Posted June 5, 2007

My son has attended Southview Christian School since kindergarten. In fact he was in the very first kindergarten class and is now on his way to 5th grade. Regarding academics,he is challenged daily. Although not crazy about doing school work/homework, he enjoys going to school & hates to miss school 'because I cannot afford to get behind' is what he told the pediatrician when he was ill. I love the small multigrade setting & how the kids mentor one another, I feel that Mrs. Hanson and Mrs. Leech REALLY know my son. It is important to us that the values we are instilling in our son is reinforce daily at school & to his peers. The kids worship every morning & Pastor Hiner is there, every Tuesday morning by 8AM (his favorite time of the day haha) with cheerful smile to greet the kids.

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.
