My daughter graduated last year from this school and now she is in Public High School and I am amazed with the Christian Values she had received during her school years at Church of The Redeemer Christian School (CORCS). Thank you Jesus for CORCS.

My son attended the 3 year old preschool program. The teacher is the most gifted I've ever had the privledge of witnessing. I continue to be grateful for the influence she has had on his life. Quite a blessing.

This is my daughter's third year at CORCS, and I am very happy with the curriculum and the strong emphasis on the Christian faith being taught in the school. My daughter is not only being taught how to succeed in academics, but also how to respect others. It is great to see the excitement and growth in my daughter. I would recommend CORCS to anyone who is looking for a school that really cares about the success of each child academically, and the and growth of character development in each child.

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.
