My son has ADHD and they have been very understanding and accommodating! They have a wonderful resource center.

To rate a school based on a holiday given on a gifted historian~ who regarded education as top priority, is off. I firmly believe, as many others he would want children to be educated on such a day, not at home playing on devices, internet & cell phones while parents are at work. They learn of him, as well. The area the school is in, is a predominatly white, so children aren't "hand picked" whatsover. The numbers are comprable to their surroundings. In fact, local private schools such as St Mary's & St John's has the same/ less racial ethnicit. I have 3 children here & have had over 10 teachers. I can't say anough about the level of education, spiritual growth & am daily impressed by the teacher's care and level of education. Middle school is wonderful! Much is expected, the technology is wonderful (esp without state funding) and things like worship night & being responsible for your fellow peers are priceless. The discovery center to help your child who is behind (not to the brink of failing as public schools) has been utilized for 2 of my kids. They are receiving ONE on ONE education if the typical classroom setting isn't working. Also, my kindergarder is reading! LOVE!

Agreeing with the reviewer above about the LACK of racial/ethnic diversity at Crown Point Christian School. The teacher mix seems to be mainly white female with a few white male teachers. Surely (in this bad economy) they could hire some quality Christian teachers of other races/ethnic backgrounds. After our local public schools (finally) started taking off Martin Luthur King day a few years ago, our child would be told by public school friends each year ... "Your school is racist." How do you respond to that??? I don't think Crown Point Christian School intends to be racist...I think...they do not THINK--- about the increasingly diverse area they live in. There are kind, decent Christian people at that school. They have improved academics and expanded their extracurricular activities. They have a beautiful new school. My impression...once they left the nondenominational, somewhat diverse church which rented them space, they got LESS diverse. I should have have pulled my child to send to a more diverse school...at least in junior high...had I to do it again. Children need to see the Christian Faith acted out by persons of truly diverse backgrounds.

This school is very modern and the technology is great, but diversity is a huge problem. This school is one of the few schools in session on Martin Luther King's birthday and some of the teachers have told the students that it is better to attend on that day to "LEARN" about Mr. King. This would be acceptable if they showed the students movies about civil rights or had specials programs on that day, but that is not the case. There are several cliques at the junior high level, which makes students who are not in any cliques feel isolated. I expected this form of behavior in a public school setting, but not at a Christian school. I can only pray that the administration at this school will implement activities and programs that address TRUE diversity and discourage students at the junior high level from forming cliques and isolating students, then and only then will I increase their rating.

This school is like a breath of fresh air! I am so glad we started sending our child here. It is such a huge improvement over the local public schools in Crown Point. The teachers and administrators we have dealt with are honest and actually try to help parents and students. It's nice to have the support you need and the respect you deserve. Mutual respect was absent in the public schools, but is very present here at Crown Point Christian! It's so much easier to help your child when you are all on the same page and not trying to play the 'mind games' that they play in public schools because they know you are an educated parent and they want to avoid you. It makes a huge difference to be around loving and supportive Christians as positive role models for your child. My child's self-esteem has soared since he started attending this school! I would highly recommend it. It is worth the money to get a quality Christian education and preparation for the future without having to worry about your child's safety or that people are just simply trying to get through their day and get to summer like they are in public schools. What a great choice to attend this school!

I am an eighth-grader at CPCS and to be honest... this school has given me everything. Great teachers, students, and principals are just the start. Without this school, I would be nowhere. It is a great Christian society with the nicest people on the planet. The academic program is flawless; it's not too challenging or too easy. It is the most Christ-centered school out there; an example: they use something called "Love and Logic" which is a program that teaches kids to solve their own problems, not just go home with a piece of paper that requires the signature of a parent/guardian. I love this school.

...Continued from the previous comment , He's a happy boy with great grades now that we're in a different school I kinda regretted sending our son to CPCS .Our son loves going to school , but , If he were to go to this school still , i am afraid he would ended up hating school , just because all the negative remarks that he got over there . I guess it's a bad thing if your child is really smart and learns fast , because once he gets bored , the teachers / principal would say your child being very distractive , needs medication , and yet they wouldn't do anything to move forward , to challenge his bright mind .

Our child is just starting out. We feel very satisfied. The faculty is very professional and creative. I sense a sound Christian atmosphere and a commitment to academics and cultural development.

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.
