Our daughter started at CRBS 3 years ago at 16 months old. My wife and I immediately fell in love with Mrs. Kim, who nurtured and watched over our daughter like she was her own. There were only 8 other kids her age in the classroom. The kids were sweet and the other parents were very involved. She learned Christian songs and Bible verses. It is exactly the kind of safe, warm and loving environment that we want for her. The teachers for the Pre-K have all been there over 15 years. We have been very impressed with the school overall and our daughter is enrolled for the upcoming year. Our only concern will be the smaller class sizes when she gets to third ir fourth grade.

While CRBS has some great teachers, the change in principals has not been good at all. There are also several helicopter parents who instigate a lot of drama and negativity. Many teachers have left recently, and the quality of the school is going downhill. We are looking for a different school now.

This is my daughters first year at CRBS. I absolutely love the staff and community. Everyone is extremely helpful and friendly. I can feel at ease knowing that my child is in good hands at her school. After one month of attendance her penmanship has improved tremendously. We highly recommend CRBS!

hi, I actually just graduated from CRBS last year and am now in high school. Clay Road taught me alot but I feel like i don't know as much as i need to for high school. I recommend CRBS, it's a great school and a great environment, but i don't know about the teaching.

Finally, an EXCELLENT traditional education at reasonable tuition rates. My kids love the small class sizes, the quieter classrooms (public school was getting chaotic) and all the wonderful field trips. CYFAIR field trips were all to one place, a big metal barn. We parents tried our best to make the field trips interesting, but I always longed for my kids to experience the real thing. Now that we're at Clay Road the field trip experiences are rich and varied. A real highlight to my kids education. The godly Principal and Asst. Principal are true role models. They love the kids and the kids love it them!

My son just graduated from this school , We always be grateful that we have been part of this wonderful family for the last two years, my son learned not just only at academic level but @ Christian level too. When we needed guidance and support we found it with this Christian family, they give my son the opportunity to find his true identity . thank you all and God bless you always.

The teachers and homework all become more manageable as the year progressed, and this was a growing change for all of us. The students are working hard to make the school better, one boy is even working on a project to build a track in the field area. The majority of the middle school staff were new to the school this year, and they have adjusted schedules to keep the kids from getting too worn out. This is a very good school that I would recommend, but it may take some getting used to. Also they have recently hired an experienced volleyball coach.

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.
