This school needs tremendous improvement spiritually, morally and academically. Teachers are replaced several times a year. Last year there were three high school science teachers before year's end. The Spanish teacher had no control over his class. English teacher spent 1/2 of her class time emailing and facebooking per student. High School History class was on chapter 6 in March. Honors classes are a total failure.

My son has gone to ETcs for 3 years and we ahve had nothing but a positive experience. He is on the A honor roll and reads at a higher grade level. Etcs teaches the children good Christian morals and values and cares about all the children and their families the children are also taught scriptures and the Bible. It is a blessing to see my son which is 2nd grade use this in his daily life. We love ETCS!

My daughter attended this school for 2 years and we recently pulled her out. After pulling my daughter out of the school and putting her in a public school we found out she was behind in both math and language because of the material at ETCS. While at ETCS, my daughter was threatened by one of the Board of Directors and my daughter also had to go through weeks of name calling and ridicule from other students while the administration did nothing. My daughter goes to counseling regularly and is having trouble coping with the events that happened at ETCS as well as getting adjusted to the new material at the public school. I would never send her back to this school again! This school is not based on strong Christian values as they claim.

ETCS is not just a School its a family. For three years now my son has been there. My wife has had leukemia. All of the staff is such a support, praying for us and contacting us by phone, cards, etc. My son loves the classes and I love the fact he learns the Word of God as well. My son is in second grade with a fifth grade reading level, that ought to say something about the commitment to excellence about our wonderful School

This school provides a caring environment for all children. I believe it is raising up a positive generation.

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.
