Black Mountain Academy has moved to 980 American Pacific #104 Henderson, NV 89014 and is a wonderful school.

Extremely disappointed..... I paid them to educate my child. When I enrolled him in public school he was a FULL YEAR behind. I had to hire a tutor to get him caught up. He had straight A's at their so-called school. Check credentials... only one of the teachers has a bachelor's degree.

My daughter and I moved out here several years ago. She was going into 1st grade at the time. Due to the fact that I did not know much about the school system here and really didn't hear great things about the public school system, I looked at Black Mountain Christian Academy. It was a wonderful experience. Location was great and the Principal of the School really worked with me and my finances to allow the enrollment of my child. I have had my daughter in a previous Christian School which was also a great experience so I knew after meeting Mrs. B and other staff members that she would fit right in. With God being included in her everyday curriculum and alot of love from Sharon and others she excelled! Please remember that looks are deceiving. So when you drive by be sure to stop in if your looking for a great school who teach kids how to be great people.

Quite disappointing actually. The consistency is lacking, supervision is basically older students watching younger students, inexperienced staff, under-educated teachers, not enought to do to keep the students interested, students seem bored, lethargic and there is just not enough growth, not enough students of the same age/grade for making friends and sharing experiences. Favoratism is rampid and unless you shove yourself into the fold you get let out.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

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.

American Indian/Alaska Native 0% 1%
Asian or Asian/Pacific Islander 0% 6%
Black 0% 10%
Hawaiian Native/Pacific Islander 0% 1%

Oops! We currently do not have any teacher information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.

What makes a great teacher? Study after study shows the single most important factor determining the quality of the education a child receives is the quality of his teacher. Here are some characteristics to look for »
