My children have attended Cole Valley for six years, we chose this school over the local Catholic school options and I have found their administation and staff to be first class, academic standards high and discipline solid. Cole offers band, music and P.E. as well as after school enrichment classes from chess, spanish, art and sewing. Low student teacher ratios, three classrooms at each grade level allow for breaking children out by skill level, and teachers are able to play on each others strengths in enhancing their curriculum. Cole Valley participates in track and AAU and Y basketball. This school really strives to be the best and meet the needs of its student and parent population.

I attended Cole Valley from K-8th grade. Most of the teachers were great and I learned a lot. Because its a really small school, there wasn't a lot of extra-curricular activities and there weren't any social events like dances. However, there were parents invovled in everything. Overall I had a great expierence at Cole and am now doing well in high school because of my foudation at CVCS.

I am a student who went to cole from kindergarten to seventh grade. The teachers at cole are great but the rules are to restricting resulting in frequent fights at lunch as well as various other not appropriate things. In my opinion this was my fellow students trying to rebel. It is a nice school but i wouldnt want to go back.

Cole Valley Christian is an excellent school. I attended kindergarten through 8th grade at Cole, and I miss the relationships that the teachers build with their students, as well as the 'family' feel within the student body. I feel incredibly prepared for whatever I will face in my new high school, especially because of the junior high English classes that I so adored! Not only did Cole Valley prepare me mentally for life, but spiritually as well. I remember many theological discussions which I recall and apply to my life constantly. This school is a wonderful opportunity to prepare for the future while still learning and enjoying life at the moment.

My son has really flourished at CVCS. His experience in junior high here was very positive. Although the school is quite small, they have done very well in state competitions with larger schools, such as the Math counts program. I highly recommend the school. The school is non-denominational, so there isn't so much indoctrination as it is a classical education.

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.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
