Ames Christian School is a shining star for student education, a disciplined environment, and for quality teachers and staff who care about each student. We have three children that attend from preschool to 6th grade and could not be more pleased with their development. Our children are academically and spiritually ahead of the vast majority of children their age. We have been blessed to be involved in their education as Ames Christian School administration encourages involvement because they know this allows children to flourish.

We transferred from public school to Ames Christian mid-fall semester 2008-what a great school! Smaller classes, individual attention to increase learning, and the 'can-do' attitude that used to common in America.

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.

Oops! We currently do not have any teacher information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.

What makes a great teacher? Study after study shows the single most important factor determining the quality of the education a child receives is the quality of his teacher. Here are some characteristics to look for »
