Rockford Christian School has been a fabulous school for our family. Teachers work hard to meet students' needs and truly want to support children in developing their God-given gifts. Each class makes regular visits to Camp Roger (located nearby) for outdoor learning experiences that tie with the curriculum and to help them see God at work in His creation.

The school itself isn't bad but the academics are below standard. They don't have gifted and talented programming and struggle to know how to work with kids who are anything above average. Teachers are not very communicative. I think the new principal is trying to turn things around but admittedly it will take years. I would particulary avoid 4th and 5th grades - these teachers in particular have for a long time been known to parents as teaching below the standard. Kindergarten and 1st grade teachers are really great. 2nd and 3rd grade teachers are poor. Again, we love the school but moved our kids because the academics were so sub-par. The teachers may be "warm and nurturing" - the facilities may be great - the other opinions aren't totally wrong. But when you compare Rockford Christian to other schools, there is no comparison academically and really no idea by the teachers re how to truly challenge kids.

Rockford Christian is an excellent school and has a loving, Christian "family" environment. The staff and teachers are warm and nurturing and we have appreciated its small size because each student is given individual attention. It has beautiful facilities and provides many of the offerings of a larger school, including sports and other extracurriculars in which all students can be involved. This is Christ-centered education at its best.

Our three girls have attended Rockford Christian Schools (one graduated now) since 2001. We have never been disappointed, and it has been a great place for them to grow. The teachers are amazingly committed, and all value and nurture their individual talents. Great academic support/special service, athletics, and arts programs, and a strong dedicated principal. The kids grow to know each other in great community, and the families have as well.

I am disappointed to see the earlier review of RCS. I am a former parent from RCS, the only reason my children no longer attend is that we moved. Being a parent of a child that was at times difficult, I respected the way that the staff at RCS would always address the situation with love in their hearts, caring in their words & with the attitude of forgiveness that is exemplified best by our savior, Jesus. NEVER once would I have ever suggested or even threatened that a teacher must "cater to my whims and directives about how my child should be taught". I worked along side of both the staff & other parents to make sure that Christ was a central focus in anything pertaining to our children. I am very disappointed that a person would write such spite & then profess to know what "Christian values" even mean.

Rockford Christian School is an AMAZING school. They nurture children and meet all students where they are. Every class is taught from a Christian perspective and all students are treated with respect and love. The school offers many extras and includes students in organized sports beginning in 5th grade. The teachers attention to each student is highly admirable, I am so glad that Rockford Christian School is an option in the Rockford community.
