As a parent of a public school child going into the private school setting was very concerning, but I have to say PHCS has made the transition from public to private amazingly smooth. My daughter has had a smile on her face from day one and it's because of the school, the staff, teachers and the students! I can't imagine her anywhere else. For her to be in a school that knows each student and student needs you couldn't get in the public school system these days. This school is full of enrichment, challenging academics, sports, caring staff and students. You will not regret it at all. This school is a blessing!!

Perry Hall Christian School has not only been a thriving environment for our children, but a blessing. We were welcomed to the PHCS family after the search for a school where there would be growth in every area-intellectual, emotional, social, and spiritual and Perry Hall has have definitely fulfilled! We love the care and community that our children feel daily as it ensures us that we have made the best decision towards their future.

Growing up in public school system, I thought I would raise my children in public schools as well. After my daughter experience the K3 and K4 program at Perry Hall Christian School which was a positive experience I proceeded to send her for kindergarden to the public school. After three months away from Perry Hall Christian School, I came to the conclusion my daughter as well as myself was missing something. With that said, I transferred her back. PHCS, is much more then a religious school. They excel on the educational side. The feeling of not being just a number is one of the many reasons why PHCS stands out from others. I am so thankful to be a part of PHCS and I look forward to seeing my son attend there in the fall. Very blessed, Jessica Jones

We LOVE this school and are very thankful for it. We have 3 children who attend from high school to middle school. We appreciate the caring and godly people who work there and who partner with us to teach our children Christian values. The school is constantly striving to improve the whole educational experience, from academics to spiritual maturity to athletics to community service.

This school is not only a revolving door with teachers, but has allowed my son to be bullied for 2 years. Finally without any resolution from the school my son had to stand up for himself on his own because of a lack of disciplinary action which led to a suspension. My advice is to not allow your child in any environment that is unsupervised and with a lack of discipline.

I have a K5 and a 4th grade student at PHCS, WE LOVE IT. Great Staff that will go out of there way to help a student that may be struggling in a subject. I could not of asked for a better staff that is so loving and kind to my girls. If you are looking for a Christ center school that has strong values and moral and will go over and beyond their duties, PHCS is the place to be.

I am not only proud to teach at PHCS but I am a parent as well. We are a military family and my children have been to many public schools. When I accepted the job at PHCs, I knew my children would attend. I love the Christoan atmosphere that is present everyday in the school. My children makes friends everywhere and are good students but I felt I was losing them in the public system. I saw the spark in all of them this year and I know it is due to the teachers and staff of PHCS. They are thriving more than I ever dreamed of and stepping out of their comfort zone. PHCS has unlimited potential... The faculty is amazing and I cannot even imagine how this school will grow spiritually and academically in the next few years. I feel blessed rthat our family is a part of it.

I am excited to see that my grand-daughter enjoys learning and that there is spirit of love and encouragement for all of the kids at PHCS. It is comforting to know that she is in a safe place surrounded by other godly kids and parents, and that her teachers really care about her. It is also important for me to know that she is receiving a Christ centered education.

My children have attended PHCS for two years and their time at the school has been a tremendous experience for our family. Having both completed post-graduate work, my wife and I encourage academic achievement in our home. PHCS offers a strong, biblical curriculum in a culturally diverse setting allowing our children to grow spiritually and academically. The faculty encourages them to excel by cultivating their hearts and minds.

PHCS has been such a blessing to our daughter and family. We were very burdened at the prospect of our daughter starting school, but ALL of those troubles melted away on our first visit to the school's open house. Since our daughter started kindergarten our opinion of the school has grown even more positive. Everyone we've come in contact with has been extremely friendly. The teachers are open to parent communication at any time, they're very knowledgeable and great with the kids. The school has many different functions to keep you involved and to get a feel for what your children are doing and they're great at keeping the parents informed. I absolutely love this school and I look forward to sending my daughter here for many more years!

I am a former student of PHCS. I went there for grades fourth through seventh. I hated the school. I'm African-American, and noticed lots of racism in the school. They wouldn't celebrate-- let alone mention Black History Month or Hispanic Heritage Month. They don't encourage diversity whatsoever, and are very stuck in their ways. Also, many of my classmates were failing or were below average. The teachers weren't great (at all!), just for the simple fact that a lot of them were not certified for the class they were teaching. They had many teachers teaching classes that they really didn't know how to teach. The teachers never actually gave real work in class. Instead, they would make us write notes the whole class, and then, send us home with two and three hours of homework every night. However, if you want your child to attend a school in a very Christian environment, then PHCS is great for that. Other than that, this school gets NO stars from me.

