School Reviews

My son started at CCS this year and we love it! The teachers are loving and kind and truly there for the kids. Each week I get positive feedback from his teacher about how he is doing, they keep in contact with you and let you know how your child is doing. I love hearing about the things he is learning through songs and different movements. Most of all I love that I have peace about my son being there, I do not have to worry about his safety nor the intentions of the teachers that work with him.

My children have been at Cornerstone Christian Schools for their entire academic career. It is their home away from home. They each have thoroughly enjoyed their experiences thus far. It is a very well-rounded atmosphere. The children are challenged academically, spiritually, and athletically. I could not imagine have them anywhere else.

My son began K4 at the Kinder Campus in Stone Oak this school year. So far, we love it! He matured so much in the first quarter. He''s an emotional kid, but he quickly learned to control his meltdowns. We love his teacher. She is patient, loving and kind. She believes in differentiated instruction so she takes time with each student to teach them at their own level. Every day, the students do math, reading, technology, science, Bible, recess, PE and a special (Spanish, art, music or library). I really can''t say enough good things.

My chidren have been at Cornerstone Christian Schools for the last three years. Overall, we have been pleased. While they already have a good academic program, they are continually striving to improve. Both of my children have to work hard to continue to do well in their studies. Two of the things that my family truly appreciates are the caring teachers/staff and the way the school holistically incorporates Biblical principles throughout all areas. While no place is perfect, we definitely have had a good experience here at Cornerstone Christian Schools.

This is a fantastic school with administrators and faculty that are well-educated, progressive, patient and loving. The school emphasizes science, technology, engineering, art and math. They have 100% college acceptance, Bible-based teachings, and are constantly adding new and creatice teaching methods. I wasn't pleased when I switched from public school to CCS, but in retrospect there was no better school I could have attended.
