This is the best school I have ever been involved in. Dayspring is a breath of fresh air compared to other Christian schools. The academics are phenomenal (AP classes abound at the high school level), there are plenty of extracurricular activities to be involved in, and the students are great! Students benefit from the smaller class sizes and amazing, self-less, professional teaching staff who have a good balance between nurturing and disciplining. The consistent, compassionate leadership of the administration creates an environment where teachers, students and parents can feel free to communicate their concerns. My kids have really blossomed and grown here; it wouldn't have been possible anywhere else.

Have been fairly pleased overall but would like to see more focus on Christian character and Biblical leadership. Academics have been good for the most part.

Dayspring is a blessed school. They have such a great faculty, a great group of involved parents and even more awesome students. The academics are outstanding, and I truly feel that the teachers love the students and show them God's love every day. I would highly recommend them to anyone interested in placing their child in a Christian school in the NRV.

Dayspring is a great school! The academic standards are high and the quality of education is one of the best in the area. The school is growing not only in enrollment but in quality and number of classes offered. Athletics are excellent. Graduates have been accepted into the colleges of their choice, some with a full ride. Tuition is very reasonable and financial assistance is available. Great option for those seeking a great Christian school for their children.

Excellent school with very dedicated staff. Our 2 girls are in AP classes and rate in top 5% of nation from PSAT and stanford tests.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
