  • My son has attended Spruce Hill Christian School since 3rd grade. He's going to 6th grade next year. The atmosphere has helped him developmentally. Spruce Hill has a very loving environment and your child will be challenged academically. The teachers are GREAT and they really have a genuine concern for my son! If your child is lacking in a subject, all resources are on site to help them in all of their major subjects if need be, in addition to their basic academics. You cannot go wrong sending your child to SHCS. They will receive a very good education while learning about Jesus Christ!

  • My daughter has been at Spruce Hill Christian School since the 3rd grade and will be graduating 8th grade this year. Prior to my daughter reaching the third grade, she attended 4 other schools (2 privates and 2 charters). I guess you can say that I am not an easy parent to please; However, I am very pleased with my daughter's educational career at Spruce Hill Christian School. My main concerns was having my daughter in a school that is academically challenging, supportive, and safe. Spruce Hill has challenged my daughter in multiple ways: academically, spiritually, and socially. The one thing that I must admit that I appreciate the most from this school is their supportive staff and faculty. In all areas that my daughter was challenged, she was given the support needed to meet all of those challenges!
    I am very pleased with the young woman that my daughter has become, thanks to her extended family at Spruce Hill Christian School.
