I am a BP graduate. I was quite prepared for college and able to test out of basic college classes because of how well prepared I was. Several students who graduated BP were able to do the same thereby saving money and time. Most importantly I was given a solid start in life and taught Gods truths which have helped me as a wife and mother. I now send my children there and am thrilled with the education they are receiving in a safe, loving environment! Go Wildcats!!!!!
I'm not really an academic person. I found this out at Baptist Park. I went there from grade 1 to grade 7 (we had to move). I must say, I learned more at a public school than I did at Baptist Park. I think the big highlight of the whole school is its awesome art program. I enjoyed it immensely. I think I really learned to discipline myself more at public school to get my work done and handed in on time. It's nice that this school is smaller, so everyone knows each other. I also didn't like the fact that my classes were chosen for me. When I moved and started going to public school, I had so many more classes to choose from, and that's how I got into the field that I'm in now. So sure, you could send your kids to this school, and they will still get an education, but I would urge you to look elsewhere.
Great place to grow kids--spiritually and academically. Worth the investment in my children's future!
I went to BP from 10-12 & while I posted Neg remarks in 05 I must say that I was still very angry at some things that had happened with the school/church. But now that I am a parent and a wife and I have a bigger view of things, I can now see how crucial it was that I was at BP. They helped me round out they helped me come out of my shell and be the confident woman that I am today. I wish I could take back the horrible/immature review that I posted but I can't. I do recommend BP to anyone and I think that you will do well. I believe you will do even better if you start out there and continue from pre K -12th. Megan (hildebrand) Edney
I went to Baptist Park for my senior year of High School. It was the easiest year of my life, because I didn't have to learn anything! At the time it was great, but now I realize how important a real education is. If you want your kids to do well in college in the future, don't send them here.
I am a graduate of Baptist Park and I have children that attend. The leadership of this organization is outstanding. They are dedicated to giving my children an excellent Christian education. They really care for the students and are concerned with their spiritual development. I believe I had an excellent education and I am confidant that my children will get the same.
I have children in all three levels of Baptist Park. I believe that the education my kids have received has been superb. They have truly been challenged academically. The teachers in the elementary school are wonderful, loving and caring. Unfortunately, I am not as overall pleased with the middle and high school teachers attitudes. Please know there are some awesome teachers in the school at those levels that truly display a caring Christian attitude but unfortunately there are a few teachers that display un-Christ like attitude. Children that are not strong in their own Christian walk could look at these attitudes and get turned off. There is not a perfect school but we should keep trying!
I have had children attending Baptist Park for 5 years. It is a wonderful school that is very challenging academically, rewarding spiritually and it has the best bunch of kids of any school I've ever known. The teachers are caring and the parents are great. What touched me the most, was when I attended a parent/teacher conference, the teachers prayed first! Wow! I would recommend this school to anyone who wants an education for their children that won't let them just slide by, but encourages them to do their best!
Very organized and structured with a nurturing Christian atmosphere. They do everything to make the children succeed. Tuition also includes after school tutoring. My daughter has attended for fourth and fifth grade and is doing better than ever and I never worry any more when I drop her off in the morning.
I happen to think that Baptist Park is a wonderful school. The way that some of these graduated student sound makes me think that they just want to hurt the school. I happen to attend BPS and know that they are very strict but I know that I am recieving an extremely good education. I happen to think that the students who say that they did not recieve a good education were not applying themselves. This school sets its standards high and is not the type to let you just sail by without some hard work. If the students did not apply themselves, I don't believe that they should blame the school for their own mistakes. I will admit that to be at the top takes work, but what is accomplishment without having to fight for it.
I have an elementary student who has attended BPS for the last five years. I have been very impressed with this school and I believe that they set high standards for their students. As a public school teacher I can strongly state that BPS does a very good job in preparing the students for college, but the students have to be willing to apply themselves as well. BPS has high expectations (as all schools should). Most of the teachers are very friendly and I have only had a couple of minor issues in the last five years and in my opinion that is to be expected. I would strongly recommend this school to anyone looking for a school with a Christian atmosphere and highly set standards. This school does require a lot of parent involvement (a lot of homework and extra help studying) but it is worth it!
Baptist Park School is wonderful! I have 4 children, and all have attended BPS (two still do!). The teachers and staff are great. I'm the elementary secretary and I see first hand how the teachers work so hard with each and every student...giving particular care and attention to struggling students. It is such a blessing to see the children grow in the Lord each and every day. If you are looking for a wonderful Christian education for your child(ren)...I would recommend BPS 100%!

Although i didnt like the fact that i didnt get a good choice of cirriculum, the church atmosphere helped me later in life. I found myself looking for answers. And my faith helped mr through. Funny, i thought i wasnt paying attention all those years. Ps- mr price rules- hes the only teacher that treated me with any respect when i went to a game after i had graduated. Str8 edge 4ever.
I am attending BP and I love it! It offers a great education in a truly Christ-centered atmosphere. Everybody is like family there. Every school may have its flaws, but at BP, the good outweighs the negatives by far. As graduation approaches, I am confident that I will be prepared for college because of the preparation and assistance that was generously provided by the school. Go Wildcats!
I have 2 children currently enrolled at BP (a senior and a middle schooler). I'm impressed by the Christ-like atmosphere by not only the staff, but parents and students as well. At BP, they not only provide a quality education, but they also desire to see students as individuals who succeed academically as well as spiritually. My children praise God daily for the privilege of attending Baptist Park. They have been challenged academically, spiritually, and physically so positively that we are sorry to see the school year end. I still cry when I think of wasted time spent not attending BP. -Denise D.
I do not believe the negative reviews on this site. My child has attended BP for the last 5 years, and will be held back this year because he is not applying himself. Although I am not happy to pay another year of tuition, I am grateful they realize he is not at the level he needs to be at to go on to the next grade, instead of just passing him through. BP is well above public school education and they hold children accountable to Christian beliefs. However, I am worried about the time I hear is involved in homework in the upper grades. BP absolutely loves parental involvement and would never turn a parent down for wanting to be involved with the school. -CP
I graduated in 2000 and even though I received a steller English education everything else lacked many areas. I entered College with a 7th grade math level because BP kept letting me slide by. What a favor. And now that I am gradutaed its like they want nothing to do with you. I know the rest of my classmates feel the same way. There are a few teachers that are like family but man oh man once you start trying to chat with the people in the office it is like beating your head against a wall. It is sad. I for one will not recommend for people to go there. Go to Inter City you will at least get a fair education and excell in more areas.
I went to Baptist Park High School. I graduated in 01, and am currently attending college at a University just outside Chicago. When I first started college I was so behind in English, Math, and Science because of the poor education that I receieved at Baptist Park. Excellence in Education...HA! yeah right.
My son received an excellent education while at Baptist Park School in Taylor. The teachers and principal worked with him to get him ready for college, which he wasn't made ready for while attending the public school system. He was also able to excel in baseball and basketball, which he also wasn't able to do in public school, due to the number of students, politics, and competition there. I just wish I would have gotten him in Baptist Park sooner, instead of having waited until high school. When a child leaves Baptist Park for college and to face the world, they are well prepared academicly, morally, and spiritually. I am proud of Baptist Park, what they stand for, and their accomplishments.
