School Reviews

SCS provides an enriching environment for learning and developing Christian character and growth. Dedicated teachers and staff, small class sizes, parent involvement, a family atmosphere--are just a few of the things we love. Our children are challenged, encouraged, and nurtured and love attending SCS.
