Racine Christian School was the perfect choice for us. Transitional Kindergarten, Christ-centered curriculum, exceptional teachers and staff and small/safe classes and hallways are just some of the many reasons we chose RCS. God has blessed this school and the children/families who attend.

I have to say parents, last year my daughter attended a public school in the racine unified school district and it was a disaster. They constantly called me at work saying my daughter was being disruptive to the class. Its funny because they year she is attending RCS and she has not once been in trouble or disruptive to anyone. RCS is the best choice I ever made and i would recommend this school to all parents who would like a successful education for their kids. They don't discriminate against your child if they are struggling in a certain area neither. The programs to help your tuition payments are a very good idea for parents who are attending school as well and not working as much. This school is 10 stars in my book. My daughter also wanted me to add that the kids are very nice and not bullies like the ones at her last school. Which that school had a big bully sign on the front of the school with a slash through it, they should have removed the slash in my opinion.

At this school, you have great teachers who really care about you, many chances to shine and learn more, and meet friends for life. We also learn and study the Bible. We grow in our faith and because of going here for going on nine years, I am very close to God.

Our son has attended here for three years, and we love it. The teachers are great, they really care about each child, the parents are very involved, and academics really matter.

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.
