It’s a family there, because there are not too many people. The teachers give one on one help and will slow down to help someone, if need be, and they won’t be left behind. I have received the best education.
The education quality is subpar. The teachers and staff care way too much about arbitrary rules and have ridiculous penalties. Was forced to pee in a cup for a nicotine test my senior year. They violate students' privacy, police their social medias, and do not prepare them adequately for college.
This school is over all a good choice. I love the fact that the teachers genuinely care and invest in your future and life. This school allows you to get one on one help whenever you may need it which results in better learning. It is especially good to have structure such as uniforms and rules that are typically more strict than public schools. This prepares students for the future when they will have to adhere to the rules that are set by their workplace. One of the main things I would change about this school is adding the opportunity to take AP classes. Although the typical diploma received is considered college prep, there are no AP classes available. Additionally, the teachers sometimes invade into students lives a little too much, but this is usually avoidable.
I've been attending Central Christian School for 6 years now and I really enjoy it. I feel prepared for college and ready to take on the world. I wish there were more challenging courses aside from dual-enrollment, but it is nice that they offer that. Athletics are prominent if you are interested in that. I wish there was more diversity and clubs.
Central Christian School has great food, academics, and sports. But because it is a christian school there is little diversity in anything and people can be quite judgmental at times, but for the most part the students and teacher are very nice and fun to be around. My overall experience has been pretty great so far.
A great school that teaches students about God through academics. The teachers truly care about you and are willing to help with pretty much anything you need.
I love the school and its teachers, but there are some small things that could be different. Overall, I wouldn't have wanted to attend any other school.
The principal is very nice and caring yet stern when he needs to be. He tries to find alternative options to expulsion such as community service, this way you keep the student in a christian environment. We all must sign a student handbook which states that we agree to the rules and guidelines stated there. There are things in the handbook such as uniform rules, grading standards, and a promise to always post things on social media that will uplift others and reflect well on our character.
We have sports: Volleyball, Soccer, girls and boys Basketball, Cheerleading, Softball, Baseball, and Running Club. We have SGA(Student Government Association), FCA(Fellowship of Christian Athletes), an Outreach Club and a Welcoming Committee.
The academics are great. There aren't two many AP classes. You have options for different classes and courses. They also offer different diplomas.
The school is in a continuing state of expansion. They have been upgrading the school and now have better bathrooms and classrooms. The school has been getting better every day.
There isn't really a school nurse, but they do have a good first aid and health safety system. Most care is given by coaches who have some knowledge in simple health care. There is always something they can give you or do for you. We really don't get any bomb threats or shootings but the school does have a pre-planned escape route for natural disasters and is able to lock down the school in case of a gunman.
Even though it is a Christian school, they welcome all students. There are students there from Haiti, Mexico, and all over the United States. The teachers always love to teach us of different cultures and religions. There are 'cliques', but in the end it doesn't matter because everyone becomes friends. The 'cliques' end up more like little groups just to talk about common interests and never exclude people.
The school does a good job of maintaining policies in a fair way. They have some rules that are a little strict, but in the end most of them are understandable. If a student has an issue with a rule or policy, the staff will take the time to talk to you and try to solve the problem. The S.G.A was able to change a few rules while I was in school.
There are quite a few things to do after school. There could be more though. The school lacks in supervisors for activities otherwise, they would most definitely offer more. The activities they have, provide a safe places for students who need to stay after school or need something to.
The sports teams are always very into their sport and determined to do their best. Coaches do a good job of making exercising fun and do things that everyone can be involved in. The students do a great job of supporting the teams and going to games. They have almost all of the common sports and are looking into growing the variety.
Over the four years at my school, they found new and better tasting foods. The lunch room workers were very eager to know what the students liked and disliked. They stopped making some of the nastier lunches that no one wanted. They also tried to find healthier options as we started to get new students with health problems and certain allergies.
