We absolutely love West Hills! Our children have been blessed to have loving, caring and innovative teachers to guide them. We would recommend West Hills to any family looking for a first rate education in the context of a safe and caring environment.

West Hills Christian School is amazing! We have 2 kids at West Hills that made the switch from another christian school and we could not be happier. It is like a family and everyone was so welcoming. WHCS is academically challenging, the teachers & staff are wonderful and there are so many extra curricular activities to choose from. We feel so blessed that our kids have the privilege of attending WHCS - we wouldn't want them anywhere else! After having compared several other christian schools in the area, West Hills tops them all!

We have been a part of the West Hills Christian family for the past 11 years. The school has provided a strong foundation in academics, athletics, and Christian character. All 3 of our children have been nurtured by caring and loving teachers. The school has very strong parental involvement and outstanding staff.

We have been at this to school for 8 years and it has been such a wonderful environment for the children to learn not only scholastics but have faith based education. It is an amazing experience to have your child have a rough day and come home and tell you that their teacher prayed with them. :)

Last year was our first year at WHCS. Our children were embraced by everyone on staff! The Christian values taught to the children are apparent in their respect and regard for each other and as seen reflected by the wonderful teachers and staff. The academics are superior and with bars set high for learning, children meet and exceed as evidenced by the SAT scores. The state-of-the-art science lab has been an exciting place to do actual hands on learning in additon to book studies and what a blessing it is to have George Fox University be a part of enhancing the science experience. Last but not least, our principal is truly dedicated to the spiritual and intellectual development of all the children. There is no stone left unturned in maximizing the blessings for each and every student in their academic experience with West Hills Christian School.

This school not only help shape my husband and his sister, but my daughter has grown up with a great education and wonderful values. The teachers and staff help them become better people and allow them to just be kids as well. I love the guidance and friendships that this family has brought to our family. -Malissa

This is a highly Academic School with much to offer the students. The new classroom and Gym addition is almost complete and it will allow the school to continue to grow for many years to come. The Spiritual training is superior and taught in a way that all can understand. The teachers live what they teach and truely love the children. The school is self governed by an elected board of parents, who work along side the teachers and administration. What a great place to learn, be loved, and accepted by the people around you on a daily basis. The only down side I see is that the every after school activies is offered at a fee, but with that price you get a quality activity. Check it out and you too will be excited to be apart of the West Hills Family. It is a first class Education! WHCS Parent-Sandy

I had the privilege of attending WHCS, as well as having two children currently enrolled at WHCS. WHCS is a very special place - outstanding teachers who view their employment as a ministry, and parents that foster a truly unique sense of community. The education is first rate - there is no other school we would consider sending our children to, regardless of cost. We are so thankful that the staff at WHCS is fully committed to assisting us as parents raise up our children to love and honor the Lord in all areas of their lives. WHCS is a huge blessing!

All three children attended WHCS. One in college now (and plans to send HER children to WHCS), one in high school and youngest in 8th grade. All LOVE WHCS. Very positive place to learn, and grow to love the Savior and others. Excellent leadership in all areas. The best teachers and staff!

What a great school! We've been had children in the school for three years and could not be happier. Academically, our kids are well ahead of their friends in the neighborhood and their spiritual growth is unbelievable. If you are looking to looking to give your children a strong academic and spiritual foundation to move forward in life, WHCS is the place for you......Tuition is also very reasonable

This is a wonderful school. I have only one child that goes to this school but, I wish that my other two children would have gone here. This school has not only great curriculum, but also showing my child the light to God. The many trips that this school takes are incredible. No matter what the cost or trip no child will be left behind. Just as Jesus had testified. 'No one left behind.' Thank you West Hills Christian School for leading my child into the Light of Christ. Sincerely, A Very Appreciative Parent

Our family moved from out of state and our children both attend WHCS. We received a warm welcome and found the teachers, faculty and staff to be very helpful and true professionals. The attention paid to detail and the individual attention our children receive here is like no other! The curriculum is strong and the teachers are very qualified! We would highly recommend WHCS.

I'm a parent. 1 child has graduated from here -more than prepared for High School. 2 more attend now. Incredible school. Gifted and caring staff. Strong education w/Biblical values taught and modeled. Thorough emphasis on basics (3 Rs) plus options galore - chess, music, band, sports year round. Creative teaching - wax museum, patrioic day, Oregon trips, Wash DC, etc. But every child counts. No child left behind due to programs. A terrific place. Wish I could have gone here as a kid.

This is a wonderful school. It teaches its students to be both intellectual and morally stable! The highlight of this school is its wonderful science program. It has a fully equipped lab and encourages students to learn in a creation based environment.
