good academics; much homework; high expectations of students; little heavy on the bible and conservative views.

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!

Overall, I am very pleased with SCS.The teachers are very caring and patient.The standards are very high. The children appear to be happy and balanced. However,the amount of homework is a bit much at times. A more diversified teaching staff would be ideal, more reflective of the student body. I highly recommend the school.

My son has been a student at SCS since 2000 and it has been the best possible school and situation for us as a Christian family trying to raise our child in a loving, Christian environment. The staff is loving, helpful. This is truley a superb school & staff on every level. I give this school my highest rating in all catagories. I plan to send my child to SCS for the duration of his education. The quality of education and standards is above reproch. Mr. Thaxton & staff - well done, keep up the excellent work. Thank you and may God bless you all.

Great school! My son has been attending since preschool and he is now in the 3rd grade. He is well ahead of other children his age that attend public schools. Schaumburg Christian has high expectations for the children but they are resonable expectations.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

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.
