School Reviews

I am a very satisfied parent of three children who have attended Youth Christian School for many years. Two have graduated and proceeded on to a higher education at University's here in Georgia. My youngest child is still attending YCS going into the 5th grade. The quality of academic programs, teachers and facilities are outstanding. The school has a wonderful music program and has Christmas and spring programs that excel like none other. My son has played football and basketball, and my two daughters have played basketball and cheered for YCS. All of the sports programs are competitive and challenges their athletes to strive to do their best. Each one of my children have done outstanding in their state wide testing exceeding much higher than their grade levels. I must say that as I encourage on my end the credit for their academic success comes from Youth Christian School.
