This school has been a godsend to us! Our son was struggling academically in the public school system and was falling through the cracks. RCLS has not only turned his academic track record around but he is a much happier child now. This school is nurturing and really stresses the importance of being kind to one another. This school was able to meet our child where he was at, academically, and move him forward from there, something most private schools are unable or unwilling to do. I highly recommend this school to anyone who is looking for a loving, caring and academically superior school environment for their child.

This school has been a nurturing school for my children. The teaching staff truly care and work hard to meet the needs of each student. The principal listens to parent concerns and works to provide a cooperative learning community which involves all parties. Academics are important but there is a growing fine arts program which is important in this day and age of cutting programs in public schools. Their accreditation shows concern for academic standards. All around this has been a great school for our family.

What a great school! Every child matters! Every parent matters! Christ is the center of the school operation. Great teaching staff w/ low student teacher ratios. Rich academic environment with after school activities available. National accreditation held by this school confirms my experience.

Risen Christ as been a great place to put my children. The level of academic excellence is high. The teachers truly care about the success of their students. My daughters both enjoy the low teacher to student ratio and the acceptance they found at the school by the other children when they first came. The school tries to meet extra curricular interests by offering after school activities at little or no charge. The school is accredited and that makes me feel good to know that they have academic standards. Altogether Risen Christ has been a great choice for our family.

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.
