Be very careful before putting your child here. Read the student handbook carefully. This is a very punitive and harsh environment. The leadership is vapid.

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.

My children have been in SCS for about 5 years. They started from preschool. I am thankful to God that a school like this exists. It is a blessing to have world class education that is affordable in a caring and loving environment!!!

I am very pleased with the education my children have recieved at SCS. While I may not completely agree with every aspect of the administration's beliefs, I can't understand others whining about it-especially since they chose to send their children there.

My kid has been in this school for 3 years and I am planning to pull her out, This school has OK academics but my biggest consern is the emphasis on religion. They have a very very conservative point of view on it and to say the least it sometimes feels fanatic in nature.

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!!!

Schaumburg Christian School is a great school. I highly recommend it. The values and the conservativeness are helpful tools for the students in the long run.

I always liked the curriculum of the school. But I did not like how conservitive the school was. It also has little extracurricular activities.

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 ;)

Its very nice school but the time for bible study is too long for younger kids. If its less, they will become more popluar

I feel it's best school academically. They should not be teaching Bible/religion so much. That way I am very much disappointed.

Outstanding school. Education level is one year ahead than the best public schools. Could ease on bible and religious preaching.

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. Excellent!

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.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
