First, I would like to point out that the 1 Star reviews below are obviously all written by the same parent. They all say the same thing with the exact same wording. If vindictively leaving multiple negative reviews to try and pull down SCS's rating is the type of thing you would do, it is no wonder SCS was not the school for you. The school has very high standards for academics and behavior. Our family has been a part of the SCS community for four years, transferring in from public school. We have had nothing but a positive experience. The teachers are absolutely wonderful and truly care about my child. The atmosphere is Christ centered. The academics are challenging, and as a public school teacher, I can attest that what is being taught at SCS is at or above public school level. SCS is full if compassionate, caring teachers and students. SCS offers a variety of unique learning opportunities and experiences. I encourage anyone interested in SCS to request a tour of the school. One walk through the halls during the school day will convince anyone of how special this school is. It can truly be a positive life changing experience for your child.

We've experienced public, private, and charter schools in Meck and Iredell counties for over a decade -- hands down, Statesville Christian raises the bar for other area schools. Our son thrives with outstanding classes, international travel, and impressive and diverse art, science and sports programs. The new head of school is brilliantly insightful and the dedicated staff are world-experienced, nurturing and committed. What also sets this school apart, is a warm, caring family environment where compassion, integrity, values, faith and fun are embraced every day. The traffic-free commute from LKN is about 15 - 20 min. SCS is, overall, a superior choice to consider for your child's education.

My son attended Statesville Christian School 7 years and loved it. The teachers are great and the administrative staff were wonderful to work with. SCS provided an excellent Christian education and truly family atmoshere. Our son left to attend a military prep school. We will miss all the staff at SCS.

In response to the January 2, 2015 review: While you may have taken the time 7 months later to provide your dim perspective on Statesville Christian school, we pray for your reconciliation at some point. And, while you may have provided an anonymous review, I will not. I will be glad to discuss your historical issues with the school and ensure that we address any continuing challenges in the future to enable parents like you to have a better experience. Statesville Christian School has been a God send to our family and the majority of other parents I have sought out. I'm very sorry your personal experience left such an impression. Brandon Laws, SCS Board Chair - cell, 704-677-5015 Call me, glad to discuss moving forward. We want to be God honoring in all that we do, including reconciling any unresolved conflict. I look forward to hearing from you.

Statesville Christian School has been a tremendous partner in training my child to think, live, love and lead as a Christian. We have been apart of the SCS family for 13 years. Come and see for yourself what Statesville Christian School has to offer. You will not be disappointed. His Best, Wendy G. Thomas - a grateful SCS parent!

This was the worst school I could have ever put my money into. My child was bullied by teachers, administration and students. The academics is not up to par with any public schools in the area. Since switching my child to a public school he is behind in almost all of his classes. The high school is a toxic environment. The students with parents in administration positions think they can get away with anything they please. Just because this is a christian school does not mean there are not problems with drugs, sex and alcohol. The administration ignores this to try and keep parents out of the loop. The public school I chose for my son this year has less problems with bullying and drugs. If you are thinking about sending your child to a different school, think before you choose Statesville Christian.

I attended Statesville Christian from K-12 and I am now a college freshman just returning to school from fall break and felt I should write a review. I do not feel prepared for college, most of my peers have a lot of AP credits and had more choices for classes in HS so they already know their career path. SCS is so small I only had a limited choice of classes. I did benefit from the QRT and Winterim programs, which are unique to SCS. Also in a bigger school there would have been more students to find friends, whereas this school is so small it was hard to fit in. The school concentrates on the elementary and should put more into the HS, more teachers, more class choices, more activities. I felt a lot of the teachers were just there for a paycheck, but that is probably everywhere. Looking back I feel my parents should have saved their money and put it toward my college education. I was limited by funds as to where I could attend college.

