My boys attend this school and they are thriving both spiritually and academically. I would not consider another school. Teachers trully care about your child. HPPA has created a great enviroment for our children. We thank God for this wonderful school!

This is a good school academically. My child strived here. However, it lacks in diversity. If you don't believe me, schedule a tour of the school sometime (during school session) and see for yourself. Many blessing on a choice of a school for your kids.

This will be my son's 3rd year at HPPA. He loves it and thinks it is the best school ever. I believe the way he feels about the school says a lot, and it helps me to feel confident in him attending. He started HPPA in 3rd grade, and we both look forward to him staying on until he graduates. This school is not perfect, but I know the staff centers on teaching our children God's word while educating them. In addition, the faculty is very caring. HPPA has a challenging academic program, and my son does not get bored. He is striving academically!

This school is a joke. Bullying is a huge issue. The elementary part of High Point is great but junior high and high school is something I wouldn't recommended. I personally have witnessed bullying and seen nothing done about it. Do not waste your money or time putting you're child in an environment such as this.

My child will be graduating this year and has attended High Point Prep. for 9 yrs. Though many changes have occurred, it has been to make the school better. I know the teachers and staff really care about my child. They spend time in the mornings seeking God's guidance for the training of my child, during their morning devotions. For that I am truly thankful. After graduation this school will always be an important part of the things that made a difference and molded her life.

My son has been going to High Point Prep for two years and to be open with you they saved my son's education. He went to public school all the way up until the second grade and then we made the decision to try High Point. The main difference I said was teachers that REALLY wanting to see students be successful and going the extra mile. I don't plan on leaving the private school setting, it's been a blessing!

My son has been attending High Point Preparatory Academy since Kindergarten. He is now in 6 th Grade. The school is like family to him. He has grown so much over the years thanks to the caring teachers, Headmaster, and the wonderful staff. As a parent, this was apparent on the support we got from the school staff when my son had surgery during last school year. The outpouring support and love from the staff and his classmates were amazing. He loves the school and looking forward to learn every day.

I have been associated with HPPA for several years and with Christian schools for many years. There is no perfect school; every school has it pluses and minuses. Due to unfortunate circumstances, HPPA has had its challenges, just like any other school. With our new leadership in place, our school is ready to move forward to provide an excellent product for our students and parents. The past is the past; let's look to the future!

When reviewing a school the whole picture is what is important. High Point is staffed by teachers who care about the students academic performance and relationship with God. It's athletics program is competitive in all sports (Football state FTW). Its academics are reviewed frequently and improved where needed to insure a quality education that challenges and prepares the students for their calling in life. Small class sizes offer better communciation and guidance from teachers who LOVE (I'm gonna say it again-LOVE - all caps!!) the students. Its new headmaster is been in education leadership for decades (in other words he knows what he is doing) When selecting a school please bring it to the Lord and pray for the right school. Call the school. Tour it. Meet the teachers. Please do not let the one star reviews below be the deciding factor. Maybe someone had a concern and maybe it was with somone who isn't even there anymore. Maybe it was legitimate, but cmon. With all the positive at the school did it in anyway warrant giving a one star review? With all do respect no it did not. I wrote all this because of how much I LOVE (Dude I love that word!) this school and its students.

The school is in the position that it is in because of the control that the church has over it. The school is financing the church!!! Parents just know that any money that you pay out to High Point Prep is not actually being allocated for what you are allocating it for. Afterall, has the church or the school ever had a business meeting to show what the finances are going towards? ijs! It does not matter who is the the front office, who in the classroom or who has the title of Headmaster, as long as the church has full control over the finances, students will probably go without more than books in the next year or so.

The headmaster isa joke. Very unprofessional, quit many times. She is not qualifies to do her job and definitely does not have the education to back it. Students go weeks without books. High admin/teacher turnover rate. I would save my money and send my child to a prestigious school.

