It is important that our children become the individuals God wants them to be and to receive a rigorous, competitive education. At BCS, our children are challenged, nurtured, encouraged and supported to be the best whole person possible. The teachers and leaders of the school have a clear vision of the spiritual and academic paths our children are taking. We love the school community and can t say enough about the teaching excellence. Most importantly, our children are happy, thriving, learning and excited to go to school. We are blessed to be a part of BCS.

This is our sixth year at Bellevue Christian School, and we can't say enough positive things about it. We have two kids, and we've been very pleased with every teacher they've had--both in preschool and elementary school. The school "meets children where they are academically," so the more advanced students are given extra challenges while the less advanced are given extra high-quality attention. Teaching from a Christian world view is a top priority, and the hearts of the children are striking at BCS given that they are taught to love and encourage one another as God asks us to do. It truly is a supportive and loving environment. BCS commits to finding each child's gift in order to nurture that and help the children be who God intended them to be. This school is a special place with a tight community of solid supportive families, which even goes so far as to offer regular parenting classes and study groups. With the high quality of college preparatory courses taught from a Christian perspective, we have every intention of keeping our children at BCS all the way through high school.

I have nothing but positive things to say about our school. I love that the focus of their education is to encourage the growth of my children's character and help them discover and follow the purpose God has for them, even at a young age. Their teachers have been kind and loving, supporting them both in class and in outside activities. The leadership of the school knows my children by name and makes a concerted effort to know and understand them. They encourage my children to love one another, seek God, give back to their community and pursue education with enthusiasm. I would HIGHLY recommend this school to anyone seeking a Christian education.

My children attended the Woodinville campus. One teacher in particular was very rude, she said my son was not well liked and a parent asked to keep their child away from my son, I will never forget the pain I felt. I know she spoke the same way to my son. We left the school and started attending a 5 star public school in the area, it was the best decision ever! After the first week at his new school, my child said, "mom, they act more like christians at this school than they did at the christian school" Well, that says it all.

Stay way. It's an awful place run by incompetent administrators. They do nothing about bullying. They divulge private medical information illegally. They won't discipline bad faculty behavior. If you love your child, do not subject them to this place.

As a parent we had 3 students attend this school from 7-12th grade. They received a fantastic christian education. I highly recommend that you check out this school if you are in the market for a new classroom experience. the teachers, staff and students are amazing. The curriculum is diverse and they have many class options to pick from. All of my children we VERY well prepared for college graduating in 4 years. They are now in the work force and speak highly of the education they received. I can see their children attending some day and become leaders for Christ like their parents. Check out their website for more information.

I graduated in 2002. My experience was very positive. The teachers are wonderful, encouraging and supportive and the students I attended with were the same. The small class sizes allow for getting to know fellow students and the teachers. I've heard stories of getting "lost" in big high schools with hundreds and hundreds of students. I did not feel remotely this way at BCS. Many of my closest friends today attended with me.

We have three children that attended BCS since preschool. We love BCS and wouldn't send them anywhere else. The teachers truly deeply care about each child and go beyond to help each child succeed. Our children all had different academic needs, from needing extra help to needing more challenging work, and all their needs were met. Plenty of extracurricular activities for them all to find their niche. We love that they graduated with best friends since kindergarden. Teachers are so great about communicating with parents! BCS feels like a big family of students, parents and teachers - a wonderful learning environment for the children and a great community to be a part of.

Wonderful school, my son is new to school for High School and was hesistent to change schools, but Bellevuel Christian had more to offer in meeting his needs. Overall, exceeded expectations from student and parents perspective.

It is so clear that the teachers care deeply about the students, not only their academic performance, but also their characters, their faith, and their contribution to the world we live in.

Bellevue Christian School is an awesome school where every child is highly valued and welcomed. The community of teachers, parents and students makes the school a vibrant place to learn and grow. Students who need a challenge are not disappointed, and students that struggle don't get left behind. All the while, the hearts of our students grow in compassion toward each other and toward the world we live in. Kudos!

My kids attended this school from K-12. They received an excellent education that was taught with a Christian world viewpoint. My kids say the best thing about the school is the relationships they had with their teachers who care and mentored them. They are a progressive school that teaches kids to ask questions. Even though it isn't a prepatory school 90% or more go on to college - even ivy league schools. This is amazing because they even welcome kids were learning difficulties. One of my kids is dyslectic so he received one on one therapy as an elective. Their program is based on brain research and it allowed my son to graduate find success in college. I know my kids will have life long friendhips with classmates and teachers. What more could a parent want!

BCS is an amazing school. We had 3 children that attended and all got a great eduction and were very well prepared for college. The Athletics, Programs, Culture and People were outstanding in every way. Dollar for dollar this was the best investment that we ever made. We continue to support this school to this day and are very proud to have been BCS parents ! What a blessing it is to the community! A gift from God for sure !

Great school! I attended BCS from 5th-12th grade and can't speak highly enough about the quality of education. The faculty care about each student, and I felt more than prepared to enter college, and ultimately the workplace!

bad curriculums, school to small, inconvenient location for many. definately not worth the money when a public school is clearly just as good, if not better.

Our son attended Bellevue Christian from first grade through high school. We were extremely pleased with the academic, social, and spiritual envoirnment. We were impressed with the individual attention he received. He wanted to take advanced (AP)classes that were not offered and a teacher would work with him individually so he could take the exam. Some of his HS classes had just a handful of students - these students wanted a class and the school didn't cancel it just because the enrollment wasn't high enough. Academically it was excellent. We never had a bad teacher in our 12 years there. He had a great group of friends when he graduated - many of whom had been his friends since first grade. Extra-curicular activities were abundant for a school of this size.The teachers were/are committed Christians who lived their faith. We could not have been more pleased with our son's education
