This is a great faith based school. My child has a good background on religious stides. Her math and reading levels are above her grade as well as her test scores. Unfortunately the music and gym programs are not fully developed. Tuition is reasonable and there are excellent parent administration relationships.

This school excels in education. I think is lacking in the activity area. Gym, Art & Music are things not offered in which I feel children needs to be well rounded.

This school is the best school I have come in contact with. The children are well mannered and are very intelligent. My child is 3 years old and is already writing words and beginning to read. They are taught how to pray and memorize scripture as well. My daughter is only 3 years old going on 4 years old but is given homework every night and is assigned 4 books a week to take home for her and I to read together. The school is phenominal. I recommend this school for anyone who wants their child to have a christian core and to excel academically. All meals are provided in the tuition as well.

I enrolled my daughter in kindergarten last year at Christian Stronghold and was quite impressed with what she learned.I would have never guessed that when she completed the school year, she would be on the second grade level for all subjects!The school focuses on achievement and excellence and of course all things are Christ- centered.My daughter will continue to attend until she graduates from sixth grade. Tuition for the acadwmy is, I believe very reasonable!

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.