My daughter is in one of the Kindergarten classes and I could not be happier with the class size, teacher and how she has progressed this year. She is reading at an advanced first grade level (which can be attributed to the teacher and my husband and I helping her read nightly), she can do simple mathematics (addition and subtraction), and her self-confidence has increased. My husbands and my goal is to keep her in this school as long as financially possible. Administrators do not make or break a school, it is the dedicated teachers that influence the children and the learning environment.

To take a one year teacher with a business degree and make her a principal who later becomes the head master over the school is a joke. What's even more of a joke is for her to sit in a classroom and critique a 30 year veteran teacher. If you are looking for a school that is incompetently run and misleads families constantly, then this is your school. If you want a school that actually functions like a school and has qualified administration, keep looking.

When considering a good school, ask lots of questions, ask to see the evidence of what is said about the school by school officials, ask for financial reports, evidence of open communication, ask to speak with teachers about their experiences with administration, ask how the school complies with accreditation standards, ask for a copy of the standards and evidence that supports it. Ask how the school stays accountable to parents and others. Ask to see reports about the percentage of students passing accountability measures. Ask to see evidence that they meet the instructional needs of diverse learners and that instruction is active and not passive. Seek a school that promotes open inquiry among students and not a military style of leadership. Seek a school that appreciates diverse learning styles. Most of all ask about being able to visit the classrooms as a guest visitor. You have a right to seek a great school and to see independent evidence. (cont.)

(cont). The school may have certified teachers but does the school leadership have Principal Certification or School Administrator Certification? You wouldn't expect a foot doctor to operate on the brain or vice versa. So don't expect someone with manager's experience in the corporate world to know how to be a school administrator. The knowledge base is not the same. To be a certified school administrator you have to have pedagogical knowledge and an understanding of best instructional practices along with a host of other specialized knowledge. Being a manager in a corporation is NOT the same thing as being a school principal or administrator in a school. If you expect to pay big money for a school that has certified teachers, then you certainly should expect the leader of the school to be a certified principal. If not then this individual should be getting certified as a school administrator.

HPPA is a great school with room to grow!! I have read the reviews and most of them seem pretty harsh. The class sizes are small, this will definitely benefit the student's learning!!

I never thought I would ever write a negative review. My son went to HPPA for over 5 years and I loved it and he received a great education until the last 2 yrs. Teachers didn't seem to care enough to "teach" the material just give it to them. My son walks with the Lord and always will and I have HPPA to thank for that. He had a good basis under older administration. Recently, the kids expressed a negative feeling within the school between the students and teachers. For a school commissioning Christ-like leaders, they themselves lack that teaching in their compassion and values. All they do is quote scriptures to you and think it is ok. Think twice about this school. I paid tuition last yr for my son to clean a classroom during his study hall. Really!!! They lack communication!!

The deep division in this school is evident through the many posts of previous months. Matthew 12:25 A house divided against itself cannot stand.

I am deeply saddened by the all out attack on parents that have voiced their concern. I would never have imagined such a deep divide among families, teachers or administration a year ago. That, by itself, is testament to me of the shift that has taken place at this school. If the families, or more likely administration, left behind, are those generalizing all departing families as "hellraisers", then I'm glad we won't be there. They are clearly out of touch with reality and more importantly, God. I agree, there needs to be a weeding out, but its not the families that need to go. Take a good, long, HONEST, look at yourselves HPPA administration. I know honestly may be a bit foreign to you, but it's still achievable with God's help.

It is very interesting that the only 5 star reviews are written by "parents" that show only judgement, condescension, and a complete void of agape love. "Hellraisers", are you serious? How Christ-like are these judgemental generalizations that the staff and students that are leaving are just being weeded out? Remember that a tree is known by its fruit, and parents are sharing their epiphanies of the rotting HPPA. I pray that humility and love fill that school again, but until then that school will continue to disolve.

There it is again, blame the parents, blame the students, now blame the teachers? Really? A weeding out? Of almost everyone? How many students are left in the highschool, 20 at most, if that many? How many teachers? Ah...... 1 or 2? Coaches, zero. So all the students, all the teachers, coaches, and some of the admin and clerical, all gone, but it is not the current principles issues, or the judgemental attitudes. Of course not, and pigs can really fly. Keep excluding other Christians, and YES, I do mean Christians, and you will weed yourself out of a school and Church. You can stand back and pretend this many famiies left because we are all just evil, or you can re-evaluate, ask for honest reason and then try to put back together what was once a great school.

