    "If you do decide to send your child to school here, my advice to you is to volunteer as a parent helper, or work here yourself. This will guarantee that you will not only be privy to gossip about your child's classmates, but you will also ensure your child will have preference over other children and will be found blameless if ever involved in an incident. Elementary level principal has basic elementary skills in how to handle children. She does not trust her teachers to handle everyday situations because she micromanages them herself. I have observed her over-reacting and handling problems in a one-sided manner with poor mediation skills. Definitely not a Christian caliber! Headmaster is good at under-reacting and avoiding problems. Together they make a great team. Focus in this school is not character-building, and it certainly isn't academics. The curriculum is in no way rigorous enough to prepare kids for college. Emphasis in this school is FUNDRAISING! HCS will overwhelm you with their tuition and constant demands for handouts and underwhelm you with their academics, athletic program, students' standardized test scores, and in practicing the Christian values they preach."

    "My son has attended this school for two years. It is a small school, but it is great because each teacher knows all of the student's names. All of the kids know each other and seem to be pretty close to one another. My son as learned so much and was given more attention when he needed it in certain subjects. I would recommend this school to anyone who was looking for a Christian school to send their child to."

This school is truly creating the leaders that our society needs. The staff, is AMAZING!!! The way conflict is handled in a fair and proper method is very impressive. I would recommend this school to anyone. This school truly is ahead of many, again we are very pleased."

    "We have been parents at this school for six years now and have two children at the school. My husband and I are very pleased with all aspects of the school. I feel that the school Is a great school in all aspects academically, the quality of the faculty, parental involvement and how the leadership team ( principals) handle issues and conflict. I ask parents that are looking at the school to book a tour, ask questions, look at our students test scores and compare them to other schools.... then make the choice that is right for you and your student. That is what we did 6 years ago and it was the best choice for us. Our children are excelling in all avenues, THANK YOU HARRISBURG CHRISTIAN."

    "Curriculum relies on memorization much heavier than critical thinking skills. You will be preached to about partnering with the school to raise your child, and as long as you do things their way, your partnership will be successful. Principal actually said to me that the school couldn't afford to give my child individualized attention. At $8500/year and only a handful of students in the classroom, that is EXACTLY what I thought I was paying for. Now I am paying for it at a school whose employees know what they're doing, and offers things to make my child more well-rounded. Don't waste your money here."
