As a parent my son gets a superb, well rounded education that not only teaches him to read, write and solve mathematical problems with rigor and real world application but he grows as a young individual with a sense of purpose in his life. He gets a more individualized education because there is time for more one on one instruction. The teacher really has time to devote individualized time for my child educational and emotional needs. Will be attending a second year.

Pre K - 12 but older students well separated from little ones. Small class sizes (my child has 13 in her class, 5th grade). The bigger classes---which are still way below the norm in local public schools--have aides to assist. Dedicated music, PE and art instructors and (a rare find these days), a nurse on staff during school hours. Our children love Excel and do well academically. The administration is accessible as well as the rest of the staff. Scholarships are available. This school has grown a lot in the past few years, even having another school merge with them but the growth hasn't impacted the quality nor the sense of family. They have private donors working with them to better the school and have been very transparent about changes. Our family has had children in local public schools as well as Excel and there is no comparison.

Excel has changed our lives. We joined the Excel community in 2012 and It was the best decision my husband and I ever made! We not only have an amazing education for our children, but we have an extended family with Excel. My children are being challenged academically and spiritually fed through their experience at the school. All the values and beliefs we instill at home are being reinforced at Excel. The teachers and staff are loving and sincerely care about your kids! They are always available if you have questions or simply want to pop in!! You as a parent, are encouraged to get involved and I have always felt welcome! I never worry about my children, I know what they are learning, I know what their grades are, I am always informed as to their daily activities and what they are being taught. Never has my family been so blessed by a group of people and we are forever grateful to be an Excel Warrior Family! If you are a parent wondering what your next step should be... look no further. This is the school and 2nd home for your family that your heart is looking for!

This school is an awesome example of Christian love. My first grader comes home every day praising God, wanting to please Him, and being happy and secure in herself. The staff has gone above and beyond ro support me in times of need and students are encouraged to shine and make a difference in the community. They get so many opportunities that they would not have in other private or public schools. I love it!

Our child came home with good grades all year. That tells me my child is doing fine ached academically, right? Not even close. Grades are based on current aptitude, not actual grade level. That explanation was unacceptable. School leadership creates this type of environment and the teachers are hung out to dry. Our child no longer attends this school.

Academic expectations are very low. Christian atmosphere is also lacking. We had trouble with grades not being posted in a timely manner in my son's class. Teacher was kind and respectful, but unresponsive to our request..

This school has probably biggest enrollment fee in town. They say it is non-refundable but in some cases s they may give it back. We applied for this school and pay a fee. Same time we applied to other private school. Than something bad happened and I lost my job. First school refunded this money without any questions due to my consequences. But Excel Christian School was so greedy that they decided to keep this money as a gift. I wouldn't worry about that money ($400) if I would have a job. But in my situation it is pretty upsetting. Well, I guess someone will just pray and get over it?

Unfortunately I live next door to this school. The noise level is off the chart. Every morning the children are allowed to run wild and scream as loudly as they want. I've never heard a teacher ask them to quiet down. Each afternoon the teachers announce the parents arrival via BULL HORN EXTREMELY LOUDLY. I am a parent, I do not hate children, that being said, you would assume a Christian school would demand that the children behave in a decent manner.

This school is just fantastic. The teachers are so caring. The coaches are also. The vice principal Mr. Dahir is one of most wonderful people I have ever met in SO many ways. This school has been a blessing for my granddaughter. Public schools may be fine for many kids,but many will get lost in them. The teachers there can't possibly know all the kids that well. The best decision we ever made.

An amazing school. We moved our son from another Christian school to Excel in his 6th grade. He is now a sophomore and is thriving. They have helped him grow spiritually, academically, emotionally & physically. Even though he has been challenged by the secular world, his foundation is strong & unshaken due to the teachers, administration and staff. He has grown into his role of leadership & continues to advance everyday. Being the parent of a child that would say "I'm not going to college, I'll just work for dad", to having him come home one day & say "Mom, dad, I've found some colleges we need to check out!" Through health challenges, learning issues, etc., we have found a caring & nurturing environment that is willing to work with our child through anything that comes his way. At Excel, as parents, we realized that the teachers cared for our son as much as we do. This not a school that wants you to "drop off your kid, look at a report card, and then hope they do well" They encourage a regular involment with your student and others to truly create a Christian environment.

Strong Christian leadership with love and caring staff. My son has been going to Excel for over 4 years and Excel has proven to be exactly what they told us when we interviewed them to educate and care for my son. From the Principal to the staff, all of them work hard to make every student the best that they can be. I highly encourage anyone to check out Excel for their childs education and see that a true Christian school can and does exist in Sparks, NV.

If you are looking for a school that teaches CHRISTIAN principles to all students, look elsewhere. You will not find it here. Instead you will find judgement. The administration lies to get your money. Jesus turned away no one, yet this school will turn you away at the drop of a hat. They are only prepared to deal with "good" children. If Jesus did that, how many disciples would there be?

One of the best experiences in my son's life - shaped him into the person he is today.

It teaches the entire pupil. It promotes inquiry from every aspect, and cultivates the spiritual portion of the child. If youth could refrain from attending, I have found they would........in public schools. However, in private schools, pupils take responsibility for the school appearance, the total momentum to honor themselves by honoring that school and those fellow students, the condition, public perspective and the future of those who graduate there. This reveals their concern in that pupils WANT to attend. The school is successful and a tribute to the Christian community. I know as a former teacher, founder,and science chair, the school has produced scholars who have graduated from prestigious universities including Pepperdine, Concordia, BIOLA, Loyola, Rutgers, Liberty, and Wheaton. The school teaches how to think and employ the tools taught as well as a logical world view, sound apologetics, and research guidelines.These pupils pursue life with the intention of making a positive mark on society,honoring God by utilizing all their God-given talents to impact the future by leaving a legacy.