HPPA is gowing through a weeding process right now. Most of these parents have only attended 1 private school boy are they in for a suprise! All of them have some issue. Parents get upset when they have allowed ao much compramise in there home that they need to find others to blame. Is HPPA perfect? No. I see parents drop off there children every day and never step foot in the school other than special occasions, then they are upset because their child is in trouble and the staff takes care of the sitituation. Some parents, teachers and students are not happy unless they are stirring up some kinda gossip! I do agree that you should pray if your child belongs there or not. If you are truly the Godly parent in tune with the Holy Spirit He will direct you.

It amazes me that some parents pretend to know every referenced "situation" and how the said quoted scripture pertains to it. I did not quote scripture, but I'm confident only God knows my heart and that of other parents. I'm sure that many posters did not bad mouth HPPA and don't have delinquent, un-Godly children. We are families that have seen a shift in the heart of the school...one we don't consider for the better. I am not apologetic for sharing the truth about "my" experience. I am sorry if it offends parents that did not have the same experience, but your experience does not negate mine. I do want perspective families to make informed and prayerful decisions. I believe the Holy Spirit will help them make the right decision and will be the determining factor as to which school they choose. No post will trump the Holy Spirit.

As a parent, I feel I received poor customer service for such a high rate of tuition. My A honor roll student has been humiliated & yelled at by the principal on more than one occassion. It is w/ deep regret that I prayerfully pulled my high school student, as this has been not only our school for several years, but also our church home. The passive-aggressive leadership style is not only condescending but demoralizing to the young ppl there. Instead of them saying, "Oh, we'll have to pray for so and so..", try praying in love instead. Otherwise, keep it to yourself. Passive-aggressive might work w/ the kids, but I'm not buying it. The oppressive atmosphere brought my teen home w/ increased anxiety instead of peace. W/ condemnational authority, I chose not to re-enroll. Required loyalty cannot be the outcome of tyrrany.

HPPA is an excellent school that God is raising up!!! Changes are inevitable but definitely needed. This school has been called to be set apart and a washing away is taking place and it is going to be all gggooooddddd! My child has learned so much and has really grown academically and spiritually. She prays for sick family members and keeps me positive. I know that is because of what we teach her at home along with what she is being taught at HPPA. She looks forward to going to school everyday. I feel the presence of God from the moment I walk into the building and as I walk down the halls and into the classrooms. If some of these other parents could just get a grasp of 1 Corinthians 13.

I am deeply saddened that I find myself writing this. I have loved this school. My children have known no other place. We love the families. We love our teachers. But with aministrative changes came a different school, a school that doesn't value it's parents and students, has lost sight of compassion, no longer speaks the vision of commissioning Christ-like leaders, has no direction and whose families are departing in alarming numbers. Promises have been broken. The spirit of condemnation is heavy and the love of Jesus is lost in its shadow. I miss the school I once knew. It could be great, but it is definitely not today.

There are many hurting, long standing families leaving that have sown into the building of this school. The administration blames everyone else instead of doing a little self introspection and identifying and addressing the areas of weakness that have caused good families to be concerned. Parents have a God-given right to be involved in and concerned about their children. Since the change in administration the school seems to have no direction, no solid leadership, no parent communication. The bottom line is our children are our most valued assets. We want the best for them and HPPA was not the best this last year. I love the teachers, but ask how many are coming back next year. Great drama team, but ask if the drama teacher is returning. Athletics exist, but ask if the athletic director and coach are returning. Ask how many years teaching experience administrators have. Ask many questions!

