My kid is attending school as an international student. Being able to go to class in person is tremendously helpful for his adjustment to new environment. It's beyond belief some at most public school put their interests before children whom they claim they care so much about. The school managed pandemic very well as so far there are only a handful infections from outside the school (4 in 8 months). I'm grateful there still exists schools that focus on education. This is definitely one.

I enrolled my son at SCS during this school year. We, as a family, had been at another local private school for decades and it was hard to finally admit that my son was not getting a good education. I was hesitant but we were both ready. I can confirm that in the first 3 days at SCS, my son was so incredibly happy again and actually learning a tough curriculum and an added benefit is how amazing the teachers and staff are to parents as well as the kids. Such a difference in professionalism that I'm just mad at myself for not making the switch sooner. If you're on the fence, don't hesitate.

We have had a great experience with SCS. This was our first year with SCS and our children are enjoying the school year. The staff is very friendly, helpful and accommodating. The teachers for both of our boys are wonderful and give feedback on a regular basis.

My daugther started in Preschool and was home 6 months last year due to Covid. She asked to go back and I started her part time but she quickly picked up and wanted to attend full time. It was very easy to transition her back and the teachers including teacher aid are wonderful in keeping the children safe, disciplined and making them feel loved which is critical.Kudos Schaumburg Christian for providing my child with a safe, reiligious, strong educational environment where she is thriving. I am blessed to have this school for my daugther and our community.

My daughter transferred from a huge public school to this smaller, private school. It was the best decision we made. She is in an environment that shares God`s word but is also exhibited through the staff and students. Covid was hard enough but she was able to still acclimate and make friends. Education was not compromised and she was able to have have a positive experience.

SCS is one of the best Private schools. My son loves to go to SCS. The teachers have helped my son to gain confidence both academically and emotionally. The teachers truly care about their students and provide extra help on a regular basis if needed. The staff is extremely helpful to gain personable relationship that can last forever. I have already recommended SCS to several of my friends. Thanks SCS.

Our kids are excited about school again! The difference is measurable and apparent everywhere we look. Academic rigor, support from staff, behavior expectations, sense of community...the list goes on. We got them in at 2nd and 4th grade and my only regret is not enrolling them from the start. And a huge plus...there are more after school opportunities (art, music, sports, etc.) than there are days in the week.

Rating 5 out of 5 Schaumburg Christian is an amazing school. The education our daughter is receiving is top-notch. And we are so thankful for the teachers and the staff. It feels like a family. I don`t think we would feel the same in the public school setting. We have been extremely happy at SCS for the past 3 years, and we are looking forward to many years ahead!

SCS offers quality education in a safe and Christian environment. It is like a second home to my kids since they have been there from 3 until teen. The teachers and staffs are caring. When I spoke to teachers, staffs or nurses I can feel that they really know each student.

SCS has been a Godsend for our family. Our two girls absolutely love their teachers and the one-on-one attention that they get. The curriculum, including extra-curricular activities, is setting them up to have a heart for God first, and to be accountable and responsible citizens. May the Lord continue to lead and direct staff, teachers, and administration .

My daughter has been attending SCS for 7 years. The staff and faculty have provided not only an outstanding education, but equally important a safe community that supports her overall personal development: athletically, vocationally, muscially, artistically and spiritually.

I am thankful for the environment at SCS for our 3 kids! The teachers and staff don`t just focus on academics, but also focus on the entirety of a person. SCS also encourages the values we work on instilling in our children at home. It`s a blessing to have SCS as a support system in producing well rounded citizens who will hopefully contribute to society as they grow! Thank you, SCS!

Schaumburg Christian has served our family for 15 years and we have been very happy with the curriculum, the teachers, the staff and the Biblical viewpoint in everything they have learned. Not only are the academics very well rounded, but also the music programs, which have been staffed by talented and Christian teachers who care about their students. The athletic directors and coaches have also been a great blessing to our family as well and our children have benefited greatly from being involved in sports teams at SCS. The school cares about each individual student and seeks to help them not only in their academics, but also in their spiritual lives and in nurturing and helping them to grow in all areas of life.

Schaumburg Christian School is a great school. The staff is very welcoming and always ready to assist the students and parents. The teachers are great and go above and beyond to make sure the students understand everything they teach. They care about the well being of each student. Before the start of class my 7the grade`s teacher asks each student how they are doing. The curriculum is great and it`s the perfect place for kids to learn core ethical values. The foundation the students build up in pre-3 and pre-k help them excel through every class they go through. I have two kids here and they love it so much.

My family is pleased with this school: very wonderful and smart and polite teachers and all the school staff. Good curriculum. My daughter enjoys going to school and, after school, shares her impressions and knowledg. The school has a variety of after-school activities such as sports, music, and art class. I recommend our school to everyone.

My wife, myself, and my kids absolutely love SCS. The teachers care about the students beyond just the school day and school year. We get specific feedback from the teachers for each of our kids. The curriculum is challenging but fair; my second grader is learning square roots, and my kindergartner is reading full sentences. We have had several friends move their kids over to SCS, and they too are extremely satisfied.

After doing some research on schools around our area, Christian or non-Christian school, we decided to send our 3 kids to Schaumburg Christian School. 12 years later, we are glad we made that decision. Our boys love the school. The academics, arts, and values learned from SCS have set our children up for great college options and several scholarships offered to them. I would recommend SCS to anyone looking for a great education for their children.

My children love this school. They have joined this school since Pre-K and they love their school. There was one point that I think we can save $ by sending them to public school instead but after hearing, I said that my daughter said...mom if I have enough in my savings can I use that $ to pay the tuition so that I can continue at SCS.

SCS is an excellent school! The academics are rigorous, the teachers are well equipped, and the atmosphere is safe, friendly, and exemplifies the love of God. I have a third-grade student, a kindergarten student, and we`ve just enrolled our youngest child in the K3 program. I`m looking forward to many years of character building in the lives of my children at Schaumburg Christian school!

SCS offers quality education in a safe and Christian environment. Compared to other private schools(Christian and nonchristian) in the area, the price is very affordable for the type of education they provide. Will recommend it to any parent who wants the best for their children at a very affordable price.

SCS thus far has offered my child the education that I could have only dreamed of growing up. SCS educators seems to concentrate on the whole person and how to strengthen society instead of just fitting in. My daughter thrives in SCS, something she did not do in the public forum. Thank you!
