The doctrinal beliefs are spot on, but the rules are the product of a deeper problem. I want my teenagers to be free to be who Christ wants them to be... loved children of God, who are nurtured to be themselves as they grow in Christ. This school promotes a conforming to a system/leaders to be right with God. This school is ran by an Independent Fundamental Baptist Church that preaches many trappings, appearance keeping, isolation from those who aren't the same as this group, and little accountability of the leadership. I decided my teenagers won't be going back to this school. Love so many good people here, but I can't agree with their methods/training any longer. #DelightInBeingGod'sChild #He'sNotAshamedOfYou

South Haven Christian School has been a great experience for our family. The staff and teachers go out of their way to make you feel like part of their own family. The education is also first class. As someone who comes from a public school background and also works in public education, I can tell you that their academics far exceed that of the public school system in the area. If you are looking into placing your kids here, you will not be disappointed.

As a parent of a graduate of SHCS and also one who is still in SHCS, I thank God for this school! My first child went on to college and is doing very well in life. My second child is thriving as well. I'm grateful for the administration and teachers. They are all certified, qualified, love the Lord, and care deeply for each student that they teach. Yes, they have rules and I am extremely thankful for each one. The boundaries (rules) are in place to help children feel safe and secure. If I had more children, they would be in this school as well!

I grew up at SHCS. I was involved in everything that went on and am very thankful for the opportunity to have attended a Christian school. Had I gone to a public school my life would have been very different. They do have rules and guidelines, but so does every school, public or private. Rules are there to protect and edify the students. The teachers are qualified and they have added other qualified teachers to insure a first class education experience. I felt very prepared for college when I graduated. I love SHCS, Dr. Blaser, the staff and students. They were and still are like a family to me. It is not a perfect place, and if that is what you are looking for then you will be disappointed everywhere you go. SHCS is a great environment for quality education with a Biblical worldview!

My child was not happy here. Lots of rules about everything. We switched her to a different school and she is doing much better.

Great difference from bringing my child from pubic school to SHCS. Very well educated and taught honor as a person. Bible class is fantastic though I don t believe all classes should be taught based on the Bible, ie: Biology, Science. My child has a future in science/medical and classes should be taught with science in mind and not Biblical history.

I am a very over-protective parent! After having my first child, I of course had to return to work. I had heard so many horror stories about caregivers neglecting or harming children and I was scared to death to place my precious daughter in a "strangers hands". A co-worker recommended South Haven to me. I called, and spoke to Miss Angi. She answered my initial questions and invited me to take a tour of the infant room. I met Sharon, Joan and Margaret and what a blessing they were to me! Leaving my child with them was like taking her to "grandma's house"! The first day, I cried, Miss Angi was right there with me and she asked me to call her on my lunch break and I did. She had already checked on my child and assured me she was doing well. I only called her everyday for the first month! She was always kind and returned my call promptly to let me know how my child was doing. Since then, I have had two more! And thankfully all have attended South Haven Daycare and Preschool! I'm just sorry my youngest is in K4! If you have a child and are looking for a daycare or preschool, I would recommend South Haven! Their staff is very loving and caring. They are family!

This is a great school to send your child to. This is my childs 1st year at South Haven, she has been going to a public school for the last 4 years and this was the best move that we made by moving her to South Haven. The teachers and administration are great. They love what they do and they love the children. They teach the basics and beyond, which is what every child needs. They teach it to them so that they understand. My child has gone from very low grades in a public school to much higher ones here. My child loves school and gets up everyday wanting to go to school. What a difference. Thank you South Haven for everything you have done and continue doing.

SHCS is a great school to send your child to. The teachers are great, and even though they are young, they seem like they have great experience. They are like friends. you can talk to them about basically anything. The principal is awesome too. He is very dedicated to the school. He has a quote' YOU GET OUT WHAT YOU PUT IN'. And the students are very friendly too. But the most important thing is that your child can learn about The Bible at such a young age. Lots of students and people have got saved there, and if you want your child to learn about The Bible this is an awesome place. What else can I say!! You'd have to see for yourself. I REALLY RECOMMEND THE SCHOOL.

I think that SHCS is a great place to send your child. The teachers are great, even though they are young, the principal is okay. He is srict but thats what we all need. He is fair and reasonable. You learn everything that you need to learn but even more. We have Bible classes and we learn all about the Bible. The extracurricular activities aern't what they could be. I think that we could have more for the young ladies and not everything just for the young men. South Haven is a great place and I recommend it.

I think South Haven is a great school. It has a new facility and is kept very nice. The principal is very good. He really cares and is dedicated to the success of the students and the school. He says what he means and means what he says. The teacher are okay. They are young and seem a little inexperenced. They are kind and encouraging but lack a certain spark that would make them better than average. However, they do care and are willing to cooperate, listen and help the students and parents. Maybe that in its self makes them better than average!?!