Do your homework on this school. I just read a reveiw that insinuates parents departing HPPA had problem students or were themselves trouble. I assure you that is false. My children have attended many years. We have been long supporters of the school/church. My kids have been winners at science fair, and are A+, honor roll students. When the new administration took over, communication and "partnering" with parents ceased. When we voiced concerns, we were told maybe we shouldn't return. Ask the administration to provide statistics on how many students are not returning next year and of those, how many of them had attended longer than 3 years. Most of us departing are good families. We are saddened by the negative attitudes of administration and hurt that they cared so little about our children, us and their own staff. Ask how high their "staff" turnover was, not just teachers. Keep looking!!

This is not the same school it was 5 years ago or even last year. This last January that all changed with administrative changes. I found that the leadership was no longer of the Godly character that I had known in years past. I have observed administration berate their own teachers when they didn't realize a parent was in ear shot. I have seen administration berate the students. They are concerned with putting on a spiritual "show" but the everyday life of the school reveals something very different. A school is only as great as its leader and leadership here is weak at best.

We are so BLESSED to have our child at HPPA for the past 6 years. HPPA is founded on Christian belief's. our child has grown spiritual over the past year with a more open heart. The teachers and the administrates are very caring and open to both the students and parents. HPPA has a very strong sports program as well as other activities for the students. Yes there has been some changes at HPPA this year ,but that has truly not changed the performance in the school, it is just has strong has it was when it began. Our child has attended 3 other schools and HPPA is by far the BEST school for us.We can say that we will be a GRADUATING CLASS from HPPA. WE LOVE THE SCHOOL!!

I was not surprised at the comments I read below. After seeing how some of those students had began to act the last few years, I am not suprised by the comments of some of their parents. I am so glad that some changes have been made. Thank you new administration for being bold enough to address the problems that were seeming to get out of hand. HIgh Point is a private Christian school...not a place for parents to take their children because they can't function in public school. They are commissioning CHRIST-like leaders!!!Before this year, I was very skeptical about my child returning, but with the positive changes in administration and faculty, my child will be graduating from HPPA.

If you want your kids to excel in their academics while also growing in their spiritual walk with God than this is the place to be! The teachers really do care about the students. Whenever a child needs help in their academics the teachers always take time out of their free period and after school to help that student better understand the materials. The extra curricular groups are great! High Points Praise Team, Transcend, and the Drama Team are very anointed and have great leadership. Also, the sports program at High Point is great! We recently won the title of STATE CHAMPS in track. The Administration is great. The school recently changed administrators over christmas break. I believe that the new admin has stepped in and done an amazing job keeping everything rolling. She's a great Christ-like leader and strives for excellence at High Point. My kids and i it here.

I was in love with High Point when my daughter started there 3 years ago. This las January that all changed. After a change in administration, I found that the leadership was no longer of the Godly character that I had grown to love. Also, the pastoral leadership is not one that I would say is there for the children. I understand that a school has to be run as a business to a certain degree. At the sime time, I also understand that if the leadership is not following the guidelines that are set in place by God and accreditation boards it is destined to fail. I personally believe that if you are going to put your child into a place that claims a good Christian education this is not the place for your child to be. The spirit of condemnation is a fog that cant be lifted.

I used to say that this school reflected a genuine love for God/ a truthful, generous, nurturing spirit/ a desire to see children succeed/embrace their God appointed destiny. However, with the change in administration December '09, the heart of the school has changed. There is the sense that establishing authority is more important than showing God's love or grace. Parent participation in your child's eduction is no longer welcomed unless it's to fund a program or donate money. Parental feedback is looked upon as "not supporting the school" when it is really given because the parents CARE about the school. The administration focuses in on the small details like the color of nailpolish, but they seem completely unconcerned at the high teacher turnover, the gaps in the education, an unhappy and concerned body of parents and telling the truth. The school I once knew is gone. Pray before choosing this school.

The school claims to have a Christian education and high academic standards. I find that very hard to believe to say the least. The school dismissed my 2 kids for expressing our opinon on the disparities between White and African American kids, 12 weeks before my sixth grader's graduation. We enrolled our kids during the inception of the school 7 yrears ago but were never acknowledged for our contributions to the school. My child was an A&B student and represented the school's Spelling Bee contest. It became apparent in my quest for an alternate school HPPA's fared poorly compared to other reputable private schools. Our return on 45k investment in our kids were less than acceptable.

