My children and kinder and second grade. Homework amount is just right. Enough to reinforce learning and build good homework discipline but not so much that there is no time for family or play - two things that are also important to development.
Students are praised for effort as well as accomplishment. They are expected to produce solid results but they are never shamed into it. Rather they are encouraged and supported. This builds persistence and determination.
The children focus on character qualities throughout the year and receive honors for exemplifying those character traits. This school puts feet to its commitment to build character as well as academic excellence.
I have a child in second grade and one in kinder. This school is fabulous! Academically my children excel while the school integrates fun into learning. My children enjoy going to school and feel cared for by their teachers. This school also provides a solid Christian foundation that reinforces what we teach at home. This is a terrific place to send your children!
God lead our family to Castle Hills First Baptist School, and we have been so blessed to be there! We have three girls in middle school and high school. They are thriving in their education and also equally in their relationship with Christ! The teachers and administrators are like family to use. They truly care about the families in the school. We are very happy there!
