My children started ICS in junior high,The academics were harder than what they were used too but their teacher and staff have done everything to help them succeed. In public school my daughter was bullied and had few friends, at ICS everyone is loving and caring to her. You feel like family and that your opinion matters at this school. The kids are not lost in the shuffle like public school. They are not just a number but are treated fairly and are given the gift of learning about God. I would recommend this school to anyone who wants their children to be known by all staff, teachers and students. The tuition is reasonable compared to another local private school and the fundraising is not that bothersome. My children and I love ICS

Great school. My son went K-3 but the school is K-12, teachers are wonderful. We are moving away and we have no choice but to move our child to another school. Small class size meant my child receiving special attention to resolve some learning and behavioral issues. The principal is excellent and he personally helped my child. I am a non believer and my wife is catholic, my son is being raised catholic, and his beliefs were respected. Expect a very strong emphasis in religious education, a couple of fundraisers a year, and being asked to volunteer, but if you don't is not a problem. School feels like family. There is a degree of diversity, although it does not reflect the town's population yet. Unlike other places in town, we never felt different although we are a minority. We felt welcome. I am in favor of uniforms and the dress code is balanced. Go to ICS if you are looking for individual attention, academic excelence, teaching of values (specially christian values) and an affordable private education. They will do everything they can to help your child succeed.

I love everything about this school..The teachers are second to none. They love the children and love their ministry(teaching). Each child has the benefit of not only receiving a great education, but also is shown and taught the love of Christ. I'm sure my son would be quite different if I did not send him to Immanuel Christian School.

An amazing demonstration of God's love is found here. High academic standards, but not at the neglect of character training. Teachers are professional and loving, opportunities for extra curricular activities such as choir, drama, basketball, track. A real blessing.

My son attended ICS for two years and then went to another school for one year, and I can tell the quality education he received at ICS is by far uncompared especially with the care and compassion from the teachers and administrators!

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.
