Woodcrest Christian School Reviews
Rating 4.23 out of 5 155 reviews
My favorite aspect of Woodcrest Christian High School is the community that we have built here. Everyone is there to help you and you never have to go through the high school experience alone because there are great leaders and alumni that are all around campus that are always willing to help and are always there for you whenever you need them.
I have been in the Woodcrest school system for 13 years. My experience has been almost exclusively positive. Woodcrest is academically strenuous and has high tuition rates, but the effort it takes to go to this school is certainly worth it. I have enjoyed a strong community, a great sports program, and excellent religious education while attending Woodcrest.
The level of academic expectations at this school are high, and the teachers are prepared to bring all students, of various abilities, up to the level of those standards. There are many opportunities for honors and AP classes. Extra curricular activities abound, and it's not difficult to start a new club or activity.
Lots of racist teachers and students at this school. Avoid it if you are a minority. Education is mediocre.
All the teachers are extremely qualified and knowledgeable. They are very personable and teach fun classes. The teachers make what might seem like a difficult college prep class enjoyable. The overall experience of the school is amazing and the campus is also beautiful.
The school staff are very friendly and have a good determination to get every student on track for not only school related academics but college or future plans. The academics are very challenging, so if a student is not able to keep up, it is not their fault, just that they are not ready for college based academics yet. The students are generally good but it varies on what grade they are in. The teachers are very concerned about all students grades and personal lives, they put a little more emphasis on students who struggle in theri classes
What I love about Woodcrest Christian is that it is a challenge. They are a college prep school so the classes are harder, and good for those who want to do well and excel. I also love how much the teachers care for the students they truly want them to do well. The final thing I love about Woodcrest Christian is that they have good strong Christ centered academics as well. Which personsly I believe are very important to be taught in schools.That is my opinion, based upon my faith.
Woodcrest Christian's greatest asset is its exceptional preparation of students for college. My brother, who was considered an "average" student at Woodcrest, excels at his four-year university now. On track to earn a Masters in Architecture, his preparation from his education at Woodcrest Christian High School displayed very accurately how he would perform in college, and their heavy emphasis on math and writing has set him up for success in his journey to higher education. The failures of the school as I see them now are in its lack of diversity and modernization. While a few exchange students from Asia attend, most local students are white, and students of color have experienced racism on campus. Additionally, the school takes very traditional stances in every aspect of campus life, including in the classroom. Chromebooks are the most advanced form of technology that the school uses, however this limitation does not prevent students from getting a great education.
Woodcrest Christian School is a very excellent school if you are looking for a smaller college prep school, with teachers that are dedicated to help you grow academically and spiritually. As a college prep school the academics are more rigorous when compared to public schools but the challenge will help you later on in college because you'll already be fluent in essay writing and have a more vivid vocabulary than other students entering college. There is also a good variety of available A.P classes that have allowed some students to enter college a year ahead.
I have attended Woodcrest Christian for all 13 years, and as I get ready to graduate, I realize how valuable this school has been. The teachers genuinely care about students, and take time outside of class to know us. They will gladly drop everything and help us, whether with school or a personal issue. There are almost endless ways to get involved, whether in a club, on our fantastic athletic teams, our renowned drama department, or an international spring break missions trip! The Christian influence is priceless and has shaped who I am as a person. But, the students definitely don’t fit the “weird private school kid” stereotype! We are a student body of diverse interests, character traits, talents and gifts, and perspectives. I recommend that everyone sends their child here if they are able. Never once have I felt that I missed out on the “American public high school experience.”
Great place for students to grasp the importance of a good education, especially if they plan to attend college! The teachers are available to help in any way they can. I would recommend it!
It provides a great faith based environment college prep environment. Has a wide variety of classes you can take from performing arts to general education. It has many sports team to be apart of. You can start in Kindergarten and attend until 12th grade. It provides a safe campus and well mannered students.
I am a lifer at Woodcrest Christian which means that I have attended from Kindergarten through my senior year. Every teacher has truly cared about me. I feel extremely prepared for my next journey as a college student.
This is such a good school, wonderful school culture, school provides good learning environment , not only academically strong, but also teaches students good moral and principles. It is a right place for parents to send their children for good education.
This is a great school with academics that challenge students to grow! There are also many extracurricular opportunities for students to participate in, with an inclusive, fun environment. It is also a very safe gated campus. I would highly recommend applying for any ambitious students in the area!
I have a international student at Woodcrest, it’s a wonderful school with amazing staff. We are so blessed to have such a wonderful school teaching biblical principles in Riverside.
It was a good experience overall but there are definitely things they can work on. Academically I was well prepared for college but there a was a lot of work given that was just busy work and was not effective of students’ time.
