As a parent, educator, and school psychologist, I have seen many schools in the area. TCS is hands-down the BEST school I have ever been a part of. My children are seen, loved, cared for, and educated in a way that is so incredibly intentional. TCS cares about students with learning "needs"- as well as those who are academically advanced. They truly give the best educational experience we've ever had. All the stars for this incredible school.

My son just started at the Christ school this year, in the TK program and we cannot be more thrilled! From everyone that we`ve dealt with from admissions to teachers, and assistants, to the beautiful new lunch program, and security, our expectations are consistently being exceeded! The communication and the family atmosphere make you feel at home, As a first-time parent at the school, It`s always scary and I can honestly say that making the step to enroll our son in this school has been the best decision for his academic future!

We could not have selected a better school to ground our children academically, socially and spiritually. NO school is perfect, but TCS comes close! Teachers love their students, students love their teachers; administration is supportive of both! Take a look and see what makes TCS special!

I love this school. The academics are wonderful and challenging. The teachers are knowledgeable and will respond back to you quickly. The extracurricular activities are good. The academic is second to one. We just love TCS. Our daughters are now so prepared when it comes to public speaking and have excelled so well in math and science.

The K-8 foundation our children received at The Christ School is bar-none. They were extremely well prepared for high school, rocked college and are now onto careers in medicine and law. Their foundation was set on Biblical principles that taught them who they are and whose they are. If you are thinking about The Christ School for your family ... Stop thinking and apply!
