Looking at Calvary Christian School from a parents view on its High Standard towards education and the Christian way of life is what I am looking for in my child's development. I have found it here at Calvary!

Both of my children have been at Calvary since kindergarten. One is graduating this year and the other is in the 9th grade. They love this school and would not consider going anywhere else! The teachers and administration are great and the church is so supportive. The Christian example is evident. The school is small and depends on parental help and involvement- but that is what makes it the great school it is!

I have a daughter that is in the 11th grade now. She loves it. The student to teacher ratio is like 13 to 1. She gets all the help she needs in the classroom from her teachers. The school just got a new Headmaster this year. He very structured and committed to excellence. As a parent I would highly recommend Calvary to anyone.

As a product of this school who will soon have a child of my own, I'm happy that he won't have to go to such a worthless institution. I remember my fifth grade teacher, who was later made principal, openly mocking me in front of the class. Apparently her "Christian" values are such that they include picking on little kids.

I would not recommend anyone send their child here, It is the worst mistake I ever made to move mine to this school. The drama is much worse than public school. It has been a nightmare!

This school is a socialite school. If you dont work here or have a friend that works or go to that church your child will either be filtered out or be treated differently. Trust me, I have had heck with this school, dont waste your money!!

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.
