This school not only gives an outstanding education to students, but it also prepares them for what they will face in life on a spiritual level. The English teachers are especially good at what they do. Students can go to college knowing how to write well and what to expect when writing college papers. The BCS administrative board is doing their best in a difficult situation. It is clear God is with them and has chosen them for this present time. It seems most of the people who are mad at the board are individuals who simply did not get their way. I pray Bracken comes together to further God's Kingdom as their motto of the year suggests.

Bracken Christian School offers everything we had hoped and prayed for in a private school. An excellent history of students excelling in academics, sports, electives, and biblical studies to prepare them for college and their future endeavors. They even offer a specialized science lab for those with medical field aspirations. Implementing technology-based education, daily devotionals with praise and worship music, and offering community leadership training and service opportunities are just some of the planned objectives and goals for the school. The teachers are truly focused on the individual needs of each student and genuinely care about the kids. If you desire a Kingdom-based education for your children you will love Bracken Christian School.

A blessed school. My child has attended for six years. We joyfully re enrolled for the upcoming school year. It is a financial sacrifice for a Godly environment that educates my child to impact his community for Christ, while preparing him academically.

I have seen many changes happening, in a positive way. My kids love Bracken and they are getting the education I expect them to receive in a Godly environment. It's unfortunate that those who are negative don't want to see the positive especially since it's our kids future we're investing in. God is a forgiving God and maybe forgiveness and healing can happen to those who have been affected by the leadership in time.

Sadly, Bracken is nothing like the school it used to be under the current leadership.

BCS is perfect for the parents who are looking for a school that offers a Bible based curriculum with a small classroom environment. As a teacher, I am grateful for my students and the relationships I have developed with them and their parents. To speak freely about our Lord and share my story to further His kingdom is something I also cherish. Although no school is perfect, our hearts and passion for the students are very important. I would encourage you to come visit and see for yourself.

Sadly the drama at this school continues. The boards long term members refuse to address the problems choosing instead to demote the administrator to elementary principal and blame others. This schools board backs the wrongful termination of a man who did his best to model integrity while supporting a man, now elementary principal, who is the model of situational ethics. He will say and do whatever he needs to yet this is the man the board backs. The boards solution is to turn up the corner of the rug and sweep the truth under and hopes it all goes away. Until the elementary principal and the long term board members leave stay away from this school.

Sorry to say,but the parent that posted about the problems with Bracken has hit the nail on the head.Until the board does something to correct its mistake in hiring the current administrator,I'm afraid Bracken is in for even more difficult times.WE LOVE BRACKEN BUT...

I love the family atmosphere that embraces the students from pre-K through 12th grade. The big kids love on the little ones and the little ones love look up to and admire the big ones. The teachers go above and beyond to prepare the students for successful life both academically and spiritually. My daughter comes home from school every day a happy child which is priceless.

My oldest child graduated from Bracken in 2004 and I have two more that have been at Bracken since K-5, one in 10th grade and one in seventh. I wouldn't have them anywhere else. The teachers are fantastic, the administration is incredible and the entire student body is one big Christian family who love and care about each other and the Lord. Compared to other private schools in San Antonio and surrounding areas tuition at Bracken is very reasonable. The cost is actually an incredible deal considering the type of honest, caring, responsible individuals that are developed at this school. Best school EVER!!!

I had a child graduate from Bracken last year that attended k-12. He always had excellent teachers and was well prepared for college. Many of his peers are now attending Texas A&M, The University of Texas, Baylor University, and other fine schools locally and nationwide. I have another child there now and am completely confident he is being prepared academically and spiritually to be a successful, productive citizen.

My oldest child is a Bracken Christian School alumni and was well prepared both academically and spiritually. This gives great comfort for my youngest child who is currently a high school student at BCS. Both my children are loved by their teachers, have positive relationships with the staff and students, are/were taught all subject matter from a Biblical perspective. The teachers are caring, qualified, know their subject matter, and are great spiritual mentors. I've seen this first hand in my oldest child's life while in college. I am blessed to know that my children are loved and prayed for by such a great group of teachers and staff. BCS has been such a blessing to our family.

We came to Bracken Christian School in 1998 and fell in love with the teachers and staff. Two of our three children have graduated from Bracken after attending K5-12th. Our third child is in highschool and has been here since K5 as well. We have been tremendously blessed by this school. My older kids were more than equipped for college and are doing very well. HIghly recommend that you consider Bracken.

The teachers at this school do not have adequate skills to be teaching. They do not know the subject matter and are relegated to just reading out of the text book since they cannot compehend the material. I saw no Christian leadership in the way the staff carried themselves. I actually see better Christian values at the local public school. If you are wanting the cache of saying yyour kids go to a private school with out any bennefit, from it or you like the status of paying a lot for school then this is the place for you. If you care about Christian values STAY AWAY FROM THIS SCHOOL!!!

I can say enough about this amazing school. We have relocated several times and my children have gone to many schools but this school wins the prize for being a school that TRULY teaches the whole child. I recommend this school every chance I get. The teachers and administration are top notch and actually engages with the kids and it allows them to succed because they feel a since of ownership in their own educaiton.

I have been at Bracken since Kindergarten, That is 12 years. Next year I will be a senior and I am dreading leaving Bracken. It has been the best thing that has ever happened in my life. I wouldn't trade this school and it's loving teachers, staff, and students for anything.

Our famliy has been at Bracken for 3 yrs now and would not change schools for anything. Both our kids are in elementary and I have seen them grow so much using the ABEKA learning system. Not only does everyone at the school want to see the students excel but there is a genuine feeling of love and love for the Lord. Parents are encouraged to be involved but not expected to be if unable. Even during these tough times my husband and I have agreed that Bracken is the best of the best & will continue to sacrafice in order for our kids to attend. Tuition is actually less than most places we checked. Our kids love learning because of the teacher commitment and the overall spirit of the school.

I have been a public school teacher for eighteen years. Our daughter came to us late in life and began kindergarten this year. She has grown so much both academically and behaviorally, and I know this would not have happened in a class with twenty-two+ other children, which is what is to be expected in the very good, but over-crowded, Comal Independent School District. Bracken is exactly the place for my child. It is a struggle financially, but one worth every penny.
