Every teacher at this school is compassionate about their job and it shows! The love that they give every child is amazing and you can truly see in their actions that they love being here and love teaching.
We have had our child at Christ Community now for two years and I can honestly say we are beyond thrilled with our choice. Last year when we came the school was going through some transactions, but was praying for God to send a leader that would lead us forward. Our prayers were answered and we are so blessed to have Mr. Evans as our principal and leader! His experience of 20+ years in education speaks volumes, but his honest love for God, the staff and every child that walks through the door each day is truly amazing.
The one on one education in the classroom is crucial in the fundamental years and that's exactly what you are getting here at CCS from Pre-K thru 7th grade. They offer everything from Art, Music, PE, Spanish, Computer/Technology, Library and organized sports in a private school atmosphere all at an affordable price that you can't find anywhere else in our area.
Our family has been at Christ Community School for three years, and we continue to be very happy with the caliber of education and loving kindness our children receive. We actually left CCS for the 2015-16 school year. We thought we'd like a pre-k through 12th grade private school, but we returned after a year of disappointment. We cannot even compare the wonderful experience at CCS with the other school we attended.
Under the leadership of now Head of School Gerald Evans and the same excellent teachers CCS has had for years, our second grader and kindergartner are excelling in their studies at an advanced pace, while showing absolutely no stress--they love school again! The classrooms are well-managed and the expectations are developmentally appropriate. Our children are challenged exactly as much as they need to be. In addition to differentiated classroom instruction that targets each child at their level, the specials classes--music, art, Spanish, technology, library--help grow their whole brain! Weekly chapel and integrated biblical instruction nourishes their spirits. We look forward to our third child entering CCS in a couple of years, and the many years left they have to learn in this excellent environment.
Gerald Evans, the Head of School, was awarded Principal of the Year in Magnolia ISD during his time in leadership there. He retired and moved into private education, and he brought his gift of leadership with him.
I came to this school because a friend recommended it. She was driving her children 30 minutes to attend. She said of the teachers that they can see the God-given gifts in each child, and they help the children see them too. I completely agree!!
This school is amazing! It's the best kept secret in The Woodlands! Great teachers, dedicated staff, a vested Board, and a wonderful PTF. It's a very welcoming enviroment for parents and a place where my kids feel safe and are truely cared for. They have excelled academically without the stress of massive amounts of homework. The smaller class sizes allow for teaching at my child's pace and I have seen big improvements in their test scores. We love this school!
We love this school. We are vested parents who love the one on one attention our child receives. The Administration has worked with us this year when we found out our child had a learning disability. The teachers and the staff are amazing and truly doing God's work. The lady who is currently doing the tours is very knowledgeable and has a true passion for the school. Anytime I have question I feel comfortable asking. The PTF is very inviting and tries to make it easy for everyone to get involved. We will be here until our child ages out
The school was once one of the best in the woodlands, comparing academics and tuition cost, they let go of their best principal and since have not been stable. The school board is running the school made up of parents that are not academic professionals and the school is losing its spark, rigor and professionalism. Someone needs to stand up and demand that the board not be elected based upon long standing friendships and that they should create a governing board without personal interest, only allowing one or two parents to serve to balance and maintain professionalism and neutrality before the school ends up closing or suffering another terrible loss.
My child attended CCS for two years and enjoyed it very much. The teachers were great and overall it was a good experience. I would just suggest you review the enrollment and re-enrollment application carefully. This school is run like any other company or organization that values revenue. If you pay tuition or fees for the upcoming school year and change your mind about sending your child to this school, for whatever reason, you will not receive a refund. They collected more than $1,700 from me and kept it without hesitation when I dis-enrolled my child prior to the beginning of the new school year. I don’t think anyone should be expected to pay for services they will never receive but they didn’t see this as greed or unjust gain. Just because Christ is in the school’s name doesn’t mean you shouldn’t read the small print because his name doesn’t mean the same thing to everyone.
