I must say this is the best school for children to grow up not only academically but also spiritually. The loving and nurturing environment this place has to offer is exceptional. My daughter went to Westside preschool from Age 2- 5 and K , 5-6 . I cannot say enough about the love and the commitment the staff has for my daughter who is talkative and overactive most of the time. SIMPLY THE BEST!

SCS is a top notch academic environment with a caring staff and administration. My child has grown in his time attending SCS and we look forward to continuing to send him there through 8th Grade. They do a fantastic job with financial assistance for those who need it. The Parent Teacher Fellowship (similiar to a PTO) is very active and extremely welcoming. We're proud to be an SCS family.

I strongly believe that my children are receiving an excellent education, both academically and spiritually, at Springfield Christian School. Our family sacrifices a lot to be able to provide such a high quality education to our children, and we believe it is worth every penny.

Excellent school, academics are extremely good. My son is reading at 4th grade level, 3 grades above his level. Staff and faculty are very involved in everything.

I am thankful that my guardian sent me to Springfield Christian School. I received a strong academic background. I have heard numerous comments like 'You can't use a calculator on this test, but you shouldn't have a problem seeing where you went to middle school.' However, you could go to any school and be subjected to cliques. I enjoyed SCS and would send my kids there some day.

Strong academics & bible teaching through 5th grade but clickish and poorly managed. Favoritism is rampant. Many students move to public middle school honors program.

We believe that Springfield Christian School is the finest school in central Illinois. Their high academics prepares students for success in high school, and their Bible-based education prepares students for success in life. With Honors Math, a modern computer lab, 8 athletic teams, Spanish at every grade level and a learning/resource program, SCS has served our family very well. SCS is a blessing.

This is a fantastic school, my daughter has been here K-3. The teachers do an excellent job of teaching and I feel she is academically at least one year ahead of her cousins in public school. Would sacrifice a whole lot in order to keep her in this school.

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.
