The recent issues with drugs are disconcerting. On top of our frustrations with a culture that encourages students to withhold things from their parents and encourages parents to just trust them with their kids, this is the last straw. If you have any questions, you are viewed as a meddling parent. The MS Bible teacher teaches one thing and does another. He is immature and needs mentoring. One English teacher discusses her disappointment in her marriage with students. Where is the discretion?
Some teachers swear in class, my coach trashes our parents to the whole team, a lot of students talk about doing drugs and having sex, teachers have told us to not got to our parents about stuff, and I was mocked by a girl in front of other students who just laughed at me for not having sex yet. It is NOT Christian! It is okay academically here though. We just had kids busted for drugs with K-9 dogs and everything. Crazy!
It just depends on the teacher. A lot of them do okay but some are terrible and some are good. They just need to know what the students know and they would be able to have more stronger teachers by getting rid of some.
I have 2 children at CCS. We have been CCS parents for 7 years. There hasn't been one moment when I have second guessed our school choice. The feeling of family and comadrie helps the children feel supported and guided through the difficult academic standards. Every one of my children's teachers are open and available. I could not recommend CCS more highly.
What a great school to send your child for a wonderful academic education, as well as social, emotional, spiritual, and athletic learning/training! We are truly blessed by the experience our 3 children have at Charlotte Christian School. The teachers are fabulous, loving & nurturing. The staff are very instrumental in assuring our children succeed, with necessary encouragement to perservere. We could not be happier at this institution.
My child had never enjoyed school, ever. He attended a summer camp program at Charlotte Christian and was so welcomed and encouraged by his experience that he asked, no begged, to be allowed to transfer to this school. We were skeptical until we went thru the admissions process and met the staff. It wasn't long before we realized what a truly awesome place this is. The kindness, respect and welcome families and their students recieve at CCS is the way all Christians should behave, what a shining example they are to everyone! After 4 years there I still feel the same way. LOVE LOVE LOVE the spirit of CCS!
we were treated very poorly by the admissions department at this school we were moving to charlotte and were assured by the admissions department that our child had a spot at this school. i even asked admissions should we be pursuing other schools just in case our child is not accepted they said absolutely not. once we moved here they turned us away. this was devastating to us because we did not want our child in public school. we had to scramble to find another private school for our child. i would never want another family to go through this experience. this happend during the schoool year the admissions departmenttold us we were lucky to get this news by phone and not by letter.
