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 is my kids 2nd year at the new location, we love this school, it's a blessing to know that the word of God is present and the staff is wonderful, my kids love it here and thrive.
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.
