. CCHS students have the option to enter the unique STEM program, which prepares students for success in the all important disciplines of Science, Technology, Engineering & Math. Don't overlook the Arts & Music program (supported by The Patrons of the Arts), a growing sports program, and a modern up-to-date facility. Most of the things you might expect, but you won't find many of the negative distractions that are all too common in many school systems today. Come and take a tour of the facilities and see what CCS is all about!
My children have both attended CCS since Kindergarten. My daughter is now a freshman in CCHS, and my son is a 7th graders in our middle school. This is my 7th year teaching here at CCS. I can honestly say that I have loved our experience here, both from a parent's viewpoint, as well as a teacher's. The teachers at CCS truly love the children. I have always said that I know three things without a doubt: My children are safe. My children are loved. My children are taught the Word of God on a daily basis. Although no school is perfect, what more can you ask for your children??
3rd year CCS family, Middle School. We made an outstanding choice for our child's education with CCS. Not only does our child receive superior academics led by exceptional/caring educators, she is able to experience a Christ centered education which provides her a Biblical life and world view. Administration/leadership/educators are professional, approachable, & they genuinely care about the students. State of the art security systems & building safety features give greater peace of mind. Please visit the CCS website, academics section to view the highly impressive National Test Score comparisons. HS AP classes are abundant and the HS faculty resumes are impressive. *IF you are looking for: Premier academics with a focus on future college success; safe/caring/loving environment; leadership and educators with the highest integrity, Christian values, and genuine God and 'student first' priorities; as well as an intelligent alternative to government dictated curriculum & testing mandate priorities that can distract from effective teaching & learning then CCS is more than worth the tuition.Take a closer look at what CCS has to offer. A wise and rewarding choice for you and your child.
Cherokee Christian School has helped me grow as an individual and aided me in discovering myself. I have attended for 2 years and I have built amazing relationships with the students and staff. Before CCS I had been homeschooling, so as you can imagine the change in environment was drastic. The teachers made sure I was welcomed and helped me in every way they could. My peers were also very welcoming and supportive of me. CCS is da bomb dot com!
I cannot say enough good things about our school. My children have attended for several years and each year proves to be one of positive educational and spiritual growth. We appreciate the staff- from the administration down to the teacher assistants, we feel that everyone has my children's best interest in mind. Keeping in mind there are no 'perfect institutions' in an imperfect world, we know that the staff at CCS strive hard to create an atmosphere of strong educational opportunities alongside individual spiritual growth. We are looking forward to another great year this year at Cherokee Christian!
