We have 3 children currently enrolled here and we couldn't be happier. It's such a tight knit school; everyone knows everyone. The staff and teachers really care about each individual child and family. Our only wish is that there was enough demand for it to go through high school. We LOVE LOVE LOVE this school and couldn't be happier with it. :-)

Small classes and friendly staff drew us in to VPCS! We've been attending the school since 2007 and couldn't be happier with our school choice. Our two boys are challenged with the curriculum yet are inspired by the Christian-based lessons. Go VPCS Lions!

I am so pleased and happy with the edcuation my son is receiving. He is in first grade and attended kindergarten last year. I enjoy the fact he is learning scripture and is doing well in all his other subjects. The class sizes are small so each child receives one on one help if needed. The teachers are not overwhelmend and are happy. Village Parkway Christian School is definitely a great place to send your child for a quality education.

I like how the teachers and staff really do care about the students. The fact that they include a lot of memorization gives something challenging for my Kinder child that began reading words at 18 mo. and already knows a lot of basic math. They provide a structured and highly disciplined environment and the kids (eventually) demonstrate great manners. Class size is small and I know my son won't have any teachers that are burned out.

We have been very pleased with our son's education. We love the small class size and personal attention each student receives. The teachers are very dedicated and caring and the principal is an excellent leader. The curriculum is challenging and Christ centered. Even in the early grades, Biblical teachings including scripture memory are an intergral part of the curriculum. Our son can't wait to go to school each day! The staff has always been very helpful to me and our son. I couldn't be happier with our experience.

I have no intention of re-enrolling my child at this school!!!! I will no longer subject my child to this enviroment. Trust me, you will know if you enroll. My child will miss the other kids...but this seriously is not worth the tears and frustration. The sad thing about it is some teachers have no clue of the negative influence & impact they inflict on these young and innocent children. I can only pray and hope someone will care enough to provide additional training (course on parent, student etiquette) and incorporate some accountability to staff and teachers. This school could be great.... If anyone knows of another private school...please share! My child will be advancing into 1st grade after this school year. Thanks

This school has been great for my child. I found out about them on the Texas CPS website and saw they always have perfect scores with state inspections. The teachers/staff are always friendly and available.

This is a great school. They teach a classical education in addition with the ABEKA curriculum which is a combination that is wonderful. The bible teaching is right on with the word of God. I had a child in 3rd grade that was learning algebra, typing, weights/ measurements, classical history, reading at a 5th grade level, and doing so well! The staff is great & truly love the children. My only drawback is that there are no sports program, however this isn't too much a concern for me since education is my top priority. There are many other sports programs out there if I really wanted to put my kids in it. I would highly recommend this school to anyone!

Very expensive mistake. Our pre-k child attended 2008-2009 and we were very disappointed in the curriculum. The teachers teach only the minimum required, and would not provide more challenging task when asked. The principal seams nice to talk to but only tells you what you want to hear. They are biased towards church members. There are limited extracurricular activities. Don't waste your money. The only good thing was the christian bible teachings.

CCCS focuses on the Classical approach to education beginning with the Grammar, Rhetoric and Dialectic levels. It is literature based with little if any emphasis on computers. They teach Latin beginning in 3rd grade and teach kids to learn from written resources. It's a great school.

The classical curriculum is great. Availability of extracurricular activities is limited. The teachers are great. The new administration should be a breath of fresh air.

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.

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.