I have a combined 41 years of children attending this school. While the school has never been perfect - good luck trying to find a perfect school- it is excellent and seems to be moving in a very positive direction. There are negative comments below by some, but I'm not one who feels like I should be in charge just because I pay tuition, who feels like my child should always be the exception to every rule, or who fails to require my kids to face their own consequences, so I have been very pleased with the school. The academics are rigorous (many children transferring from public school are about a year behind), and the teachers genuinely seem to care about the students' well-being... physical, intellectual, emotional, and physical. I have no regrets spending the money to have my kids in an academically excellent environment which is based on the Christian worldview.

School at SCS is awesome. We have some of the best teachers in the world, who truly care. Im never ashamed to live boldly for Christ at school. Many opportunities to get involved, build friends and have a blast everyday.

Wow!!! My child started back to school this week and its been awesome. From the Back-to-School Bonfire to the first couple days of classes he has been so excited. God's presence is certainly in the midst of the beginning of another great year. Our child has been attending for 11 years and the teachers don't just teach our child but show him the love of Christ daily. This impact has been even more evident in his last couple of years as I notice how his classmates are ministering to each other and sharing Christ externally.

My niece has been a student at Statesville Christian School, since K4. I have witnessed alot of wonderful things at that school. Never have I witnessed anything bad. The staff has always been friendly. The students seem to all be friends, with no clicks. I have been to programs, plays, and sporting events. I would send my kids there, if they lived in the area.

This used to be a really good school. It really is NOT any more. I would not advise sending your children here. The wrong people have been in charge and the school is seeing the adverse affects. To be fair they have hired a new Head of School for the upcoming school year and I just hope that he can turn things around. First of all just let me say that the people who have recently been in charge and pretty much run things is not how it should be. If you don't agree with everything the school does or teaches your child/children along with you as a parent will be black listed. The academics are not up to par with the local public schools. The kids are generally behind in math and science. They keep the kids on a different schedule of when they take classes than that of the public schools so if you do decide to move your child they will most likely be behind.

Everything has really gone down in the last 3 years. Wrong people have been put into leadership positions and they manipulate everything for their own agendas. Very backbiting tension among staff. Good teachers have left and enrollment has really gone down more teachers than students. Tuition has gone up to cover paying for all of the unnecessary staff. Need to hire competent staff. Athletics are poorly run. Favoritism shown for staff children and those that brown nose the administration. Your Child will get put on the black list if you question the administration or teachers.

The administration of this school has gone downhill. Teachers rank at average and the students try to override the place. My son has been abused by students and teachers alike. The administration does nothing to help and ignores our situation. The academics are average while sports are below. This use to be a great school, but now has become a very toxic environment for my child.

Average teachers, a lot do not have a teaching degree. Administration seems to think it is a privilege for our kids to go here rather than a privilege to teach our kids. I have to agree with comment on administration not having a clue. Athletic program is below average.

I love SCS! This was my first year here after transferring from public school and I feel like I'm getting a great education the well prepares me for college and SAT's. I have also grown tremendously in my walk of faith. SCS staff and students already feel like family to me!

The team of teachers is the strength of the school. All of them are highly qualified and genuinely invested in the lives of their students. There have been multiple leadership issues, and the school struggles to survive in the depressed economy. The high school faculty does prepare the students to thrive in college, both academically and spiritually.

I am a parent of a senior at SCS. We have been pleased with the prepatory academics for college. But most of all we have been so blessed by the atmosphere at this school especially last year and this current year. Our daughter has attended for 4 years. I have witnessed first hand the love of God and the commitment of the parents and volunteers here is unparalleled. This school is worth your time to visit if you are thinking of a solid education for your child with a strong Biblical worldview.

I really love my school. SCS is the best school ever! I have been going for almost 4 years now, and absolutely love it. The teachers are so nice and there is not as much bullying as in a public school. There are also reduced drama rates. BUt what is 7th grade without a little bit of girl drama? But i really love this school and definently give it 5 stars.

We moved our first child after one year at another school. We've now been at SCS for 4 years and couldn't be happier. Both of our children are receiving a great education in a wonderful, caring environment. SCS has the total package, great academics, a Godly environment, excellent athletic programs and coaches. Students going on mission trips for there bearks when other school trips head to the beach. We couldn't ask for more.
