Capitol City Baptist School5

With all due respect, as I read some of the reviews stating the sad nature of the school, I must say I disagree. We currently have our children enrolled in the school and I have to say it is a great school. With the direction common core is going with a "one size fits all" style of education, CCBS is a great alternative. As a parent who is actively involved in my children's education, I can say that there are absolutely no issues with vulgarity or immodesty in the school. The kids have had a great attitude about school. They look forward to going and I'm not lying. :) They love school. And the kids are not sheltered from what they will have to face in the world, instead they are taught how to deal with it using Biblical standards. So if you are seeking a good quality, Christian education where your child will get the attention they need, I'd strongly recommend the school.

Capitol City Baptist School features K though 12th grade. It has a full range curriculum with extremely high academic ratings. There are multiple buildings, large gymnasium facilities and other sports venues on campus which occupy over 30 acres. located between Lansing and Holt Mi. The standards of excellence inculcate not only scholastic and college preparation achievements , but moral, physical, life and leadership principles. Historically, a very high percentage of It's graduates have gone on to get college degrees. Special Tuition programs have also been created to make this private school affordable to as many people as possible who realize the importance of sound education with high standards.
Just take a visit and look at the violations that students would have in public. Start with dress code then see if they even know how many full time teachers? One plus principal. Which has left, quit or whatever three times plus four or five weeks of substitutes. What a mess. I've seen students enroll and leave repeatedly, within a week
Because of a low student count, the kids get more individual attention. The curriculum is very challenging, so the graduates are prepared for college. Many graduates have tested out of classes (saving money). I know because I was one of them. ~graduate and parent
I think that this school has a lot to work on. I know that a lot of people appreciated this school for what it once was, but as it is now, things have got to change. The administration and most (most I say) teachers are very pushy with their own views and takes on the Bible, yet they let so many things slip. If you're going to run a strict school, run it strictly. Don't let girls walk around like tramps, or boys talk about vulgar things in the middle of class. Not to mention there's a drug problem there that I'm sure half the school is oblivious to. If you don't put in to the school, you won't be getting much out of it. Also, the academics don't prepare you for college. I'm a current alumni, still knowledgeable in the school.
We have been at CCBS for several years. The integrity of the personnel is very high, as well as the quality of education my children have received for the last seven years. CCBS is a place of excellence in every way - I won't send my children anywhere else.
My youngest daughter went to and graduated from Capitol City Baptist Schools. She was well prepared for her college years. All of my grandchildren that are in the Lansing area are enrolled in CCBS. They are far ahead of other children their age, each one was reading before they finished kindergarten. They look forward to school each day, and love their teachers. I could not be more happy with the experience we have had at CCBS involving both teachers and administration. I would highly recommend this school to other people.
