Central Christian School Reviews

Central Christian School is a great Christian School. It has been around for over 50 years. It is a family not just a school.
I was not at central for very long, but I have enjoyed my time at central. I would not want to be a part of another school. There are definitely things I wish I could change, but the overall experience was great.
It’s an okay school. Their dress code is a little strict. The math teacher I had wasn’t that very good. My science and history teacher (he was the same teacher) wasn’t that very good at helping us actually learn. The teachers aren’t very good at actually watching the students because while I attended a lot of crazy stuff happened in the halls and in the class rooms. The good part about the school is that the teachers are nice for the most part and they aren’t that very strict often.
CCS is a great school! The teachers are great and love the students.One of their 5th graders went and won the state spelling bee! They have a loving family. I say a shout out to 3 special teachers. Mrs.McCurdy,Mr.Turner, and Mrs. McGraw. They make the school experience great to even the worst students. This is a gift to them. From one of Mrs, McGraw's 5th graders and a terrific third grader!
The teachers of high school deeply care about students and have shown nothing but endless love for me. I can't say how much Mrs. Newman has helped me and my family get through the stuff we have been through. The type of family you get from there is unbelievable. I have nothing but good words for the school and get endless love sent their way.
Everybody that is apart of the staff is there for you. They'll work with you individually if you need them to. The guidance is excellent! Wherever you need to go or whatever problems you may have, people dish out their greatest effort to help you. Dress code isn't too stressed. It is easy to follow not much gets in the way besides the colors you're allowed to wear.
The food is made with love and care, and it is made from scratch everyday.
New people are always able to come into the school and our wonderful head master gives a thorough tour and allows the applying student to meet other students and hang around them to get the feel of things.
The athletics at this school are fairly good. The settings and all not so much, but we've gotten a national champion in our league in football, and hope to bring one home in basketball.
The diversity of the student body helps break down certain barriers against any perception of "outsiders" at the school. We have a wide ethnic ratio and an even wider personality ratio. Everyone is mostly accepting of all ideologies and beliefs. As long as there are no issues with the students being fake or vacuous, they have no problems getting along and mingling properly.
The teaching staff is absolutely the best group I have ever come across. They are always approachable and understanding of any issues or questions the students have. Most, if not all of them were readily accessible outside of the classroom and willingly gave out their personal contact information for any questions or problems the students may encounter as they complete their assignments.
Most of our after-school opportunities were sports-based. All practices were held on weekdays after school. There was also an after-care program for children/teens who needed supervision between the time school let out and the time their parent could pick them up/
Most of the material is biased toward a Christian worldview, as it is a Christian organized school system. However, all teachers were open to discuss controversial topics with any students in the right mindset and circumstance.
There was not an abundance of readily available tutelage. Most students asked upperclassmen to tutor them in any subject they had difficulty with at school. Students will readily help anyone in need of academic assistance. The students are mostly welcoming and quite bright academically.
Very strict rules when it comes to dress code. All girls were required to wear either decent-length skirts or khaki/navy pants, paired with a polo shirt that bore a Heritage logo and any closed-toe shoes aside from tennis shoes. boys were required to wear khaki/navy slacks with a polo bearing the Heritage logo and closed-toe shoes aside from tennis shoes. Dress code was severely enforced and any violations were punished with detention, with the offender being forced to wear whatever uniform pieces were stored in the school office.
I hardly ever disliked any of my teachers here. They were always open to questions and suggestions and discussions, no matter how silly or serious. They tolerated no nonsense, but were still lenient as far as social interactions between students. The material was presented in an easy to comprehend manner and the majority of students (who actually tried) passed their classes with flying colors. An excellent staff altogether.
Most of the school's funds go toward renovating the older buildings, as it was built circa 1970. So naturally, the school's cafeteria gets the short end of the budget stick. Most of the food options are things that you buy prepackaged and/or frozen, like pizzas and hash cakes. Almost all of the break-foods are fried or grease-saturated beyond consumption. The lunches are normally prepared by hand, however, and are generally nutritious and wholesome.
