North Florida Christian School Reviews
Just my opinions
This school definitely DOES not teach above grade level...of course there are children who are more advanced than others...but this is not a school who caters to different levels of learning in one classroom. Like the post below me stated...these children are being given worksheet after worksheet with hardly no hands-on learning...manipulatives are paid for with books and rarely used... Thu are similar to public schools in the sense that the teachers don't really teach, buy have the children regurgitate information...the level of security is very high...which can be frustrating BC sometimes you have to find ways to get into the school to get your children BC every single door and gate in locked and there is no employee or administrator to be found...personally, I feel the biggest problem with this school is that many of the lower school teachers only teach from the textbooks and worksheets...and can not answer a question about what they are teaching without referring to the curriculum..,I believe that teachers should know enough about what they are teaching to explain and answer questions from children and parents...an if you're sending your child their BC you believe it will be a safer place with limited bullying, save your money and send your child somewhere else...their anti-bullying policy is a joke...I am actually shocked at the levels of bullying and behaviors that I have seen at this school. They mainly acknowledge physical bullying...they don't address mental or emotional bullying...instead they will encourage the child to "turn the other cheek". When that child gets pushed to their limits and lashes out, that child is punished...the mental, emotional bully is never even acknowledged. Just save your money and send your child somewhere else.
The school USED to be a year ahead of public schools here. Not anymore. The new curriculum is dumbed down. Looking through my child's math book, they skipped entire chapters. When asked about this, my child said the teacher told them they "didn't need to know that." The teacher confirmed this! I paid for a book of paper manipulatives that they never even used. Their new school tested them for class placement and they are missing key building blocks of knowledge, especially in math! Get wise and start paying attention to what your child brings home....which is next to nothing!
The PreK and Elementary program is usually a year or more ahead of where our local public school is. Security is also tighter.
