Awful place. Child abusers.

.

I attended this school late 80's through early 90's. Like most teens, at the time, I was critical of pretty much everything about it. Having aged a few years, hopefully in grace, I now consider it a solid education in a small private school with teachers who sacrifice better pay for the sake of teaching truth. Perfect? No, of course not. Trying hard to be the best they can be? I believe so. I choose to allow my own children the high tech world of cyber-school and the freedom to explore the world with first hand experience rather than in a traditional classroom, but if I needed to send them to a school, this place would certainly be in the top 2 on my list of considerations for the area (just being completely honest).
Unfortunately, at this time, this school is listed as "Bible Baptist Church School" at insiderpages. The true name of the school at this address is "West Chester Christian School." I wonder if that is what's caused the confusion for Virginia's review? I'm almost certain this is not the school she's reviewing. The tuition is considerably less than most other private school (and the teachers' salaries do reflect this), they do have gym (called phys ed), they do have hot lunches (but only once a week), they do have transportation (they use public transportation like most private schools in the area), and they do teach civics (combined with History; called Heritage Studies). They are very patriotic, in my opinion, making it a point to observe and celebrate our Country's holidays and traditions, holding special services for those who have served our country, and they even said the pledge to the flag daily when I was there (I keep in contact with some people there and assume they still do). I'm pretty sure Virginia's speaking of another school, because Bible Baptist is a church with their own private school facilities...they do not use another church's facilities to hold school. It does sound, however, like she had a tough experience wherever she sent her daughters, though. I cannot imagine any of the principals I've known there pushing anyone up against a wall over tardiness or any teacher making a child stand all day over a silly pencil.
So, to wrap, I've been to the school, I know people that send their children there now, even though I currently choose not to, and if someone needed a small private school, I would be willing to point them in that direction. If I were to change something about my own experience there, I would encourage the staff to have a little less worry over the surface appearance and be most concerned for guiding the heart of the student in truth and knowledge. The basic dress code, though not nearly as strict as the one at my first job in the real world, seemed to be a bone of contention for many students. I suppose that's universal, though: teens wanting to bend the rules and push the envelope. =) However, for the record, I do believe I have seen improvement in that area from my distant view-point.

If you are looking for a school that teaches children from a truly Christian perspective I would recommend West Chester Christian. The classes are small and the teachers really care about kids in a Christ-Like way.

I attended this school briefly in the early 1990's. While there, a female friend of mine, who was 15 years old, was paddled my the male principal in his office.

I find this inappropriate. If you do too, save your money and you child's self-esteem and find a better school.

I payed alot to send 2 of my girls there, and they don't offer gym or hot lunches, or transportation. Nor do they offer civics, which is the study of our government.
They have a negative viewpoint of our country and government.
I was the church housekeeper while they were using our church to hold there school and I saw the principal throw/and or push a highschool studend up against the wall because he was late, after the bell rang.
I have seen them embarace kids for the cloths they wore and They made my daughter stand up all day because she forgot her pencil.
They need to know how to live in this world, and only take the good things and walk away from the bad things.
Not recommended at all for your christian kids.

PROS: teachers get good salary
CONS: do not teach the subjects that are required.
