Most teachers are very good. All classrooms from K-12 are in one small hallway. High schoolers are more mature and despite being a "Christian School", some can say and do things that may be inappropriate for elementary aged students to see and hear. On the other hand, it can be very positive for elementary aged students and middle school and high school students without disciplinary problems to interact. Security is fairly lax, on more than a few occasions I had to wander down the hallway past all the classrooms looking for assistance during school hours. Discipline tends to be inconsistent. One year ago, over 10% of student body was either expelled or suspended.) High school has limited course selection, parents must supplement with other homeschool classes/co-ops, or dual enrollment in the local community college. It is essentially a very expensive homeschool cooperative. The school is not full time nor accredited which can be an issue for students (especially high school) requiring scholarships that either do not have a high GPA or do not test well on standardized tests. School calendar tends to shift around so it is difficult to plan family events. Inconsistent communication
I am very pleased with this school. The teachers are very caring and my children (1st and 3rd grade) are challenged and nurtured. It is a great feeling when I can leave the school knowing my children are in the best hands.
