As for the Middle School, the teachers appear to be on an "academic schedule" and do not have much time to help those students who are struggling. The tutor was not available until October. No bullying policy at school and bullies are not punished when the principal is informed. I use to love this school but have been very disappointed the last few years. My student feels beaten down and depressed over the lack of academic assistance and constant bullying.
I have a son who is in middle school who has attended since he was in K-4 and a daughter in 6th grade that has attended since Kindergarten and there are not enough words to explain my level of peace that my kids are going to this school. I know that I know that I know that I know (to infinity) that my kids are in the safest most academically minded schools with values that I know make the Lord smile with pride. The staff are second to none and the atmosphere of excellence is beyond explanation.
In one of the reviews, the person noted that Bible Center School is not accredited. The preschool, elementary school, and middle school have completed the rigorous process of accreditation and all three are now fully accredited by A.C.S.I., an outside accrediting agency.
I have my granddaughter in BCCS. Although the school is not accredited and the teachers are not State certified, the school is academically ahead of the public school in the area. In addition the school teaches compassion, manners and consideration unlike the public schools. The teachers truly care about you child.
The academics at BCCS are outstanding. There are a variety of extracurricular activities that are offered with highly qualified teachers/instructors. There is plenty of opportunities for parental involvement to be a part of your child's daily experience. We are so thankful for BCCS. We thank God everyday that that is where are kids are spending their day. Teachers and Staff that love the Lord and reinforce what the kids are learing at home - That's a number one priorty for us and what we get from Bible Center.
Bible Center is, hands down, (imho) the best elementary school in the Charleston area. Our daughter has gone there since pre-K and was reading happily before she started Kindergarden. Our son transferred there this year and, while we expected trouble adjusting, he was taken in wholeheartedly by the other students and loves it. The teachers are that exceptional mix of intellect, heart-felt caring, and plain old fun. This excellence comes from the top - Mr. Reynolds is a wonderful principal and his assistant, Mrs. Keefer, knows absolutely everything going on. This is a school where the kids learn and are also loved for who they are.
