My daughter attended Jupiter Christian School for three years when we moved down to Florida from South Carolina because of my husbands job. She was very happy there, made friends and was extremely sad to leave and go back. Academically the school did wonders for our daughter and she is in all available honors classes at her old school. She also took to soccer which she had not even liked before and was pleased to represent the school. They may not have all the amenities of a larger school but we found it suited our needs at the time and we would have no problem recommending the school to any one. Long term or short. Thank you for caring JCS.

We have 2 boys and a girl attending JCS.Since Dr Jim Coleman took over as President he has started implementing a better ( we feel) focus on academia. He has also managed to bring in better qualified tutors while maintaining the Christian values we hold so dear. Dr Coleman is certainly raising the bar here! I would have no problem recommending Jupiter Christian School to anyone.
