    My children who are in early elementary grades have been inspired by their teachers. The principal greets the children every morning as they arrive so the children know he cares. I also appreciate the music and art programs. It is a joy to participate at this school!

    As a graduate of the school in question I would say that much change is need within the green gates of the Christian Academy. Rather not the school itself but the staff it employs. K-5 the teachers are amazing and truly know what they are doing however the rules sometimes limit a child to stay inside the school's box. Moving on to the middle school (6-8). Teaching here has it bright spots; however they a few and far between. Generally the ones who enjoy thinking outside the box and challenging the world around them are stifled. The punishments given rarely fit the crime.

    Pros Academics are their strong suit. Availablility of music art and sports is good for a school this size. There is plenty of opportunity for parental involvement. Cons Strict rigid and inflexible. No room for individuality of the child. Overall Good education but stifling
