I guess scholastically this school is fine. My main issue is the bullying that happened to me at the school. I know this happens everywhere, but it seems especially messed up that I faced some of the worst bullies here in my life, when this school is supposed to be Christian. The teachers did very little to stop the bullying, I basically losses of faith, if Christians act worst than then what is the point?

Isaac Newton Christian Academy used to be one of the primier Christian schools in the Cedar Rapids area. Unfortunatly this is no longer the case. The new administrator is condescending when confronted about his unfairness treatment of certain children and his staff. He does not have the facts to support his acusations. The school is losing enrollment because parents are unhappy with the administrator, specific teachers, and the overall education programs. This is supposed to be a Christian school, but the administrator do not act in a Christian manner. That is unfortunate!

Outstanding! Teachers, administration, & board that sincerely care about what matters most in helping develop a foundation. Plus, INCA prepares students for high school & college better than anywhere else in Linn & surrounding counties.

I am a past student, and I loved Isaac Newton and all the teachers and students. The Christmas atmosphere was a positive one and the academics prepared me for life outside of school. I highly recommend this school!

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.
