Most of the teachers at Central Baptist School do a very poor job at teaching. Some teachers give the students the exact questions and answers to their test two days before it will be taken so all the student has to do is memorize a few answers. Open-book testing is a common occurrence as well. Very few of their teachers actually have teaching degrees- the ones that do graduated from an unaccredited Bible college. As far as the "strong spiritual environment," they focus on teaching children to believe and obey what the authority tells them more than anything else! They definitely underemphasize Jesus' teachings on loving God and loving others (which Jesus says repeatedly is the greatest commandment of all.) *I think that this is probably due to the fact that they themselves don't understand how to truly love others.* This school (and the church associated with it) is cultish; If you don't believe and do exactly what they teach, then they don't want you there. They will try to brainwash your child in the name of Christianity (which is one of the furthest things from Christianity I've ever heard of.) I apologize if this offends anyone, but this is the most honest review possible.
Central Baptist School offers an amazing academic challenge to their students. Their student body tests above the national average every year on their Stanford Achievement Tests, and the 10th graders this past year all testes above average on their ACT. I am proud to send my children to a school where they will be pushed and encouraged to learn not only academics, but also God's Word. They have an amazing staff that truly desires to see your child succeed.
This is not a good school academically. If your children are not trying to pursue a preaching or teaching career I advice them not to go to Central
My children attend this school. It is a great Christian environment that excels in academics
The best - the only - school to send your children to if you want to raise a generation of respectful and God-fearing young people, the same kind of young people your parents and grandparents were!
