My daughter attended k4 this year and has learned quite a bit. She knows all letters, letter sounds and has started to put words together to read. She also has better penmanship than I do. They are very strict, which is actually a good thing in my book. The only negative thing I have to say is that the curriculum is a little repetitive (coloring and writing sheets) but it has helped my daughter learn so it must work. Great staff, great school and affordable.

Strict rules. Christian thinking that defers from the BAPTIST's doctrine teaching is not tolerated. Listening to the radio " Spirit 105.3" is condemned. Math in high school is behind public school curriculum. Nevertheless education from kindergarten till six grade is good.

My eldest one is attending the school now. The school is good - my kid is getting education that far exceeds of what is taught at public schools. The Christian aspect is also very appealing to me. I have noticed that school stresses more on humanities rather on science, but it is just my opinion. Overall, I am happy with this school.

I attended CVBS for 10 years, and I am thankful for the strong Christian foundation it has given me. My parents put me in this school for its standard of education and discipline. The teachers care for their students, and they are committed to giving them a good education as well as teaching them to be stronger Christians. CVBS may have limited options for the extra curricular activities compared to public schools, but what they do have is still great, and the students enjoy it. I came to know the Lord while attending this school, and today, I desire that God will use my life for His glory wherever He decides to lead me. This school not only equipped me with a strong academic foundation in preparation for the "real world" but also taught me Christian values that I will use for the rest of my life.

My son has been going to this school for 9 years. The students have more respect for adults and other children then most kids in public schools. His education is top notch. I have have gotten to know all the teachers over the years and i'm very impressed with their caring and wanting to see all the children succeed. I have gone on lots of field trips and have heard time and again " What wonderful and well behaved group of kids." I'm very greatful to have my son in this school.

CVBS is a great school for my child. The teachers really care about the student's and take the extra time to be more involved with them unlike my experience with public schools. They teach good christian values that's certainly missing from todays schools. Overall I will definitely continue to have my children here and recommend this school to anybody.

As with every medium of this type, there are always those who do not represent themselves and their comments honestly. I came across these comments looking at Google Maps and can personally attest to the fact that these comments are at best unfounded and at worst out and out lies. The school has never closed down or been closed down for any reason since it has been opened and the cost is one of the lowest for private education in the area. I will not address the comments in a public forum as to the idea that the teachers here are only in it for the money. I will say this. I took a pay cut and increased the number of hours I worked coming here because I am dedicated to Christian education (as are all of our teachers here). As Pastor Fricks said, our test scores and testimony of our students speak for themselves. I invite those that continue to make these comments to prove their unfounded remarks or recant these false ones. Mr. Rick Jones, Registrar and Teacher CVBS.

This school is terrible! The teachers only care about how much money they get and not the student's education. In my opinion this school is a big waste of money. This school had to shut down a couple times this past few years and the school is very unhygienic. Beware of this school and do not send your children here!

I am disappointed to see two negative reviews. Unfortunately, contact information is not included in the reviews, so I cannot communicate with these individuals. I would like to give the opportunity to share concerns with me directly. Statements made in these reviews are contrary to my observations and are also contrary to communications received from current students, former students, and their parents. If we did do anything that caused concern, or did not do something some felt should have done, we would like know. I am always eager to follow the Biblical pattern for dealing with issues and find it disturbing to leave a situation such as this unresolved. I would like to point out that both the results achieved by our students in standardized achievement tests, and the testimonies of the lives of our students contradict the remarks in the negative reviews.

Do NOT send your children to this school . I am a student who has gone there for quite a long time and there is nothing christian about it , the teachers care little about your education , and are more focused on how much money they earn. Its not worth it.

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.
