I love that the class sizes are significantly smaller than those in public school and that the children receive a Christian education in addition to core curriculum. Small class sizes benefit the children tremendously because the teachers are able to spend more time meeting each child's specific needs. Unlike public school, children do not require as much time in core academic areas (because of those low numbers!), so the children are able to broaden their horizons by spending more time in specials. Local public school children are slighted by attending less than an hour per day of a very limited selection of Specials such as PE, Music, and Computers. Here, the children are exposed to at least two a day of PE, Art, Music, Drama, Gardening, Spanish, and Computers. This array of Special classes, combined with the core and Christian academics, creates an extremely balanced educational experience!
The teachers at the school are highly qualified, certified teachers, many of whom are retirees from local public schools. The head of the school has an unbelievably positive reputation amongst educators and parents alike. You cannot get a better Head of School!
I am a parent of a student in Middle School. The curriculum is rigorous and challenging; but the teachers make each day fun, exciting, and engaging. I am in constant awe of the innovative teaching strategies that are used, and my son has certainly blossomed both academically and socially.
The class sizes are small, which allow for more individualized attention. My son transferred from a public school, and was welcomed with open arms by both the teachers and students. The curriculum is advanced, but he easily acclimated to the new expectations due to the creative teaching strategies implemented by each of his teachers.
The Christian education he is receiving is amazing, and I am thrilled to see how God is working in his life every day. I cannot praise this school enough! 5 +++ stars!!