My 2 children have been enrolled in Perry Hall for their elementary school years and we are looking forward to middle school! I am impressed with the principal's commitment to excellence. The teachers are knowledgeable, understanding and dedicated to seeing each child succeed. The class sizes are small. The amount of diversity depends on which grade you are referring to. Office staff are friendly and helpful and the principal is easily accessible. They do a great job of providing a Christian framework for education without sacrificing quality. We plan to enrolls our youngest child in their preschool when she is old enough.

One of the great things about PHCS is the staff. The teachers are devoted to their students and the Lord. As a parent, I have been pleased with the ease of contacting teachers, their quick responses and their caring attitudes as they partner with me in raising my children to be thinking and caring individuals of our community. I have also found that the teachers are always willing to go above and beyond in providing instructional training that is suited to individual students. The teachers at PHCS are 5 star quality!

I love PHCS. I have 3 children in the school. We have been part of the school family for almost 6 years. I love the commitment of the teachers, the hospitality at the front desk, the students that attend the school, and their parents (most of whom I am well acquainted with). The academics are good and you can't put a price on the spiritual/moral lessons. My husband and I are both college graduates. I graduated from TU and my husband graduated from JHU. We intend to send our children to college following their education at PHCS.

Great School, my last child graduated this year and the Christian foundation he received, along with the academics has made the transition to college extremely easy. If your looking for a great private school that offers a lot of extra-curricular activities, PHCS is perfect!

We currently have three children at this school and we love it. The teachers and staff members have left a great impression on us. The fact that the vast majority of teachers are certified (and some have advanced degrees) is very impressive. We have also noticed that every teacher with which we have had the pleasure of working has a strong faith. Recently, we have been especially encouraged by the exciting future plans that have been shared through newsletters, the website, and conversations with staff and board members. The fact that increasing academic rigor is at the forefront of the school's plans is very important to our family. Perhaps the thing we like the most is that our kids love it! We highly recommend PHCS!

As a parent of a middle schooler, I am very pleased with Perry Hall Christian School. My son is receiving a quality education from fantastic teachers. He is being challenged to become more self-disciplined and growing academically and spirtitually. Most importantly, he is being taught from teachers who love and serve the Lord and have a Christian world-view.

I have three children. One is a graduate of PHCS, one will graduate this year, and one more still in PHCS for several years. I am proud of the education that my children have received and are receiving at PHCS. The teachers do care about the students on a personal level. The educational standards have improved dramatically since the negative review in 2004. My graduate has done exceedingly well at a good college. My soon-to-be graduate has excelled in the new honors program including Calculus. My kids have also learned to love God and people while at PHCS. Well worth the sacrifice.

As an elementary school, PHCS gets 5 stars. It has a tremendous environment and atmosphere, as well as outstanding faculty who genuinely care about their students in and out of the classroom. The same can be said about the upper grades, however the academic challenge may not be as great as some would like. It will be great for most students, but high-schoolers that would like to prepare to attend a university that has stringent and demanding academic standards may be better served at a private prep school.

Perry Hall Christian is fantastic! The teachers are wonderful and they really care about each and every student. They go that extra mile to help your child in any way they can. The teachers and the staff want your child to succeed, they want your child to be ready for college (any college) and they offer an excellent curriculum in a positive environment to ensure all of those things. PHCS has a great music program, art program and a wonderful computer lab. The gym teacher is fantastic and well organized. PHCS may not be home to an expensive Calvert Hall sports arena but our kids are committed and enjoy PHCS' sports just the same. I am a proud parent of three PHCS students. My children have been in other schools, and I will tell you from experience that PHCS offers the very best in private school education!

Fellow Parents, although I know this is a bit unusual but I thought I'd give my piece about this school. PHCS is excellent for students that want to go into missions right after highschool or later in life. However, it is not a college prepatory school. I know and have talked with many students who are graduates from this school including myself. We all have the same story. We struggle to keep up in college due to the inadequacy curriculum. It appears that students who go on to Christian schools from PHCS do fine. But the story is far differnt for those children that later attend public colleges and universities. I will not come right out to say that PHCS offers substandard education but...it's close. This is simply something to keep in mind as you make your decision to enroll your children.
