I am a proud parent of a Calvary Student! I find the teachers very loving and dedicated to each student. When another private Christian school in the area closed its doors, Calvary did everything possible to expand their classes to accomodate any student that wanted to attend a good Christian school. This school teaches the students using the KJV version of the Bible. Knowing that my children are taught using good honest fundamental biblical emphasis makes me very proud and honored to have my children be a part of this school.

Calvary Baptist Church School has grown to almost 200 students and other things have changed. My son in the Kindergarten was just one student out of 24 others. They had one teacher teaching them and, I guess because of the small classroom and number of students the teacher seemed very frustrated with the children. At times she yelled at the students just not providing the loving atmosphere you would expect in a small Christian school. My son learned but the school needs to make some changes with its student teacher ratio and who they hire.

Because they really take pride in teaching the children not only the subjects they need to learn but they also teach how to be outstanding and productive citizens in the community. Their basketball team even won the state championship!

Im a graduate of Calvary and I loved it. I went there all twelve years. Yes, its small but I can honestly say that I would not have wished to be anywhere else.

Calvary Baptist is an excellent school ... I would highly recommend it to other parents seeking a Christian education for their children. The principal and staff are outstanding. The school has a very structured environment and is firm but fair about enforcing its rules. The students are very respectful of their parents and other adults, and are very well-mannered. Parents are always made to feel welcome at the school, and it is always a pleasure to visit.

I have been very pleased with the progress that my son has made and the skills that he has obtained in his first year of school. You could not ask for a better kindergarden teacher that the one at Calvary!

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.
