    "The school is extremely dysfunctional. I graduated from Shades Mountain several years ago. The education is substandard and will not prepare your child for college. The quality teachers have left in recent years leaving a void. Facilities need major upgrading. The teachers are paid very poorly and as a result do not show interest in the students."

    "All I can say is that we LOVE SMCS! Our children transferred to SMCS in 2009 from another private christian school. I'll be the first to say that NO school, private or public, is perfect. However, SMCS comes pretty close to perfect in the areas that matter. The administration and staff truly desire for each student to grow closer to God and strive for academic excellence. We have seen our children grow in both of these areas. We are so thankful to each teacher and administrator for going above and beyond to educate, guide and care for our children. Looking forward to many more years at SMCS! God is doing great things at this school!"

    "After reading all previous reviews, I would like to address a couple of issues that were mentioned. Having been a school parent for two decades, I believe I can objectively speak to some concerns that were raised. For starters...SMCS is a "private" school receiving no funding from any branch of government. There is no such thing as a "subsidized" or "reduced" lunch at SMCS. Therefore, expect to pay higher prices than at a public school cafeteria. The cafeteria staff works hard to provide nutritious choices while at the same time providing appealing choices to the secondary students. Is it a perfect scenario? No, but they do the best they can do within the existing scope. Secondly...bullying exists in all schools because we are an imperfect people living in a fallen world. The administration works diligently to stop bullying as soon as it is made known. Bullying is not a "big" issue at SMCS. Has bullying existed before? Isolated cases sure, because at such a small school, it is much more on the front page than at a large school. SMCS is a Christian school, not a bubble. God allows life issues at SMCS just like at public schools. He's shaping and molding at all times! God reigns!"

    "My daughter has been a student at SMCS for the past three years. I am a public school teacher and have elected to withdraw my daughter from the public school setting in order to have her educated from the biblical world view. I have said many times that moving her was one of the best parenting decisions my husband and I have ever made. God has truly done a work in my daughter's life. We are EXTREMELY pleased with the academics at SMCS. Class sizes are small and the teachers go above and beyond the call of duty! I am so happy that God placed people in my life that moved us in the direction of SMCS. We love it so much we plan to enroll our second child here next year! God is so good to direct our paths and our family is blessed beyond measure with the path He chose for us at SMCS."

    "This is a great time to be part of the Shades Mountain Christian School family! God is doing amazing things in the life of our school, He has positioned us for spiritual and physical growth. Our family joined the SMCS family in 1993 when my nephew started K4 and to date 6 children in our immediate family have attended or are attending SMCS. My husband and I have 2 children at SMCS, a 10th grader and a 6th grader. We are committed to Christian education and count it a privilege to be part of this school family. Check us out at SMCS.org or on Facebook - SMCS Athletics."
