Any class will have children at different levels. Rather than slow down the whole class however Mrs Rasmussen has tailored the curriculum for each student so each can have their own pace and accomplishments. And has even encouraged the more advanced students to help the others. I am very impressed.
All of my son's teachers have been great, in particular his current teacher Mrs. Rasmussen has worked with him to keep him interested and motivated, tailoring his learning to him while also helping other students. She recognizes that each student learns differently and does a great job of working with them each. Which is possible because of the small classes (his class is about a dozen students)
My son has been going here for four years now and this school is nothing short of amazing. The small class size and dedicated, caring teaching staff means every child gets the individual attention they need.
And even though it is a small school, they have great extracurricular programs, like a robotics team, track team, and soccer.
I'm very concerned about the frequent faculty changes that have taken place since my child has been enrolled, and we've only been with this school for one year! Some of the classes are understaffed, enrollment seems to be on the decline, and I don't feel that the academics are competitive, especially considering the not-cheap tuition rates. For the sake of my child's friendships, I will stay for one more year, but I am actively looking for another school for my family.
Valley Christian is a wonderful school. I went there when I was young, and now my daughter is attending VCS. She is learning quickly, and I just love to hear her say the memory verses. I have been impressed with the teachers--very responsive to my questions. And they love the kids so much.
I can't say enough good things about our school. Yeah, it costs money to send your kid to private school. But we consider it worth every cent. The teachers and staff are wonderful. The principal, Gloria Butz, is amazing on a personal and a professional level. Grants are used on improving learning and technologies and 100% of the money is reinvested in the children. Smaller class size allows your child one on one time with the teachers. Above all, God is the center of life here and His message is translated loud and clear to the students and their families. We are a perfect fit at this school and we plan to stay for the long haul.
