I love this school! It has been such a blessing for our family and the teachers and principal are top notch. It was my understanding that they closed the middle school so that they could direct their resources more towards the elementary school where the majority of the students are. I'm just so thankful that we found this gem!
HVCS is an excellent school. It was a shame that they had to close their Middle School because of finances. That is one thing that this school seems to do is to have a lot of extra expenses on the parents for their K-Kids club and all the field trips they are now taking throughout the year. Times are hard for all of us. We are all struggleing and the many parties, field trips, and extras have taken their toll. I would be willing to give donations to help support a Middle School, that would be so worth while. The teachers are the best and they have a great thought out specials program, including Art, Music, P.E., and Spanish.
This school is a blessing. The nurturing and the caring of the teachers there surpass any other in this area. Their specials programs are excellent. They have a wonderful Spanish and Art program. My children's confidence and self esteem has soared. Thank You HVCS! I just wish they had a Middle School, so that my children can benefit the strong academic curriculum that HVCS offers.
Great school! Personable teachers, small classes, parent involvement. Really happy with our decision to go here!
I LOVE, LOVE HVCS!!!! My daughter has flourished and loves going to school. The Head of School is very hands on and involved and knows each child by name. HVCS has exceptional teachers that strive every day to provide the best Christian environment for the children in addition to an academically challenging curriculum. The kindness and helpfulness of the office staff is top notch. They have a variety of extracurricular activities to engage all interests, as well as activities to engage parents, such as circle time, chapel, family movie/reading nights, and spirit nights, etc. I cannot imagine my daughter going anywhere else! Thank you HVCS for all you do!
I love this school! My child's teachers are wonderful and she's learned so much and has matured so much in the past year. The school's principal is top notch also. I'm so thankful to have such a wonderful place for my children to attend!
After moving to CHattanooga last year, my kids were enrolled at HVCS. My son was entering 2nd grade and the last school had allowed him to fall behind, not to mention the poor study skills he had developed. The teachers at HVCS made it their personal goal to not only catch him up with his classmates, but to teach him a new way to enjoy learning. At the end of the year he received the "Most Improved Student" award and his self confidence was through the roof. I cannot say enough how much I love this school and everyone in it! We'll be back again for the 2011-2012 school year!!!
We just moved to Chattanooga and enrolled our two children at HVCS in fall 2010. I couldn't be happier with our choice. The principal is very involved and approachable; my kids give him a hug whenever they see him. The teachers are great and I'm thrilled at the extras like Spanish and computer skills starting in K4. Activities like family movie night in gym have helped us get to know the other kids and parents. Really this has turned out to feel more like a family than a school.
HVCS is great school with smalll classes, the best teachers and staff in Chattanooga, and high parental involvement.
Each child is given individulized instruction from wonderful teachers who truly love teaching. Small class sizes are a plus as well!
HVCS is the "best kept secret" in Chattanooga! Our son is in Middle School & loves going to school. How many Middle School kids can say that! The teaching staff at HVCS are truly dedicated to each individual child. The Middle School has challenging academics, great Spring trips to places like New York, Chicago & Washington D.C., and a terrific Spanish program.
HVCS is such a wonderful school. My child is getting an education second to none all in a safe happy environment. She is constantly being challanged in her academics. The teachers and staff make the school.
We have been at HVCS for 5 years. I can't imagine being anywhere else. From the individualized learning to the academic execellence, small teacher to student ratio, and focus on spiritual and personal growth; HVCS is such a unique asset to the Chattanooga community.
We are finishing up our first year at HVCS and have had a great experience! We looked at a lot of schools in the Chattanooga area, and I'm happy to say our decision to send our daughter to HVCS was right-on! The teachers work with her individually since she is advanced in one particular area, and she is gaining a wonderful Christian foundation as well. And most importantly at this young age, she loves school (and is loved there)! She went to our church preschool for two years, but this is the first time she's ever said that she likes school! I think it's noteworthy that in the recent reaccreditation note, SAIS/SACS commented that the HVCS teachers were 'some of the most dedicated and competent faculty this visiting team has ever had the pleasure to meet.' HVCS is a wonderful school with amazing, dedicated faculty and staff.
This school is simply amazing. The teachers are TOP NOTCH. This is our 2nd year at HVCS and we couldn't be happier. Our children have grown both spiritually and academically. This is a great environment for learning. I highly recommend it!
This is our first year at HVCS and we love it! The teachers are wonderful. I am so thankful we found this school. My kids WANT to go to school now. My daughters skills have more than doubled where she was at the beginning of the school year this year! We are only on the 4th week of school too. We are thrilled with HVCS.
We love HVCS. Our son feels safe to be himself as he learns new things. HVCS is a warm and inviting school.
This school was a godsend to my family. My child loves school now,and my wife and I owe this school a debt that can never be repaid. You just feel a great vibe walking in the school. Everybody smiling,and just glad to be there.
It is so special to find a school where your child can go and your feel totally at ease. This is a great school family! HVCS is the best!
