We have 2 kids there, 3rd grade and kindergarten. It is a wonderful environment where our children have enjoyed learning. The teachers are compassionate and are excellent Christian role models. We feel that the kids are safe there in the loving environment. There are opportunities for them to excel in reading with the AR program and programs such as math olympics, spelling bee and speech meet have helped stretched them. The dress code is strict, which we like. Have had no problems with bullying, which is not tolerated there. Glad also that it goes through high school. Highly recommend especially when the children are young and impressionable!

We pulled our child after attending CCS for three years. Our child was taught through worksheets and very little actual teaching. The admin actually stuck up for their teacher after we complained about unprofessional behaviors and emails. Our child attended a different school this year and needed special attention to items that were never even covered at this school. Very disappointed regarding the academics and staff.

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this school! It has everything my high schoolers could ask for with a secure, "family" feel . The teachers really know their students and take time to help them grow academically, socially and spiritually. The fine arts department is rapidly growing along with the sports program. We are very happy here.

Very upset with this school. Took my daughter out because she has been verbally bullied by her peers for years. No support from administration. I expect more from a Christian school

We had our children at CCS earlier this Fall, and experienced a loving staff and families enrolled along with us. However, as the months went by we realized that our 11 year old and 8 year old had almost no homework they had HWK 2 nights per week, occasionally)! Our children were very uncomfortable with the lack of structure in their classrooms, everything was "too free". Not only that, but also the focus seemed to be on prayer and missions in the classes- with very little instruction on academics, if any. This is a wonderful school, socially and morally, but if you want your child to be prepared for High School and college, I advise you to tread lightly!

My daughter is a 3rd grader at Carmel. She has been at 3 different christian based privates schools over the past few years. We have finally found the perfect school for her. We absolutely love Carmel!!! The teachers, principal, and staff are awesome. The facility is beautiful. The afterschool offers lots of extracurricular activities as well as community service events for the kids. The curriculum is challenging which is exactly what we want for our children. The tuition is extremely reasonable for such a wonderful school. We feel blessed to have discovered this school. We are thrilled with the addition of the high school and plan to stay at Carmel for her entire school years.

If you are looking for a solid Christian education with great academics this is it. An added bonus is the low tuition (much lower than many of the private schools here). My child loves going to school. He received a solid foundation for reading in K. He is nurtured but disciplined as needed. You can feel the joy the staff has in educating the children. Parents are very involved.
