This is my first year in this school, and so far, I like it here. The teachers are very kind and caring. However, they can also be strict about discipline. From the first day, I made a lot of new friends. The kids in this school are very diverse, but we all accept each other the way we are. In regards of academics, this school has high standards. My only concern is the Child Care. For older kids, there is nothing to do. It might be a good idea to go to the gyms more often.

My child went here for a few years. And it's hit or miss with the teachers. Unfortunately, the last one was so bad that she dreaded going to school. As a high performing student, you'd expect her to be challenged in private school instead she was reprimanded for "reading ahead." There were a number of problems that made her experience a negative one. The good news is she's much happier now that we pulled her out.

There is no reason to pay for a private school when the schools in surrounding communities are so excellent. Also, everybody I know who goes here says it's too harsh. Some left and joined the public schools. I don't want my child in a punitive environment; school is tough enough. I want happy, healthy children and I found that in the surrounding public schools, which are superior in many ways. Also, not having to pay tuition saves up money for extra activities to benefit and enrich the child.

Listen, Paul LaDuke was a bad example, but he is removed and the school education is outstanding, the school is effective.

As a prospective parent of SCS, I keep reading reviews that the school is too Conservative. IN WHAT WAYS???

I think it is sad to read statements that parents are happy with the teacher that was caught exposing himself to children because of his academic skills?! That the "media" represented him unfairly? Are you kidding me? While I don't think it is fair to judge a school based on the behavior of one teacher I find it alarming that parents would just chose to ignore what happened. God trusted me enough to give me children - and I will do every thing I can to honor that trust by protecting them from peopele like that teacher. I just wonder how long it was going on before he was caught...

My children have been attending SCS for 3 years and I had family who also attended the school. In fact, my family was taught by the very teacher you are referring to and you are sadly mistaken by what the news media presents about the man. Judge not lest ye be judged. I have been very pleased with the quality of education that my children have received. The teachers have a real concern to see the students excel in academics and character.

So in other words, despite a "christian atmosphere" your ok with sending your kids to a school, where a math teacher, who taught there for 10+ years was caught exposing himself to his students? a school where things of that nature is ok?

Our child has been attending SCS for four years and is now in third grade. Overall we are very pleased with the academic environment provided by SCS. The teachers are great and care about the students. The martial arts program is extremely beneficial, in that SCS staff brings a unique way of teaching ninjitsu to the students. We don't have to look for daycare before and after school or during the summer, as SCS provides daycare services and summer camp, which pretty much takes care of the entire year. SCS needs to improve on the number of sports offered. It would be nice if SCS offered competitive track and field, tennis, and bowling teams.

We have to 2 children that attend SCS and we are very pleased with the results in their academic development. The administration is very thoughtful and professional. Although the students overall perform exceptionally on standardized tests, some teachers are noticeably better than others as would be expected in any school. The church does have a marked influence on the school's environment, but it has not been a problem for us. We are not Baptist, but that has not diminished our sons' experience. They learn the bible and are gaining a Christian world view which isn't "watered down," which is increasingly hard to find in our secular culture. I am confident that my children are being well educated in a safe and caring environment, which is my utmost concern.

This school is not tolerant of other religions what so ever!!!!! Save your kids the hardships they will face if you send them to SCS, it will not be a friendly environment at all and they will try to brainwash and convert your children. I attended this school and graduated from it and have seen and experienced the horrors that take place there.

my sons have been going to schaumburg christian school for 4 years now and we are very happy w/ it. the teachers are highly qualified and are not only there to do their job but to answer a calling as well. the tuition is affordable. due to my husband's health problem, we have become a single income household. we also live 17 miles away from the school but we have decided to keep our boys there for as long as we can afford to and able to. they are not only benefitting from the excellent academics, they are also taught how to be responsible citizens and most importantly, to be godly. my only suggestion will be to increase extracurricular activities and sports.

My daughter went here when she was 3 years and left by the end of 1 st grade, I was very thankful for that foundation because it was worth all the effort in keeping her there. The teachers are excellent and very friendly. Yes! The school is strict, but for a reason; which is to allow the student to excel in all areas of life and not just academics. It' a great school, and excellent foundation for any kid.

