This was not exactly our idea of a "Christian school." There's a strong sense of arrogance around some of the leaders of the school, but we didn't have as many problems with most of the teachers. The same leaders show favoritism towards some students and pick and choose which children they "like" and which they don't...and if they decide they don't like your child, and he's not a favorite, it's a nightmare. It's like they gang together to harass the child. Also, There's tons of work and homework and the children aren't allowed to be kids. They look for every possible reason to pull a recess,or write lines, or a silent lunch, or add extra homework even though there's already 3+ hours daily. There was no time for my son to have a life. We would just have to MAKE him go to school. he hated it, and quite often, he would come home crying. The best thing I can say about SCS is that the plate lunches were decent lunches, however they're so expensive! I would strongly encourage parents considering this school to shop around. They all put up a good front at interview time, but be ready for change after the contract is signed.

I have to disagree with the post that said there is not enough stimulation in younger grades. My son attended kindergarten at SCS last year, and we were MORE than pleased. We were thrilled! The teachers are absolutely wonderful - my son was very shy and introverted, but he warmed up to his teacher so quickly. And they have a wonderful opening assembly each morning that gets the children moving, singing, and having a good time. They also have just as much play time as I remember having in elementary school. It is still a small school but is growing in leaps and bounds! They are bringing in new extracurricular activities each year and even started a violin program this year! I can't wait to see what else God has in store for this school. We feel so fortunate and blessed to have found it for our son.

Academically Starkville Christian is great, your child will be above both Starkville Academy and Sudduth elementary (and I have knowlewdge of both with my other children). However, in the younger classes--there is not enough stimulation of creativity--just sit-sit--work-work. If you have a child who likes to sit still 6-7 hours of the day-you are ok--if your child is active--think twice.

My Grandson attended for 7 years. I cannot say enough good things about this school and the teachers. They are all like family and truely care about the child. They practice good Christian qualities in and out of the school. The lessons learned are the best. They are paced to get the child to reach their full potential. The principal isn't bad, either. Our experience there made me believe in education once again. Worth more than it costs by far!

Our child has attended since kindergarten and it has been a great experience. The teachers and staff really care about the students and provide an excellent environment for spiritual growth.

Overall my impression of the school is excellent. My son receives a good balance of both Christian and scholarly education. Their after school program is a convenience that cannot be overlooked for the working family. We are not a regular church going family, but my son is the one who prods us to church, and he is only 6. Not bad.

Starkville Christian is a wonderful place to receive a Christian education. The teachers are godly examples for the children, the curriculum is excellent, and the children are like family to each other.
