This was a great school from the start. We moved out here from El Paso and interviewed several school. Out of all the schools we interviewed this School is the one the kids liked the best, and they were the only ones who prayed with us before our interview, they were the only ones who called us back at the end of the day to see how we like to school and our search was going. Our kids were a little behind in reading and they went above and beyond to catch them up. School staff and teachers as well as the parents that we've met have been very nice and very helpful. I also like the fact that the superintendent of the school isn't afraid of getting his hands dirty and stepping right into the action and helping out. I have yet to meet A teacher or staff member who isn't willing to go above their call of duty to help the kids or parents. I would definitely recommend this school to anyone in and around the San Antonio area. Although we felt the school was priced high at the time of our interview we also felt it was well worth it by the end of the school year. Still believe it's a bit high but it's hard to put a price on your child's education.
CHFBS is an incredible school that consistently manages to top it's own performance year after year. I began to attend Castle Hills as a preschooler in 1984 and graduated as a Senior in 2000. Now, I am a teacher in the school and have my own son enrolled in kindergarten. CHFBS is far more than a school, it is a community and a family. The teachers are encouraging and supportive, and genuinely care about each student individually. The academic standards are high, and extracurricular activities including athletics, clubs, and the arts abound. I strongly urge all parents considering schools in the area to come in person to speak to the staff and to see the students and the facility. This is a special and blessed place.
This is truly a great school here in San Antonio. The teachers are loving but encoourage kids to achieve their very best academically. The staff has looked out for the well being of my kids and let me know when they had any concerns. The superintendant is VERY hands on and knows and chats with the kids daily. His Christian leadership is felt throught the entire campus. My kids are in High School and find the teachers and courses to be sufficiently challenging. We also love that parental involvement is allowed and highly encouraged at Castle Hills.
Castle Hills is a place where children thrive! Students are encouaged to think critically, solve problems, find solutions, and to develop their unique talents and gifts! You and your children will be blessed.
CHFBS is an uplifting and positive place to go to school, as well as work. We recently moved to San Antonio, and luckily found CHFBS. My children are in 2nd and 4th grade, and I love both the academic challenge and the Christ-centered attitude in their classes. I love that the over parents have similar values and expectations for their children. I also am a teacher in the secondary part of the school. Wow! I have the privilage of teaching amazing kids who have a bright future. I hope my own children grow up to have the work ethic, desire to suceed, kindness, humility, love of service, school spirit, respect, humor, and desire to follow Christ that I see in my students. I think CHFBS is the tops, and I encourage interested parents/students to come check it out!
We made the change from the public school system to private this year and we are so happy we did! Castle Hills staff cares about the kids, not just about numbers (grades, awards, etc). Our daughter is thriving there, not just surviving. We have 3 more kids heading to Castle Hiils in the future, and we are at peace about where they will be.
I cannot say enough about the quality of education at CHFBS. There is a culture of academic excellence at this school which is grounded in a Christ-centered atmosphere. It can be felt from your first encounter with the administration, faculty, and/or students. My children have been enriched by their time here and will never attend any other school. CHFBS is the best! 'We are because HE is'
My daughter is currently a junior in high school at CHFBS. I have 4 sons who attended a public school system and knew I did not want her doing the same. I enrolled her into the pre-school program at CHFBS, and then the elementary program to where she is now. I was always extremely pleased with each phase of education, as every aspect of her learning experience was exemplary. It actually seemed that each phase just got better and better. The secondary staff is superior, as our superintendent strives for our secondary faculty to have master degrees or better. But, more than the level of their degree, they each bring invaluable experience and a dedicated heart for teaching and sincere love for our children, which is exactly what teaching should be. The administration team is a dedicated team that works together to provide education with excellence. Not only am I pleased with the quality of education she has received but the spiritual education at CHFBS has given her something far more valuable that anything she could have received at any other school. I know that when my daughter graduates this next year, she is well prepared to face whatever lies ahead.
Excellent academic and Christian values are taught at CHFBS. My daughter is in kindergarten and son is a freshman and both are growing up to be well-behaved and intelligent children. The superintendent, principals and vice-principals are excellent role models and are the back bone of the school.
Superb academics. An environment of acceptance and encouragement. Every student is elevated to beyond his potential.
Our daughter has been at chubs for 3 years and I cannot image a better school. She is challenged academically, participates in multiple extracurricular activities and plays varsity sports. She has grown in her leadership ability and her relationship with Christ. I encourage you to Make an appointment for a tour or come to an open house, you will not regret it.
My daughter graduated from this fine school in 1991. Now I have three grandsons who have been attending for 6 years. We are very happy with the excellence in all areas of this school. The teachers have a heart for the Lord and for the students, the academics are above average and technology in the classroom is becoming cutting edge. Mr. Pinkston came on board in 2010 as Superintendent and has made great strides in putting the school "on the map". Athletics are excelling in all areas and continuing to grow. The Varsity Football team which just started 4 years ago has advanced to play the state championship game.
We have had 2 children at Castle Hills First Baptist School for over 6 years. The school and teachers are very supportive, easy to work with and get information from, and truly dedicated to lifting up the students so they reach their full potential. We are sending our third child there next year when she enters the first grade. If you are seeking a school with a strong focus on Christian education and leadership, this is definitely one you should look into further.
We have been a part of CHFBS for 3 years now. I have had children in every area (elementary, intermediate, middle school and high school). Of the many Christian schools my children have attended (due to relocation, not dissatisfaction), I can honestly say that CHFBS stands out above the rest. Strong academics, competitive sports, and most importantly, a Christ centered education are provided here. EVERY faculty and staff member exhibit this standard daily. I have always felt heard, appreciated and loved, and my children have felt the same, no exceptions. I cannot recommend this school enough!
First and foremost, Christ is being known at Castle Hills First Baptist School, so He gets all the Glory, biblically speaking. Academically, there is an emphasis on high achievement as well as doing your best by loving, caring, well adjusted, and needless to say, high ranking teachers and staff who love the Lord and are willing to go the "extra mile" for a student to achieve their endeavors. Let us not forget, the hardworking godly grandfather, father, son, brother, uncle, hence superintendent Mr. Michael Pinkston who runs rampant with his passionate personality and sincere devotion to such a Christian institution. It is truly a wonderful experience we have encountered to be under such leadership that Mr. "P" displays. If you are considering CHFBS, you will not be disappointed. And the student body are very welcoming. It's truly a family here at CHFBS. Soli Deo Gloria!
This is absolutely a top-notch school. The teachers are caring leaders that look for the best in the students. We are beyond pleased with this school and its caring, educational environment.
My daughter, who is now in the 6th grade has attended Castle Hills First Baptist School since Kindergarten. I have found that this school cares about our children. They care about their faith, their education and their overall well being. I have and will continue to recommend this school to others in the San Antonio area.
Castle Hills First Baptist has a first-rate school, with excellent students, faculty, leadership and facilities. The school prepared me for my future, and my wife and I have now entrusted the school with helping us teach our second grade daughter (with other kids to follow). If you're interested in teaching your children a Biblical worldview, then look no further. This is the place.
Our family is very happy with the school. The administration and staff are very helpful and involved. The principal is always involved in the current events of the school. The Christian environment is encouraging and develops a solid foundation.
Since the classes at Castle Hills are not as large as public school classes, students like me are able to learn easier with their teachers. While I was at public school it was difficult for me to understand math. However, after my family and I decided moving to a smaller school to test it out not only did I find Christ but I also gained an experience no public school can provide. Furthermore, The athletic program is great and the only flaw I see in it is that there is no soccer team. Other than that the school football team is great as well as our other sports.