I have two daughters, one graduate from SCS and other is o 4th grade. I love the school and I am very pleased with the balance they have between academics, sports and morals. I recomend this school only for parents who have a real interest in having their sons/daughters to become a citizens with good morals and excellent oportunities in life. There's people out there who complains about the discipline, dress code (which is only modest clothes) or academics (which are high) buy hey,depends in the results you want. I would like to make a survey and see what kind of citizens are the people who graduate from schools like these and what kind of citizens are the people that were educated with low academics, no dress code rules and low/no discipline. If you are a parent who really cares for your children I really recommend you Schaumburg CHRISTIAN School

SCS is an excellent school. Most of the teachers are caring and committed, and they always try to integrate faith and learning in a way that the two concepts are not mutually exclusive.

Both my 2 kids are in this school for 5 years now. I find this school's education standards are at par with my native country's standard. In other words, they have set a high standards for both education and discipline. I have read some reviews about 'too much emphasis on religion' by parents. Probably, while doing the home work on deciding where to send their kids for schooling, they missed the important piece of information. That is, Schaumburg CHRISTIAN school, run by a BAPTIST church. I would recommend this school anyone who want their children to be successful in education and be a good moral citizen

Great faculty and good alternative for a public school education with reasonable fees, but imposing christianity/bible to young non-christian minds is nothing but a tug of war of religion.

Both my children have attended SCS since K3 preschool - My oldest is in 8th and my son in 4th. The education and curriculum is the best in the area - the children are at least a year or two ahead of the public schools in education in the area. Though a bit on the conservative side, I HIGHLY recommend Schaumburg Christian. I feel if they would ease up a bit on the strictness of some of the rules this school in my eyes would score a 10+++.

Fantastic education, overly conservative. Often students who do not attend Bethel Baptist Church, which runs the school, feel they are treated as second class citizens. Overall a pretty good school, definitely better than the public alternative.

I have been attending SCS for 2 years going on 3. The education is far above the other high schools in the area. I came from a public school and it was a challenge for me my first year, but the teachers were there every step of the way to help me. The leadership of the teachers is amazing. I not only appreciate their leadership, but also their great Christian character. I love the great emphasis on living your Christianity. The preaching is always wonderful and Bible class is something i look forward to every Tuesday and Thursday. I LOVE SCS!!!

i went to SCS for nine years and graduated. I was very blessed to have gone to this school. The education was amazing. The close one on one contact with the teachers and student was great. It made learning easier and fun. The only thing i regret about this school is that the church (Bethal) made too many descisions on what was happening in the school. The english and literature program should be a little more liberal. Thanks for the good times ;)

Schaumburg Christian School is one of the best schools in the nation! I'd probably rank it among the top two private schools in the nation. Their academic level is far above the norm. They have top of the line teachers that are very well educated themselves and have a great love for their students. Many extracurricular activities are available, especially for the high school students. SCS is well known in the state of Illinois and abroad for their high standard of music emphasis. The quality of music students that SCS produces is phenomenal. Many of the graduates go on to use their musical talent in various ways. The school also puts a premium on excelling in sports and doing your best in whatever you do. Parental involvement is strongly encouraged and teachers frequently communicate and visit with the families of their students.

The quality of this school is top-notch. The teachers are well prepared and the music program is outstanding! The school has a great atmosphere which promotes learning and high achievement. The students are challenged daily from the Bible and the teachers show true love for their students. Public schools as well as other Christian schools need to get some tips from Schaumburg Christian.

I am a grandparent, not a parent or guardian, but as an interested and involved relative, I feel equipped to speak of the excellent facility and staff of this school. Although it is very conservative in attitude (emphasis on Bible verses, wardrobe limitations such as skirts/dresses only for girls, etc.), Schaumburg Christian provided my granddaughter with a much-above-average education during the pre-school through fourth grade years she was there. It is state-of-the-art equipped.....a visit to the school during regular classes or to one of their student programs is impressive, indeed. Teachers seem genuinely fond of their students,and my granddaughter liked every one of her teachers. This year my granddaughter was transferred to a more alternative school in another city, and although I wished on many occasions that SCS was slightly more liberal, seeing what is offered in private school education elsewhere, for the same tuition, makes SCS look all the better!

As a student at SCS for a few years, I enjoyed the diversity of the student body, the excellent teaching and curriculum, a busy phys. ed. program, and a fine arts program that got everyone involved. The teaching staff especially stands out in my mind. Each teacher focused on excellence. They were funny and personal, yet held control of the classroom. I remember a science teacher in particular displaying a stubby, sputtering candle on the first day of Basic Science, and then promptly eating it. All of the class just sat there in stunned silence for a few moments, and then burst out laughing. It had been a raw potato. The teaching staff really is excellent. I thank SCS for a fun seven years!
