School Official Point of View

Posted August 29, 2012

As a ministry of Bible Baptist Church, we desire to fulfill the commission of our Lord to teach His disciples the commandments of God (Matthew 28:19-20). BBCS agrees to assist Christian parents in meeting their biblical responsibility to train their children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. (Ephesians 6:4). As an extension of the local church and the Christian home, our school assists parents in giving each student a thorough Christian education as each subject is taught within the parameters and principles of the Word of God.

Our family has been blessed to be a part of the BBCS family for quite a few years. Our eldest (we have three) is now a senior, he has attended since K5. Every year is a testimony and we witness His faithfulness. It is just wonderful to have our kids in a safe and nurturing environment that challenges them to excel academically, educationally and spiritually. BBCS is an abundant blessing and we are so very grateful. To God be the glory!

I like their preschool program and my son enjoyed it even more. The teachers are very friendly and caring...the way Christians are suppose to be.

I had a child attend K-4 here. As a intro to preschool it was ok. Class size was small. Lots of crafts. Nice gym. 1 teacher left & another was brought in that was new to teaching preschool. I wasn't pleased with that at all. Playground is ok. Large sandbox but no access to swings (they are outside of the fenced area!) The thing that did us in was the discipline culture here. All the while, I'm telling my child to 'tell the teacher' if he has a problem as that is what they are there to do (especially at THIS age) is to help the kids learn how to work things out. My child stopped telling the teacher when things happened to him. When I asked why, he said 'because they'll just tell you don't tattle!' No thanks! We've moved on to a better school where they help the kids.

the dress code at this school is ABSOLUTELY RIDICULOUS!! and the school can have no consideration for what the student has to say but their education is extreemly chalenging but you will come out of the school prepared for college.

The school gives the student a good education, but little consideration for the student's viewpoint. The dress code does not make any sense.

My child has attended the K-4 preschool at BBCS. This school is above average. BUT, the K-3's & K-4's have 3 different teachers during the day (this was not disclosed in the initial interview). The lunch menu is very low on variety and quality. Enrichment activities are a bit rare. There are class and school newsletters. People seem to love the K-12 part of the school but that doesn't seem to be based on the academics of the school, but more on the religous environment. There is PTA involvement.

It is an awesome school. The teachers are very loving. It is a place your kids will have fun and love. Your kids are very safe there. I have sent my kids there since they were 5. 1 kid graduated from there. It is a great school. Wend your kids there.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
