I attended Immanuel Baptist Christian School for 6 years, and I have yet to receive an education equal or even close to the intense learning processes that I was lucky enough to be a part of there. IBCS teaches elementary and middle school similarly to an AP class - harder, faster, more challenging, and infinitely more rewarding. My teachers worked one-on-one with myself and other students, no one was ever left out of the loop. Even though we were being taught an accelerated curriculum, time was always taken to assure that everyone understood the material before moving on in the lesson. I highly recommend IBCS for all children in any grade.

Excellent structured learning environment. Dedicated faculty, Abeka curriculum is advanced. Administration is a bit 'stuffed-shirt', but generally responsive to parental concerns. Typical students are two grade levels ahead of their public school peers.

High School teachers have too many preparations per subject. There should be more than one teacher in every subject area. Other than that High school has a lot of potential. Elementary P.E discipline needs improvement. All student should not be discipline for misbehavior by one student. Sometimes 'punishment does not fit the crime'

My children have attended Immanuel for the past 7 years. The learning environment is unsurpassed, they have a 18-21 teacher per child ratio, which is perfect for teaching and learning. The teachers are readily available to address your concerns as is the Principal. The curriculum is challenging, the Christian atmosphere is just the cherry on top! It is quality education at a reasonable price.

I may be only a student, but I tell you that this school is the greatest school you could ever find for your child. For a person with a small child it is great because not only does your child get a great education here but he or she get's tought in the Christ-like way. This school is great in all ways. One of my favorite things about this school is that after school you see a group of kids hanging out, but not all of the same age but for example a kid from 5th grade, a senior , a sophmore a 7 th grader, this is what makes this school worth-while : everyone knows each other. I've never been happier at this school and I can guarantee your child will love it too. And what also makes it great are the teachers who will love your children.

My child is entering the second grade for the school year 2003. We are familiar with the abecca curriculum taught at the school, which was our first criteria for selecting Immanuel. In addition, we met with the Principal, and Vice Principal, toured the facilities and we were impressed with the attention giving us and all questions that my wife and I had were thoroughly answered. We find the staff focused, motivated, and most important caring to teach each student to the best of their ability.

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.
