    DCCS is a great affordable private school option for your students! It offers a substantially higher learning experience than the public schools in the area. DCCS is a Christian school that offers a Godly worldview which is vital in today's society. Your students will experience smaller class sizes which offers individual attention from teachers and staff. The versatile curriculum specialized classes and personal relationships gained at this school are unmatched. I love the fact the name of Jesus is freely spoken and acted upon in this school. With greater enrollment God's Kingdom will grow and prosper. This is a great school please come check us out and join the DCCS family!

    Deer Creek has done amazing things for my children when it comes to learning and living life the way God wants us to live it. They teach at a high level and because of this my kids score well above average on standardized testing. I love being able to drop my kids off with the feeling that I know they are safe. Class time isn't spent on correcting behavior of disruptive kids because those kind of kids aren't at Deer Creek. Time is spent on learning. You don't have to worry about fights breaking out kids talking about in appropriate things or any of the other issues that you see in the public school system. The teachers are loved by their students and parents. Putting my children in Deer Creek is the best decision we made and I highly recommend it for anyone who is considering other schools to choose deer creek first.

    Deer Creek Christian School is one where a parent can have complete peace of mind each and every day. The students are happy friendly caring and kind. They directly reflect the environment cultivated by the dedicated teaching staff. Everyone at Deer Creek is like part of a family committed and involved with making it the best school it can be. My children are happy here receive a quality education and are in a positive uplifting environment. Not to mention the individualized instruction from the low student-teacher ratio. If you're considering DCCS come take a tour and you'll never look back!

    Deer Creek Christian School has been our son's school since preschool and he's now in 3rd grade. The teachers and administration strive on a daily basis to educate the whole student body with knowledge for today's world as well as surround them with examples of God's love.

    Deer Creek Christian School is a great school to send your children to! The teachers are wonderful and caring. Children come to school to learn and get the best education they can! Deer Creek provides that learning atmosphere! My girls went to Deer Creek from Pre-School through 8th grade and they were well prepared for High School! They went into Honors classes and were leaders at their school. This is what every parent wants for their children; to go to school to learn all that they can and not have to worry about the bad stuff that goes on in some schools. We need to encourage children to be the best they can and Deer Creek does that! If you want loving caring teachers and staff then this is the school for you!

    Simply the BEST OF THE BEST! The teacher/student ratio is very low! The academic scores are VERY high! I've 2 children (the first has been accepted to an Ivy League East Coast School with a Scholarship and the second child has a couple more years at DCCS.) This school completely prepared my older student for success in high school and life. They instill a deep foundation of education Christian values humanity along with friendships and a love of learning. My children LOVE THIS SCHOOL & SO DO MY SPOUSE AND I! It may cost more than a public education but it's the BEST INVESTMENT we've EVERY MADE!!! The adage "You get what you pay for" is never more apparent than in a child's education! They are the future of the world don't trust education to just anyone!

    I really love DCCS. Academic and Christian values are great I observed the teachers of all classes and I give them a 5 star. Only one little thing I prayed that God will give the PE teacher a little more patient with the kids otherwise the PE teacher is great. The principal is wonderful with the parents students and staff 5 star for the principal. I'm very impressed with my child achievement test scores! God Bless You DCCS and family.

    Great school! If you want your children to be taught a Christian world-view from caring dedicated hard-working teachers then Deer Creek is the place to send your kids. My experience has been that my kids are MORE than ready for the next level of education they receive and they love going to Deer Creek.

    The friendly atmosphere among students and dedicated teachers who refuse to give nothing less than their best every day.

    Aside from the excellent education my children are receiving the children at the school are kind beyond belief. The older kids are patient friendly and helpful to the younger children. They truly do not mind mentoring and assisting them.

    I have been with Deer Creek as a parent for about 14 years and have loved the school since day one. The children are not viewed upon as simply a number or just a student but rather an extension of a larger family. I have also been extremely pleased with the diversity of the school; it is a true representation of what a melting pot the United States is today.

    I am growing to love Deer Creek Christian School because they have high expectations for the children they provide exceptional learning experiences and are kind & patient with each and every student. What more can a parent ask for?

    Deer Creek Christian is such an amazing school! I am so happy with the caliber of education and the care and patience shown to all. I am so thankful to find a school for my child that feels large but like a family at the same time! He led us to the right place!

    I feel that Deer Creek Christian School is a very good school. In contrast I also feel that when it comes down to teachers (especially a Christian environment) they should be more willing to help our children learn. I was in the field of childern for 23 years and I feel that the kids should get more attention from the staff. I have noticed that on certain occastions the teachers don't give the kids the acknowledgment that they deserve. Most of the things are good at Deer Creek but I just feel that this is a matter that needs to be adjusted!
