Cedar Valley Christian's purpose is to assist parents with their biblical responsibility to raise their children in the discipline and instruction of the Lord. It is a pre-k through 12th grade school and is a nondenominational Christian school that has students from a wide variety of churches.
We have two resource teachers. Our k-3 resource teacher specifically works with students who have reading struggles. She uses the Orton-Gillingham method of reading instruction. She also does DIBELS testing three times a year (k-6 grades) to spot kids who have reading struggles, and then gives brief weekly comprehension work to those who scored poorly in grades k-6. Our other resource teacher works with 4th-12th graders who have a variety of learning issues. One main area that sets us apart academically in elementary is in reading/phonics. Our kindergarten, first, second, and fourth grade teachers all are certified in the Orton-Gillingham method of teaching reading/phonics and use it in reading, phonics, spelling, and indirectly in all other subjects. Being able to read, decode, and comprehend well help students in all subject areas.
I have the privilege of serving as a substitute teacher at Cedar Valley Christian School, primarily in junior high science and algebra and high school science. I am most impressed by the character and thirst for learning of the students. The teachers are dedicated to providing the best instruction for each student in a Christian environment. There is strong parent support for the school community. In how many schools do students thank a substitute for teaching them? I have only discovered one-Cedar Valley Christian School.
I have been at this school for as long i could remember. I just love the school. the teacher are nice and the students are even better. I am now in high school and i love it.
Cedar Valley is a great school. I have two children there - one in upper elementary and one in high school. The class sizes are great, it is a very uplifting environment, and the teachers are extremely dedicated. Students are held responsible for their actions and choices. We found many of these things lacking in the public schools locally. The school is small enough that it feels like a large extended family. Parents know each other and routinely help out when asked. Everyone - staff, parents, and students pull together to further the education of all students in the school. It has helped my children become more well-rounded individuals