This past year has been the last year that my child attend HPPA. At first i was very pleased that my childgoing to get lockers, move over to the other side of the biulding, a new gym and many other things that they 'claimed' they were going to out in with our $500.00 andvance the vision fee. But when nearly none of these things they promised happened, i started to wonder where my money actually went. Besides that, we had had some problems with teachers and the students my child was in the classroom with. Yes, i will applaud High Point in their chapel and enrichment activities, but i am afraid my student will be behind when they enter the next grade. I do believe that they wouldve gotten the same if not a better experience if i had put them in a public school this past year.

High point is a truely wonderful school. I am so pleased with the education my children have received. Their education far surpasses ap classes offered at public school.

I have been very disappointed with High Point this school year. There have been so many broken and unkept promise from the school leadership that my child doesnt want to return next year. My child has been attending High Point for several years and things have never been so bad. I was glad to see that the tuition wasnt increasing for the upcoming school year, but the 'Vision Fee' was still being charged. I'm still waiting to see where the vision fee from last year benefited the lower school students. The students and parents were told the school would purchase a state of the art playground with their fundraising monies....well that was another disappointment. The education that my child received is great, but the church politics overflowing into the school got to be a little too much to handle.

I am so glad this is the last year for my child! All of the controversy that s been surrounding the Church, is now migrating itself into the school. The turnover rate for teachers is the highest I have ever seen for a privet Christian school. At the beginning of the school year I did not mind paying the 500.00 Vision Fee because it was told to us by Pastor Gary Simons himself how the funds were going to be used. I was very upset when January 05, 2009 came and nothing came to pass that was promised. I feel the school stole my money! For the amount of money HPPA charges, I would not recommend it!

You will notice that most of these reviews are for parents K4, K5, or 1st grade. Seems like most people figure out that the school doesn't have that much to offer for what they expect in payment, fees, and the latest $500.00 vision fee sprung on parents at the last minute. It was explained that the vision fee was to support the church. If you don't fully support the church in everything, then you will be ostisized and you and your child left out of the click. It takes a few years to see this and also being able to get close to the church / school leadership. They are all good people, with good hearts, but in over their heads for right now. The church and the school still have many more years of growing to do before they will ever live up to what they advertise.

High Point Preparatory Academy is a blessing to my family. From the very first day that I placed my feet on the HPPA campus, I have been very impressed with the administration and faculty. The teachers embrace the children as their own, and make them feel loved and accepted. They strengthen the whole child, and prepare them to stand strong in a crumbling world. My child is not only getting a quality education, but is also being filled with the word of God each day. We count it a great Joy to have HPPA a part of our family.

The cost of the tuition is not worth placing your child in a school that is not accredited. The teachers are majority white but the students are majority minority and I there are instances where there is unfair practices by the teachers to the students. The teachers also vary in years of experience with most having less than ten years. The school is beautiful but offers very little in extra curricular activities for K5 - 6 grades. Homework is reasonable but if there is a special assignment, notice is short and you have little time to prepare. There is no parent teacher organization & parent involvement is limited to fundraisers [many], class parties and field trips. If considering HPPA the 'sales pitch' will have you enrolling your child immediately but you will soon be disappointed with the quality of teachers and activities.

I have been so incredibly pleased with all aspects of the school. I appreciate the care, attentivenes,and love for the children the teachers exhibit. This is not to say that the teachers are pushovers or don't correct the children when appropriate, but yet a true sense of ownership by the teachers for the childrens development. I have been equally pleased with the curriculm and eduaction that the students receive. AS long as our family continues to receive the level of service we have received to this point, I will continue to keep my child enrolled at this school.

My daughter just finished Kindergarten at HighPoint and we were very pleased with the teachers, curriculum, class size, and leadership. This school has lots of enrichment programs-- Spanish, art, music, P.E., library, computer class. They also offer after school karate and dance classes. The class sizes are much smaller than public school Kindergarten which we feel was a big advantage.
