We have found this school very helpful to our children's education. We are thankful for the willingness of the teachers to work with our children. We very much appreciate the Biblical aspect of the education. We would recommend this school to anyone!

I'm a grandma of a fourth grader and I've never walked into a school where you see the older students helping younger kids get their coats on or let them go first. This school has a true Christian spirit and will not allow unruly students to take over classrooms. They work with the children to bring out the best in each one, ALL while showing God's love and nurture. I've never seen any child belittled or talked disrespectfully to. I thank God that they are the vehicle and help in bringing up children who are truthful, respectful, confident in themselves and most of all loving to others.

There are teachers at this school that are Christians and teachers and staff that say they are Christians. But the over all values of this school are lower than the public schools when it comes to kindness and caring for students who need it most. I pray that someday they will stop patting themselves on the back and really, really see how mean spirited they are! The school is losing students and somehow they refuse to see why.

Many of the staff are christians.They use a christian curuculum. But if your child is not a 'cookie cutter' person they WILL throw them out. They do lie about this. I'm sure of it because they lied to me, twice, and I wont send children to a school I can't trust.

I am a christian parent who currently has a student in the fourth grade and loves this school, not only do they encourage their students to strive for excellence spiritually as well as academically, they incorporate a biblical cirriculum as well. Administration to the faculty, they know what they are doing it is nice to actually get quality education for once, although it does cost more than a public school you definitely get what you are paying for. Plus all grades scores, the schools offer are at least one to two years above the national average and if that doesnt grab your attention...how about this the graduation rate is 99% the only reason it isnt 100% is because the 1% moves or transfers to other schools. 80% of those HS graduates go on to higher learning the other graduates enlist in the military.

RCCS is an excellent alternative to secular education. The administration constantly reviews the schools academic, spiritual and social well being striving to be the private school of choice. The school tries to keep tuition down while maintaining a quality staff by involving parents and friends to be involved in maintaing the physical structure of both campuses where their professional skills are needed most along with a variety of fund raisers to fit each individual talents.

Excellent school! We have had 3 or our children graduate from RCCS and all have done very well at the next level. Quality teachers, challenging curriculum, and a strong emphasis on spiritual formation.

Rock County Christian School was just what we had been looking for. Our three sons had previously been homeschooled and we wanted a small school with caring staff members who would extend the values that we taught at home into the classroom. We found that at RCCS. The academics are challenging, sports are competitive and the Christian atmosphere has been wonderful. Check out RCCS. I don't think you will be disappointed!

Rock County Christian School has been a part of our family for the past 9 years. We have found the academics to be outstanding, the family atmosphere to be an incredible blessing and the Christian character and leadership to be top notch. I would highly recommend RCCS to every Christian family! The mission statement states that the school will partner with families and churches to equip students to THRIVE, and I am thankful for how well they live up to this!

We just moved to the area and I had to move my daughter from another Christian school in Illinois to RCC. If these parents think that tuition is 'sky high' here, they should try in IL! The tuition is doable, the teachers are wonderful, the staff have bent over backwards to help us, and the kids are just amazing - my daughter has made freinds almost immediately; the kids could not wait to get her in class and welcome her to our new home town! This has been an overall great experience. One last thing; the school my daughter came from in IL had very high standards of education, RCC has kept right up with it. So, a sound Christian atmosphere, great teachers, great curriculum and standards, and freinds - what else can I ask for?

RCCS has Godly principles, however they are often not enforced or taught. Many of the children are mean and gossipy and niether the administration or teachers correct these attitudes. The school is very secretive when it comes to the 'going ons' of the school, and usually leaves the parents in the dark. The main goal of the school seems to be all about the money and tuition, which by the ways goes up every year but the quality seems to continue to go down.

My child has attended this school since kindergarten. I have always been pleased with the cooperation of teachers to fit my child's learning needs. This past year has been BAD, poor communication on the teachers and administrations part on problems that are occurring with my child at school. I have tried several times to ask and get information but have been made to feel like a bother. As stated in previous reviews, tuition is VERY high and get higher each year. I feel that staff need to be more open and attentive to parents concerns.

Our son just completed his first year at RCCS Beloit campus. We have seen our son grow spiritually. It is wonderful to have Christian teachers showing their love of God in the way they work, teach, and live. RCCS's staff, and students have been such a blessing. We look forward to the next school year!

My kids enjoy their school! The teachers are accessible and professional. I am thoroughly confident they will be prepared for any college experience. The student atmosphere has helped my kids feel accepted and secure about themselves just the way they are instead of trying to be the 'popular' way. There are enough extra curricular activites to enhance their school experience. I don't know what I would do without this school for my kids.

We have been involved in RCCS for many years. All four of our children have graduated from this school and have been blessed by the instruction and Christian perspective they were given through their education there. All are serving the Lord in a variety of capcities, but all have benefited from their training at RCCS. The cost tuition is minimal when you consider the benefits. He heartily endorse RCCS.

My children attended this school for four years. I had to pull them out because I was very dissapointed in the low quality teachers, and all of the hidden costs. The school is in bad shape despite the very high tuition costs. There are no computers, and the covers are falling right off of the books. The administration at this school needs an overhaul. I paid the sky high tuition for my 3 children to attend (what I thought was)a quality school for 4 years, but my kids are now back in public school far behind academically. Don't make the same mistake I did. I did a diservice to my children.

My child is currently attending Rock County Christian. I'm not happy with how this school is run. I've found that there is no minimum qualifications needed to teach at the school. My child has come home many times wondering why the teacher assigns things that the teacher herself can't figure out. I end up spending many hours each night after I get home from work trying to teach her things that the school should be able to teach her. It's rediculous! I'm in the process of trying to find a different school for her. Another big concern at this school is bullying. I have spoken many times to the teachers and the principle about my daughter being bullied, but nothing is ever done. They are afraid to talk to the parents because they're afraid of losing money if the parents of the bullies leave. This should not be happening!
