Horrible school. If you graduate and can get into a decent college, you won't be able to follow the curriculum because the CHFBC curriculum hasn't prepared you for the real world of math or science, nor even history or social studies. You probably won't get into college anyways, because the curriuculum is so lacking. Doesn't anyone out there care that our students aren't even getting a BASIC education in anything at this school? No wonder we can't compete in the modern world, if math and social studies isn't being taught.
1. High turnover of teachers. 2. Teachers unable to control their classrooms. 3. Inexperienced teachers. 4. Poor communication between administration/teachers and parents. 5. Unfriendly teachers.
I am an alumni of CHFBC and Concordia University graduate. I can say that the faculty are the most caring educators! I would strongly encourage parents who are deciding on a good moral foundation for their children is to enroll them into Caste Hills First Baptist. CHFBC instilled in me a sense of moral value and a desire for success!
As a recent student of Castle Hills and just finishing my first year of Baylor University. Castle Hills taught me great social skills and a great spiritual foundation. I have great morals thanks to CHS but academics could improve and there is few athletics.
This was my daughter's first year at CHFBS. The small student to teacher ratio has given her the opportunity to have the positive attention that she needs. The school has a very loving and nurturing environment. I feel that my child is getting a strong biblical and educational foundation. Parent/Teacher communication has been excellent this year. Even in Kindergarten the students are exposed to so much! They have Spanish, computer classes, as well as music twice a week. She will be returning in the fall.
Our academic programs are still lacking, NHS has fallen through and has yet to recover. We are still lacking in a football team, baseball team, and our soccer team may soon disappear. High school parents rarely attend school functions or school prayer meetings. Fortunately, this is not the case with our elementary parents. Though these comments may seem grim, we must remember that things could quickly change for the best if our management improves.
My personal view is that of a student, who sees many areas, which are in desperate need of improvement.
This is by far the best school I know of to send children of Christian families. The faculty is supurb.They are an extremely loving and dedicated group of Christians that treat each child as an individual responsibility. Those that have children of their own send them here. I can hardly get over how much love and respect the children have for each other. I am proud that we are a part of this school.
K-4 is wonderful program. It's a perfect mix of strong academics and preschool-appropriate fun.
Wonderful preschool. Strong academics and thriving Christian atmosphere. Teachers and staff are dedicated to excellence and truly love the children.
However, for what you pay, that school offers the most band for your buck. The opportunities for parent involvement, without micromanaging, are plentiful and varied to suit many different interests. A great, nurturing environment for students but not somewhere I would keep a child who has high academic ambitions. There have been no national merit scholars, nor have any graduates ever gone on to attend an ivy league school.
Both of our children have been at CHFBS since kindergarten and the low student to teacher ratio has been a fantastic blessing to our family. Both girls are self-confident, happy, and faith-filled. We have been very pleased!
My son has been at this school for 8 years since he was 3 years old. The education is excellent. I believe in teaching phonics and this school uses a curriculum that does that plus the basics. This prepares the child for public school and college.
CHFBS is a wonderful school with an 'Awesome' attitude. They teach to the child and consider each child as an individual.
