Such a wonderful school. High academics, top notch teachers, and feels like a family. I would highly recommend this school to anyone.

My daughters graduated from this school, and I must say that I was amazed at how far ahead of their peers they were when they attended college. Much of the work had already been covered in high school at PCS, and they were able to easily complete very detailed assignments that other students struggled with. PCS has very caring, loving teachers, who are interested in each child's well being, both academically and spiritually. My girls have told me that enrolling them in PCS was the best decision we ever made in their lives. I couldn't be happier.

My children attend the East campus and the school has been a blessing to our family. It's a Christ-centered school w/ strong acedemics as well. The staff is absolutely wonderful and extrememly dedicated. It is worth every penny and we consider it an investment in eternity. They keep Christ at the center of all learning and activities.

I know several of the staff at Portland and have been a student myself. The school is a great environment for kids because the staff really cares and the academics can't be beat. They offer a variety of extra curricular activities and have a way of encouraging students to use the talents that God gave them. A better school in the area can not be found.

Portland Christian has been home to both my children for the past 12 years. One graduated last year and one will graduate next year. PCS is college prep. The sports program is mostly for fun. I think cross country is the only sport we are very competitive in. The other sports we compete well with small schools but the public school teams are hard to compete with unless they are small like us. PCS teaches Bible and in my opinion, makes it one of the best schools in Louisville. They don't focus on a specific religion other than new testament so any Christian religion should feel comfortable. The teachers are great and really get to know and love your children here. This is a great place for any kid.

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.
