Victory Christian School did prepare our granddaughter for the "real" world. The school is small enough to give students an opportunity to participate in sports, drama and choir performances. A Biblical background is an integral part of a solid academic curriculum.
Honestly, if you want your kid to be aware of what the world is like and how to handle the world don't send them here. The staff is way to invasive in the children's lives. kids get in trouble for not obeying school "laws" if they do something outside of school and the staff sees it. Some of the staff go as far to accuse the students of not being Christians just because their grades aren't good. Also, between report cards the kids get a progress report where they get grades and the school rates their Christianity. Where does the Bible say to tell people what they are as a Christian on a scale of 1-7? Most of the staff (the ones in charge) push their personal beliefs on the kids by saying that if the kids don't believe what the staff does, then the kids aren't Christians and are wrong about God. Some students have been told to go to a certain college because the staff member told them it was God's will. If you don't care about that and just want to send your kid to a school with a good academic program I would still not send my kid here. The only worth while classes are math and English. Bible class is fantastic and the bible teacher is great (isn't like the rest of the staff.) but some of the teachers spread themselves too thin over the whole program, so they end up being useless in any of their jobs. Basically, the teachers they have and the lack of money isn't enough to make a successful and worth while program.
Victory Christian School has changed my whole family! It has been the best change since excepting Christ. My three children attend and they are growing in their relationships with the Lord daily. The academics are way above the public school system. My children had to catch up with the other students when they first arrived. The small class size has given my children almost one on one attention. The staff is very dedicated to their students learning and spiritual growth. I recommend VCS to every family!
I spoke with an administrator there about enrolling my child and the pretentiousness in which I was treated with was appalling, considering the complete ineptness of the staff and teachers. I guess this school uses the high society approach to attracting new prospects without adding any value whatsoever. I was smart enough to see through their scam, so my child will be attending a higher quality institution that actually offers real education.
Honestly I received a wonderful education here. I also had a few outstanding teachers. As long as you fit into a certain "look" you won't have a problem, otherwise I find other staff there very hypocritical and judgemental. Speaking in part due to past run ins with staff.
We were involved in this school for five years at the high school level. The facilities aren't great, and because the school is so small, there have been years when no sports were available to the high school boys. But overall, I would have to say that this is the best Christian school in the city. Christ is truly the foundation here, and academically, the school is quite strong. The faculty does a good job of trying to create a well-rounded education for the students, and the tuition costs are very reasonable.
