The school wants the kids to know the Lord 1st! Then they find teachers to help the students be prepared for the future. The environment there works to be a family to let Staff and students know they are cared for.
I know the Staff works hard to stop bulling, but I also know kids are kids and they seem to find a way to express their feeling. I do agree the Staff when approached with the issue...they do work with the students first and parents next to work out the issue.
I agree with this because of the way they show how EACH student is important. There was a student who wanted to be a future swimmer, and we did not have that program. But the school board looked for a school that would take our swimmer in to their group. I talked to her when the season was over and she was happy to have had the chance to compete. When there is a learning disability, the Staff looks for a way to help the student even if it means the student would have to stay late after school to be tutored.
When I first went to the school, the Staff there let me know that my children were important to them and they would do what they could to help them be ready for the future. For example...When my son was in the 10th grade a new program was being introduced to any High school to compete with college students in Science class. My son with a friend showed they were as good as college students, and were rewarded for it. Because VCS and parents, together help these boys be confident in what they did in this event. They felt confident to face the future.
The School Leaders take time to be with the students at rest time, sports time, teaching times to know their students. The Staff wants the students to how to live and take care of others as they want to be treated.
Victory Christian School is a great place for your child to learn. It is a K-12 school that cares about each and every one of its students. The student to teacher ratio is very small which allows for students to get extra help when needed. It offers a positive Christian environment which will last with your student forever.
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.
