My children were fortunate to go to SMCS when it had a middle school. So they had the benefit of learning in this amazingly rich faith-based, academically challenging school through 8th grade! They continued on to excell in a much larger private high school, academically, socially & spiritually. They have made friends for a life time. We will forever be indebted to the staff & Bd of SMCS for partnering with us to raise well-rounded children with a strong, personal faith in Jesus Christ as their Lord & Savior. What a blessing this school is to the Chattanooga community!

I have been thrilled with the experience my daughter has had at Signal Mountain Christian School. The focus on Christ-centered education is exactly what she has needed in light of the turmoil in the world around us. The smaller class rooms give her the one on one attention that has helped her thrive both academically and socially. I am so thankful that such a wonderful, Christian, family-focused school exists on Signal Mountain!

I am extremely satisfied with Signal Mountain Christain School. The teachers are excellent. The small class sizes are ideal for a closeknit sense of community while allowing the teacher to focus on individual needs and aptitudes. The shorter school days allow more time for us to have family time. This is done in the context of an authentic and caring Christian world view.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

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.
