My daughter is on-line at this school and it is fabulous. We will remain here in her complete education. The staff, resources, and academics are exceptional. The Word of God is exemplified in their school and ministry. I always recommend it to all interested in an on-line education. An anonymous parent
We love CCS! Smallest classroom size in San Antonio. Especially, when you look around and find some schools are cramming 20 kids in one kindergarten classroom. Teachers are great and there is a lot of parental involvement. Public schools can't deny children an education and private schools can turn those bad apples away. I'd rather pay for tuition than have to deal with that.
We are very happy after completing our first year at CCS. Great academics, with small classroom size. The teachers are great and enthusiastic.
Money well spent sending my daughter to Cornerstone Christian School (CCS). My daughter has been attending CCS for two years now and she loves every moment of it. CCS has biblical foundation incorporated into their school curriculum. Their rigorous academic programs are balanced with their excellent athletic programs. They excel in reading, writing, math, science, and art but importantly, they teach students leadership/followership using biblical principles. The CSS management is bar-none from top to bottom and always objective but sensitive to the parents concern. The teachers are highly qualified and are eager to work with parents. Just like everything else in life, communication is paramount in a successful relationship. Parents and CSS teachers continue to talk with each other throughout the year, emphasizing on the child s spiritual, academic, physical and social progress. Their increase in enrollment over 20% in the past year is a testimony of their academic strength. Although there are many private schools in the area, I chose CCS because of their commitment to use Christ-Centered teaching principles. Truly, CCS is money well spent for my daughter s education.
My chidren have been at Cornerstone Christian Schools for the last three years. Overall, we have been pleased. While they already have a good academic program, they are continually striving to improve. Both of my children have to work hard to continue to do well in their studies. Two of the things that my family truly appreciates are the caring teachers/staff and the way the school holistically incorporates Biblical principles throughout all areas. While no place is perfect, we definitely have had a good experience here at Cornerstone Christian Schools.
A lot of the ratings on this site are either 1-2 stars or 5 stars. As an employee and parent of the school, I would say the best way to find the truth would be to look at their retention rate and growth rate. For the school year of 2010-11, our school grew across all grade levels by 20 percent. This year we have already surpassed that growth for the re-enrollment numbers for next fall. If the school were as bad as some comment on here, we wouldn't be increasing so fast in numbers for 2 years in a row.
CCS looks enticing from the outside facade.However,the green grass,trees,and freshly painted interiors are not the major factors that prepare a student for their future.The school would appear to be attempting to up their curriculum value (they were attempting to bring an AP program),but without a focused administration (on current students-not new ones),the academic growth will not occur.Elementary is okay;the secondary level where many foundations are being laid (especially math) posed some lasting issues for us.Without middle school pre-advance placement classes and advance placement classes in high school (with test scores that can be moved forward),your student will leave CCS with a deficit in comparison to public and some other private schools.Athletics are fine-the best athletic facilities-they just seem to have constant league issues-however the major focus of an education should be on the academics.A family can raise a child to love,know and rely on the Lord Jesus Christ;not all are able to deliver the knowledge and experiences in the various academic areas.We spent many years at CCS-not a bad experience-probably not the best academic choice for my children.Proverbs24:3-6
I was a student at CCS for 9 years, and I truly regret it. This is NOT a God-based school at all. The administration are hypocritical, judgemental and completely self-righteous. They do not care about your personal life, only as long as you are following THEIR way of life. This school is extremely denominational, since the staff and students almost shun every other religion & lifestyle. The academics are terrible since there is no challenge. The rules are very strict (especially the dress code: you'll get written up for wearing a hair-tie on your wrist). Also, you'll get in trouble for wearing a peace sign, because they believe it's a "broken-cross" when it is most certainly not! When I think back on the students & teachers there, only one word pops into my head: ARROGANCE.
i have been going to this school for almost a year now...it is wonderful school and i suggest that if you need a school to go to then this is the one!
My son went to CCS for about 4 years. His spirit was broken. We pulled him out . He is now excelling in his new school. It was very sad to see other children been treated bad. The outside looks great. The inside is not god driven.
I love this school. My child has gone there for 5 years now and although the curriculum has been challenging, the teachers have been very supportive and helpful. My child went in a shy child and she has truly blossomed. There is new administration and there is great communication between parents and staff. I have two more kids I'll be sending there and I know the school will do everything possible to help me financially to put them there.
My children absolutely love attending Cornerstone. We have had a very positive experience. This school has a spirit of excellence in all they do.
Last year was my daughter's first year at a private school and I must say that as a parent I was very disappointed with CCS. Their lack of communication with us parents and the attitudes we recieved from the office staff anytime we needed help. Not to mention the unexusable lack of discipline of the students and teachers as well. I would never recommend this school to anyone.
i love this school i go there and ever since they got there new administration our academics and athletics have progressed greatly. i highly recommend this school especially if you are looking for scholarships and excellent colleges. our school has gotten over 2 million dollars in scholarships in the 08-09 school year
I have 2 sons, one in elementary and one in middle school, they love this school! We moved to San Antonio in Aug.07 and my children had never gone to a private school, so they were very nervous. The other students welcomed and embraced my boys. They made A-B's in public school and they continue to make A-B's at Cornerstone. They tell me that they'll never leave! They are not outstanding sportsmen, but they play many sports and have never been treated unfairly because of their skill level.
I have two children attending CCS elementary school. The oldest started in K-5 and is now in his 5th yr at CCS. With God's blessing both my children will be graduates of CCS. I would definitely recommend CCS to any parent desiring a excellent education in a Christian environment. Academically: Great School. The curriculum is demanding. It does prepare the children for college. Homework is assigned a min.of 4 days out of the week. The children are taught above their grade level. Extracurricular activities: Great. Excellent Music teacher. The kids have every opportunity to participate in various sports. Art is also part of the curriculum. Parent involvement: Outstanding. You can guarantee a full house at any of the events throughout the year.
As someone who is not a parent of a Cornerstone student, but as a former employee of Cornerstone, I have very little good to say about this school. I think that most of the teachers have good intentions, but are thwarted by the lack of respect behind the scenes. I am ashamed to admit that I ever worked for Cornerstone.
There focus is on the sports program! Do not send your child to this school, you will soon regret it.
I am a parent of a first grader at cornerstone. We have been there since pre-k. There have been a lot of changes. The teachers are more concerned with behavior than academics this year
Good students and teachers with small class sizes. Overall a good experience, but you may have to deal with a bunch of politics.
