I love this school. They actually teach the children - my 6yr old went there and now my 4yr old will be starting her second year in Pre-K4. She loves to learn. And the price is very reasonable.

Overall COC is a great school. The teachers are very nice. The infant through PK4 program is good. Mrs Hinkley is the best. My child loves her! It's a small school and your child will get personal attention.

We LOVE this School!! My Daughter looks forward to seeing the teachers and students. She is engaged and excited about learning. I love the Director and teachers. They are all experienced, knowledgeable, patient and love what they do.The parents are all friendly and participate with the Parent Teacher Organization. This school has been a God Send for me!! I could not have chosen a better place for my daughter. It is clean, smells good, and the classrooms are not cluttered. Great learning environment!

I love this school. My son was going to school there since he 18 months old until he was almost three. Now that he is four he still stays at home with me but have been helping me with cirriculum to teach him at home. All of the staff is great and wonderful. They have always been helpful and they try to teach the children above their level. In some ways my son is on a second grade level. I highly recommend Cross of Christ. Leah H.

My family believes this school is a blessing! I have two children there. Our 3-year-old came home the first day counting in Spanish. The children are well-behaved and happy. The director has always been responsive to any of my issues or concerns. This school is a great asset to the community.

Mrs.KK's class is the best! You have to have your child in her class she loves her children like they were her own. She is a very good teacher my child has learned alot from her.

What a wonderful place for a child to start their school career. My son has been attending since he was 18 months and he is now 3. I couldn't imagine him attending school anywhere else. He has been learning since the 1st day. It's like a big family. The teachers love and care about the children like they would their own. The Director of the School is also very hands on with all the children. We were really excited when they decided to have a 12 month class starting fall 2009 because now our daughter will be able to attend Cross of Christ as well. Any child that attends Cross of Christ is truly blessed.

I love this school. My daughter has really learned since the first day of school. The school only goes up to the 4th grade. My daughter hates the thought of leaving. This school is close net and treat everyone like family. My daughter loved getting up every morning going to school. She enjoyed learning.

If you can just get your child in the class with Mrs. Hinckley, you will see why I commute 25 miles one way to get my child to this school. The staff is awesome with teaching the curriculum to the children.

I love this school. It is a safe environment for children. My child has attended there since kindergarten and will be going into the 4th grade. The classes are small allowing for individual attention. The children learn core academics along with computers, art, religion and Spanish. The love of Christ is evident in the school and in their philosphy of education.

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.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
