School Reviews

Our family has been a part of Coastal Christian for over 10 years. This school has provided so many opportunities for growth both inside and outside of the classroom. I love that my son has the opportunity to attend a school that values small class sizes and experiential learning, and places little emphasis on standardized testing. My son has been able to be active in sports and other activities without the burden of excessive homework each evening. A small school environment has been the perfect fit for us and we truly feel as if we are part of a caring family at Coastal.
